Que Triste by Warner Music Latina via 360 Magazine

“QUE TRISTE” by PISO 21 & CARÍN LEÓN

Piso 21 releases new single ”QUE TRISTE” with Carín León. The Colombian supergroup gears up to perform at the 2022 Latin Billboard Awards on September 29

“QUE TRISTE” Available HERE

One of the Latin music industry’s most prolific and versatile groups, Piso 21, unites with regional Mexican singer and songwriter, Carín León, for the release of their latest song, “Que Triste”. The song and its official music video are available to stream on all digital platforms today.

Intentionally crafted to create the perfect fusion between two very different worlds of music, this newest hit pushes past creative barriers as Piso 21 makes a meticulous decision to produce something that further solidifies their versatility as artists. A play of references, the meaning of “Que Triste” is evident in its ties to its melancholic and wistful melodies over a slower tempo. Molded perfectly to highlight the essence of all of the artists, Piso 21’s dynamic and multifaceted vocals intertwine seamlessly with Carín León’s rhythmic and signature vocalization as they weave a story of the sadness that comes with not being valued by their female protagonists as she walks out of their lives.

In the video, directed by Juan Felipe Zuleta, we find ourselves on an intimate journey as the main protagonist, Manu Fajardo, embodies the raw and heartfelt emotions brought forth by “Que Triste” through an emotional and isolated performance. The video sees Piso 21 and Carín León perform their verses throughout a series of snippets, effortlessly capturing the essence and story behind the song.

The debut of “Que Triste” comes at an exciting time for Piso 21 as they get ready to take the stage at the 2022 Latin Billboard Awards. The supergroup was also nominated at this year’s Latin Billboard Awards under the “Latin Rhythm Artist of the Year, Duo or Group” category. The ceremony will be broadcast live from the Watsco Center in Miami, FL on Thursday, September 29 at 7pm EST on Telemundo.

“Que Triste” follows in the footsteps of their current hit, “Los Cachos,” alongside Manuel Turizo. “Los Cachos” sees Piso 21 and Turizo join forces again for the first time since their 2018 classic, “Dejala Que Vuelva,” which remains a career-defining hit single for both artists. To date, “Los Cachos” has garnered over 60 million combined streams and over 24 million views on YouTube.

Piso 21 has continuously delivered hit after hit this year – after the release of their multi-platinum 2021 album, El Amor En Los Tiempos Del Perreo, they have released a steady stream of singles and features with Blessd, Ovy On The Drums, Santa Fe Klan, Dimelo Flow, Boza, Mau y Ricky, Prince Royce, Gerardo Ortiz, Khea, amongst others. Currently, Piso 21 is on the road touring internationally through LATAM and beyond as they gear up for the highly anticipated release of their album, “777.”

Te Olvida via NV Marketing and Public Relations for use by 360 Magazine

Manuel Torizo – Te Olvido

Latin music superstar Manuel Torizo released his new song and music video, “Te Olvido.”

“Te Olvido” is a ballad that turns into a slow-tempo reggaeton that talks about being deceived by the person you thought was your partner and asking them to never come back. The song begins with Torizo giving us the backstory of the situation before transitioning to the pre-chorus, and finally dropping the beat in the chorus. 

“Don’t even bother giving my an explanation // If you ever think of apologizing when you’re alone // I hope you don’t even try it // Just remember I was rooting for you, and you threw everything out the window // You didn’t care how much I valued you, it just ended in lies,” Manuel Turizo begins singing, portraying his heartbreak with a lot of feeling that comes through his performance.

The music video, directed by P The Chemist, shows Manuel accepting the heartbreak and promising himself to forget that deception in one night. The inspiration behind it was the year 2000, which is the year when Manuel was born and will be the name of his upcoming third album. In the video, the viewer immerses themself in a memorable trip to the past with very recognizable tributes to shows, fashion, and celebrities that shaped a generation.

The video begins in a girl’s bedroom, exactly how you’d expect a teenager in the 2000s to decorate her room. Her TV is on, where we see the first hint of Manuel before taking us into his universe which feels like a mix of MTV Cribs and Entertainment Tonight. His fashion choices are very reminiscent of the styles of icons such as Pharrell, Nelly, and even Justin Timberlake, as he shows how he’s now getting over the heartbreak.

About Manuel Turizo

Manuel Turizo found fame after releasing his song “Una Lady Como Tù” (1.5 billion views) in 2016 and topping Colombia’s and then Latin America’s charts. This unprecedented success caught the attention of Juan Diego Medina and La Industria INC, who signed him as their artist to continue pushing a successful career of a very talented young man. His following singles “Esperàndote” and “Culpables” have garnered over 700 million views each, further cementing the career of Manuel Turizo among Latin music’s favorites.

He’s collaborated with names such as Nicky Jam, Ozuna, Darell, Noriel, Anuel AA, Zion & Lennox, Wisin & Yandel, Rauw Alejandro, Myke Towers, Piso 21, Maluma, Sech, Jay Wheeler, Mau & Ricky, Camilo, and more, and his songs have received multiple certifications from gold to platinum. He’s been nominated for Premios Juventud, Latin American Music Awards, Premios Tu Mùsica Urbano, Latin Billboards, and Latin Grammys.
