Sebastián Yatra releases new music via 360 MAGAZINE

Matteo Bocelli × Sebastián Yatra

Italian singer-songwriter Matteo Bocelli and Colombian singer-songwriter Sebastián Yatra released a romantic new single as a three-track EP with renditions of the song in English (“Until She’s Gone”), Spanish (“Tu Luz Quedó”) and Italian (“Un Attimo di Te”). The tender ballad conveying regrets and hope for reconciliation, performed remarkably by the acclaimed vocalists, who are accompanied by poignant piano and soaring strings, is complemented with a stunning music video shot in the Mediterranean island of Malta. All three versions of the song were produced by Mauricio Rengifo and Andrés Torres, who have helmed such multi-Platinum hits as Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito.” Matteo Bocelli wrote the track with Jez Ashurst and Emma Rohan (Little Mix, Susan Boyle). Yatra collaborated with Matteo on the Spanish lyrics.

Listen HERE.

Matteo Bocelli says, “‘Until She’s Gone’ is an incredible romantic ballad that I had the pleasure of singing with my friend Sebastián Yatra. I met him two years ago and we immediately connected on a musical and personal level. I am so honored to sing this song with him in Spanish, English and Italian. It is truly an international project.”

Sebastián Yatra added, “Matteo is a terrific artist and I am deeply excited about singing such a beautiful song with him and about having the opportunity of doing so in Spanish, English and also Italian. I’ve always been inspired by the Italian language and their music, starting from Matteo’s father Andrea Bocelli. Matteo and I had a spectacular time in Malta shooting the video and hopefully we will get to sing this song live many times.”

Bocelli and Yatra perform the three versions outdoors, directed by Italian filmmaker Cosimo Alemà. The video for “Tu Luz Quedó,” which was released today, can be viewed HERE. Watch for the YouTube Premiere of the official video for “Until She’s Gone” on Monday, April 11, and for the “Un Attimo di Te” official video soon after.

The three videos were shot in the unique setting of the Island of Malta, thanks to Visit Malta, Ministry of Tourism and Consumer Protection, Malta Tourism Authority, the Mediterranean Tourism Foundation and Malta Hotels and Restaurants Association (MHRA).

Yatra recently stunned at the 94th annual Academy Awards performing a beautiful rendition of the RIAA certified Gold “Dos Oruguitas” from The Walt Disney animated film “ENCANTO” which was nominated this year for an Oscar and a Golden Globe. The multi-platinum singer-songwriter also recently released a powerful bilingual celebration of his single “Tacones Rojos” which reached #1 on Latin Radio in the US, from his multi-platinum new album “Dharma,” which is the #1 streamed Latin album released this year on Spotify. The genre-bending 17-track third studio album’ features his 8x platinum hit “Pareja del Año,” 4x platinum smash “Chica Ideal,” and the Latin GRAMMYs nominated ballad “Adios,” and boasts 5.4 Billion combined streams. While Yatra has released bilingual collaborations in the past, “Un Attimo di Te” is his first recording in Italian. Currently nominated for five Latin American Music Awards, and starring in Netflix’s “Érase Una Vez Pero Ya No,” he will resume his 2022 ‘Dharma World Tour’ later this month with a series of dates in Mexico, followed by the US and Canada. 

Earlier this year, Matteo Bocelli made his Spanish language recording debut with “Dime,” which he also recorded in Italian (“Dimmi”). He recently joined his father, opera legend Andrea Bocelli, on a sold out U.S. arena tour, which included two shows at Madison Square Garden shows in New York City and the Hollywood Bowl. Matteo Bocelli, who is graduating at the Conservatory of Lucca in Tuscany, began learning piano at age six. At 18, he made his stage debut, singing Verdi at the Rome Colosseum. Much of the world first heard Matteo’s mellifluous vocals and textured piano playing on 2018’s “Fall on Me,” the English/Italian duet he co-wrote for Andrea Bocelli’s chart-topping Sì album. The song, which went on to soundtrack Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, has attained over 300 million combined global streams. Matteo released his fittingly titled debut single “Solo” in 2021. Combined global streams of the song have surpassed seven million and views of the official video now exceed five million. He performed the follow-up single, “Close,” on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” in January 2022.

Kid Flex – Esperando Pa Verte

Following the release of his single “No Soy Perfecto,” Kid Flex releases his latest single Esperando Pa Verte. The song and official music video are available on all digital platforms starting today.

Esperando Pa Verte,” written by Stefano Fernandez and produced by Kid Flex and Were, is a song that, like ‘No Soy Perfecto’ focuses on the reflections of a past love and the consequences of actions previously taken.

Esperando Pa Verte is a song that talks about the desire of a guy who is very anxious to once again see the girl he loves so much, with whom he has had problems and arguments but despite it all, he promises to respect her and be there for her, even when she doesn’t want to hear from him,” commented Kid Flex.

In the music video, directed by Giacomo Cochella, we see Kid Flex deep in thought as he sits in the living room of an almost empty house glued to the phone with the illusion of being able to contact the person he cherishes and continues to love. Kid Flex continues to work on new music expected soon under Warner Music Latina.

ABOUT KID FLEX:

Composer, musician, and producer. KID FLEX, does not show his face, because he wants to be the voice of a community that perhaps is not heard often. Through music, he tells his stories and his feelings, but he wants to transcend. His public image is a television, where his community is projected. He does not reveal his identity because he prefers to be a symbol rather than just being a person.

Justin Quiles – Gucci Fendi

Latin GRAMMY-nominated vocalist and singer-songwriter, Justin Quiles, announced today his long-awaited and first homecoming concert in his native Puerto Rico. The show will take place at the Coca-Cola Music Hall on May 20th with special guest appearances. Tickets will go on sale tomorrow, Saturday, March 12th at 11:00 am on ticketera.com. The show is being produced by Paco Lopez for No Limit Entertainment

I am happy to finally bring my show to  my island and give fans what they have been asking for, for so long. We have a super fun show and will give fans a good time! Vamos Puerto Rico!” commented Quiles.

Last night, Quiles released his latest hit song “Gucci Fendi” alongside fellow Puerto Rican rapper Eladio Carrion. “Gucci Fendi” is the first song off of his next studio album slated for release in 2022. The song, along with the official video, are available to stream on all digital platforms today.

Each track the multi-platinum artist releases is another song in a lengthy repertoire of certified hits — with “Gucci Fendi” being no exception. The song not only demonstrates his exceptional versatility, but also the growth he has endured as an artist. On “Gucci Fendi,” Justin incorporates skilled lyrical mastery and creates a song that is relevant and relatable about the need to always look “on point” when stepping out. Carrion’s inclusion on the track further elevates it and adds the perfect notes of grittiness with his flow and unique vocals. Directed by Fernando Lugo, the video features some of today’s hottest fashions set against a monochromatic backdrop to further highlight its exclusivity. 

Quiles has enjoyed a career filled with a myriad of milestones that have catapulted him into another level of global success and reach within Latin music. The singer-songwriter wrapped up an impressive 2021 by surpassing 1 billion combined global streams of his successful third studio album, “La Última Promesa.” The album reached #1 on Apple Music’s “Top Album Charts,” #1 BTS video on Apple Music’s “Top Video Charts,” #1 on iTunes, garnered 1 million streams on the first day of release on Apple Music alone, and #3 on Spotify’s Global Top Album Debuts (#1 Latin album). “La Ultima Promesa” is also home to several multi-platinum hits released prior to the album such as: Loco featuring Zion & Lennox and Chimbala, which reached #1 on U.S. radio the week of the album’s release and has surpassed over 185.9 million views on YouTube, was certified 2x Platinum in Spain, reached #1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart, #1 on Latin Rhythm Airplay, #10 on the Latin Digital Song Sales chart, #13 on Hot Latin Songs, and currently sits at #1 in the United States and Spain; PAM featuring superstars Daddy Yankee and El Alfa, whose video has over 91.1 million views and entered the Top 10 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs and Latin Airplay charts for over 15 weeks; and Jeans with over 213 million views and certified Platinum in the United States, Diamond in Chile, Platinum in Spain, 2x Platinum in Argentina, 4x Platinum in Peru and 3x Platinum in Mexico. Adding to the success of “La Última Promesa,” he released the official video of his single Colorín Colorado — quickly becoming one of the hitmaker’s fan favorites. Since its release, it has already accumulated more than 42 million views on YouTube and more than 492 million streams worldwide.

There is no doubt that as Justin Quiles continues along with his illustrious career, he will continue to position himself as one of the most versatile and sought-after artists and composers in the urban genre. To date, Justin has accumulated more than 4.2 billion combined global streams. The globally renowned hitmaker is also currently gearing up for his run across the United States that will be making stops in four major cities at the beginning of April 2022. The tour will make stops in New York, Philadelphia, Washington D.C. Boston and Puerto Rico.

EVAN CRAFT DROPS DOUBLE ALBUM

Singer/Songwriter Evan Craft Drops Double Album Holy Ground Oct. 1

Holy Ground/Tierra Santa to be released in both English and Spanish.

On the heels of the success of Desesperado, Evan Craft’s double album released in 2020 in English and Spanish with a deluxe bilingual album as well, the singer/songwriter released his next full-length worship album Holy Ground (English) and Tierra Santa (Spanish) simultaneously today, Friday, October 1.

This will be Craft’s first release as a married man! Him and his wife, Rachel, were married outside Nashville, Tennessee, on September 17.

Music Background

Craft’s most recent single Be Alright, landed the #1 spot on Christian radio Mediabase audience, #3 on Billboard’s Christian/Gospel songs chart, #5 on the Billboard Christian songs chart and cracked the top 20 at radio in three weeks. The album, Desesperado, debuted at #42 on the Billboard Top 100 Christian chart.

The successes of Be Alright have garnered Craft nearly 1 billion online streams and millions of subscribers and followers across social media platforms such as YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and Spotify.

The release of Holy Ground/Tierra Santa takes Craft back to the start, “Holy Ground is a very special album because it goes back to my roots as a worship leader.” He also mentions the goal he has in mind, “I get to incorporate Spanish language and experiences embedded in the lyrics from my travels throughout Latin America. We started out the year releasing pop music but I also want to lead people to a place of worship and to experience God in a very real way.”

Collaborations on this double release include Christine D’Clario on the feature track Healer, Pat Barrett (Same Spirit), Miel San Marcos (Looks Like Heaven) and Ke’Erron (Fix My Eyes/You Keep Hope Alive).

Latinx Impact

While not Hispanic, Craft has become a welcomed artist in the Latinx community not only for his authentic music, but his actions behind the words. To date he has raised more than $250k for the homeless mission in Los Angeles he co-founded called Mi Casa LA. In 2018 he rode his bicycle 1,200 miles across South America in a fundraising effort for various causes. A book and documentary of this trek are currently in the works.

Early in his career, Craft developed a deep love for the Latinx community in and around his Thousand Oaks, California, community. He began learning Spanish in high school to help his father who was running a homeless shelter in Los Angeles. In an effort to fully immerse himself in the Latin culture, Craft traveled to Mexico and other Latin American countries, which would spawn his first Spanish album.

He recorded Yo Soy Segundo in 2012 and much to Craft’s surprise, it became the No. 1 Latin Christian album. More mission trips would follow to South America and Craft’s online Spanish interpretations of popular worship songs have generated millions of views and earned him a devoted following.

“I have felt an incredible reception in Latin America,” Craft said. “I’ve been to Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina, Chile and 99% of the people have honestly embraced me. It’s overwhelming and humbling.”

BIA RELEASES NEW SONG AND MUSIC VIDEO BESITO FEAT. G HERBO

Multi-platinum-certified Boston-born and Los Angeles-based artist BIA released her new song and music video “Besito” featuring Chicago rapper G Herbo.

Besito” is a track that features BIA’s signature sound and distinctive voice, with her usual girl empowerment theme, encouraging her female listeners to think they’re all that because they are, as she exposes her accomplishments to inspire girls and women while motivating them to never settle.

This time around, BIA opted to give us a deeper look into her universe as an Afro-Puerto Rican and Italian artist raised in Massachusetts switching from Spanish to English with sharp and witty verses in a new, contemporary hip-hop style that reflects how global her music is.

“Besito” featuring G Herbo comes after “Whole Lotta Money Remix” featuring Nicki Minaj.

ABOUT BIA

Multi-Platinum Recording Artist BIA is known for music that possesses both biting wit and boldly authentic swag that stems from BIA’s years traveling through the Boston rap scene, later moving over to Miami, Los Angeles, and then taking over the world. With every mixtape, collaboration, and guest appearance, BIA has only amplified her reach. She dominated 2020 with a fresh new perspective: she inked a deal with Epic Records, dropped the hard-hitting “Free BIA (1st Day Out)” and the intoxicating “COVERGIRL”, as well as dove further into the fashion world with a feature in Good American’s Spring 2020 campaign and Missguided x Sean John Fall 2020 capsule collection.

By the end of 2020, she dropped her For Certain EP, armed with the hit single “Whole Lotta Money” — a song with a central message that unlimited currency can be both mental and physical. The EP reached the Top 10 of Billboard’s Heatseekers Album Charts, and “Whole Lotta Money” became an undeniable force, due in part to its continuous viral success on TikTok. The track has jumped right off the platform and into streaming stardom, marking its territory in the Spotify Viral 50 Chart as well as the Global Spotify Charts and earning her a nomination for “Best Breakthrough Song” at the 2021 MTV VMAs. In addition, BIA’s reimagined version of her hit song “Skate” was featured in the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs tune-in promos on NHLNetwork, NBC and NBCSN in the U.S., Sportsnet and TVA Sports in Canada, and across the NHL’s social and digital platforms.

Los Bukis – Una Historia Cantada Tour

LOS BUKIS Make History With The First TWO SOLD-OUT Full Capacity Concert Performances At Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium For Thousands Of Fans

The Legendary Regional Mexican Band Kicked Off Their Limited Engagement UNA HISTORIA CANTADA Stadium Tour With What Press Hailed As: Triumphant concerts with a packed house… an extraordinary and magical evening… a dream setlist where the hits kept coming… These concerts will remain in the memory of those present, forever and ever

LOS BUKIS UNA HISTORIA CANTADA Tour Continues Next With SOLD-OUT September 4th & 5th Concerts At Chicago’s Famed SOLDIER FIELD – Followed By Additional Stadium Dates In Houston, Dallas, San Antonio & Oakland (See Below)

This last weekend Los Bukis kicked off their highly anticipated Una Historia Cantada Tour to keep writing their history in gold letters and setting themselves up for musical immortality.

The appointment was at 8 pm for the two-day concerts, where thousands of attendees gathered to see Marco Antonio Solís, José Javier Solís, Joel Solís, Roberto Guadarrama, Eusebio El Chivo Cortéz and Pedro Sánchez reunite on the stage. The stadium thundered as the audience sang along hits such as Tu Cárcel, Mi Fantasía and Y Ahora Te Vas at the top of their lungs, embarking on a trip into melancholy, love and memories with these and many more songs that are hailed as Latin music classics.

People at the venue drove miles –some even traveled from many parts of the country and abroad– to watch the legendary band perform music that has passed from generation to generation and bring families together for this historic event.

More than 90 minutes on stage to tell relatable, crowd-pleasing stories and bring generations and nations together through the universal language of music. This certainly was an explosive starting signal for a tour that has started to be written in gold in music history books.

Una historia cantada continues next at Chicago’s Soldier Field on September 4th & 5th. On September 10th and 11th, Marco Antonio will perform at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas alongside special guests to celebrate the National Holidays and will then re-join the tour for performances at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on September 15th and Houston’s NRG Stadium on September 18th. The band has already added more dates at San Antonio’s Alamodome (September 25th) and Oakland’s RingCentral Coliseum (October 1st and 2nd.) 

The feeling within the stadium was completely indescribable – it was surreal to be able to see Los Bukis reunite after 25 years and watch as they performed to the sold out crowds who were dancing and singing every word, said Hans Schafer, SVP of Touring and Head of Live Nation Latin. This is a once-in-a-lifetime moment that generations of Bukis fans were able to experience all together under the same roof and I am so proud and thankful for everyone who helped make this happen from the band and their team, the Live Nation Latin team, all of the venues, and every single person that played a role here – it takes a village, and this village made something magical happen that means so much to so many people. – Hans Schafer, SVP of Touring and Head of Live Nation Latin

[For] a roaring Los Angeles crowd that waited more than 25 years to see the superstar ensemble back together onstage… It was a dream setlist… [from] ‘The Mexican Beatles’… Romanticism is the essence of Los Bukis’ songs, so it was no surprise that their over two-hour set would be an ode to love… Fans never got to sit as the hits kept coming… as relatable now as decades ago..  From cumbias to rancheras and, of course, breakup ballads… [And,] from the parking lot to inside the venue, everywhere you looked there was a family taking a selfie… That’s the magic of Los Bukis, their ability to bring multigenerational families together. – Billboard

Iconic Mexican band Los Bukis kick off tour with sold-out show[s] at SoFi Stadium. It was a packed house as… adoring Los Bukis fans got to see the legendary Mexican band on stage for the first time in 25 years… Tickets for the band’s first show at the 70,000-seat venue sold out within minutes, prompting the addition of a second show– which also quickly soldout…  their songs bring back a lifetime of memories…with sons & daughters surprising their parents with a gift of tickets. – KABC News

Los Bukis make history with SoFi Stadium debut… The Bukis not only filled the stadium twice (a challenge for any group or soloist), but also filled the hearts and souls of their fans after 25 years of waiting… With a journey through memory and romanticism… The legendary band surpassed expectations with two successful concerts that wrote in gold letters the first pages in the history of the huge and elegant new Los Angeles stadium that was built, for the most part, by the hands of Hispanic workers….   These concerts will remain in the memory of those present, who without realizing it are already part of ‘Una Historia Cantada’ and that will surely be told forever and ever Los Angeles Times en Espanol.
