Source Latino is back again with a slew of new hits from Latin artists. The first week of this column we started with rappers, and last week we took a tour around the world to touch different genres of Latin music. This week we’re going to mix it up between rappers and artists from other countries. Here are some recent hits that caught our attention—we’ve noticed major American artists are collaborating with Latin artists quite often nowadays, including Young Thug and the King of the Trill, Bun B. Check out the selections below.
Wisin y Yandel: “El Perdedor Remix”
It seems no one in reggaeton puts out more music then Wisin y Yandel. They consistently drop videos, new music and remixes to keep the dance floors packed. Evident in this recent video packed with beach-front shots, sexy women and a sexy ensemble of cheerleaders.
GT Garza: “Out My Circle”
GT Garza is back and the Texas rapper does his best auto-tune, slab riding track blend. The slow-paced joint features a Drake-esque hook and a melodic rhyme style that changes things up from his usual hard raps, rejecting would be haters in his circle.
Kap G featuring Young Thug: “Don’t Need Em”
Kap G is one of the hottest young Latin acts, surprisingly coming out of Atlanta. Of course recruiting Thugger is going to draw fans and attention. The Atlanta MC recently took his first trip to Mexico City and reconnected to his roots, which turned out to be an eye opening experience for him. Check out this new video from Kap G featuring the ever magnetizing Young Thug.
The Guadaloops: Almanueva
All throughout the Latin music world we are experiencing genre-blending of all types. The Mexican group The Guadaloops are no exception. Using elements of Jazz, they trio reminds us more of A Tribe Called Quest type of Latin group. The Jazz based beats smooth over hard, raspy rhymes, smooth soul samples and serenading vocals. Their upcoming project Almanueva is sure to do more of that. Check out a song from the album here.
King Lil G: Lost in Smoke 2
Los Angeles based rapper King Lil G dropped this gem of a album a couple months ago and it deserves a listen. The project gives fans who are unfamiliar with Lil G a better understanding of who he is. “Texas Cups, Cali Blunts” features Bun B one half of the legendary Texas group UGK. The song is smooth, with a seductive sample and the hard rhymes of both MCs bringing the heat.
