Eladio Carrión feat. Anuel AA, Sad Summer (Rhymes Entertainment)

Two Puerto Rican powerhouses, two broken hearts, and one explosive love blow lead to “Triste Verano.” One of the most anticipated teams of music urban game, Latin trap superstars Eladio Carrion and Anuel AA spit verses as two abandoned comrades who aren’t too proud to pray against the invigorating interplay between Latin trap and reggaeton. “Summer without you, you’ve got me here from June to August” yells Carrión, a sly reference to labelmate Bunny’s latest album (meaning “Summer without you, you’ve got me here from June to August”). Spring song with a sad theme surprises a season too early due to an inadvertent leak. “This is a song I accidentally posted as a story. It was only about 15 seconds and then I deleted it. So this is probably one of the songs and the collaboration that my fans have been waiting for,” says Carrion Billboard Español. the huge bastard will launch his own Sauce Boyz Fest this May, along with a line of beer, La H. — ISABELLA RAIGOZA

Marshmello & Farruko, “Esta Vida” (Sony Music Latin)

After the hit “El Merengue”, the enigmatic masked DJ Marsmello returns to the Spanish music market to release his latest Latin collaboration “Esta Vida” with Farruko. The track maintains the Puerto Rican artist’s trademark electronic sound that has propelled him to the top Billboards Hot Latin Songs and Hot Dance/Electronic Songs charts in the past, but the American DJ takes it a step further with an electro-house mix that elevates it with synths and a danceable beat.

The lyrics convey a different message that reflects his newfound life path, and the video only complements it, showing Faruko living two parallel but contrasting lives, as a homeless person and as a rich celebrity. “Let them talk, let them say, live your life, I live mine/ I’m tired of the lies, of so much falsification of the same system/ I’ve found a way out of my problems/ Now that I’ve changed for the better, don’t take it in the wrong way,” he sings. The track made its live debut while headlining the DJ’s Ultra Music Festival on March 26 — and you can’t please everyone, as they mention in the chorus, but they’re sure to please many with this collaboration. — LOUISE STREET

Boza & Dalex, “Volar” (Sony Music Latin)

Marking his first official single of the year, Boza enlists Dalex for “Volar” (Fly). Departing from the signature reggae plen and afrobeat melodies that characterize his music, Bosa experiments with infectious electronic beats led by Colombian hitmaker Sky Rompiendo. However, the common denominator is his romantic and flirtatious lyrics: “Kiss me and tell me how you feel/ If you want to say it again, it’s enough for me/ Time without you is time wasted/ I feel alive when I’m with you/ Show me how to fly,” says the chorus. The Panamanian and the Boricua star (who is making a comeback in his own right) join forces in a song about falling deeply in love with a girl and experiencing the highest emotions. The music video – in which Bosa does passionate make-up with a model – is also representative of this. — JESSICA ROYSE

Felipe Pelaez, Magic (Art Productions)

Vallenato superstar Felipe Peláez dips his toes into his first ranchera for his new single ‘Magia’, also marking the first track from his upcoming album A Dream Called Ranchera. If ‘Magia’ is any indication, the set will be made up entirely of soulful ranchera tunes backed by his passionate and signature vocals. In true Pelaez style, “Magia” highlights the incomparable, life-changing magic of love through its lyrics. Written by the artist, the traditional mariachi song is a love poem that best demonstrates Pelaez’s versatility in adapting music to genres of all kinds. — INGRED FAJARDO

Zuco 103, “Postcard” (Zuco Sound)

Lilian Vieira’s melodious voice is ear candy on Zuco 103’s “Postcard,” part of the Brazilian-Dutch music ensemble’s album Telenovela released on Friday. Sung in Portuguese, this elegant bossa nova with hints of jazz and funk is about home not just being a place, but a sense of belonging. The accompanying music video, directed by Chris de Krijger, was shot in her hometown in Brazil and shows Vieira surrounded by the beauty of nature and the embrace of her family in Teresópolis. “[This] the video and the song are actually a summary of my life away from home, it’s a reflection,” says the Netherlands-based singer. “To leave your place and go looking so far away for what you have in abundance in a hug, in unpretentious light conversation and the unique and inexplicable sounds of nature and the richness of belonging to a place.” — SIGAL RATNER-ARIA
