The 28-year-old Colombian reggaeton singer and songwriter, who won the Best New Artistaward at last year’s Latin Grammys, is sharing the track list for her sophomore album Ocean, which she’ll release on Friday, May 3.
Karol G took to social media to reveal the track list for the album, which will be home to 16 new songs including “Culpables” with Anuel AA, “Mi Cama (Remix)” with J Balvin and Nicky Jam, “Creeme” with Maluma, and her recent single “Punto G.”
Karol G’s new project represents a personal and professional milestone.
“I worked with different producers from all genres, trying to bridge different styles of music, from urban to electronica to ballads,” she previously said in an interview with Ocean Drive magazine. “I put a lot of emphasis on the composition of the songs and the creative production. We finished it in Turks and Caicos because I wanted to capture the essence of the title. Imagine creating music in the middle of the sea. Spectacular!”
According to Karol G, “a percentage of the profits will go toward cleaning the ocean. It is our job to make a difference and leave the world a better place.”
The 28-year-old Colombian reggaeton singer-songwriter and Maluma’s “Créeme” rockets to the top of Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart on the ranking dated March 2 as the song vaults 9-1 in its 15th week.
“Créeme,” which is Karol G and Maluma’s first collaboration, crowns the list thanks to a hefty 59 percent increase in audience impressions (to 14.54 million) collected in the week ending February 24.
While Karol G earns her third No. 1, Maluma clocks his 12th.
“I’m aware that the industry is full of talent and great songs, so today I’m happy that among so many songs mine, alongside Maluma, is No. 1,” Karol G tells Billboard. “I never cease to be amazed; these are the things that continue to fill me with motivation to overcome anything.”
“Créeme” reinforces its multi-format demand as the single reaches new peaks on both, the Latin Pop Songs and Latin Rhythm Airplay charts, arriving at No. 1 on both lists. On the former, the song takes the Greatest Gainer honors, while on the latter, the Most Increased Audiencetrophy.
