The 27-year-old Colombian singer and songwriter has recruited some big name Latin stars for the recently released remix of his single “Porfa.”
Feid recruited his good friends J Balvin, Nicky Jam, Maluma and Sech for the star-studded collaboration.
The original Sky Rompiendo-produced track, released late last year, featured Justin Quiles.
The song perfectly highlights Feid’s distinguishable R&B-tropical-pop fusions. In February, he dropped the official music video.
With the remix, Feid has coined the song as “possibly his best song all year.”
“Porfa” is about wanting your ex to come back to you.
“I ask you to please don’t leave, stay with me/ I lost track of all the days I haven’t eaten/ I’m going crazy looking for you and I can’t find you/ I don’t want to touch anyone else to be with you,” the lyrics express.
On the remix, the collaborators spit their verses asking for their girl to return.
The nearly seven-minute music video shows all six artists performing the song in a neon-drenched room with old televisions as different models are wandering alone as a sign that they’re enjoying their independence.
On the Billboard charts, “Porfa” has secured chart entries on Hot Latin Songs and Latin Airplay charts.
The 25-year-old Colombian singer/songwriter’s “TBT” single with Rauw Alejandro and Manuel Turizo has risen to the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart dated July 4, dethroning the Black Eyed Peas, Ozuna and J. Rey Soul’s from their one-week reign with “Mamacita.”
“I wrote this song over a year ago with Sech in Miami,” says Yatra. “We started writing a story based on personal situations we were both going through over a guitar riff. It’s a reggaetóntune with strong pop elements co-produced by the XAXO brothers with Andrés Torres and Mauricio Rengifo. It also has its romantic touch, which is something I vibrate with strongly.”
Yatra, Alejandro and Turizo reach the summit in the song’s 14th week thanks to its 12.42 million in audience impressions (up 7 percent) earned in the week ending June 28, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
“Its journey to the top is a reflection of how the song has been getting into people little by little,” Yatra continues. “It’s also a reflection of the perseverance of my team at Universal. Nowadays it is very easy to release a song and get lost in so many things — the news, our daily routines. We’ve done a nice job with ‘TBT.’”
It’s the first No. 1 for Alejandro, who began his Latin Airplaycareer a little over a year ago when he secured his first chart entry with “Luz Apaga,” with Ozuna and Lyanno (No. 48 peak, Feb. 16, 2019-dated survey).
“I was super happy to work with Manuel Turizo and Rauw Alejandro, who are both on fire these days,” Yatra adds. “They are not only extremely talented, but both have big hearts. So happy to be next to Rauw as he gets his first No. 1 on Latin Airplay. Without a doubt he’s one of the few newcomers who will leave a mark. I’m such a fan of him, his versatility and ability to create.”
As “TBT” hits No. 1 on the Latin Airplay chart, Yatra nabs his seventh leader. His first No. 1 dates back to when “Robarte Un Beso,” with Carlos Vives, ruled for one week in January 2018.
Turizo, meanwhile secures his second No. 1.
Elsewhere on the Latin charts, “TBT” remains atop the Latin Rhythm Airplay chart for a second week, and moves into the top 20 on Hot Latin Songs, which blends airplay, digital sales and streaming data.
Alejandro joins a group of other eight acts who have claimed their first No. 1 in 2020:
Artist, Song Title, Date Reached No. 1 Black Eyed Peas, “Ritmo (Bad Boys For Life),” with J Balvin, Feb. 8 Nicki Minaj, “Tusa,” with Karol G, Feb. 15 Static & Ben El, “Súbelo (Further Up),” with Pitbull and Chesca, March 28 Chesca, “Súbelo (Further Up),” with Static & Ben El and Pitbull, March 28 Ne-Yo, “Me Quedaré Contigo,” with Pitbull, featuring Lenier and El Micha, April 18 Lenier, “Me Quedaré Contigo,” with Pitbull, Ne-Yo, also featuring El Micha, April 18 El Micha, “Me Quedaré Contigo,” with Pitbull, Ne-Yo, also featuring Lenier, April 18 J.Rey Soul, “Mamacita,” with Black Eyed Peas, June 20 Camilo, “Si Me Dices Que Si,” with Reik and Farruko, June 27 Rauw Alejandro, “TBT,” with Sebastián Yatra and Manuel Turizo, July 4
The global pandemic isn’t slowing down Lenny Tavárez…
The 32-year-old Puerto Rican singer has dropped two new singles, “La Pared 360” and “ACEROLA,” as well as released a special playlist to help you get your mind of COVID-19.
“Health comes first of all, so I hope that everyone is taking the necessary measures and that no one is suffering from serious conditions due to the coronavirus,” Tavárez tells Billboard.“Here is a list of the songs that I have listened to the most and that have helped me disconnect from these current times.”
Tavárez’s playlist, titled “#Crack Music,” includes sensual Latin R&B hits fromDalexand Sechto some of his popular features, like “Bellaquita” and “Hola.”
#Crac kis the name of Tavarez’s upcoming album and makes reference to the popular Spanish saying “sos un crack,” which means “you are awesome.”
The 27-year-old Puerto Rican rapper and singer’s single “KEII” has reached the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Latin Airplay Chart.
“KEII” leads the list in its 11th week on the survey and picks up a 48% increase in audience impressions (to 15.9 million) earned in the week ending April 26, according to Nielsen Music.
It’s his third No. 1 on the Latin Airplay chart. He’s previously reached the summit with “China,” featuring Daddy Yankee, Karol G, Ozuna and J Balvin, and the “Otro Trago Remix” with Sech, Ozuna, Nicky Jam and Darrell.
The song also tops the Latin Rhythm Airplaychart dated May 2, 2020 as song the jumps 6-1.
Bad Bunnyis doing whatever he wants, including releasing a new surprise album…
The 25-year-old Puerto Rican Latin trap and reggaeton singer released YHLQMDLG, which stands for “Yo hago lo que me da la gana,” on Saturday at midnight.
The title is a testament to what Bad Bunny’s fans love about him. From redefining men’s fashion to his outspokenness about Puerto Rican politics, Bad Bunny has always stayed true to himself.
“My job is what I’m passionate about. I simply do what fulfills me,” Bad Bunny told Entertainment Tonight, ahead of the album drop. “I try to please people. I try to please myself.”
The sprawling 20-track album includes an all-star lineup of guest stars, including Daddy Yankee, Ñengo Flow, Sech and Jowell y Randy— as well as uncredited vocals by Arcángel, Anuel AA and Myke Towers. The song “Bichiyal” also features a surprise comeback from Puerto Rican cult favorite, Yaviah.
Said Bad Bunny of the new album on Twitter Friday afternoon:“Les recomiendo que esta noche se reunan con sus amistades y seres queridos, compren cervezas, tengan el surtido correcto para toda la noche y la pasen cabrón escuchando mi álbum.” In short, the album goes down best with a few beers and your best buddies.
Bad Bunny’s star has been on the meteoric rise since 2018. After he dropped his debut album X 100pre, which won best urban music album at the Latin Grammys, he released an album with J Balvin the very next year, Oasis.
The 25-year-old Puerto Rican Latin trap and reggaeton singer has joined forces with Spotify to give fans a look at his upcoming third studio album ahead of its release on Saturday.
Titled Yo Hago Lo Que Me Da La Gana, Bad Bunny and the digital music service app developed a lookbook with different styles, sets and images that speak to five songs and musical storylines from the album.
Throughout the avant-garde looks, Bunny plays with androgynous and gender-bending styles, wearing extravagant jewelry, skirts, dresses and more.
“When you feel good with yourself and know who you are deep down, you can wear what you want to because others will know exactly who you are too, regardless of what you have on,” he said in an official statement. “I guess I’m unconsciously breaking all the rules, and not, at the same time. I don’t play by any rules, so in that sense, let those that want to be shocked to be shocked.”
Mixing his unique musical and fashion styles, the lookbook includes a romantic Bad Bunny for his Sech-assisted track “Ignorantes,” an old-school perreovibe for his track “Bichiyal,” an empowered Bad Bunny for “Yo Perreo Sola,” a rock-meets-trap look for “Hablamos Mañana,” and an emotional boy for his track “Si Veo A Tu Mama.”
The 25-year-old Puerto Rican Latin trap and reggaeton singerhas surprised fans with a new song and video called “Ignorantes” in collaboration with Sech.
While many celebrated love and friendship on Valentine’s Day, Bad Bunny offered a different take on relationships with the reggaeton track.
On “Ignorantes,” Bad Bunny is spiteful as he remembers a time when he was happy and didn’t take his relationship seriously — then, he lost everything.
That story is reflected in the music video. As demonstrated by different couples, the two artists show that regardless of race or sexual orientation, we are all capable of being ignorant — and sometimes are therefore forced to let go of the person we love.
Meanwhile, both Bad Bunny and Sech are finalists at the 2020 Billboard Latin Music Awards.
The 42-year-old Puerto Rican rapper has released his new collaboration with Sech, “Definitivamente,” via El Cartel Records.
Written by Daddy Yankee and Sech, the song speaks for all the men who want to break up with their girlfriend because they’ve noticed at the end the relationship that it’s just not worth the drama.
The mid-tempo urban track was produced by NeKxum and Ovyand mixed by Francisco Saldaña(Luny).
“I dreamed about recording with him, and I thank God for the opportunity,” says Sech in a press statement.
The official video for “Definitivamente,” directed by Marlon Peñaand filmed in Miami, combines the reality of dancing at a gas station with some high-technology and animation giving that creates a screen full of Yankees surrounded by fire and Sech singing next to a projection of himself on a TV.
“Working with Sech was very spontaneous, organic,” added Yankee.

Timed with the release of his new album, Nibiru, the 27-year-old Puerto Rican Latin rap and reggaeton singer, regarded as the New King of Reggaeton, has shared two music videos back to back.
On Thursday, Ozuna dropped “Fantasía — Cap. 1” and on Friday, he unveiled the video for the album’s title track, “Nibiru — Cap. 3.”
Nibiru’s first single, “Hasta que salga el sol,” which dropped earlier this month, is Chapter 2 in this video trilogy directed by Colin Tilley, which centers on Ozuna literally navigating the waters, land and air of fictional planet Nibiru.
While there are plenty of collaborations on Nibiruthe album (including Diddy, Anuel AA, Sech, Snoop Dogg and Nicky Jam), the new videos feature Ozuna by himself, underscoring his position as one of the few Latin stars who can carry their own weight.
Each video was released on Ozuna’s YouTube channel with an accompanying storyline and the promise of more chapters to come.
In “Fantasía,” Ozuna looks over a dystopian city in the midst of a sandstorm as his wife’s hair and face transform into stars and galaxies. In “Nibiru,” Ozuna swims in deep waters and is guided by sirens to a cave where he dances with ostensibly extraterrestrial creatures, a continuation of what he did in “Hasta que salga el sol.”
