Luis Fonsi Releases New Album “Ley De Gravedad”

It’s a grave new world for Luis Fonsi.

The 43-year-old Puerto Rican singer has released Ley De Gravedad, his latest album from Universal Music Latino.

Luis FonsiAlways the romantic, Fonsi taps into his core as a singer/songwriter who writes tracks armed first and foremost with his guitar, in this collection of songs about love won and lost and reclaimed.

There are several danceable songs on the album, like the airy “Vacaciones” alongside Manuel Turizo and “Bésame,” which highlights a lighter side of Myke Towers.

And Fonsi definitely has developed a penchant for cross-genre collaborations.

On Ley De Gravedad he joins forces with a veritable who’s who of the urban world, including Rauw Alejandro, Nicky Jam, and Dalex.

But the heart of the album is the soulful ballads, like “Iglú” and the final “Girasoles,” where Fonsi sings simply accompanied by just his guitar in a hopeful reflection of the power of love and life.

Dalex Releases Saucy New Single “Pa’nama”

Dalex is back with new music…

The 30-year-old Puerto Rican urbano singer has released the new single “Pa’nama,” a saucy track with a clever play on words.

Dalex

If his debut album Climaxxx was any indication, Dalex continues along the lines of the sultry lyrics and edgy reggaeton fusions that characterize him.

Produced by Cromo La X, Rike Music, Ecby, and La Cone, the track tells the back-and-forth story of someone who’s playing hard to get and the other person who’s after them.

“Pa’nama,” according to Dalex, “is all about the vibes, and it’s such a fun, sexy, and cheeky song that I hope makes people let loose and enjoy the moment,” he said in a statement.
