Karol G is purring with new music…

The 31-year-old Colombian singer, songwriter and businesswoman, now sporting bright red hair, has released the new single “Gatúbela,” in collaboration with one of Latin urban’s pioneers, Maldy.

In the lyrics, Karol G is fiery and unapologetic, chanting: “I’m not with anyone but I’m hooked/ I’m elevated, I feel like a Catwoman/ It feels good when he moves my panty to the side/ It feels good when you kiss me down there.”

But before she’s caught in action running away in the dark, she’s feeling ultra sensual in a locker room full of equally sweaty people that she gets cheeky with.

“Gatúbela” comes four months after Karol G released her first single of the year, “Provenza,” and became the first woman to replace herself at No. 1 on the Hot Latin Songs chart (dated May 14).

Las Villa

Las Villa, comprised of twins Laura and Lucia, present their new single composed by themselves alongside Vibarco, La Pardo, and Casta (who also produced the track).

“La Carta” fuses traditional bachata rhythms with edgy urbano beats, and tells the story of a letter where an ex-partner claims they have changed, but Las Villa believes not for the best. “Now I see you using Balenciaga when a year ago you didn’t care about that/ You’re not happy and soon you’ll realize that your movie will end,” the chorus goes.

“We came to the studio with the idea that we wanted to do a bachata,” the duo expressed in a statement. “It was clear to us that day that we wanted to do something different. The song ends up being about someone who changed from heaven to earth, overnight, and who you used to know and had a very strong bond with, and suddenly that person changes. Their tastes have changed, you don’t recognize them anymore, they now like fine and expensive things, and have completely turned their back on you and on all their values, changing all the fundamentals of life for superficial things.”

In the colorful music video, directed by Sergio de Avila and Jerome Lehoucq, the two sisters are shopping at a local clothing store and gossiping around the streets of Colombia.

The chorus later announces, “This Winnie Pooh has no honey left.”

Each artist adds a unique flow to the lyrics. Boza, for example, states how he’s “Gucci” and his ex-girlfriend left him for “Old Navy.” “I’m not with you and it feels great/ Even Cristiano [Rolando] loses the ball,” chants Wheeler over a chill reggae beat.

“Winnie Pooh” follows Dimelo Flow’s star-studded collaboration “Suelta” featuring Rauw Alejandro, Farruko, Maria Becerra, Mr. Vegas, and Fatman Scoop.

Mariah does not hesitate to describe it as a “lit” collaboration overall.

“This song is going to make a big impact in the industry because we’re three girls,” she affirms.

“Honestly, I have loved this song since I was little,” she says. “I love R&B, and I think that’s one of the reasons that when Chino presented the idea to me I said, ‘Hell yeah!’ because I have that music in my soul.”

 

Mariah became a household name with her saucy 2019 single “Perreito.” In only two years, she captured the attention of her colleagues, landing major collaborations with Arcangel and Anuel AA, to name a few.

“This song has a lot of elements that identify me and that’s why I believe Karol wanted to do the song with me,” she recalls. “I was sharing my story when we were writing the song and I mentioned that I ran away at 16 to chase my dreams, so for sure, that’s why the song makes reference to that. Karol’s the same. She’s a fighter and she’s been working hard for her dreams since she was young. That’s why we connected on this song.”

“El Makinon,” slang for a big machine, also earned Mariah her first No. 1 on any Billboard chart when it topped the Latin Airplay chart dated June 5, becoming only the third female pairing to rule since the chart’s inception in 1994.

“Everything happened so quickly,” Mariah recalls. “I’m super happy because what’s better than to collaborate with one of the most important women in the industry? I took this as a blessing.”

Up next, Mariah is reportedly working on a full-length album and has 40 to 50 dates confirmed for an upcoming tour that will soon be announced.
