First Stream Latin: New Music by Justin Quiles, Gloria Estefan & More
"First Stream Latin" is a compilation of the best new Latin songs, albums, and videos recommended by the Billboard Latin editors. Check out this week's picks below.
Justin Quiles, “Jeans” (Warner Music Latina)
After fusing dembow and reggaeton on his addictive “Pam” collaboration with Daddy Yankee and El Alfa, Justin Quiles dropped a fresh new track called “Jeans.” Named after clothing apparel, the song, produced by Dimelo Flow and written by Quiles, is about a woman who is the center of attention when she wears her pair of jeans. In the lyrics, Quiles confesses he’s crushing on her and wants her just for him. The colorful music video shows Quiles hanging out with a group of girls on the porch of a house and even in outer space, implying that she’s “out of this world” when she rocks her jeans. Check out the music video below. --- JESSICA ROIZ
Banda Ms, El Trabajo Es La Suerte (Lizos Music)
Two years after their album Con Todas Las Fuerzas, Banda MS returns with an 18-track set titled El Trabajo Es La Suerte today. Staying true to their ranchera-tinged ballads and their showstopper banda sound from Sinaloa, Banda MS recruited songwriters like Eden Muñoz, Espinoza Paz, Omar Tarazon, Joss Favela and Jhonny Zazueta to pen songs for the well-rounded album. The set opens with “El Trabajo Es La Suerte,” penned by Jhonny Zazueta, an upbeat track about hard work and sacrifice. “I love it because it talks about how things are earned with hard work and sacrifice. The title says it all: To work is to have good luck,” Banda MS’ Oswaldo Silvas told Billboard. In the songs that follow, Banda MS taps into ballads of heartbreak with songs like “No Me Interesa,” “Lo Haces Difícil'' and “Antecedentes.” You’ll want to hear from beginning to end and from the 18 songs, pick your quarantine anthem. --- GRISELDA FLORES
Cali y El Dandee, Danna Paola, “Nada” (Universal Music Group)
Cali y El Dandee and Danna Paola join forces for “Nada,” giving a Latin twist to a 1960’s classic. Marking their first collaborative effort, “Nada” narrates the story of a former couple who’s coming to terms with why the relationship ended. “If I gave you everything and you gave me nothing / Why do you appear out of nowhere / Pretending as if nothing happened,” the lyrics kick-off. The infectious reggaeton-pop song samples part of Bobby Vinton's 1962 song "Mr. Lonely.” Listen to it below. --- J.R.
