Prince Royce & More: Which Is Your Favorite New Latin Music Release? Vote!

This week, our New Music Latin roundup — a compilation of the best new Latin songs, albums and videos recommended by Billboard Latin and Billboard Español editors — is powered by new music from Luis Fonsi, Prince Royce and Eladio Carrión, who dropped an ultra-personal album. 

Carrión’s sixth studio album, Sol María, is a heartfelt ode to his mother of the same name, but also to his family values and making his parents proud. The 17-track set includes collaborations with Yandel, Rauw Alejandro, Arcangel, Milo J and many more, and navigates a range of genres from Afrobeats to Jersey Club, all while keeping his trap and reggaeton essence intact. 

As he prepares to release his forthcoming studio album in February, Prince Royce surprised fans with the track “Cosas de la Peda” in collaboration with Mexican newcomer Gabito Ballesteros. The heartbreak song, which fuses bachata with música mexicana, is backed by melancholic lyrics about drowning your sorrows in alcohol after a bad breakup. 

Meanwhile, Luis Fonsi presents “Santiago,” the third preview of his next album El Viaje, which is inspired by Latin American cities. Co-written by Fonsi, Mauricio Rengifo, Andrés Torres and Keityn, “‘Santiago’ talks about when in a relationship you feel an obvious disconnection — when they live at opposite poles, but do not dare to accept reality,” he explained in a press statement. 

Other new releases include Ana Tijoux’s “Millonaria,” marking her comeback after a 10-year hiatus, Kenia Os’ “Bobo,” and Lunay, Rusherking and Boza’s “Hora y Lugar,” produced by Revol. 

Last week, Omar Courtz’s “Una Noti” won the reader poll with more than 29 percent of the votes, closely followed by DannyLux’s “Un Día Entenderás.”
