“It’s something that is inside you already when you’re alive,” Manuel Turizo tells Apple Music about the innate inspiration behind his single “El Merengue”. A clever counterpart to last year’s runaway hit “La Bachata” and a standout moment on his new album 2000, the Marshmello collaboration captures the Colombian singer’s musical roots, paying due homage to the merengue-meets-electronica hybrids of the past while giving the tropical sound a modern update. “If you have Marshmello on the song, it’s not going to be a classic merengue—not traditional,” he says. “I was trying to make something different, to put another sauce in it.” This playlist is updated often, so if you hear something you like, add it to your library.
