EDITORS’ NOTES

Yandel touted solo album número cuatro as a return to his days slinging underground dembow anthems. #Update certainly has its share of thunderclap beats and vicious bars ("Como Antes"), but the reggaeton hitmaker remains too ambitious to go full-on retro. So instead he chases pure Latin-pop euphoria with help from a truly angelic Luis Fonsi ("Dónde Estás"), drops a surging, tropical-house banger alongside Plan B ("Si Se Da"), and pairs his tartly soulful voice with the menacing flow of Bad Bunny on a brooding trap-soul jam ("Explícale").
