EDITORS’ NOTES

With a natural versatility not unlike that of fellow Colombian artist Shakira, Karol G’s opulent second album luxuriates in its genre exploits. While reggaetón and trap play their part here—as on “Sin Corazón” and the vivid dembow-laden pop of “Bebesita”—she branches out on more surprising moments like the rootsy groover “Love with a Quality” with Damian Marley. In stark contrast with “Culpables,” her previous duet with Anuel AA, their “Dices Que Te Vas” showcases more of the pair’s shared range with its moving balladry. Later, an extremely faithful cover of Danay Suárez’s “Yo Aprendí” brings the Cuban vocalist herself right to her side as yet another display of humility and humanity.
