EDITORS’ NOTES

A credited co-writer on bilingual pop smashes “I Can’t Get Enough” and “I Like It,” Jhay Cortez may not have the sort of public profile Anuel AA or J Balvin have. Yet the role this Puerto Rican artist plays in advancing música urbana behind the scenes has assuredly earned him the right to some spotlight. His second album in as many years, Famouz, captures his talents as both a dextrous reggaetonero and a viable trapero. He flows effortlessly and uninhibitedly over the rugged dembow rhythm of “No Me Conoce” alongside Bad Bunny and the booming OVO-esque “¿Cuánto E$?” with C. Tangana.
