Sin Miedo (del Amor y Otros Demonios) ∞
For all the deserved buzz around this being the Colombian American talent’s first Spanish-language full-length, the frequently bilingual Sin Miedo builds on that by being eclectic and cohesive at the same time. Through songs like “telepatía” and the Bond-worthy groover “vaya con dios,” the record exists as more than just the successor to Kali Uchis’ robust and exploratory Isolation, building on and one-upping that formidable 2018 effort left and right. She reveals her strengths in more than one language on “fue mejor” with R&B misfit PARTYNEXTDOOR, and executes boss moves alongside Rico Nasty on “¡aquí yo mando!” Throughout the album, but particularly on its back half, super-producer Tainy helps to further bring out the singer’s undeniable greatness, sometimes with the added support of other Latin music notables. The irresistible perreo cut “te pongo mal (préndelo)” links her with reggaetón vets Jowell & Randy, while “la luz (Fin)” introduces hitmaker Jhay Cortez into the already potent mix.
