¡Dale Play! 2019
After such a tremendous year for Latin pop and música urbana, among other Spanish-language genre styles, trying to narrow the past 12 months down to just two songs seems an almost impossible task. Yet if one wanted to sum up 2019, Daddy Yankee’s “Con Calma” and Bad Bunny’s “Callaita” would do the trick. On the former, the veteran reggaetonero reimagined Snow’s 1992 smash “Informer” and turned it into a fresh signature hit, adding yet another classic to his already robust discography. Not only did the song top Apple Music’s Latin charts, but it prompted a bilingual remix featuring none other than Katy Perry. As for “Callaita,” the Tainy-produced single marked El Conejo Malo’s proper return, not even six months after dropping his full-length debut X 100PRE. One of the most-streamed songs of the year, the nostalgic cut seized the summer and still refuses to let go.
