Music Roundup: Jennifer Lopez, Don Omar and more!

It’s time to fire up our iPods! We found a few tasty musical treats over the weekend from some of our favorite artists, and we could barely wait until Monday to share.
You ask and Jennifer Lopez delivers. The diva hit us with “Papi” this weekend after enough people "liked" the sneak peak on Facebook. It's the latest single off her highly-anticipated upcoming album LOVE? This jam is classic J.Lo—dance-worthy, beat driven and with a Latin kick. Between “Papi” and her first single “On the Floor” (which just hit 100 million views on YouTube!), we predict a major, multi-platinum comeback for Jennifer when her new album drops.
Grammy-winning Orishas frontman Yotuel Romero teamed up with Tego Calderon for “Rock and Roll con Chancleta,” his first single as a solo artist. The track merges hip-hop with Yotuel’s conga roots for a sound so infectious that if you don’t find yourself immediately and involuntarily bouncing to it, you might want to check your pulse.
Mana’s just-released album Drama y Luz was given a major boost by the success of their first single “Lluvia al Corazon,” which debuted at the number one spot on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart. And now…there’s a video! The drama-filled clip features an interpretive dance set to lead singer Fher Olvero’s passionate vocals.
And finally, we have Don Omar, king of Youtube! He has a new song out called "Taboo," just in time for the release of his new action adventure film Fast Five, the latest in the Fast & the Furious franchise. Not surprisingly (the film is set in Rio de Janeiro), Omar's new single samples the Kaoma's famed "Lambada."
