This week, René Pérez from Calle 13 won your hearts! The 33-year-old Boricua front man of the urban music duo beat out his compatriot, actor John Ortiz, and part-Salvadorian J.R. Martinez (champion of Dancing With the Stars) for the title with over 60 percent of the vote!
Have you noticed how much we love René Pérez? The tattooed (and incredibly sexy) Boricua rapper is never afraid to express how he truly feels about controversial-laden issues such as immigration and the education crises happening throughout Latin America – which we both admire and appreciate. Pérez’s socially conscious lyrics have made our heads sway for years, especially with Calle 13’s latest hit, “Latinoamérica” – a beautiful ode to Latin America. At this year’s Latin Grammy Awards, Pérez and his stepbrother Eduardo Cabra dominated the night, taking home close to 10 awards for their music. Now tell us – who doesn’t like a winner?
