With the release of Daddy Yankee’s new single “Ven Conmigo,” featuring Prince Royce, the king of reggaeton is officially back, reminding us why we love him.
DY has been hard at work in the studio, and we have an exclusive behind-the-scenes look!
“You’ll see a new Daddy Yankee collaborating with different people,” teases Yankee, who’s busy putting the finishing touches on his next album, Prestige, due this summer. “The new single with Prince Royce—it’s a summer anthem. I can guarantee you that.”

Oh, J.Lo, we have no idea how you do it, but you manage to pull off every single look you try no matter how over the top it may seem for us mere mortals. Full on blue eye shadow? Check. Scandalous scarf dress? Check. It seems you just can't go wrong!
So, we weren't that surprised to see La Lopez rocking the super trendy turban headband to the fullest in Chichen Itza on the set of the video for her latest collaboration with Lil' Wayne, "I'm Into You."
She looked great, but we're still on the fence about this hair accessory. Tell us:

Warmer weather is coming, and as we put together our summer playlist we’re 120 percent sure Spanish indie pop quintet Polock will be on it. Their debut single “Fireworks” is the kind of up-tempo ditty that defines backyard bbq's and long drives with the top down while rocking neon Wayfarers en route to La Costa del Sol. The synth-laden hooks take us back to the 80s—possibly our favorite musical era ever— and remind us a whole lot of France’s Phoenix.

It’s hard keeping track of all these reggaeton duos, isn’t it? But some definitely stand out from the pack, like Alexis & Fido (born Raúl Alexis Ortíz and Joel Martínez in Cayey, Puerto Rico). In the six years they’ve been in the game, they’ve given us some memorable party anthems (remember the ubiquitous “Eso Ehh”?).

Los Amigos Invisibles’ primary songwriter and guitarist, Jose Luis Pardo (aka DJ Afro), is making his solo debut this week with Free (Nacional), an eclectic album that coasts a wide musical landscape. So what can we expect from the man responsible for many of the hits that made the Venezuelan party band a sensation over the last 20 years? The answer is anything, as the record’s title implies. We caught up with Pardo ahead of the release and here’s what he had to say:

When your debut album gets pushed back a few times, it’s time to start worrying. Fortunately, Gustavo Galindo, whom we last caught up with in September 2010, has the backing of his tocayo, Oscar and Grammy-winning producer Gustavo Santaolalla. He can now breathe a sigh of relief because his baby, titled Entre La Ciudad y El Mar (Surco/Universal) is finally out this week! The talented Mexican American singer-songwriter talked to us about how it feels to see his hard work finally pay off.
