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.

Selena Gomez debuted her new single on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show yesterday and we've gotta say, it's pretty fantastic! "Who Says" is an anthem celebrating individuality and empowerment and seems like a direct shot at all of the folks who have been trying to tear Gomez down since it was revealed that she is dating Justin Bieber, though the pop star refuses to confirm exactly who the song is aimed at.

Ricky Martin has a way of enlivening others through his music and the second single “Más” off his new album “MAS (Musica + Alma + Sexo)” is a prime example. In the up-tempo song, the 39-year-old Puerto Rican singer recounts the beauty of making the most of life.
The lyrics, which speak of being true to yourself and following your destiny, may hit close to home for Martin, who's been on a whirlwind of TV, radio and awards show appearances since coming out as a gay man. We can’t wait to hear más from him!

Girls, meet your new crush: Vicente Garcia is the face of a new genre we are playfully dubbing “bacha-roots”—an exquisite fusion of tropical rhythms such as bachata, boogaloo and salsa with blues, jazz, folk, soul and pop.
The Dominican’s 10-song debut, Melodrama, now out, was recorded in Brooklyn, N.Y., and Santo Domingo with the help of producer Rafael Lazzaro.

There was some confusion on the web about the nationality of 10-year-old YouTube singing sensation Maria Aragon. While we clearly would love to claim the little girl who can out sing Lady Gaga, her YouTube bio info clearly identifies her as a Canadian Filipina. That got us thinking, do you ever assume someone is Latino based on last name alone?
Latina, Filipina, Canadian, American—either way girl can sing and her YouTube channel has some other covers you might like, including one Bruno Mars' "Just the Way You Are."
