Juanes Hace Historia Con #MisPlanesSonAmarte

 After a very long wait, el cantautor colombiano Juanes has finally released his new visual album Mis Planes Son Amarte. Siguiendo los pasos de artistas como Beyoncé, who kicked off the visual album trend in 2016 with the Grammy Award-winning Lemonade, Juanes now brings us his own visual narrative que es una verdadera obra de arte. A collection of 12 amazing tracks, each with its own corresponding video, Mis Planes Son Amarte is the first visual album by a major Latin music artist and follows the story of a Colombian astronaut on a search for love. Directed by Latin Grammy winner Kacho López Mari, the project has been creating tremendous anticipación for months, as multiple songs were revealed prior to its release. “Hermosa Ingrata” and “El Ratico” quickly became fan favorites, while “Goodbye For Now,” una colaboración especial with renowned producer Poo Bear, has been stirring quite a buzz recently because… es la primera canción that Juanes has recorded en inglés! Amigas, ¿qué les parece? Mis Planes Son Amarte is the perfect combination of audio and visual media that highlights el genio de Juanes both as a guitarist and as a storyteller. El álbum ya está disponible en todas las plataformas digitales. Tracklist (click links to watch the videos): “Perro Viejo” “Angel” “Fuego” “Alguna Vez” feat. Fonseca “El Ratico” feat. Kali Uchis “Hermosa Ingrata” “Bendecido” “Es Tarde” “Actitud” “Mis Planes Son Amarte” “Goodbye For Now” “Esto No Acaba”   Nuestra Lynn Ponder, y the whole Web City Girls team, have always been big supporters of Juanes y Lynn notes that his humility and kindness are what make him un artista extraordinario. Nos encanta este álbum. ¿Y ustedes? ¡Cuéntennos en los comentarios abajo!...

Nicky Jam is Unstoppable!

Nicky Jam is Unstoppable!

 This past week everywhere we turned there was something happening involving Nicky Jam. From the coveted cover of Billboard to a super fun interview during Latin Billboard Music Conference where Nicky Jam and his best friend, J Balvin took over an interview with Leila Cobo during the Superstar “One on One” panel, dropping some beats during a full-house. Adorados @JBALVIN y @NickyJamPR cantan #Despacito al estilo @justinbieber con cariño y respeto 💗 #BBLatin pic.twitter.com/gzLDpkMCZv — webcitygirls (@webcitygirls) April 26, 2017 Me encanta como el Mano a Mano con @JBALVIN y @NickyJamPR hablan cantando distintas canciones para hacer su punto claro! #BBLatin pic.twitter.com/adihiB6Wzs — webcitygirls (@webcitygirls) April 26, 2017 Some insights from Nicky Jam that captured out attention: “When I want to make music, I create the beat first then I add the lyrics,” Nicky Jam “We made history. Two Latin urban singers on the cover of Billboard is incredible. I’m proud of myself, I’m proud of J Balvin, our music and of all Latinos,” Nicky Jam As part of a fun music week in Miami, Pandora hosted “Noche de Musica” a private and free pop-up concert style with performances by ChocQuibTown and Nicky Jam as part of celebrating Latin Billboard Music Awards finalists. Oh and if I did not mention this before, please know that there were other parties, private concerts and so much going on, it was hard to keep up. It is interesting how Pandora’s unique ability to determine which artists will resonate best with local listeners by analyzing musical preferences, stations created and thumbed-up songs allows them to extend invitations to listeners who have demonstrated an affinity for their identified artist. To end the week of celebration Nicky Jam was the BIG winner at Billboard Latin Music Awards taking home six awards: Hot Latin Song of the Year – “Hasta el Amanecer” Digital Song of the Year – “Hasta el Amanecer” Streaming Song of the Year – “Hasta el Amanecer” Hot Latin Song Artist of the Year Airplay Song of the Year – “Hasta el Amanecer’ Artist of the Year!!! FELICIDADES NICKY JAM!!!! Viva Puerto Rico!!!! (Photo by Jason Koerner/Getty Images for Billboard)...
