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!...

Every Girl Should Have a Shoe Collection That Includes These

 If you’re a girl who cares about trends and fashion, you probably take pride in your shoe collection. But is it complete? If you ask me, there are some shoes that every girl needs to have in her collection. And if any of these items are missing from yours, the collection is not yet complete. This isn’t about collecting items for the sake of it either. Each of the types of shoe discussed below has a distinct and unique purpose that is important and practical. Comforting Boots When the winter weather starts to bite, you need shoes that are going to look great, go with anything and keep your comfortable. This is exactly what the best boots can do. You need a pair of boots that you can rely on and call upon whenever you need them. Whether they’re comfortable and fluffy Uggs or a leather pair of boots that look stylish and attention-grabbing, they need to keep you warm and comfortable. Comfort doesn’t have to mean sacrificing style either. Ballet Flats The great thing about ballet flats is that they look understated and simple while also being stylish and chic. That combination can be really useful when you want to dress down but also look great. If you don’t have a staple pair ballet flats that you come back to time and time again, then you really are missing out. They don’t have to be elaborate or expensive at all. They just need to do the job and look the part. Summer Sandals With summer just around the corner, now is the perfect time to be investing in a perfect pair of summer sandals. Sandals still have a bad reputation for some people. But if you buy the right kind, you will get plenty of use out of them. They’re vital when the weather is warm and you want to wear something light and simple on your feet. You don’t want to be weighed down by bigger footwear options. You could use Neiman Marcus coupons to find some stylish wedge sandals.  They’lll look great and remain affordable. Running Shoes Running shoes might not be at the top of your list of priorities, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not important. If you want to improve your health and stay fit, you’re going to need the right footwear. Exercising in the wrong kinds of shoes can just lead to injuries and problems that you don’t want to have to deal with. Don’t let that happen to you; invest in some great running shoes today. Slip-On Sneakers Sneakers are not just used for sports either. You can also make the...

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)...
