Our Puerto Rican Day Parade Playlist 2016

 @webcitygirls dijo PRESENTE en NYC’s Puerto Rican Day Parade and to keep the celebration going there’s no better way than with a playlist of songs from our favorite artists with Puerto Rican roots. “Vivir Mi Vida”-Marc Anthony Get the party going with one of Marc Anthony’s biggest éxitos! “Vivir Mi Vida” quickly became an anthem, and it’ll have you dancing all day and all night.   “Somos Uno”-Yandel Yandel brings us lots of positivity with “Somos Uno.” Produced by Nesty La Mente Maestra, producer of hits such as Wisin & Yandel’s “Estoy Enamorado” and Alexis y Fido’s “Santa de Mi Devoción,” it’s a can’t-miss track from Yandel’s second solo album, Dangerous.   “Adrenalina”-Wisin, Ricky Martin, & J. Lo Sube la adrenalina! Reggaetonero Wisin teamed up with two of the biggest stars in Latin pop to form a dynamic collaboration, creating an impressive hit that will withstand the test of time.   “Que Suenen Los Tambores”-Victor Manuelle Esta canción hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Tropical Airplay chart last year. Forget about your troubles and lose yourself in the music porque los tambores están sonando!   “Rompe La Cintura”-Alexis y Fido Alexis y Fido + MadMusick = magic, no?   “Lovumba”-Daddy Yankee “Lovumba” was one of the many hits that came from the mega album Prestige. It’s an energetic track perfect for dancing, whether in the club or at the gym.   “Soy Libre”-Ivy Queen ft. Jowell & Randy Ivy Queen was one of the first to give women a voice in the male-dominated realm of reggaeton, and we’re so glad she did! La reina brings it hard with “Soy Libre,” an empowering song with an addicting beat.   If you were in NYC at the PR Parade please let us know “como la pasaron”!!!    ...

Happy New Year Thoughts!

Happy New Year Thoughts!

 Last day of 2015 and I am feeling very grateful to be in Puerto Rico. I grew up on this island and my roots are truly embedded in this island, although I have lived in the United States for a very long time. The difference of being here to celebrate the most joyful season of the year, is that I truly feel loved, appreciated and accepted simply for who I am. Nothing else is more important to the people I love here than our unique caring bond created while growing up in this beautiful island. I am thankful for this past year of learnings and new opportunities in this amazing journey that we call our life. Looking forward to conquer 2016 with good health, lots of passion in everything I set out to accomplish!!! Thank you all for your love and support, I value each post, comment and tweet dearly. Wishing you all a Happy New Year and may all your dreams come through with determination and hard work. Abrazos de corazón!!!  ...
