The 2014 Latin Grammy Awards always feels like a musical celebration of our cultura. Genres like bachata, tropical, urban and ranchera finally get the love they deserve--which makes us love the event even more. For the 15th annual Latin Grammys, the tongue-twisting duo Calle 13 stole the show with an amazing ten nominations. Their outspokeness seems to have paid off since they are one of the most recognized artists with a record number of 19 total nominations. Now, that is pretty impressive.
While some of the female artists like Mariana Vega, Ana Tijoux and Linda Briceno were also nominated, only male artists landed in the "most nominated" categories for the 2014 Latin Grammy Awards. What's up with that?
After a year of musical hits and misses, the 2014 Latin Grammy Award nominations have finally been announced! The 15th annual edition will air live from Las Vegas on November 20th. Calle 13 is proving that they are still one of the most loved duos on the planet with a total of ten nominations thanks to their politically-charged concept album, MultiViral. The Puerto Rican pair is definitely making history since they already have 19 Latin Grammy Awards to brag about.
Naya Rivera's ex-fiance Big Sean wrote a diss song about her, it's pretty much the worst thing I've ever heard in my life! The track, lovingly titled "I Don't F*** With You," was reportedly written while the rapper was still with an unidentified ex, who is totally Naya.
On the track, he whines all about how he's moved on from his ex and is no longer interested in anything she does or says. Only, the fact that he's written a song about her kinda, sorta contradicts his message.
Chiquis Marin fans get ready! Jenni Rivera's eldest daughter is switching things up and singing in English. Chiquis is set to drop her first English single, "I'm Not That Girl," on September 16th. Her last two tracks, "Esa No Soy Yo" and "Paloma Blanca" have paid homage to the genre her legendary mother was known for, but Chiquis is preparing her pop crossover with a hybrid sound that includes elements of banda music. She gave fans a preview of the track and we have all of the details.
We all know 2014 has been properly dubbed "the year of the butt," but Jennifer Lopez is proving that her famous assets are timeless--and better than everybody else's. The Boricua diva really lets it all hang out for the "Booty" remix teaser clip featuring Iggy Azalea. If you thought the album cover was steamy then just wait until you see La Lopez in action here.
Thalia is officially celebrating the video premiere of her new single with Laura Pausini, "Sino a Ti." There is no denying that the Mexican pop star has become the queen of collaborations lately. From Michael Bublé to Prince Royce, her latest album Habítame Siempre is all about joining forces with the best of the best. Now Thalia is paying it forward for the Italian singer's new hits album, Laura Pausini 20 Grandes Éxitos. The new track shines with positivity and touches on the pure amor women radiate. Of course, I'm really digging this theme.
Its official, 2014 has become the year of the butt and Sunday's 2014 MTV Video Music Awards definitely confirmed it. From Nick Minaj's big-booty performance, Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off," and Beyonce's butt-bouncing dance moves, it's obvious that pompis is what's on everyone's minds. Don't even get me started on Miley Cyrus and Kim Kardashian! But if you still need more proof, wait until you see the cover for Jennifer Lopez's new "Booty" remix featuring rapper Iggy Azalea. It's got booty for days!
Nicki Minaj is giving a whole new meaning to the 90's term "jungle fever." The Queens rapper is properly depicted as the Queen of the jungle in her "Anaconda" video, which makes Jennifer Lopez's tropical-themed "Waiting For Tonight" video look tame as hell. Director Colin Tilley starts us off with a peaceful prelude of birds chirping in a rainforest before smacking you in the face with slow motion booty poppin' and bananas spinning on turntables. No, I'm not making this stuff up.
Every summer I create a playlist that includes the best Latin and American hits that my familia and friends--a blend of Latinos and Gringos--can enjoy while barbequing, hanging at the beach or at our house. Before recommending them to my friends I make sure that the Latin songs are popular with my gringo audience--in other words that they've been gringo approved and tested.
You can't really say that Nicki Minaj is conservative when it comes to her fashion choices. Wait until you see the super sexy photo she posted to her Instagram this week, in efforts to promote her new single, "Anaconda." Don't get me wrong, Nicki has NEVER been afraid of showing skin before. However, this butt-baring photo has got to be one of her most revealing yet! Check it out for yourself!Continue Reading >
