by Ace Damon

“First Stream Latin” is a compilation of the best Latin songs, albums and videos recommended by Billboard Latin editors. Check out this week’s picks below.

Greeicy, “Los Consejos” (Universal Music Latin)

Hidden in Colombia because of the coronavirus quarantine, Greeicy continues to create songs with sincere videos that accompany him. After “Los Besos”, released in the middle of a blockade, the Colombian pop artist presents “Los Consejos”. The romantic ballad that became pop with hints of vallenato and reggaeton is about life lessons and the importance of following the advice of your loved ones. “Mom told me to be careful, because you can lose what you neglect, and she was right,” sings Greeicy. “It hurts to love you and you are so far away / I had faith that we would grow old together.” In his melancholy lyrics, Greeicy tells the story of a person who regrets ending a relationship. “Today, more than ever, the council hurts.” In a video clip directed by Dario Burbano, we see Greeicy showing off a cream top with ruffled sleeves and a fuchsia-colored skirt as she performs the song in an outdoor setting. – JESSICA ROIZ

Georgel “Adrenalina” feat. Basic Nanpa (Sixth House / EMPIRE)

Mexican singer-songwriter Georgel offers an escape with his energetic and nervous “Adrenalina”, in collaboration with Colombian rapper Nanpa Básico. With Georgel’s soothing vocals at the forefront, the track combines rhythmic and R&B rhythms. “‘Adrenaline’ to me means that I need to reinvent myself in every song and every aspect of my existence. It is the soul and R&B that feed my passions. [This song] is an invitation to break with these stereotypes “, says Georgel, recently hired by EMPIRE (Iggy Azalea, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg). The virtual reality video meets Georgel and Nanpa Basico in a futuristic warehouse in the middle of a scientific experiment clip was recorded between Mexico, Colombia and the United States – GRISELDA FLORES

Simón Mejía, “Mirla” (orchard)

Pause and proceed to close your eyes. Allow yourself to dive deeply into the sound world of Simón Mejía, as he transforms the complexity of the haunting echoes of the Colombian jungle through the shrill voice of the mirla, a mocking bird native to the savannah of Bogotá who visited his terrace. Paired with electronics and squeezed by the captivating sweet chords of the charango by Juan José Salazar, the mirla changes the flow of air that follows from the whispered morning conversation to the night sounds in its own mysterious dialect. “Mirla” is Monte’s first single and title track, a first parallel solo project by the leader and founder of the Colombian group Bomba Stéreo, scheduled for August 21. The song, which arrives with a kaleidoscopic visual clip directed by Simon Hernández, was written by Mejía and Salazar and produced by Mejía. It was recorded in Bosques de Torca in Bogotá. – PAMELA BUSTIOS

Zion and Lennox, “All night” (Warner Music Latina)

Zion & Lennox released their latest single and video “All Night”, inspired by the blockade. With innovative mergers of Afrobeat, sensual reggaeton and 80’s pop, the Puerto Rican duo sings about meeting with that special someone after the quarantine. “I miss you / The quarantine is over / Since when haven’t we seen each other?” Zion sings on the track. A retro-inspired music video, directed by 36 Grads, raises awareness of the importance of wearing your mask and practicing social detachment in public or when meeting loved ones – watch below – JR

Richie Hell with Los Mirlos, “Amazonia” (Sweat Records Records)

Driven by the cosmic sound of the tropical jungle with the versatile vocalization of its avian singers, Argentine Richie Hell’s “Amazon” arrives like a blind folded roller coaster with all the animated textures of the psychedelic Peruvian cumbia emerging from the roots of the branches of the Amazonian tree . The DJ’s second single, the upcoming feature film by producer / musician, The Gumbo Limbo Experiment, features Peruvian legends Los Mirlos, founding members, Don Jorge Rodriguez on vocals and Danny Johnston on guitar, iconic pioneers of the 70’s chicha harmonics Psychedelic music combines well with the hallucinogenic audio-visual animated and directed by Kent Hernández, with art by visual artist Francisca Oyhanarte. – PB
