Colombian superstar Maluma released his new album F.A.M.E. on May 18. Following his breakthrough last year with "Felices Los 4," he uses his third studio record to reflect on the global fame that's followed with more reggaeton jams and heartfelt performances. F.A.M.E. already features his big hits like "Felices," "Corazón" and "El Préstamo." Here's five more songs worth checking out on Maluma's luxurious set.
With "Delincuente" (English: "Delinquent"), Maluma returns to his self-proclaimed Dirty Boy roots. This is the most straightforward reggaeton banger as he gets ready for perreo and shouts outs the genre greats before him like Daddy Yankee, Wisin & Yandel, Tego Calderón and Don Omar. Ever the smooth talker, he eschews the romance for what sounds like an unlawful but awfully good night ahead.
Latin pop star Prince Royce returns the favor for Maluma featuring on the "El Clavo" remix by teaming up with him for "Hangover," a debaucherous sequel to 2015's "Borró Cassette." The guys wake up the next day with a headache while trying to piece together the night before. "Holy sh*t, we just f**ked up it!" Maluma exclaims. Their hazy high jinks translate into a turnt-up dance track.
3. "Ojos Que No Ven"
Conversely, Maluma also dusts off his Pretty Boy side with the dreamy "Ojos Que No Ven" (English: "Out of Sight"). As always, his attractiveness and adorableness permeates his performance as he pushes for an ignorance-is-bliss kind of relationship where what might happen on the outside shouldn't affect the couple. Maluma also quotes salsa legend Héctor Lavoe, making it easier to get lost in these "Ojos."
4. "Cuenta a Saldo"
Maluma looks for his unfaithful lady to pay the piper on "Cuenta a Saldo" (English: "Even Account"). Glowing synths back him as he confronts her about an accidental phone call that's uncovered another man on the side. There's a bit of heartbreak in Maluma's performance as well as resolve in standing his ground. He strikes Latin pop paydirt with this sleek and sexy takedown.
5. "Mi Declaración"
With Latin music taking over the globe and Maluma at the forefront, he teams up with famed producer Timbaland for a collaboration that sounds like a celebration of the culture. Hip-hop beats and Spanish guitar soundtrack "Mi Declaración" (English: "My Declaration"), Maluma's dramatic and fiery goodbye to his girl that had enough second chances. Sid makes a convincing plea, but Maluma is loud and clear with this colorful kiss-off track.
