Puerto Rican superstar Luis Fonsi released his highly-anticipated album, Vida, on Feb. 1. The title, which translates to "life" in English, features his record-breaking No. 1 hit, "Despacito," with Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber. The barrier-breaking song put Latin music back in a global spotlight. That single came out back in early 2017 so it's been a few years of Fonsi gathering new material to complete Vida since then. He's more than "Despacito" and this new, 15-track album shows that there's still a lot of life left in his music. Here are five great other songs to check out on Luis' tenth studio effort.
"Calypso" was released last summer as the third single from Fonsi's Vida album. On the colorful club banger, he basks in the beach and in his status as one of music's global ambassadors. He counts down to the party in Spanish, French and English. U.K. rapper Stefflon Don brings the island vibes on the original version while Colombian reggaetonera Karol G replaces her with more Latinidad on the remix.
4. "Échame La Culpa"
Pop princess Demi Lovato joins Fonsi on the Vida's second single, "Échame La Culpa" (Put the Blame on Me). Lovato embraces her Mexican roots singing with Fonsi in both English and Spanish. Backed by Caribbean beats, the two playfully trade verses about taking the blame for the mistakes in their relationship. The trop-pop bop is quite a celebratory cease fire.
3. "Apaga La Luz"
Fonsi goes it alone on "Apaga La Luz (Turn off the Light). On the fan-favorite that was performed on his recent Love + Dance Tour, Luis' Latin pop flavor is blended once again with a reggaeton music edge. He finds himself drawn to an inviting woman in the club on this hot-and-heavy banger. Fonsi turns it on and turns it up with the absolutely lit "Luz."
On "Imposible" (Impossible), Fonsi fully immerses himself in reggaeton music with another one of the genre's top artists right now, fellow Puerto Rican singer Ozuna. A plucky production and hard-hitting beats back the guys as they shoot their shot to a woman who deserves better. It's impossible not to fall in love with this moving, heartfelt anthem.
1. "Tanto Para Nada"
Before breaking out with "Despacito," Fonsi was most known for his ballads and one that he knocks out of the park is "Tanto Para Nada" (So Much for Nothing). Atop trap-lite beats and swirling synths, Luis' voice soars as he lets his suspicious lover know that the jig is up. Fonsi pieces things together and the heartbreak is palpable in his powerful performance. He turns "Nada" into a whole lot of something.
