Nick Rivera Caminero, better known in the Reggaeton world as Nicky Jam, is what I like to like an underrated talent. His authentic voice is sexy yet hard hitting when needed on those edgy bars, and what’s more, his voice is never mistaken for another as it comes through the speakers of your radio. The half Boricua half Dominican singer has been in the game for a while making hits with industry bigs like Daddy Yankee, Hector El Father, Big Boy, and Rakim y Ken-Y. All-time favorites like “Yo No Soy Tu Marido” and “Chambonea” represent old-school Reggaeton at its purest form, the type that makes you feel the undeniable sensuality of the Urban branch of Latin music.
Currently residing in Medellin, Colombia Nicky Jam continues to work hard at his calling and always maintains genuine references to the streets he finds inspiration in. Whether it’s the beautiful women that walk those streets, or the struggle that lives within them the MC always delivers music that pays homage. It’s simple, don’t be mislead by his subtle presence in the lime light, just show support to the talent regardless of the amount of spotlights shone on them. Let me say this, Nicky Jam Reggaeton, like the one us true die hards learned to sweat it out to, is not for everybody, but if you appreciate the genre and solid talent, you’ll get it.
J.Cole is one of my all-time favorite Urban artists not only because he has an obvious
amount of talent but because of his simplicity. Born Sinner, his talent musical work, is nothing less
than passionate and true to what J.Cole feels in the present moment. What’s my go-to track in this album?
“Crooked Smile” YES! he speaks of his own “displaced” smile and does it in such a way that he makes it endearing and seducing.
“Representando con orgullo la Mujer Latina; La transicion ha comenzado”
It is evident that the Cuban rapper is devoted to one thing; representing Latinas worldwide with class and style. P La Cangri, one of the leading ladies in the Latin Urban movement, is transitioning from the booth into the voice of Bacardi’s latest commercial. The Hip Hop stunner narrates what seems to be a monumental moment in Cuba’s revolution and the highlight of the action-filled commercial; a minute that speaks louder than imagined.
“My accent on the day-to-day is Carolina calle Puerto Rico, so I had my mom read the script to me and I recorded it and listened to it 100 times then imagined my grandmother reading it.” Says the MC.
Having been born in Cuba, raised in Carolina, Puerto Rico, and now residing in New Jersey P La Cangri has learned from the various environments that have shaped her, and she certainly uses this to her advantage. A tweet, a “Hello”, or a quick shout out is never too tedious for the Urban talent as she acknowledges her supporters and embraces the love and admiration they express; a trait that is sure to keep her on the rise. Her charismatic persona and her artistic versatility have led her to be the only woman in the luxury cigar brand Davidoff of Geneva commercial which portrays male dominance. The Davidoff name has grown into a global commodity with over 60 Davidoff flagship stores worldwide, and P La Cangri happens to be the only female spokesperson along for the ride.
So, if you’re feeling like being a Latina is a disadvantage in today’s competitive thrive or if you simply need some inspiration then I suggest you search up P La Cangri. Be your own judge of what a strong, dedicated, and passionate Latina can do, and yes, in America.
