“Music to My Ears” is a series of recurring posts showcasing the music of artists from around the world.
About the Artist:
The only thing I can really say about this guy is that he kind of came out of nowhere, all of a sudden was everywhere, and then it just stayed that way.
No joke, there was a period (sometime in 2012 I believe) when it seemed like every week, a new song of his was getting played to death on the radio. And if it wasn’t one of his songs, it was a song he was featured on.
Like I said, dude was everywhere.
He’s a reggaeton artist from Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico, and he’s definitely on the reggaeton “romantico” side of things. Most of his songs are about love, lust, and/or sex.
About the Song:
This song was released early last year, and talks of a love that was never meant to be.
It seems like the woman is in a relationship, so we’ve got the whole “we know what we’re doing is wrong, but we cant help ourselves” thing going on.
“Dejamos todo claro,
We made everything clear
no íbamos a enamorarnos,
We weren’t going to fall in love
no no no no,
We distanced ourselves from each other
We missed each other
nos encontramos y ahora todo cambio.
We got together, and now everything has changed“
Why I Chose It:
Even though I’m not as big on this genre as I was when I was younger, reggaeton will always have a place in my heart.
For that reason, for years, I’ve taken it as my moral duty to expose people to reggaeton artists that aren’t Daddy Yankee or Don Omar.
