In the world of English-language music, chances are that “new Oasis” means something very different to you than it does to the Spanish-language Internet. When the possibility of a joint album between two of the biggest names in urbano, J Balvin, the Colombian global domineer of 2017’s “Mi Gente” and longtime reggaetonero, and Bad Bunny, the 25-year-old face of Puerto Rican trap, became a reality back in September, it was a big deal.
Balvin confirmed to radio host Ebro Darden, who casually suggested a potential joint album, that he’d title the whole of their six or seven unreleased songs together Oasis — a word written the same in English and Spanish. Before long, Balvin and Bad Bunny were name-dropping Oasis on the outro to Jhay Cortez’s “No Me Conoce” remix. Cryptic Twitter teases ensued for months, until Oasis finally dropped today.Continue Reading

It’s certainly not the first time long-established Boricua musician Ani Cordero targets government malfeasance with pointed lyricism, but her latest single, “Pan Pan (Sin Mantequilla),” takes an especially clever – and catchy – route to the protest song bull’s-eye.
Fusing beats by French-Chilean producer Pablo San Martin with backing sax, congas, keys, and vocals from Puerto Rican act Émina, “Pan Pan (Sin Mantequilla)” melds Afro-Caribbean rhythms with electronic elements, all the while punctuating that backdrop with the repeated back-and-forth of a helium-high “sin mantequilla! sin mantequilla!” coupled with the lower-octave “pan pan.”Continue Reading
