Latin tunes and hip-hop

The Miami-born rapper has become a veteran of the scene. It’s hard to believe he’s been in the mainstream since the early ‘00s, but the 37-year-old made a name for himself in the turn of the decade after the massive hit ‘Rebelution,’ including club bangers “I Know You Want Me,” “Hotel Room Service” and “Krazy.” There’s no looking back since then, delivering back-to-back albums ‘Planet Pit,’ ‘Globalization,’ ‘Climate Change’’ and ‘Dale,’ boasting hit-singles “Timber,” “Give Me Everything,” “Feel This Moment,” “Rain Over With Me” and “Don’t Stop The Party.”
