Nicky Jam, Maluma, Piso 21, French Montana, Becky G and Shakira added their talent to that of Black Eyed Peas, in their new album Translation.
The expansion of the urban Latin genre has already decisively reached the Anglo-Saxon market, in which collaborations and duets between renowned American stars and Spanish-American singers have already become routine.
The new album by the trio Black Eyed Peas is perhaps the clearest demonstration of the influence that urban Latino singers have achieved, who now even crossover to the Anglo market singing their lyrics mostly in Spanish.
The new Black Eyed Peas album, Translation, gives a clear idea even in the name of its content, since it is a production loaded to the top of the Latin rhythm.
The American trio has released part of its content, with the songs Rhytm with J Balvin, Mamacita, in which Ozuna and J Rey Soul participate, as well as the most recent No Tomorrow with El Alfa.
Nicky Jam, Maluma, Piso 21, French Montana, Becky G and Shakira complete the list of collaborators who added their talent to that of Black Eyed Peas, to make Translation the most forceful expression of this change in the Latin urban genre.
One of the founding members of Black Eyed Peas, Will.I.Am, recently stated on his social networks: "New album, new sound frequency, new era".
Will.I.Am himself added: "We are on a journey to translate and spread innovative rhythms across the world, and we are bringing our family on the journey."
Black Eyed Peas, founded in 1995 and winner of six Grammy Awards, has always been characterized by showing a great openness to the fusion of rhythms, which has perhaps been its formula to continue in force and not miss the departure of several of its members, in special to Fergie.
