New FIFA is just around the corner, and with it comes another premier soundtrack to get hooked on whilst playing one invigorating match after another.

Major Lazer has teamed up with J Balvin and El Alfa for their newest single, “Que Calor.” Major Lazer has collaborated previously with both featured artists, and the track takes inspiration from each of their home countries. It samples Toto La Momposina’s traditional Colombian-cumbia classic “Curara” and Dominican dembow rhythms. The release is ultimately a feel-good song and the perfect trigger to get the listener dancing. To accompany the single’s release, the artists have also released an energetic music video.
The video starts with J Balvin surrounded by enthusiastic dancers. The setting is muted and dark, but the video then jumps to an ornate and brighter setting. Diplo rises out of fire to join J Balvin and El Alfa on a platform surrounded by flames and dancers, creating a dynamic visual accompaniment to the dance-worthy single.
Earlier this summer, J Balvin and Bad Bunny, quite possibly the two biggest stars in all of Spanish-language pop right now, teamed up for the surprise album OASIS, a monster-level collaboration that basically serves as an urbano version of Watch The Throne. When they dropped the album, they also shared a video for … More »
