Released in mid-July, “Brindemos” currently sits at No. 19 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart and has amassed over six million streams on Spotify. It is the lead single from Anuel’s latest album, Real Hasta La Muerte, which is currently in its second week at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart.
Anuel AA is widely considered as one of the leading figures of the rising Latin trap movement. He released his album by surprise on July 17, hours before he was released from prison where he had spent 30 months on gun possession charges. In his first interview since being out, Anuel told Billboard that the majority of the album was recorded during his time behind bars.

Tory Lanez and Ozuna have shared the video for their dancehall and reggaeton single, “Pa Mi.” The track, which peaked at No. 1 on DJcity’s Hot Box chart, became the second most-downloaded song of June.
In the visual, Lanez and Ozuna perform in front of a Puerto Rican flag and expensive cars. The video also features scenes with beautiful Latin women dancing.
“Pa Mi” serves as the lead single from Lanez’s forthcoming Spanish-language album, El Agua. Meanwhile, Ozuna jumped on the remix of Nicky Jam and J Balvin‘s smash hit “X” last Friday alongside Maluma.

Latin music’s popularity is at an all-time high thanks in part to artists like Bad Bunny, Maluma, and Pitbull. They, along with other Latin stars, have topped charts and sold out shows in record numbers all over the world over the past year.
Now, they’ve all gathered together in Las Vegas for the 29th annual Billboard Latin Music Week. The event, which ends Thursday night with the 2018 Billboard Latin Music Awards, began Monday with a three-day conference.
Among the festivities at the conference was a series of individual Q&A and panel interviews with the top artists, producers, and executives in the game. Topics included a look back at the past year, how collaborations came together, and future projects.
We put together some of the best Q&As below, most of which were conducted in Spanish. The list includes interviews by the aforementioned Bad Bunny, Maluma, and Pitbull as well as Ozuna, Maná, and songwriter Descemer Bueno.
Watch them below.

Looking to extend the life of his smash “rockstar,” Post Malone has dropped a remix featuring two of Latin music’s biggest artists: Nicky Jam and Ozuna. The track features Nicky and Ozuna rapping in Spanish while the original hook, sung by Post in English, is maintained.

As part of their A Brief History Of series, Billboard spoke with some of the biggest names in Latin trap music to discuss the history of the genre.
Puerto Rican rapper De La Ghetto agrees, saying in the video that Bunny is “the most important trap artist right now.” Bunny was recently featured on the remix of Major Lazer‘s hit single “Know No Better.” On Friday, rising New York rapper Cardi B enlisted Messiah for a remix of her breakout hit “Bodak Yellow.”
“[Trap is] the closest expression to the streets and to the way the new generation is living,” Farruko says in the clip.
“What people were doing was a small imitation of what American artists were doing,” Bad Bunny says. “They took American hits and turned them into their songs.”
