Although the cold holidays are coming up, the Latinx fire music releases haven’t slowed down. 

Who said that only the music released in summer becomes a hit? Not us!

Though it’s November, the Latinx music industry is still going strong. 

On November 17, we collectively celebrate the Latin Grammy awards, one of the Latinx music industry’s biggest music nights ever; we’ve also recently celebrated the Latinos nominated for next year’s Grammy awards. 

Latinos in the American Grammy awards? Yup — and we’re making history while at it.

Pero, what’s new in the airwaves these days? From Gen Z sierreño to emerging power pop, here are five Latinx tracks to get into.

‘Se Rumora’ — Conexión Divina

There’s a new wave of sierreño artists pushing the historically male-dominated genre forward. In this case, the Gen Z Regional Mexican female group Conexión Divina is the most recent to demonstrate the efforts. Their latest release, “Se Rumora,” was released on November 11 and is part of their latest EP, Inercia.

‘Cairo’ – Karol G

Karol G released her latest single, “CAIRO,” produced by her long-time collaborator Ovy On The Drums. The music video captures the Colombian superstar in Egypt. She wrote in an Instagram post: “Beyond being in my Top 5 places in the world that I dreamed of visiting, I had a more ambitious vision in this country: Close the Streets, the sphinx, and the pyramids of Egypt to achieve a video that was always in my mind, in my goals to accomplish and in my heart!” Well, she nailed it.

‘Tu Historia’ – Julieta Venegas

Venegas is one of the most emblematic Mexican-American singer-songwriters of all time. She just released her newest album Tu Historia, produced by the Chilean artist Álex Anwandter. “I chose the title of ‘Tu Historia’ because, for me, we must recognize our past as a part of our own,” Venegas said in a written press statement. “I believe that when you make your past part of your learning, it helps you grow. I was always a fighter of the past, but now I am more with the idea that the past has taught me and built me, so I am who I am with everything, not only my successes but also my mistakes.”

‘treetops’ – Alé Araya 

For those looking for new sounds: the emerging dream-pop Chilean and Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, and producer Alé Araya released her newest single “treetops.” “‘treetops’ is a song about perspective; it’s a reflection on my life, my experiences, from pain to love to sadness to joy,” Araya said in a written press statement. “It’s about re-framing that perspective & turning it into something beautiful because a lot of the time, sadness & loss feel forever, but it really serves as a way to grow. So this song is about choosing myself and choosing to see that light, even in the midst of the dark.”

‘Todo to Nada’ – REYNA

Since we love to highlight rising Latinx artists, here’s another group to put on your radar. REYNA is composed of the Milwaukee sisters, Vic Banuelos and Gabby Banuelos, who together form an  ‘80s-inspired electro-pop duo.“The single chronicles a once-consuming love turning into a memory near-forgotten, as the music video visually takes viewers on a long drive to clear the mind from potential to be all-consuming thoughts of a romance that has met its end,” the press release states.
