Late last year, the popular singer Tito El Bambino released Invicto, an album that very likely will be among the most popular productions of 2013. Currently, the single "¿Por Que Les Mientes?," featuring Salsa and Latin Pop superstar Marc Anthony is at the number one spot of Billboard's Latin Songs chart.
"¿Por Que Les Mientes?" is also the number one single on the Tropical Songs chart and the second one on the Latin Pop Songs ranking. Having a privileged spot on these two charts says a lot about the single and the album. In fact, this song represents better than any other, the unique Tropical fusion that Tito El Bambino incorporated into his latest work.
This fusion, which sounds like a pleasant mix of various Caribbean styles, plays an important role in the overall appeal of an album that blends together Reggaeton, Dance music, Merengue, Salsa, Latin Pop and even Bachata. With such a strong combination of genres and rhythms, Tito El Bambino is also consolidating an eclectic style responsible for the current sound of Latin Urban music.
The time when Latin Urban music was mostly linked to Reggaeton, Rap or Hip-Hop is gone. Today's Latin Urban music is moving towards a different future, which is definitely more inclusive, experimental, tropical and even alternative. Tito El Bambino's invicto and Billboard have just confirmed the current evolution of Latin Urban music as one of the hottest trends in the Latin music industry.
