Bad Bunny- “Si Veo A Tu Mama” (Vimas)
Bad Bunny cannot be stopped. His new album YHLQDMLG has broken Billboard chart records and the single “Si Veo A Tu Mama” makes him the artist with the most entries on the Hot Latin Songs chart. The track serves as an updated version of the Bossanova song “The Girl From Ipanema” and lets BB show off his lovely singing voice. Hear the song now on Music Choice’s Pop Latino channel.
Kathleen Edwards- “Options Open” (Dualtone Music Group)
Six years ago Kathleen Edwards quit music. In that time she opened a coffee shop and was content to leave the music industry behind. For a time. Now the alt-country star is back with “Options Open” showing off her vivid lyricism and roots rock bonafide. The song is from a forthcoming album. Nice to have her back. Hear the song now on Music Choice’s Adult Alternative channel.
