âToda La Nocheâ with Rauw Alejandro
For âToda La Noche,â GÃ¡rgolas teamed up with rising Puerto Rican pop star Rauw Alejandro. He understands Alejandro’s style as a singer and dancer and gives him both reggaeton and pop sound. When GÃ¡rgolas abandons the 80s inspired rhythms, Rauw’s voice is still just as enchanting. This gem of the genre is the future of reggaeton.
“Las GÃ¡rgolas” with Mora, ArcÃ¡ngel, Luar La L, Darell & Brray
GÃ¡rgolas mixes old school reggaeton with the new school of “Las GÃ¡rgolas”. He pairs veteran ArcÃ¡ngel with rising stars like Mora, Luar La L, Darell and Brray. The song revisits the classic perreo rhythms of reggaeton’s first breakthrough with the electronic direction in which the genre is heading. This is GÃ¡rgolas at his best on the album.
“Amor TÃ³xico” with Lyanno
Lyanno and Rauw Alejandro are the new wave of reggaeton artists who mix the genre with elements of R&B. GÃ¡rgolas gives Lyanno a chance to shine solo in âAmor TÃ³xico,â where the Puerto Rican artist’s voice soars as he sings sexy and sweet stuff. It’s a magical slice of perreo pop.
âPromesaâ with Eladio CarriÃ³n
Boricua rapper Eladio CarriÃ³n is known for his aggressive rhymes, but in âPromesaâ he sings at the top of his lungs to electro-funk beats. With the pop direction reggaeton has taken in recent times, GÃ¡rgolas seems to have already got a head start.
