Beneath, learn in regards to the collabs which are on our want listing and why we expect they’d work.
Dream collaboration: Rosalía and Billie Eilish
Why it will work: We all know this collaboration is occurring, however the million-dollar query right here is: when? Again in April 2020, the Spanish star stated she had been engaged on ending the track in her “little” studio. “I’ve been making an attempt to complete the Billie Eilish collab. I believe it is getting fairly shut,” she said in an interview.
We have been patiently ready since. May very well be that she’s ready to incorporate it in her forthcoming album. What makes this team-up thrilling is that each artists are experimental, edgy and are distinctive songwriters — we’re in for a experience.
Dream collaboration: Karol G and Rihanna

I really like her lyrics as a result of she sings about love, heartbreak, lady empowerment, and I really feel that now we have related personalities.”
RiRi, who has already collaborated with Shakira, would match completely on the beat of “Bichota” and even on a model new observe.
Dream Collaboration: Junior H and Lil Nas X
Why it will work: Junior H and Lil Nas X symbolize a brand new era of artists that defy the established order by music refusing to be categorized or put in a field. We would like to see this collab occur, and we might assume it really works as a result of each have organically fused two genres (hip-hop with nation or regional Mexican) that just a few years in the past would have appeared unorthodox.
Would not or not it’s cool to have a Spanshlish remix of Lil Nas X’s hip-hop-meets-country observe “Outdated City Highway” that includes the lure corridos rising artist Junior H?
Dream collaboration: Dangerous Bunny and Harry Kinds
Why it will work: Someplace on the street of Britpop and concrete Latin, Harry Kinds and Dangerous Bunny want to satisfy. Not solely are these two artists intelligent and modern in relation to creating music and experimenting with new genres, however they merely make music on their very own phrases — taking a special strategy than what’s trending.
We already bought a style of other pop-rock Dangerous Bunny on El Ultimo Tour del Mundo, and now we’d like to listen to Harry Kinds flirt with old-school reggaeton beats. Plus, we will’t neglect each of their daring and horny fashion-forward types.
Dream collaboration: Kany García and Taylor Swift
Why it will work: This can be probably the most far-fetched collaboration on our want listing, however if you would like one thing, you set it out into the universe, proper? Swift has but to faucet into the Latin house and this pair-up simply is smart. The duet with these pop darlings would work as a result of they each have a approach with achingly stunning, private, and commanding lyrics.

Although he’s a reggaeton star, he’s managed to faucet into hip-hop, dance, and pop melodies all whereas preserving true to his Latin essence. Like Balvin, Submit Malone has confirmed to be a really versatile artist and who is aware of? Possibly a “Circles (Remix)” with a spice of urbano might develop into the subsequent very huge hit of 2021.
Dream collaboration: Camilo and Sam Smith
Why it will work: This collab would work as a result of these two pop crooners aren’t afraid to indicate vulnerability and emotion of their lyrics. Sam Smith’s powerhouse vocals would praise Camilo’s delicate vocals. Like Taylor Swift, Sam Smith has but to collaborate with a Latin artist. It is by no means too late.
Dream collaboration: Natti Natasha and Cardi B
Why it will work: Two of the Dominican Republic’s greatest names: one is a reggaeton all-star and the opposite is hip-hop’s darling. A Natti Natasha and Cardi B collaboration is lengthy overdue. Many instances the 2 Dominicanas have exchanged tweets admiring one another’s work. Properly, we expect 2021 is the yr to set that in stone. Whether or not they take the bachata route, the reggaeton route, the hip-hop route, and even the dembow route, we consider this collab — of full Dominican finesse — can be an vital one in Latin music.
Dream collaboration: Nicki Nicole and Drake
Why it will work: “Colocao como Drake” – that is a catchy refrain line included in Nicki Nicole’s uptempo smash hit “Colocao.” The rising Argentine R&B-trap artist has already expressed her curiosity in collaborating with the Canadian rapper — who has impressed her profession — on a remix for “Colocao,” and we expect it’d work. Drake collaborated with Dangerous Bunny in 2018 on “Mía” the place he sang in Spanish, so what’s another?
Dream collaboration: Daddy Yankee and Missy Elliot
Why it will work: Like J Balvin, Daddy Yankee has already teamed up with English-speaking artists reminiscent of Janet Jackson and Katy Perry, however one artist we expect he’ll mesh completely with is Missy Elliot. A fusion of old-school reggaeton and old-school hip-hop with each Daddy and Missy exchanging their quick-paced, witty freestyles simply sounds just like the collaboration of our ‘90s desires.
