De Camino Pa' La Cima [Bonus Tracks]
The manifesto of J Alvarez is to create a modern form of reggaeton influenced more by R&B than hip-hop. If the success of his last single, "La Pregunta" -- number eight on the year-end Hot Latin Songs chart, receiving more than 25 million YouTube views -- is any indicator, he's on his way. His debut Sony offering, De Camino Pa' La Cima, doesn't completely forsake the old-school -- one can hear it in the swaggering rap on album-opener "Te Cambiamos el Juego" -- but there's a new whole new flavor at work here. Check the rippling synth grooves of "H?blame de Ti," the souled-out midtempo electronic ballad "Siempre Me Llamas," the monstrous hook in the dancefloor slammer "La Tempuratura," and the edgy electro strut in closer "D?ndote Calor."
