As August comes to a wrap, Billboard wants to know: What’s the best Latin collaboration of the month, according to you?
Just before the month ended, rising Argentine rapper Nicki Nicole and Puerto Rican hitmaker Mora teamed up for their first-ever collaboration “Toa La Vida,” released Tuesday (Aug. 31). A slowed-down reggaeton track, “Toa La Vida” is at its core a love song about feeling that you don’t need more than each other.
“This song with Mora came out of the blue,” Nicole said about the writing process. “We really liked each other’s work so when I was in Miami we wrote to get together and it happened. When we met in the studio we instantly had a great vibe and the song flowed very naturally and organically. He brought his style and I brought mine, and the song turned out amazing.”
Also highlighted in the fan-based poll (not affiliated with any awards show) are all the Latin collabs featured on Billboard’s weekly First Stream Latin including Greeicy and Alejandro Sanz’s rhythmic pop track “Lejos Conmigo,” Tini and Manuel Turizo’s nostalgic reggaeton-pop song “Maldita Foto” and Maria Becerra and Karol G’s girl-power anthem “Wow Wow.”
The previous winning collaborations are Enrique Iglesias and Farruko’s “Me Pasé” (July); Nobeat and Khea’s “Medio Crazy” (June); J Balvin and Maria Becerra’s “Que Mas Pues” (May); Sebastian Yatra and Myke Towers’ “Pareja del Año” (April); Danny Ocean and Justin Quiles’ “Cuantas Veces” (March); VF7 and Lunay’s “Codigo Secreto” (February); and Maria Becerra, Cazzu, “Animal” (January).
