Louie Vega & The Martinez Brothers Nod to Their New York Roots on ‚Let It Go‘: Exclusive

Avatar

The artwork for Louie Vega and The Martinez Brothers’ new collaboration “Let It Go” shows a young couple locked in embrace, inches away from an inevitable kiss. An arrow-stricken heart hovers under the white glow of the streetlight as the cityscape behind them comes to life. Bright colors like sky blue, crimson and marigold dominate the color scheme, but it’s more than a design meant simply to catch the eye.

Created by Lee Quiñones, the prolific graffiti artist and Supreme collaborator who rose to fame during the subway art movement, the design — like the track — is a love letter to New York City.

In some ways, Vega and the Martinez Brothers could be the same people. Vega, Chris and Steve were all born in the Bronx, Nuyoricans and proud of it. They had family members who frequented the legendary Paradise Garage, and all were already DJing to hot crowds as teenagers. But whereas Vega helped pioneer New York house music in the ‘90s, both solo and alongside Kenny “Dope” Gonzales as Masters At Work, the Martinezes were its disciples.

“Our roots in dance music are from the deep soulful sound, with people such as Louie and Kenny as our idols,” the Brothers tell Billboard Dance.

Both standout acts in today’s scene, Vega and the Brothers first linked two years ago for a major collaboration spree. Their first joint release, 2018’s “Shut the Door,” bridged not only their respective generations, but added a third with the vocals of salsa legend (and Vega’s uncle) Héctor Lavoe.

Similarly, “Let It Go” represents “what New York is about, past and present,” say the Brothers. “Visually, just being from the inner city and basically living amongst graffiti; it has always been a mega influence on us.” Percussive and soulful house music with just a hint of grit, the track is the perfect composite of both Vega and the Brothers’ styles. At its heart are hypnotic, seductive vocals from San Francisco-based singer Marc E. Bassy. “[He] wrote the tune in, like, ten minutes,“ say the Brothers, „and kept it extra New York taking you ‘uptown on Broadway.’”

“This project is so special because we are all Nuyoricans and have contributed to New York City’s music and arts culture,” says Vega of the team effort. “The Martinez Brothers, Louie Vega and Lee Quiñones on one record — [it’s] art, music and generations coming together in a powerful way.”

The Brothers add, “We just always want to big New York up in all aspects of art, paying respect to our heroes while also pushing it forward. It’s super important not only as Nuyoricans, but also just true lovers of the culture.”

Listen to “Let It Go” exclusively on Billboard Dance before its release tomorrow, November 15.

2019 Latin Grammys Predictions: Who Should & Will Win

Avatar

Each year, Billboard offers its analysis of who will win and who should win in the main categories in the Latin Grammys. These are not necessarily our favorites. Instead, these are educated guesses based on the marketplace and past voting behavior.

Below are our selections ahead of Thursday night’s (Nov. 14) Latin Grammys ceremony. (For simplicity’s sake, we are only listing the title and artist for each nomination, not full credits.) The Latin Grammys air live Thursday night at 8 p.m. ET from Las Vegas‘ MGM Grand Garden Arena.

RECORD OF THE YEAR
„Parecen Viernes“ — Marc Anthony
„Verdades Afiladas“ — Andrés Calamaro
„Ahí Ahí“ — Vicente García
„Kitipun“ — Juan Luis Guerra 4.40
„Querer Mejor“ — Juanes Featuring Alessia Cara
„La Plata“ — Juanes Featuring Lalo Ebratt
„Aute Couture“ — Rosalía
„Mi Persona Favorita“ — Alejandro Sanz & Camila Cabello
„No Tengo Nada“ — Alejandro Sanz
„Cobarde“ — Ximena Sariñana

Who Should Win: Juan Luis Guerra’s “Kitipun” is completely different from what we hear today, but the sound is vintage and powerful Juan Luis Guerra. It speaks to his essence. Likewise, Marc Anthony’s “Parecen Viernes” is sophisticated, beautifully produced tropical music that takes the genre to another level.

Who Will Win: All eyes are on Rosalía and her new take on flamenco. While her songs are not immediately hummable, the way she produces them breaks rank in many ways.  The world expects her to win. On the other end of the spectrum, Juanes’ “La Plata” featuring Lalo Ebratt would be a nod for this year’s Person of the Year.

SONG OF THE YEAR:
„Calma“ — Pedro Capó
„Desconstrução“ — Tiago Iorc
„El País“ — Rubén Blades
„Kitipun“ — Juan Luis Guerra
„Mi Persona Favorita“ — Camila Cabello & Alejandro Sanz
„No Tengo Nada“ — Alejandro Sanz
„Quédate“ — Kany García & Tommy Torres
„Querer Mejor“ —Juanes Featuring Alessia Cara
„Un Año“ —Sebastián Yatra Featuring Reik
„Ven“ — Fonseca

Who Should Win: “Un año” by Sebastian Yatra featuring Reik is a modern pop song that’s a standout in the middle of an urban world and in this category, in the middle of many legacy names. Likewise, Pedro Capó’s “Calma” is a breath of fresh air; the little song that could thanks to its sunny outlook.

Who Will Win: „Mi Persona Favorita” by Camila Cabello and Alejandro Sanz marries the perennially favorite Sanz with Cabello, a coming together of generations, languages and styles. The meaningful lyrics add weight. But this win will likely go to  “Querer Mejor“ by Juanes featuring Alessia Cara. Its stable of songwriters, from Camilo to Tainy, guarantee a strong voting base; it’s a prime example of collaboration; and, of course, it’s Juanes.

ALBUM OF THE YEAR
Visceral – Paula Arenas
Paraíso Road Gang – Rubén Blades
Cargar La Suerte – Andrés Calamaro
Agustín – Fonseca
Vida – Luis Fonsi
El Mal Querer – Rosalía
#Eldisco – Alejandro Sanz
¿Dónde Bailarán Las Niñas? – Ximena Sariñana
Mas De Mi – Tony Succar
Fantasía – Sebastián Yatra

Who will & should win: This is a standout category. But our bet is on Rosalía’s El Mal Querer, an ambitious, forward-looking album with roots in tradition. The ability to blend past and present and capture a global imagination makes this album, in our opinion, the front-runner. 

BEST NEW ARTIST
Aitana
Burning Caravan
Cami
Fer Casillas
Chipi Chacón
Elsa y Elmar
Greeicy
Juan Ingaramo
Paulo Londra
Nella

Who will & should win: Hard to imagine this award going to anyone other than Paulo Londra, the maverick Argentine rapper who bucks trends with his romantic, melodic fare. Collabs with the likes of Ed Sheeran should definitely up the ante. Having said this, Colombia’s dynamic Greeicy also has a strong shot here, especially at a time when the world is looking for women. Nella, with her lustrous voice, is also someone to look out for.

BEST URBAN/FUSION PERFORMANCE
„Tenemos Que Hablar“ — Bad Bunny
„Calma (Remix)“ — Pedro Capó & Farruko
„Pa‘ Olvidarte (Remix)“ — ChocQuibtown, Zion & Lennox, Farruko Featuring Manuel Turizo
„Con Calma“ — Daddy Yankee Featuring Snow
„Otro Trago“ — Sech Featuring Darell

Who will & should win: In this marvelously competitive category it is truly near impossible to pick. Every track here is an example of something done right artistically and executed well commercially. With that as a starting point, our bets are on Pedro Capó and Farruko’s “Calma,” which managed to cross the pop-urban line like few tracks this year.
