Slow Reggaeton music is like the chilled-out version of this popular urban genre. Instead of the high-energy beats that get you dancing without a care, it’s all about the romantic vibes. “Dame Luz” by Baraka truly represents this mellow style.
Of course, the beats are more relaxed, and the lyrics often get all smooth and sexy. For sure, it’s the ideal jam for a late night or a cozy evening with your special someone.
So, in plain English, slow Reggaeton music is the after-party where you can just groove at your own pace.
“Dame Luz” by Baraka is produced by Los Del Control, a proficient Spanish duo known for their high-quality collaborations. Indeed, last year, they composed “La Solución” for rising singer-songwriter Bea Pelea.
Furthermore, I believe they filmed the “Dame Luz” music video, on a quick getaway to Portugal. These dudes are kinda like the Reggaeton adaptation of the Backstreet Boys, and they might just be the first boyband in this music category. Pretty cool, right?
“Dame Luz,” which translated means “Give Me Light” seems to touch on the theme of a past relationship and how to overcome the pain it caused. However, it also conveys a message of optimism about current life.

Bad Gyal Lights Up Lima With Unforgettable Concert Experience
Believe it or not, seeing Spanish Reggaeton star Bad Gyal live was my first concert after the long COVID hiatus, and my dancing feet were more than ready for it. On December 2nd, Bad Gyal brought her infectious energy to Lima, Peru as part of the “Road To Primavera” concert series traveling across South America.
In the Heart of Lima: Centro de Convenciones Leguía
The concert was held at Centro de Convenciones Leguía, a spacious theater-style venue perfectly sized for the eager crowd. From the moment I walked through the doors, the warm and festive atmosphere among fans was palpable, we were all united in our excitement to experience Bad Gyal’s show.
Moreover, it didn’t take long for the venue temperature to rise once Bad Gyal and her dancers took the stage. Her confident personality, coupled with dazzling laser lighting and sexy choreography, had the entire audience dancing and singing along non-stop.
Bad Gyal has rightfully earned her status as one of the biggest names in Reggaeton today. Fans of all ages – from Gen Z’ers to older Millennials like myself who have followed her career from the beginning, collectively lost ourselves in the energy and euphoria of the night.
Of course, the shared love for her Latin music transcended generational boundaries, uniting fans in a rhythmic celebration.
Over nearly 90 minutes, Bad Gyal thrilled the loyal Lima crowd with performances of her biggest jams like “Fiebre,” “Flow 2000,” and recent chart-topper “Chulo.” But surprisingly, “Mercadona,” her bilingual track, was left out of the setlist.
Additionally, I was left with the doubt if she teased any snippets from her upcoming album, ‘La Joia’ slated for release in January 2024. All in all, she created an atmosphere of ecstasy that is simply indescribable.
If you get the chance to attend a Bad Gyal concert during her 2024 international tour, don’t hesitate, she’s a must-see performer who will have you grinning, sweating, and dancing non-stop from start to finish.
This Reggaeton queen knows how to put on an unforgettable show, and she left all of us in Lima wanting more…

La Cruz Defies Hetero-Norms Of Reggaeton With New Gay Anthem
La Cruz is really turning his dreams into reality as a rising gay Reggaeton star. The dude just dropped his second single, “Easy Boy,” and he’s already taken over the Internet, racking up thousands of streams.
If you’re a big fan of his first international hit, “Te Conoci Bailando,” I can guarantee this new banger also deserves all the praise. Between the steamy Spanish rhymes and the infectious beats, this song is an instant addition to my Spotify Reggaeton playlist.
Moreover, it’s no surprise to see La Cruz achieve major success so quickly. Ever since arriving on the scene, he’s been on a mission to change the game and make urban music more inclusive.
Seeing such an unapologetically gay artist like him top the charts gives me so much hope. Certainly, the next step is a new album inspired by all the relatable stories he raps about.
By all means, he is at the forefront of Reggaeton’s evolution, boldly defying the hetero-norms that have traditionally characterized the genre. In particular, this shift is undoubtedly considered positive, as it not only breaks barriers but also opens up new avenues for diversity within the music industry.
