CHART SPOTLIGHT. The summer is far from over, and there will be plenty of chances to hit the clubs. WelcheMusic is convinced that the latest cover of Elvis Crespo’s 1998 hit “Suavemente” dubbed “Suave (Kiss Me)” will become a dancefloor filler. Hot on the heels of “Give Me Everything,” Miami singer and model Nayer returns with the help of both Pitbull and Swedish singer Mohombi. Once again, RedOne has demonstrated his ability to deliver hits. Currently charting with Pitbull’s “Rain on Me,” the Swedish producer has delivered a track similar to Jennifer Lopez’ “On the Floor.”
Back to Nayer, the singer moved to Los Angeles at 14 haven appeared in several ads as well as TV programs such as Sábado Gigante and La piñata loca. Nayer’s new single “Suave (Kiss Me)” is not the first to sample “Suavemente.” In 2005, German techno act Scooter recorded the track. Translating into “smoothly” or “softly” in Spanish, the original is a merengue-style of song, a music and dance from the Dominican Republic. Elvis Crespo is a Puerto Rican-American Latin singer who broke out of the pop group Groupo Manía.
CHART REFLECTION. Despite climbing charts worldwide with “Give Me Everything,” an additional two singles have already been lifted off Pitbull’sPlanet Pit album. “Pause” was issued in early June to promote the album and debuted at No.73 on the Hot 100. And the week after, “Rain Over Me” was released as the third featuring Marc Anthony!
Pitbull collaborated with Jennifer Lopez for “On the Floor” and this time it’s her hubby who’s the musical partner. Again, RedOne has co-written and produced the track which no doubt will set the charts on fire.
The eminent blog Popcrush gives it a 2/5 star rating say that “This song is true to Pitbull’s style, but it’s also very similar to a lot of other Pitbull songs. If it weren’t for Marc Anthony’s own Latin contribution — in English — we might think we’d heard this one before.”
