EDITORS’ NOTES

The highlight of this infectious snapshot is undeniably “Traicionera,” a genre-bending smash poised between heartsick Latin balladry and fizzy tropical house. The rest of the EP finds sensitive Colombian playboy Sebastian Yatra trying out a range of radio-ready styles. He transforms into a brooding rocker for the hard-edged but haunting “Para Olvidar,” rediscovers his chill with the insinuating acoustic pop of “Te Regalo,” and finally vents his pent-up emotions on the orchestral epic “Como Mirarte.”

TITLE TIME

About Sebastián Yatra

With his warm blend of romantic balladry, Latin pop, and reggaeton, singer/songwriter Sebastián Yatra first found success as a 19-year-old when his 2013 single, "El Psicólogo," became a hit in his native Colombia and around Latin America. Three years later, the reggaeton/EDM hit "Traicionera" further established him as a Latin pop star.

Yatra moved from his native Colombia to the U.S. at the age of five. Growing up in Miami, he learned to play guitar and piano and became a singer in his teenage years. After his 2013 single "El Psicólogo" became a hit in Colombia and around Latin America, he earned a widespread following over the next few years, with subsequent singles like "Para Olvidar," "No Me Llames," and "Como Mirarte" also faring well commercially. It was 2016's massive reggaeton and EDM hit "Traicionera" that truly cemented Yatra's popularity in the Latin American market, and he followed up that same year with his first mixtape, The Mixtape Jukebox, Vol. 1. 2017 saw the release of his debut EP, Extended Play Yatra, which included his hit "Traicionera." After a host of singles, EPs, and collaborations, Yatra finally delivered his debut full-length, Mantra, in 2018. ~ Timothy Monger
