EDITORS’ NOTES

Colombian pop quartet Piso 21 teased the arrival of Ubuntu for quite a while, but these dreamy tropical anthems turned out to be more than worth the wait. Whether angelic or exuberant, the classic boy-band harmonies of their 2012 debut album return, along with those massive hooks, precision-tooled for maximum replay value. But the foursome's taste in beats obviously grew more adventurous during Ubuntu's long gestation, whether through the surprisingly atmospheric synths that steam up "Te Amo" or the way "Tiempo" transforms Latin trap drums into the perfect backing for an aching ballad.

About Piso 21

Colombia's Piso 21 are an all-male outfit known for their romantic, R&B-influenced, dance-oriented Latin pop. Hailing from Medellin, Piso 21 feature the talents of vocalist Pablo Mejía (aka Pablito), vocalist/guitarist Juan David Huertas (aka the Profe), vocalist/guitarist David Escobar (aka Dim), and vocalist Juan David Castaño (aka the LLane). In 2012, they released their full-length debut, Piso 21, which featured the single "Correr el Riesgo." They quickly got attention, earning a nomination for Best New Artist at the 2012 Latin Grammy Awards. More singles followed, including 2014's "Suele Suceder" and 2015's "Quitate la Pena." A year later, the group signed with Warner Music Mexico and in 2018 delivered their sophomore full-length Ubuntu. Buoyed by the singles "Me Llamas" and "Besándote," the album debuted at number 13 on the Billboard Top Latin Albums chart. ~ Matt Collar
