Mexican band Reik released their latest album, Ahora, on Thursday, 30 May 2019.
Ahora is a nine-track album that comes three years after 2016’s Des Amor. Here, the listener is treated to the embodiment of Reik’s growth and diversity as a group, featuring their signature Latino pop sound amongst more modern Urbana hits.
The album begins with the fiery collaboration Me Niego featuring Ozuna and Wisin. The collaboration produces a cinematically passionate piece about longing and the reluctance to accept that a relationship is over. This is followed by the steamy Amigos Con Derechos, featuring Maluma.
Next is the sun-soaked Aleluya, featuring Manuel Turizo, the most blatant Urbana featured on Ahora. Here, Turizo’s bombastic raps contrast the band’s dulcet tones as a thundering percussive beat supports them. Other standout songs on the album include the soulful Duele, featuring Winsin & Yandel and the tender Aunque No Deba, featuring Tommy Torres.
The album is available for purchase on iTunes.
