Eight top performers at Vibra Urbana Miami 2021
Vibra Urbana did not wait long to develop. After debuting in 2020 as a one-night reggaeton concert at the Watsco Center in Coral Gables, the event has expanded to Orlando this summer for a two-day sold-out festival. But the organizers of Vibra Urbana haven’t forgotten the roots of South Florida. the urban music The celebration will make a comeback in Miami on Saturday, December 18 and Sunday, December 19 at the Miami-Dade County Fair and Exhibition.
While the festival’s rapid expansion may seem a bit hasty, it does make sense. Reggaeton remains a very popular genre, which is why this weekend’s event is almost exhausted. In fact, the genre is so popular that Vibra Urbana is one of the two main Latin music events in Miami this weekend. (Alex Sensation’s annual MiamiBash at FTX Arena on Friday, December 17 is the other.)
Vibra Urbana announced around 70 acts split evenly between the two days, making it difficult to recommend one day over the other. Corn New times can recommend acts that are worth checking out.
Listed alphabetically, here are the numbers you’ll want to be number one for at Vibra Urbana.
Anuel co-title Vibra Urbana with Don Omar. The reggaeton juggernaut and Miami resident is as hot as ever. His most recent album, Las Leyendas Nunca Mueren, currently occupies the first place on billboards Top of the best Latin albums. And, yes, it can be hard to get past the hate-filled track “Intocable” that he sadly released and the hate-filled former president he appeared to support in 2020. Still, there’s no denying that Anuel has the knack for hits, including this year’s banger with Jhay Cortez, “Ley Seca”.
One of the first Colombian women to join the boys-only club of reggaeton remains relevant more than a decade later. Farina took part in Gloria Estefan’s performance that kicked off last month’s Latin Grammys. And her nomination for Best Urban Song for the love triangle track “A Fuego” made her the only woman in the category that night. In September, she mixed things up when she collaborated with rapper Lil Durk on “Nueva Vida”. Thanks to Farina for keeping things interesting.
Reggaeton singer-songwriter Feid is no longer a rising star but an established one. He has Latin Grammy nominations to his name, and his star-studded remix “Porfa” reached number one on the Billboard Latin Airplay table last year. Most recently, Ferxxo performed a duet on “Friky” with fellow Medellin native Karol G, for whom he opened last month at the FTX Arena. Don’t be surprised if you see Feid dining at Flanigan’s before or after his Vibra Urbana performance on Sunday. He’s a big fan.
Born in Connecticut, Quiles returns to Vibra Urbana for the second year in a row and this time brings with him one of the biggest hits of his career, “Loco”. Hopefully the Zion y Lennox collaborators – who are part of Saturday’s lineup – will return to the festival on Sunday to sing the bouncy summer anthem with him. It has been a momentous year for Quiles. He not only found success with “Loco” and “Jeans”, but he became a part of the Fast Furious familia when her collaboration with Dalex and Konshens, “Real”, was played in the final sequel to the film franchise, F9.
Towers is also back for the second year of Vibra Urbana, a trap and reggaeton star that has become a staple feature for many Latin artists today. Towers released their album Easy money baby just before the pandemic broke and has managed to keep the momentum going since then. Meanwhile, the Puerto Rican native was part of nine songs that reached the top ten of billboards Hot Latin Songs Chart, including “Bandido” and Ozuna’s “Caramelo” remix.
How is it for all-rounders? Nohemy sings. She raps. She writes. She acts. (She starred in the Original YouTube series produced by Natti Natasha Bravas). And she played college basketball on a scholarship. Nohemy – listed in Vibra Urbana’s “Rising Stars” category – remains somewhat under the radar. But the music industry has given enough thought to the urban pop star to open it up to Nicky Jam, Migos, Jhay Cortez and HER.
The singer of “Todo de Ti” and “Tattoo” – back for the second year of Vibra Urbana – seems destined to join the high level of the reggaeton genre, although he is not a traditional reggaeton artist. He’s a guy who puts out electro-pop songs reminiscent of the Weeknd and who puts out fluid choreographed dance moves reminiscent of Michael Jackson. Alejandro is deviating from the norm, and that’s a good thing.
The pride of Panama serves reggaeton with a soulful side. Sech’s voice is so heartfelt and compelling that you can’t help but hope that he picks up the girl in the end – or, in the case of the fire breaking song “911”, picks up another girl. . The “Relación” and “Si Te Vas” singer is set to do double duty this weekend, performing at MiamiBash on Friday and Vibra Urbana on Saturday.
