While it’s still a bit premature to co-sign on his self-proclaimed status as “la leyenda” (the legend), Yandel has definitely been putting it on smash lately with a string of collabos, remixes and smartly chosen singles lifted from last year’s De Lider A Leyenda.
Rather than continue to milk his latest solo album for radio hits, the Yan Man recently dropped an EP of new music to support his current De Lider A Leyenda Tour. The highlight from the new collection is “Jaque Mate” which finds Yandel once again stepping out of his musical comfort zone and trying his hand at something decidedly less reggaeton and definitely a bit more… mambo-y. It’s a welcome change as that beat is undeniable which, coupled with those “ta ta ta”‘s in the refrain, should keep the diehards happy and the club floor packed.
If you missed it the first time, do yourself a solid and also check out Yandel trying his hand at salsa(!) with the remix from my favorite track off of the De Lider… album, radio smash-that-wasn’t “En La Oscuridad”.
