~~February 1, 2016~~
It’s a new week, it’s a new month.
We can still try to carry over the fun that we had during the weekend.
The best way to get started is with music.
Here’s a new catchy tune by Marc Anthony and Gente de Zona:
Gente de Zona (sometimes stylized as Gente D’ Zona) is a Cuban reggaeton (cubaton) group founded by Alexander Delgado in 2000. The group combines reggaeton rhythms with more traditional forms of Cuban music.
Alexander then met Michel Delgado, “El Karo,” and both started playing at parties and official playrooms Guanabacoa, Regla and especially Alamar. The group quickly earned the support of the public in those areas, and soon started participating in international festivals.
Gente de Zona found its first international success following their collaboration with Enrique Iglesias on his 2014 release “Bailando“. The track was awarded three Latin Grammy awards and received widespread international airplay.

“Traidora” came out Friday, January 22

Cuban duo Gente de Zona and Marc Anthony can make really beautiful music together. Literally. Earlier this year, the Cuban duo paired up with the superstar singer for the energetic “La Gozadera,” a mix of reggaetón and Cuban beats with a thumping bass that climbed to No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart.
Now the three want to do it all over again.
On Friday, January 22, Gente de Zona released “Traidora” (Traitor), the new single from their upcoming U.S. debut, Visualízate, out this Spring on Sony Music Latin.
The song, which Billboard was able to listen to exclusively, is more tropical than reggaetón and manages to be rhythmic and lyrical at the same time. Starting with an evocative piano intro, it leads into Anthony’s melancholy vocals (“I know I lost you,” he sings, sentiment overflowing), then gets down to the grit of business with Gente de Zona’s chorus of “Traidora,” over an increasingly present bass.
Why another Marc Anthony duet?
Gente de Zona’s Alexander Delgado is the first to say they’re not just a collab act, despite the fact that they’ve yet to chart alone (past chart-hitting collabs include “Tu me quemas” with Chino y Nacho and “Piensas” with Pitbull).
“We want people to see us not as a band that does collaborations, but as a standalone group,” he said.
“Unfortunately,” he added with a laugh, “Our next single is with Marc.”
But it is for Gente de Zona’s album. With a bonus.
Gente de Zona is managed by Marc Anthony’s new entertainment company, Magnus.
