Monsieur Job To Perform at the Colombia Billboard Latin Music Showcase in Bogota on July 26

The Band Will Join Wisin & Yandel, Greecy, Cosculluela, Choquibtown, Arthur Hanlon and More for A Spectacular Night of Multimedia and Music

On the heels of their highly successful and widely talked about performance at the ICON Awards in Colombia on June 13th, the fast rising international Pop/Latino/Underground group Monsieur Job will be performing alongside some of the industry’s top artists including Wisin & Yandel, Greecy, Cosculluela, Choquibtown and Arthur Hanlon at the Colombia Billboard Latin Music Showcase on Friday July 26th at the Movistar Arena in Bogota. Last year, the Billboard Latin Music Showcase was held for the first time in Bogota, where Colombian artists such as Manuel Medrano, Maia and Gusi, among others performed.

Monsieur Job has been very busy so far this year, releasing new music including “Vidana”, “Mi Contagie”, “Dulce Soledad”, “Gucci Celine”, “Desechable”, “Fire Fire (Block Remix)”, “Gidi Gidi Gi”, “Tanto Tiempo Sin Verte”, “I Wanna Be Your Dog (Block Remix)”, and “Flexin (Block Remix)” and producing videos for many of the singles including media favorites “Busque Mal”(which was also directed by Iye Teblu AKA Toby Holguin and his production company Mierda Frita) and “Homie (Block Remix)” Feat. Vick D.

Along with the singles and videos, bandleader Toby Holguin has shifted focus somewhat recently, adding writing/directing/acting/producing to his resume with TWO upcoming films – his new debut short film, the aforementioned “Gidi Gidi Gi” which he wrote and directed as Iye Teblu, along with Peruvian film “Un Hombre Sin Ley”. Both are through his “Mierda Frita” production company based in Bogotá, Colombia that dedicates itself to film products like music videos, short films, and feature films as well as film services.

Toby Holguin lives music and gives music life. It was Toby’s vision to create Monsieur Job, a band that will rock you make you move your feet. The band, whose name is derived from “Job” of the bible; a righteous man who is tested by God, enduring many tragedies and hardships while struggling to remain faithful – will make you cry with passion. Formed by Holguin from Cali, Colombia, a beautiful place high in the mountains above the clouds. Toby then asked Charlie Illera from Barranquilla, Colombia, and Leo Jaramillo from Bogota, Colombia to become one musically as Monsieur Job. All of them live and breathe their own style of music combined they are Monsieur Job. Toby, Leo and Charlie spin records as DJs constantly for different pools and venues around the world. Moreover, Toby had the idea to start doing Urban Music besides Chill Out and Electronic Music, which is the vision that created the album “Bass Passi”. They started dropping broken beats with a more festive, shaky, groovy Caribbean Latin flavor turning it into an international exclusive mash up of world talents and a unique blend of genres.

For their debut release, Chow Chow Eyyy Pow Pow, the record has hit the Euro Indie Music Chart at #1 for 9 consecutive weeks as well as progressive singles; “Kick it” Remix feat. Charly Black, “Pica Pica”, Niña Shake Your Body” feat. No Mercy & Vojke Djans and “Chilliando Hangueando” feat. Cholo reaching the #1 position as well, the Digital Radio Tracker Top 10, and Top 200 for Best Albums, #2 for the Billboard Latin Rhythm Albums Chart, and the Billboard Top 10 Heatseekers Albums Chart for their album “Bass Passi”. This album was recorded in Bogota and Miami at Basswalk Studios, Outta Limits Studios in Miami, and Barba Studios in Belgrade and mastered at Sterling Studios, New York.

Te Bote 2

Five of the most influential urban artists of the genre, plus the sensual and unequaled touch of “The Diva of the Bronx” in Jennifer Lopez, give a new “flavor” to one of the most listened to songs of 2018.

“Te Bote 2,” produced by the young Puerto Rican, Young Martino, is a new version of the original song “Te Bote,” which swept downloads on all digital platforms in 2018. In addition, it became the most reproduced from YouTube worldwide this year and now has its “sequel”, a Spanglish style mix, which aims to position the issue in the Anglo-Saxon market.

“La Diva del Bronx” is in charge of giving the single the feminine, sensual, and international touch, making a participation in the song with a letter completely in English, without leaving aside its distinctive Latin flavor. On the other hand, Casper Mágico, Nio García, Wisin, Yandel and Cosculluela contribute a new letter in Spanish, combining the best of Trap and Reggaetón in a musical piece that reaches to 7 minutes.

“Te Bote 2” has its official video in the hands of the renowned director Fernando Lugo. It is now available on YouTube. Check it out here!

The theme is destined to become the new urban anthem of the year 2019, thanks to the “explosive combination” of its performers who invite us to enjoy a good rumba in both English and Spanish.

 

DJ Snake ft. Selena Gomez, Ozuna & Cardi B

The official video for “Taki Taki” by DJ Snake featuring Selena Gomez, Ozuna, and Cardi B, directed by Colin Tilley, is out now. A sneak peak of the video first aired tonight in a commercial spot in partnership with YouTube Music during the American Music Awards.

Watch the video HERE.

Currently the most-streamed song in the world on Spotify for a week straight now, “Taki Taki” marks the second global number one record for the French DJ/producer (his first being “Lean On” ft. , his 2015 collaboration with Major Lazer), and a first number one for Selena Gomez, Ozuna, and Cardi B, who is the first female rapper to top the chart.

In addition, “Taki Taki” has peaked as the #2 song in the world on iTunes, and reached #1 on iTunes in 25 countries. Meanwhile, it’s also peaked as the #1 trending video on YouTube in the U.S.

The worldwide smash success of “Taki Taki” was boosted by Spotify’s recent launch of Global X — a new playlist full of rhythmic crossover hits from cultures around the world. Spotify accompanied the playlist’s launch with a unique vertical video for the bilingual, Latin-music-infused “Taki Taki,” which the platform hails as “a true mix of cultures.”

DJ Snake’s 2016 hit “Let Me Love You” ft. Justin Bieber reached a billion streams on Spotify. That achievement makes him only the fifth artist in Spotify history (along with Drake, Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber, and The Chainsmokers) to have two songs earn a billion streams each on the platform. DJ Snake first hit the billion-stream mark with “Lean On” ft. MØ, his 2015 collaboration with Major Lazer.

Having toured the world this summer, DJ Snake will return to the U.S. this fall for two very special shows. This Halloween season, the world-class producer will headline sold-out dates at New York City’s Avant Gardner (on October 26) and L.A.’s legendary Shrine (on October 31).

With its worldly rhythms and infectious energy, “Taki Taki” continues DJ Snake’s track record of global hits, from “Turn Down for What” to “Let Me Love You” to the club record of the summer: his India-inspired “Magenta Riddim. “Taki Taki” arrives ahead of DJ Snake’s forthcoming album, which is set to drop soon.
