Thalía released a new song last Friday — part of an upcoming, yet-to-be titled LP, but a follow up to 2014’s Amore Mio — and it’s called “Desde esa noche.” Because reggaeton was the hottest thing fifteen years ago, and because the Colombian singer Maluma is a slightly less played out J Balvin, Thalía paired both of them together in an attempt to make a wave in the gigantic sea of Latino urban music, which nowadays is really just regular pop music.
But is Thalía too late to the game? That depends on how you look at it; if you believe she’s a trendsetter in any way, then yes, she’s laughably late to the game, but if you believe she’s making music for bored housewives, then María la del Barrio right on the money.
To her credit, “Desde esa noche,” with its cumbia-ranchera flair, does seem slightly more adventurous than Paulina Rubio’s, Thalía’s lifelong rival, similar offering. But you be the judge of this one, kiddos. All I’m gonna say is that “Desde esa noche” has a similar melody to Tito El Bambino’s “Mi cama huele a ti.”
