Get ready, world music lovers, because Rene Lopez’s newest album has hit world charts this past July, and let me tell you, it is FULL of flavor! E.L.S, an acronym for Electric Latin Soul, is a musical genre which Lopez developed, in which he melds Latin soul, Boogaloo, Rock, R&B, Hip-Hop and more to create this culturally eclectic album. Besides the fact that I just want to get up and dance while listening to E.L.S, each song makes me feel like I have been transported to multiple places in the world before the song is even over!
“Electric Latin Soul”, the hot new single off of E.L.S
Like me, Rene Lopez grew up in New York City, where the melting pot of cultures surrounding him clearly influenced his musical development. Being a first generation Puerto Rican American himself, Lopez’s Latin roots are strongly reflected in his soulful beats that cannot help but make you want to mambo. So, who’s down for the salsa club tonight?
