First Stream Latin: New Music From Junior H, Kim Loaiza, Carin Leon & More – Billboard

First Stream Latin is a compilation of the best new Latin songs, albums and videos recommended by the Billboard Latin editors. Check out this week’s picks below.

Junior H, “Nací Para Amarte” (Warner Music Latina)

Once a sad boy, always a sad boy. Junior H digs deep for an ultra personal heartbreak anthem that stays true to his sad sierreño style. The 21-year-old Mexican singer-songwriter delivers “Naci Para Amarte,” powered by melancholic melodies via an acoustic guitar that pairs perfectly with his nostalgic lyrics. “If only you knew how often I keep checking my phone. What will we do? If there’s something that should never die, baby, that should be our love,” Junior H sings in his distinguished hoarse voice. — GRISELDA FLORES

Casper Magico & Bryant Myers, “Karma” (Flow La Movie/GLAD Empire)

Produced by the late Flow La Movie, Casper Mágico and Bryant Myers join forces once again for their new single “Esclava.”
This mid-tempo urban collaboration follows a handful of collaborations between the Puerto Rican rapper who often link up for new songs and remixes. “Tell me, how do you expect me to forgive you? You failed thinking that I was not going to find out … Karma exists, baby. And one day you will be next,” Casper declares in the song. Flow, who often worked with Casper Mágico as his producer and was his manager, passed away at 38 on Wednesday (Dec. 15) in a plane crash. — INGRID FAJARDO

Carin Leon, “Como Que Me Enamoro” (Tamarindo Rekordsz)

A mix of covers (including his must-listen version of Selena’s “Si Una Vez”) and original songs, Sonora-born Carin Leon released his new album Pistiembre Todo El Año. A standout on the 22-track set, which was recorded live, is the banda track “Como Que Me Enamoro” penned by Leon and Gilbran Rosas. “This one is for all of those that are in love,” the 32-year-old chart-topping artist says at the top of the song, and there’s nothing quite like Leon’s golden-voiced delivery of a love ballad, his emotions are palpable. “I’m feeling so hopeful, they say I’m in love, and it’s true, I’m hooked, there’s no denying that.” — G.F.

Google AI Tool Creates Music from Written Descriptions – VOA Learning English

This week, Google researchers published a paper describing results from an artificial intelligence (AI) tool built to create music.

The tool, called MusicLM, is not the first AI music tool to launch. But the examples Google provides demonstrate musical creative ability based on a limited set of descriptive words.

AI shows how complex computer systems have been trained to behave in human-like ways.

Tools like ChatGPT can quickly produce, or generate, written documents that compare well with the work by humans. ChatGPT and similar systems require powerful computers to operate complex machine-learning models. The San Francisco-based company OpenAI launched ChatGPT late…….


Bringing music to the masses… on a tram – BBC

They played to passengers all afternoon on Wednesday.
