The most recent arrived with the stratospheric success of “Despacito,” which kicked off a second Latin Explosion with full force in 2017. The Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee hit, later featuring verses by Justin Bieber, made Latin music a hot commodity once again, with the popularity of social media and streaming platforms only amplifying its presence.
“It was all a snowball effect that was never really in sight,” says Fonsi, a five-time Latin Grammy winner — four of those awards for “Despacito.” “It was just crazy — crossing over without me having to sing in English, and Justin Bieber’s addition to the equation four months later for the remix.”
What Emilio Estefan calls the “reverse crossover” was in full effect. The success of the song inspired collaborations with Anglo artists looking to sing in Spanish.

In an interview this week with GQ magazine, the pop icon lamented that the studio had “messed the music up” in the latest version, which was released earlier this year.
John said, “Music was so much a part of the original and the music in the current film didn’t have the same impact. The magic and joy were lost. The soundtrack hasn’t had nearly the same impact in the charts that it had 25 years ago, when it was the bestselling album of the year. The new soundtrack fell out of the charts so quickly.”
The Brit musician composed music for the original 1994 animated classic, including the feted song Can You Feel The Love Tonight. He also composed music for the film’s hit stage adaptation.
In an interview with GQ U.K., the legendary musician criticized Disney’s remake of “The Lion King,” citing the film’s music as a “huge disappointment.”
“The new version of The Lion King was a huge disappointment to me, because I believe they messed the music up. Music was so much a part of the original and the music in the current film didn’t have the same impact,” John said. “The magic and joy were lost.”
John also highlighted the soundtrack’s commercial performance, arguing that the franchise’s original music debuted to a much stronger reception in 1994.

The legendary artist, who famously composed the score to the 1994 original, gave his thoughts about the new film during a recent sit down with British GQ to promote his new memoir, Me (out now).
Candid as ever, John called the new version of the film “a huge disappointment to me.”
Why was he so underwhelmed? Apparently, it had to do with the film’s treatment of his music.
Directed by Sophie Muller, the music video features scenes of Rexha reimagined as Maleficent and wandering through the film’s fantasy landscape, leading a marathon of women and snippets of the film. The variety of running women highlight body positivity, people with physical disabilities and racial diversity. Over the years Muller has directed videos for Beyoncé, Shakira, the Killers and No Doubt.
The wicked Disney sequel begins several years after the 2014 “Maleficent,” which retold the classic “Sleeping Beauty” from the perspective of the villain. The film follows the strained relationship between Princess Aurora (played by Elle Fanning “The Neon Demon”) and Maleficent (played by Angelina Jolie) amidst Aurora’s upcoming wedding and emerging alliances in the magical realm.

And it certainly turned in an impressive performance at the worldwide box office, raking in $1.62 billion for Disney – a company that was still riding high after the runaway success of Avengers: Endgame.
That’s not to say The Lion King didn’t have its fair share of detractors, with some critics even going so far as to suggest that transitioning Disney’s Hamlet parable to the realm of live-action was wholly unnecessary, as it robbed the film of its heart and soul. Elton John certainly thinks so, too, after telling GQ that The Lion King of 2019 left him “hugely disappointed,” largely due to the movie’s handling of the original soundtrack.

In a new teaser video, cast members Celia Rose Gooding and Antonio Cipriano give Morissette’s 1996 hit, “Head Over Feet” a tender revamp. Shot in the same intimate style as her original music video, the two transform Morissette’s swooning monologue into a dynamic interplay between two young souls, teetering precariously on the edge of falling in love.

Video posted online Friday, showed Trump criticizing the media mogul, during a campaign rally in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
He began by bashing former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. Last year Winfrey back the Democrat, who ultimately lost to Republican Brian Kemp.
“Our friend Brian Kemp, he did a number on Stacey Abrams,” Trump told the crowd. “She’s still saying, ‘What happened? What happened?'”
“She had Oprah,” Trump quipped, adding that even with help from the TV titan and former President Barack Obama, Abrams still lost.
“You know, Oprah used to be a very good friend of mine. She used to go to Mar-a-Lago,” he added.
Trump told supporters Winfrey was a frequent guest at his Florida golf course and enjoyed the food there.
“She loved the key lime pie,” he said to laughter.
In Hong Kong, the street protests have adopted a new anthem to fuel passions, while on the domestic front, President Donald Trump managed to get into a dust-up with the Prince estate. He also found time to put down “little” Bruce Springsteen and let the world know that he didn’t need any music superstars to appear at his rallies in order to draw a crowd (perhaps disappointing Lee Greenwood and Toby Keith).
