Speedy Nueva Generacion
- Words: Patrick Sisson
- Label: Sequence
Though he's spitting high-pitched Spanish like an auctioneer, rising reggaeton star Speedy isn't merely repping for San Juan on Nueva Generacion. Leading off with a remix of his international hit "Sientelo," featuring the sex-starved English lyrics of lady Lumidee, Speedy slays on 13 fist-pumping tracks with wide appeal. To compliment Speedy's voice, which is stuck in the stratosphere, the music is a hyperactive mix of deep, grimy synths, rollicking drums and mariachi guitar lines. Daddy Yankee's "Gasolina" has spread far and wide, and Speedy proves he's one of a crop of reggaeton stars that may set it ablaze.
