Canary Island R&B artist Maikel Delacalle has created a lot of hype around his latest album Codigos, and he has finally given us what we have all been waiting for months.
Códigos is a pure R&B album that keeps the essence of yesteryear but with a fresh touch and current sounds. This is something that only Delacalle knows how to do.
Maikel has a built-in message in the title of the album; Códigos, something that, according to him, is missing both in music and in the street. This is how he opens the album, with an energetic title track in which he makes it clear that without having a personal code, there is for anyone to have loyalty to oneself.
He already dropped “Con Dios Delante”, telling stories of the street in a more romantic and positive way, without details, with cunning. And this summer Tamar has sung the remix of “Mi Nena”, the version she released with Quevedo.
It highlights the Maikel that we like the most, singing with a magical voice. More importantly as he himself says, he did it “without autotuning” which many less talented recording artists are using as a crutch to hide a lack of musical acumen.
His creativity and dreams have no limits, and he recently revealed how much he enjoys listening to gospel; and his desire to put gospel themes into a song. Perhaps this is how the album track “Ya No Está” was born with a chorus that transports you to another place.
There is also a nod to T-Pain with “Stripper” and another homage to Tyga’s fresh and clubby style with the track “MP6”, which is very hard and very fresh. But our crown jewel is one of the last singles he released “No Le Llames Amor”, an R&B that captures and hypnotizes listeners with an unforgettable beat.
Great job Maikel! We loved it and it’s time to listen to it if you don’t already have it on loop in your headphones, lifting you up to the very Teide. From G13 Magazine, we send you a hug and we hope to see you very soon in our club in Tenerife.
