Spearheading a new generation of Latin artists inspired both by the traditional music of their culture as well as new sounds coming from the streets, Mexican MC and producer W Corona is set to release the EP Nueva Ruta on May 15th, 2020. After his latest album Flow Dealer and a slew of noteworthy singles and collaborations with distinguished urban and Regional Mexican artists, the young artist from Monterrey, Mexico is back with an EP that features six songs that creatively fuse these two influences, creating an increasingly popular sound called regional urbano.
All of the songs on Nueva Ruta were written and produced by W Corona himself. On April 17, he released “Abusando #1”, the EP’s third single. The lyrics of the song refer to a rivalry with another rapper that speaks behind his back. During the song, W Corona challenges his rival with his lyrics and rhymes, reclaiming his title as the voice of the barrio.
Although W Corona has long been associated with urban music, the young artist has been climbing the Regional Mexican charts lately just as much as the urban charts with the singles “Cuadro Chico”, “California High” (a duet with El Chino Del Rancho), “Abusando #1” , “Mal De Amor” and “Ya No Soy El Mismo” (a duet with El Bebeto). W Corona has also seen a remarkable increase in his streaming audience, with his monthly listeners on Spotify tripling in less than two months.
