Jesse & Joy “¿Con Quien Se Queda El Perro?” Album Review
During my time in Mexico, I was lucky enough to be exposed to all different types of música mexicana…from everything to Duranguense to Rock en Español. However, there are just a few artists that have stuck with me long after my return to the States…Jesse & Joy is one of those artistas. I’m not sure how I missed it, but I just discovered their most recent album “¿Con Quien Se Queda El Perro” and I’m happy to report this duo continues to be a Joy! (sorry…couldn’t help myself, that was too easy)
Before I even read up on which songs were the biggest hits on this album by the brother-sister duo, I immediately feel in love with the track “Corre.” I later found out this song is topping the Latin pop charts in the US and across Latin America…even hitting double platinum in Argentina. Adding to the success of the song, the video for “Corre” has surpassed 50 million views!
The second single off the album, “La De La Mala Suerte” is dominating the radio in Mexico and holds the #1 spot for 5 straight weeks…orale! The video for the song was also a pleasant surprise…the artistic, almost fashion-oriented treatment goes really well with the dramatic lyrics of the canción.
As expected, Jesse & Joy have been on the road non-stop promoting this new album…mainly across Latin America, but I was very excited to hear they are the first artists to be confirmed as performers at the 2012 Premios Juventud!
