Feliz Navidad, de Puerto Rico!
In honor of the holiday season, we bring you a song from Puerto Rico - Feliz Navidad! No, no - this is not the Feliz Navidad you are familiar with - this is a new take with those classic lyrics.
This version is brought to you by Tito El Bambino - a Reggaeton singer from Puerto Rico. He rose to fame as Tito of the duo Héctor & Tito. Héctor y Tito released their first album in 1998. Together they became reggaeton stars releasing several successful albums and making appearances in several compilations, becoming one of the most sought-out duos in the genre. Both became the first reggeaton artists to sell out a massive concert in Puerto Rico, opening the path to other artists such as Tego Calderón, Daddy Yankee and others.
Then Tito went solo with his first album, Top of the Line. The album was a hit, reaching #1 in Puerto Rico, with collaboration from artists such as Daddy Yankee, Don Omar and Beenie Man. He continues to release albums , and in 2009, he released this song - Feliz Navidad. The video is shot in his native Puerto Rico in the streets of Old San Juan. We love the percussion section!!
