Liam Payne is the latest to jump on the reggaeton bandwagon. The 24-year-old English singer experiments with the popular genre with “Familiar” which features J. Balvin. Having the “Mi Gente” hitmaker on board certainly gives Payne some Latin cred.
His solo career started off with a bang with “Strip That Down” which cracked the Billboard Hot 100 Top 10. However, his followups received only lukewarm responses. “Get Low” featuring Zedd, “Bedroom Floor” and “For You” featuring Rita Ora only peaked at No. 91, No. 98 and No. 76 respectively.
“Familiar” is catchy enough and sounds tailor-made for summer, but will it be a smash? Only time will tell. Give it a listen below.
