Jencarlos Canela’s new single, Bajito, featuring guest artist Ky-Mani Marley, explores a more urban side of the artist, mixing both reggae and tropical styles. This endeavor paid off for Canela, who has a single that is sexy, sultry, and dripping with heat.
The release lines up perfectly with his recent announcment that he will be starring in the new NBC series, Hot & Bothered, alongside the impressive Eva Longoria (who is also the executive producer of the show). The show, scheduled for release in early 2016, will follow the story of a telenovela superstar and her “lively family of cast and crew all competing to steal the spotlight.”
When asked, Canela said, “I’m in love with this project, it’s truly a dream come true when you can do what you love, alongside the people you admirer. Thank you to NBC and Eva Longoria for this incredible opportunity.”
This new opportunity is a big one for 26-year-old Canela, who already has more than 100 million views on VEVO and YouTube and more than eight million followers across all of his social media platforms.
