EQTV Premiere - Watch The Future of Latin Pop Music Do His Thing. Watch the Brand New Video "En La Oscuridad" by Monti Montanez


by Raj Rudolph

I've been listening to this song for well over a year. It's been HARD not to talk about it. But the day has finally come. We have a new Ricky Martin in our lives people.

Just minutes ago, the future of Latin pop music (yes, you can quote me on that) Monti Montanez has put forth his huge Spanglish anthem "En La Oscuridad" out into the world and I think you'll agree with me after you watch this slice of Latin pop heaven - "En La Oscuridad" is more HOT than HOT.

I've played this song in my DJ sets alongside the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Dev and Far East Movement and every time I do so, I always get asked the same thing - who sings this?! My response is and was always the same...

"It's by the future of Latin pop music and his name is Monti Montanez."

Don't speak espaƱol? Don't worry, I live in Spain and don't speak Spanish either, but fret not my friends, "En La Oscuridad" also has a full english version too called "Lights Go Down" and it's just as HOT. I'm hoping that English version gets released with the Spanglish version too on the digipack, for if it's not, that would be a crime against pop.

Expect big things from Monti Montanez. He's every bit as lovely as his music is good. I'm hoping he takes over the world too and when he does, you can bet you'll say, "I heard it on EQ Music first."

Watch "Someone Like You" by Monti Montanez - Adele Cover


EQ fave Monti Montanez just released a gorgeous cover of the popular Adele song "Someone Like You" on YouTube which showcases his impeccable vocal stylings.  This cover is proof positive that Monti Montanez is one to look out for as we've been saying for months.

I can personally tell you that he has one of THE HOTTEST demos out there right now which is already good enough to be released as an album and it's only a matter of time before the right label scoops him up.  Monti is not rushing this project either as sometimes it takes awhile to be catapulted into the spotlight for artists who go about things the traditional way instead of this X-Factor world we live in.

Just watch and fall in love.  Trust me, this is only the beginning for Monti Montanez.

Monti Montanez Unveils New Track "Move To My Touch"


Oh wow!  I wasn't expecting this at all today, but hotly tipped new pop artist Monti Montanez just unveiled a new track which I haven't heard before called "Move To My Touch".  And to my surprise, it's pretty saucy, like as in Enrique Iglesias saucy...

Exhibit A:  "Pardon my french but I know you wanna fuck, but keep your eyes closed and move to my touch..."  Uh WOW. 

"Move To My Touch" really doesn't touch on how extremely amazing I really think Monti Montanez is as an artist though.  As he is slowly unveiling little bits of new tracks here and there, the demo album I have heard of his is out-of-this-world.  Pop fans will die and if the Monti Montanez album does actually see an 2011 release (it's being considered by a few of the big majors right now), it will probably top my end-of-year album chart.  Just saying. 

If you like Monti's "Move To My Touch", make sure you check out his teaser video too which was released awhile ago which contains an instrumental so fiece, even J-Lo would be jealous.
