In the era of pop-reggaeton and romantiqueo, raw Latin trap devotees can always count on Eladio Carrion to reinstate that straightforward, hard-edged wordplay that’s at times missing in el movimento’s mainstream presence.
Today, the swimmer-turned-comedian-turned-trapero premieres the video for “ELE UVE” remix at Remezcla. The song assembles an elite set of spitters including corridos tumbados stars Natanael Cano and Ovi, as well as fellow Puerto Rican rapper Noriel.
The new version of the track opens up with a crooning Cano and fresh verses by Ovi, Noriel, Cano and Eladio himself; the remix presents new attitudes and vigorous energy. Watch the video here:
This follows news of Carrion’s Latin Grammy nomination for Best Rap/Hip-Hop Song for his collaboration with Bad Bunny, “Kemba Walker.” Initially stepping into the scene with his debut video single “Me Enamoré de una Yal” in 2016, Carrion made waves last January with his debut album Sauce Boyz. The original video for “ELE UVE” was released in August and has garnered 10 million views since. The new visual was shot by director Jose Sagaro and produced by Film Heads and has a more party-like vibe.
Carrion’s delivery and style is emblematic of perfect taste equilibrium. As a result, he’s able to appeal to those who may want “musica pa las baby’s” or for straight explicit lyrics on sex, love, and drugs. “I like to trap sucio… dirty trap,” he shared with Remezcla last year.
