Tainy caps off a successful year with a new EP. The Puerto Rican hitmaker teamed up with the artists under his NEON16 collective to release Club Dieciséis today (Dec. 18).
Club Dieciséis marks Tainy’s second EP this year with NEON16 following last March’s NEON16 Tape: The Kids That Grew Up On Reggaeton. On Dieciséis, Tainy keeps the spotlight on the rising NEON16 talent like Kris Floyd, Dylan Fuentes, Alvaro Díaz and other special guests.
“For this particular EP, we at NEON16 came together and invited some friends to join and we created some incredible music to end what ended up being an amazing year,” Tainy said in a statement. “I can’t wait for our fans to get a feel of what it’s like to be part of the ‘club.’”
Tainy first previewed Club Dieciséis back in October with the release of “Falta,” featuring Boricua artist Kris Floyd and Dominican-American rapper DaniLeigh. Backed by Tainy’s ambient reggaetón beats, Floyd’s smooth flow meets DaniLeigh’s hypnotic voice as they yearn for each other.
Another standout on Club Dieciséis is “A Mi También” where the NEON16 gang teams up with Colombian singer-songwriter Feid. Tainy comes through with a twinkling soundtrack for Feid’s romantic reggaeton romp. Alvaro Díaz adds some edge to the track with his raw performance.
Club Dieciséis comes on the heels of Tainy’s big hits as an artist that includes “Agua” with J Balvin for the Sponge on the Run soundtrack and “Un Día (One Day)” with Balvin, Bad Bunny and Dua Lipa. The latter is nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance at next month’s Grammy Awards.
