The sunny and lighthearted “Mientras Me Curo Del Cora (While My Heart Heals)” opens Karol G‘s highly anticipated new album Mañana Será Bonito, out today (Feb. 24).
Powered by a disarming, joyous whistle, her stripped-down vocals take center stage in this opening track. “Give me time/ I’m not at my best moment, but I’ll get better little by little/ Today, I’m down but tomorrow will be prettier,” she sings. Time was what Karol G needed to heal from heartbreak. Now, she’s entered a new era that’s marked by a renewed sense of freedom and empowerment.
“Mientras Me Curo” serves as Karol’s introduction to the set, but don’t be tricked by its simplicity in terms of production. In fact, the rest of the tracks on the album are quite the opposite — packed with fast-paced verses, raw and sensual lyrics with dembow, regional Mexican and reggaetón powering the beats. Along the way, she tapped a few fellow hitmakers for star-studded collaborations, including Shakira on “TQG,” “Dañamos La Amistad” with Sech and “Pero Tú” with Quevedo. The set also includes previously released collaborations with Romeo Santos (“X Si Volvemos), Ovy on the Drums (“Cairo”) and Maldy (“Gatubela”).
The highly awaited collab with Shak finds the two Colombianas in a sultry music video, confirming once more that there’s no messing with them (and their hearts). Meanwhile, on the simmering reggaetón track “Pero Tú,” the Medellín singer continues to cultivate the allusions of passion, set against pensive piano chords and an irresistible rhythm. This time, Karol is armed with a hypnotic coo like that of a siren, which captures Quevedo as a love interest.
Mañana Será Bonito is Karol’s fourth studio album, and it follows her 2021 Grammy-nominated KG0516, which scored Karol her first No. 1 on Billboard‘s Top Latin Albums. The set earned the biggest week for a Latin album by a woman since Shakira‘s 2017 El Dorado.
