In the late '90s, Enrique Iglesias and Ricky Martin made it clear that there's nothing hotter than a sexy Latino dude crooning in Spanish. Now, the Baja, California natives of Reik have only contributed to the Latino heartthrob image with their good looks and a Latin Grammy nomination for “Best New Artist.” Front man Jesus Alberto Navarro Rosas and back up vocalist Julio Ramirez Eguia will melt you with their silky smooth voices and delicious pop riffs that make me wish they were serenading me right now. After six years of releasing multiple Mexican chart toppers, these guys are due for a US breakthrough. Watch out for panty-dropper “Ahora Sin Ti” and more upbeat, but equally sexy, “Illusionado.” Following the last juicy twang of Gilberto Marin’s guitar, these fellas are sure to have ladies (and a few men) stalking them all the way back to Seatac. Caliente. All ages.
