Reinforcing the reality that making use of your gifts is indeed an upward spiral to the top of a staircase of success and significance, the boy born in Panama City, Panama is now a man not just rich in talent but also wealthy at heart who has taken the music odyssey toward the fullest experience of his highest greatness, step by step, magic, and beauty as obvious as him infusing his musical numbers and accelerating his fame all over having achieved over 1 million streams on Spotify alone up to this moment; J Rios is only getting started! Having grown up in Panama and living his other half-life in New York and Florida he has developed a diverse taste musically fusing reggae/dancehall, Hip hop, and reggaeton, and bachata, taking all these sounds to the next level. “Castillo Sagrado” is another unique smoothened out reggaeton and bachata tune which explains why he is a true master at leaping forward when it comes to exploring new ideas. Listening to its romanticized Latino lyrics feels like walking on the Spanish steps while sipping espresso and eating gelato.
This track is as fresh as daisy and its rich and pure rhythm feels like glamorously colored tulips. It is a romantic Latin ballad that is smooth, sensual, and rhythmic. Driven by the drums, guitars, and synths that teeter on the edge of hypnosis with all the elegant allure of the exceedingly phenomenal aesthetic lyricism on display, all these distinguish “Castillo Sagrado” from the pack of many Latin releases today. The sound carries a seductive and melodic blend of reggaeton and the eclectic bachata. The instrumentation is lively and is catapulted into your listening senses with a vibrant lead guitar riff. It also has a dazzling synth which meshes well with the dembow rhythm as the song progresses.
The sensual and seductive flirtation at the onset of the song with his whispering mellifluous vocals, “Every King Needs his queen” is reason enough to go gaga over the elite harmony. The exceptional sound and the sustained vocal delivery inspire one to place a few fingers against their chest right where their heart sits gushed by its sentimental lyrics, glee emanating from a listener as they unfold their arms from time to time to receive its immensely specific emotion. Kudos to J Rios for such an evocative Latino tune that has been made and delivered with exceptional genuineness!
