Farruko Shares “Embalao,” His First New Video of 2022
Featuring White Star and Produced by J. Cross, “Embalao” is a Highlight from LA 167, Farruko’s Acclaimed 2021 Album
Incorporating a vast tapestry of influences into his singular blend, Farruko is one of the most versatile and successful artists in Latin music today. Today, the global superstar shares a new video for “Embalao,” a club-ready house track from his LA 167 album. With a title that alludes to maintaining a perfect buzz, “Embalao” is an uptempo party anthem, following in the footsteps of his mega-hit “PEPAS,” aided by a guest verse from White Star and J. Cross’s trance-y production. Directed by FramexGod, the video deposits Farruko and White Star in the forested wilderness, the two artists rocking their finest winter attire as they rock out to the song and race ATVs. The video intercuts the two artists’ ATV adventure with clips of Farruko performing to enthusiastic sold out crowds.
“Embalao” is the latest in a long line of high quality visuals from LA 167, immediately following “La Benidicón,” an iconic and festive salsa. Few artists of any genre are able to show such range with two consecutive video releases, a testament to the confidence and versatility displayed throughout the album. The album was one of Farruko’s most successful albums to date, and one of the blockbuster Latin releases of 2021, boasting singles like “PEPAS” (#25 peak on the Billboard Hot 100), “La Tóxica” (#95 peak on the Hot 100), and “El Incomprendido.” Farruko’s LA 167 was included in The New York Times “Best Albums of 2021” list and “PEPAS” was named by Time Magazine as the number 1 song of 2021, hailed by NPR as one of the 100 Best Songs of 2021, and recognized by Billboard in the Top Ten Hot Latin Songs of 2021.
Recently, Farruko wrapped up the first leg of his first US Arena tour with 8 sold out shows which included stops in California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and Texas. Farruko delivered an electrifying show night after night, giving fans an unforgettable experience and demonstrating why he is one of the most celebrated artists of our time. In February 2022, Farruko will kick off the second leg of his tour starting at his nativo Puerto Rico. He hit a career milestone and made history by selling out Puerto Rico’s renowned Coliseo arena during a presale for 2 nights for his upcoming homecoming shows of “LA 167 Tour” on February 4 and 5th, 2022.

“After his 2017 single ‘Krippy Kush’ became the first Latin trap song to reach the Hot 100 singles chart, Farruko did the unexpected by shifting his next album away from the burgeoning format and returning to urbano’s reggae roots. Eschewing tough rap braggadocio in favor of tuff gong vibrations, Gangalee makes Carribbean connections via cuts like the breezy ‘Quédate’ and the throwback ‘Pórtate Mal.'” – Rolling Stone’s Best Latin Albums of 2019 (Gangalee)
“Whether or not you realize it, this Puerto Rican rapper is one of the most popular artists in America right now.” – Vice
“Luckily, a few artists have taken on the task of ensuring [reggaeton’s] origins aren’t suppressed or forgotten. Farruko is one of the few at the forefront, doing so in the most overt fashion…Farruko, who has over a decade of experience in the music industry, has been a part of that time of reinvention for reggaeton, trap en español, and now reggae…Taking on the advice of the wise, Farruko more often than not says the least but does the most, pouring out his thoughts, emotions and vision for the future of Latin music into extended albums and tracks.” – Remezcla
