A rising star in the resurgent world of reggaeton, XNilo is just about to release his debut single, but the buzz surrounding him is already reaching fever pitch. Just last month he appeared on "Save You (No Advice)" alongside UK producer Danny Avila and Chicago rapper Famous Dex, and he's currently on his way to Miami to work with Cardi B producer Tainy. On top of all of that, he's dropping his debut mixtape, From Nothing, later this month and we've got one of the tape's lead singles, "Que Paso".
A club-ready reggaeton bubbler with bags of club potential, "Que Paso" is XNilo's dissection of the effect that social media has had on our relationships. All of a sudden we've all gotten unreliable and pretty bad at maintaining these relationships, all thanks to the overwhelming nature of social media. Still, if we keep in mind the message of this upbeat thumper, then all may not be lost.
Speaking with Complex via email, XNilo told us: "In this age of social media where people are so connected, the irony is, they also find it very easy to disconnect. So you can meet someone on social media or a dating app, and think that you've found a really strong connection. Yet they can ghost after spending weeks chatting. In this song I'm trying relay that same feeling."
