Album Review: "Génesis" by Peso Pluma (9/10)

Prajin Records/Double D Records

Producer: Peso Pluma

Prior to the release of Génesis, Peso Pluma officially became one of the most streamed recording artists in Latin America.  The arrival of Peso Pluma’s third studio album came amid substantial anticipation from pundits and it did not disappoint. The 23-year-old wrote and produced a majority of the songs on a track list that featured a noteworthy duet between himself and Eladio Carrion called “77.” Peso Pluma brought several collaborators into the fold for this LP, but one of the most dynamic vocal performances came during his “PRC” duet with Natanael Cano.

Overall, Génesis is regional Mexican/trap corridos album that showcases Peso Pluma’s cultural roots, vocal versatility, raspy tone and multi-faceted songwriting skills—all of which were evident in the album’s final track, “Bye.”
