Multi-platinum singer-songwriter and two-time Latin GRAMMY award winner, Farruko, releases his highly anticipated album LA 167.
The project finds the global chart-topping reggaetonero further defying industry standards — creating an eclectic ambiance fit for various subcultures and genres. Intentionally crafted to honor the intersections of his hometown of Bayamon and the legacy of his late grandfather, the album displays a Farruko that is nostalgic, festive, vulnerable, and proud.
“[LA 167] is the record, this is the moment, this is the story. It’s an act that will mark my career, my family and it will ultimately mark who I am as a person,” Farruko said about the album.
Named after the principal highway that passes through his hometown of Bayamon, Puerto Rico, the album is a special, sentimental ode to the highway and a particular gasoline station that once belonged to his late grandfather. With LA 167, Farruko reclaims his grandfather’s legacy, while simultaneously proving his ability to reach the masses with homegrown messages and diverse, diasporic instrumental selections.
To achieve this, he revisited the most nostalgic perreo beats, incorporated the “pilita” or EDM trends popularized in the neighboring country of the Dominican Republic, and his traditional love for Jamaica’s reggae—all while remaining loyal to his grittier influences like his trap, drill, and reggaeton essence.
