Reggaeton Wednesdays continue at eMusic with "Pa La Calle", a single from the Miami duo SoFla Kingz. Alex "Bombillo" Diaz has a manic, freaked-out vocal delivery, and he drenches every syllable with unhinged intensity. But "Pa La Calle"'s greatest strength is its unpredictability; after a standard reggaeton verse the song downshifts hard, turning briefly into a giddy, percolating soca track. SoFla Kingz are worthy of their building buzz, a musical partnership that's both fun and inventive.
