AllMusic Review by

A.B. Quintanilla is the brother of crossover Tejano legend Selena, and the founder of the groundbreaking group Los Kumbia Kings. After the Kings disbanded, Quintanilla began the Kumbia All Starz, and the group’s second album, Planeta Kumbia, pushes the group’s Latin pop aesthetic even further. Elements of Tejano, cumbia, reggaeton, adult contemporary, and mainstream Latin pop all come into play. The music is heavily synthesized and beat-driven, with an emphasis on catchy hooks in every tune. A welcome addition to Selena and Quintanilla’s legacy, Planeta Kumbia is a sure-fire bet for fans of contemporary Latin pop.
