Panamanian reggaetonero Flex scored one of 2008's biggest Latin hit singles with "Te Quiero," the title track of his 2007 album of the same name. Driven by a light reggaeton rhythm track, a catchy melody, romantic sentiment, and tropical accents, the reggae panameño song certainly has the makings of a Latin hit circa 2008. Besides the title track, which kicks off the album, the second and third songs -- "Sin Tu Amor," a collaboration with reggaetonero Alex Pro; and "Desde Lejos" -- are others that truly stand out. The music remains interesting from a stylistic standpoint -- blending aspects of reggae and tropical music into otherwise fairly generic reggaeton backing tracks, and keeping the beats light and breezy rather than hard-hitting -- but Nigga's singing is generally fair at best.
