It's not like he was really gone for eight years, but while all those singles, guest shots, and Hollywood appearances in a few Fast and Furious films were flying about, reggaeton originator Tego Calderón did forget to drop an album. A suitable mix of gritty and glitzy, his 2015 effort El Que Sabe, Sabe rights that wrong while splitting the difference between the expected excellence (lead single "Dando Break" is everything right about the old-school) and some startling new sounds (check the devastating title cut or Tego's lower and colder vocal delivery throughout). The guest list is kept minimal with Kany García and Don Omar filling it in total, while Wisin & Yandel regular Nesty handles the album's production. ~ David Jeffries
