An ambitious, exciting, and infectious album, Cosculluela's El Principe debuts the reggaeton singer with a diverse set of sounds, going from the righteous hip-hop drama of "Warrior" to the Miami-flavored electro of "Yo No Se Bailar" without stumbling. Coscu's overflow of talent is at the heart of it all as the gifted Puerto Rican can spit busy rhymes at an alarming rate, but a well-chosen guest list featuring Ivy Queen, De la Ghetto, and others plus a slick and stylish set of backing tracks help to put the album over the top. That El Principe was one of those highly anticipated and frequently delayed debuts makes this success story all the sweeter. Check the singles "Na Na Nau" and "Prrrum" for some persuasive evidence. ~ David Jeffries
