It’s easier than ever to enjoy music online—and that can be a problem when you’re trying to figure out where to start.
Thanks to services like Spotify, Pandora, and YouTube Music, on-demand streaming services with a monthly subscription cost have become the expectation for consumers. They allow artists like Puerto Rican singer-songwriter Farruko to share their music to a much broader audience. But there’s a lot of competition for app real estate on your phone.
Getting access to high-quality music can be expensive and difficult, and often comes with no small number of ads. A few streaming locations manage to compile most—if not all—of Farruko‘s music, however, and won’t break the bank with subscription fees.
Farruko, whose real name is Carlos Efrén Reyes Rosado, first found fame back in 2010 when he released his debut album El Talento Del Bloque. Over the past several years, Farruko has solidified his presence through a series of popular hits. “Passion Whine,” released in 2014, ranked among the top Latin songs for 26 consecutive weeks, and “6 AM” earned Farruko two Premios Juventud nominations. His collaborations with popular artists like Nicki Minaj and Travis Scott helped him reach global popularity in recent years. Thankfully, Farruko’s music is easily accessible on a number of excellent streaming platforms—here are your best bets.
