For Farruko, being nominated at the 2015 Latin Grammys for Best Urban Album with his 2014 production "Farruko Presenta: Los Menores" is a true honor yet a real surprise. "That album was like my experiment, it's not like my new album that I was already planning," he told Latin Times.

The Puerto Rican urban artist, who at 24 years old is considered one of the youngest in the biz, is proud to present his newest studio album "Visionary," which according to him is the most important release in his career. "I can identify a lot with the word because I've always had a vision of what I want and where I'm going," he said about his fifth studio production, adding that the word "visionary" was the perfect fit for the album's concept. "I think that in order to succeed, you must have a vision," he said.

The album, which dropped Friday on all digital platforms, showcases a new side of Farruko (born Carlos Efrén Reyes Rosado). Although he specifies that the album is entirely reggaeton, he noted that he wanted some of the rhythms to sound "futuristic." "You're going to hear another type of reggaeton. I worked with Pitbull, with Bob Marley's son, Ky-Mani," he said. "In fact, my new single 'Sunset' with Shaggy and Nicky Jam has another vibe," he added.

Speaking of, Farruko said the second single will be in the hands of his fans. "I hope that my fans approve this album and that many people enjoy it," he added. Following his promo tour, Farruko will perform and visit for the first time ever Argentina's "Luna Park" festival.
