Latin Heartthrob Chayanne's 10 Momentos Mas Calientes!
Let's start this off with the album cover, above, off his 2005 release, Desde Siempre. This here is exactly what we're talking about. This is textbook Chayanne ay papi-dom. Check those sculpted sideburns, that come hither look ... that closely-cropped chest hair and the suggestively placed hand.
Now, let's check out a video that's just too good to pass up. "No Te Preocupes Por Mi," off Cautivo, which also released in 2005. In this vid, he plays Ricky Ricardo, starring in a movie as the Latino James Bond. Or at least, we think he's playing Ricky Ricardo, starring in a movie as the Latino James Bond.
Chayanne isn't just a pretty face or a world renowned pop star, though. As you may have gleaned from the video above, he's also a thespian. Let this clip from 1998's Dance With Me serve as another testament. In this flick, he starred alongside diva and beauty queen Vanessa Williams. They don't actually dance together in this one, but they do share a look hotter than any amount of lambada. Which, as we all know, is the forbidden dance.
Oh no, this isn't Prince. It's actually Chayanne again, this time in a shot from his 2008 cover
1) The now defunct Spanish version of this mag seldom did male covers, so it was an honor to get one.
2) There's kind of like a whole bondage thing going on with that blindfold.
3) Prince is pretty effin' hot himself, in a scrawny, twerpy, Revolution-running kind of way, no?
Low and behold, now here's another vid! This is Chayanne's latest, "Tu Boca," off his new record, No Hay Imposibles. He shows yet again why he's famous for shaking his moneymaker on this one ...but not much else. The video's admittedly pretty plain, and its inclusion pretty much strictly gratuitous booty shaking. But he does shake it alongside a couple of stone cold foxes.
And, just to close things out, we leave you with one more video. This one comes off his next album after Cautivo, the 2007 release Mi Tiempo. The video takes place following some sort of disaster, but Chayanne's too focused on singing about his super-hot honey to worry about that (she finds him later, BTW). We can hardly blame him. And yes, that's a sleevless hoodie he's wearing. And yes, he's totally rocking it.
LEGAL DISCLAIMER: The above is a work of satire and in no way shape or form reflects the views or opinions of Crossfade, Miami New Times, or even this writer, who most assuredly does not have a man crush on Chayanne. Although, the right night...right mood...just the right number of mai tais...who knows? Just sayin'.
...oh, and he's playing AAA tomorrow night at 8pm. Tickets run $60 to $130.
