ImageI don’t know how I feel about child entertainers. Let’s face it they’re, more often than not, pushed into show biz by their parents and their career and childhood are both finished before they know it. Hip-hop has done it (Chi Ali, Bow Wow, Kris Kross) and now reggaeton is following suit with seven-year-old Migueltio.

The kid has an obvious talent for ‘Ton and is being mentored by Daddy Yankee, who signed the little boricua to his El Cartel Records imprint. Miguelito’s “Montalo” song is getting some play throughout the States and has many times opened up for El Cangri. His debut album, Mas Grande Que Ti, was engineered by DJ Memo and features Lennox, Tingui and Gold 2. It’s out on Dec. 19. But still the question remains: should he have waited until he was a teen? Whatever the case, God bless. He’s got two things going for him: a growing talent and Daddy Yankee.

Now, remember when earlier this week when I told y’all about Beyoncé making a Spanish version of “Irreplaceable?" well, word is she’s collaborating with Shakira to make beautiful music. The song is called "Beautiful Liar" and that’s all we got so far. Shak had these to say on about the collabo: “Yes, we’re working on a song she wrote and hopefully we’ll be able to record. I’m really excited because she’s an artist I respect and love very much. For her to share a song that she wrote me halaga mucho, she’s a woman of a lot of sentiments.”
