"Llorarás" (English: You Will Cry) is a song by Puerto Rico reggaetón duo R.K.M & Ken-Y from their first compilation album Masterpiece: Commemorative Edition (2007). It was released as the lead single from the album, which is a re-edition of their debut studio album Masterpiece (2006) when they were still known as Rakim & Ken-Y on June 5, 2007. The song's accompanying music video was released on September 4, 2007 in promotion of the single. The song departs from R.K.M & Ken-Y's musical style of reggaetón which characterized their previous album to explore Contemporary R&B. It reached the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart becoming the duo's last single to enter the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart, until "Te Regalo Amores" a year later. It received an award for "Urban Song of the Year" at the ASCAP Latin Music Awards of 2008. It was later included on the duo's first compilation album The Last Chapter (2010).[1]
