Juan Magán, Deorro, MAKJ and YFN Lucci will take all homes and dance floors hostage to rhythm of their new track this holiday season and without a doubt every chart and radio station in 2019. Their new single, “Muñequita Linda”, is a new hit from the pioneer and indisputable king of the Electro Latino genre.
“Muñequita Linda” is a song that presents the sounds of current EDM music and mixes them with a rendition of the merengue gem from the Dominican Republic, “Los Algodones”. The song brims with Latin flavor projecting rhythmic pulses accompanied by percussions and refreshing nuances in this classic merengue track backed by a talented section of wind instruments.
“Muñequita Linda was born in the shooting of a documentary in a typical place in the Dominican Republic. There, a man played his accordion to the sound of “Los Algodones”, originally from Tatico Henriquez, which at that time had no more significance but when reviewing the footage with the team and with an exploration environment, I started to edit the audio until transform it into a potential current global hit. Later in the process I was joined by the popular DJs / producers Deorro and MAKJ and the well-known rapper YFN Lucci.”- Juan Magan
Juan Magán lends his incomparable voice, which is paired with verses by American rapper YFN Lucci. Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, Lucci is one of the new voices in the genre whose second mixtape already earned him a single (“Key To The Streets” feat. Migos) on Billboards Top 100.
“It was really great working with Juan, MAKJ and YFN on this one. This is another song with a Latin influence and a bit of a twist. So happy with how it all came together and can’t wait for everyone to listen to it. Hope they enjoy it as much as I did.” – Deorro
