In the song “PAPÁS”, MAU AND RICKY mix their characteristic urban-pop style with influences from “punk rock” music, achieving a surprising sound, proving once again that they are one of the most innovative artists in the urban music scene, always marking trend. The music video was filmed by the acclaimed director Stillz, who was the creative head behind such groundbreaking videos as “Yo Perreo Sola” by Bad Bunny and others like the recent “Un día” by J.Balvin, Dua Lipa, Bad Bunny and Tainy. In the recording, RICKY plays the boyfriend who meets his girl’s parents for the first time and MAU the latter’s father and mother, which leads them to have diverse and funny confrontations between them.
The new single “PAPÁS” comes just a few days after having received two nominations for the “Premios Juventud 2020”, where they will have the opportunity to perform it live for the first time this coming August 13.
