Prince Royce and Gabito Ballesteros mix bachata and corridos tumbados in their collaboration ‘Cosas de la peda’

Music news

Prince Royce and Gabito Ballesteros have created a new genre: bachata tumbada. The American of Dominican origin and the Mexican have united the best of bachata and corridos lying in Peda thingsa collaboration with a lot of sensuality and a lot of rhythm.

Along with the song they have shared a video clip directed by Fernando Lugo that seems to place us in a universe where gender converges western and soap opera. A scene of Passion of Hawks in the Far West. Royce arrives on horseback in the middle of the night at the doors of the bar of a town in the middle of the desert, where both Ballesteros and different couples are already dancing to the rhythm of the record player.

On the walls of the premises, both artists appear on two posters of “Wanted: dead or alive” in exchange for a very generous reward, for “being armed and very dangerous.” The police have booked them and they are searching and arresting them for what we assume is to expose their prohibited steps. Finally, the sheriff finds them and they challenge each other to a duel to the death.

This Peda things will be included in Lost call, Prince Royce’s seventh studio album that will be released on February 16. It will be an album that has taken two years to prepare and that promises to have very personal content and stories. Not in vain, it will be made up of 23 songs, among which are also featurings as I’ll wait for you with María Becerra; I give you 20 thousand with The Alpha; If they ask you with Nicky Jam and Jay Wheeler.

For this album, the singer has deleted all his old Instagram posts to fill his feed with an aesthetic in red tones and an atmosphere illuminated by many neon lights.

“I feel very proud of this song because it is something I have wanted to do for a long time. I had already merged bachata with mariachi in Unconditional and also with banda music in a special version of I am the same and I wanted to do it again, this time with the corrido lying down. It’s a perfect fusion that I call bachata tumbada and I hope people love it as much as I do,” Royce declared.
