“Rulay en Guadalajara/Tengo dos mexicana’ y no quiero dejarla’/Me las vo’a llevar pa’ Santo Domingo/Pa’ que conozcan los teteo’ los domingo’,” raps El Alfa, shouting out Peso’s birthplace. (In English: “Chilling in Guadalajara/I have two Mexican girls who I do’t want to leave/I’ll bring them to Santo Domingo/So they can see the teteo on Sundays.”)
El Alfa celebrated the release on his Instagram, writing, “Long live our culture! Latinos are dominating the world.”
The new release comes a few days after El Alfa announced his La Leyenda del Dembow tour across the U.S. stopping in cities like Los Angeles, Boston, and Orlando starting in mid-October. The musician released singles “Rico Feo” with Flow 28 and Polojoa, along with a collab with his two kids on “Abloh.”
“I feel incredibly happy about the global power of dembow right now,” he told Rolling Stone in November. “No one can imagine what I’ve had to go through to get where we are today, what we’ve had to go through. But I think my career shows that humility and wisdom go a long way.”
