Showtek is making their highly-anticipated return to the release radar with ‘Una Mamacita’, a new collaborative Latin-inspired track featuring the vocal talents of Belinda and Nacho. The new single from the esteemed brother DJ duo follows their April-released tune ‘The Weekend’ with Eva Shaw. Out now via Universal Music, ‘Una Mamacita’ is available to listen to across all streaming platforms.
The fun, energetic track kicks off with soft, sensual Spanish lyrics. The first half of the single features a harmonious flowing vocal, courtesy of highly-renowned Mexican singer/songwriter Belinda. Famed Venezuelan singer Nacho’s rich, textured voice quickly makes an entrance, flawlessly complementing Belinda’s melodious sonic performance. The latest to come from Showtek is audibly a slight pivot from the norm for the pair. Exchanging hefty bass drops for more refined pop-leaning electronic dance music, this song is an exciting precedent for what’s to come musically from the duo in the near future.
‘The song has been a really fun process. We all met for the first time in the studio in Miami and were supposed to do a 3 hour session but we ended up recording until 5 in the morning. When we left the studio we felt we had a smash record, you can really hear the good vibes in the song when you listen to it. As Showtek we always try to surprise people with what we do and we love the outcome of this song’ – Showtek
