If you’re looking for a fun jam to dance to this holiday season, you’re in luck!
Spanish DJ Juan Magán has a new hit on his hands with “Muñequita Linda,” and only ET has the exclusive lyric music video. The song, inspired by the classic merengue hit “Los Algodones” written by Antonio Lora, is a collaboration with DJ Deorro and DJ MAKJ, featuring rapper YFN Lucci.
"'Muñequita Linda' was born while shooting of a documentary in the Dominican Republic," Magán told ET. "We saw a man playing his accordion to the sound of 'Los Algodones,' originally played by Tatico Henriquez. After reviewing the footage with the team, I started to edit the audio from the accordion performance until transforming it into 'Muñequita Linda.'"
"When I first heard the vocal I knew this record was going to be special,” MAKJ told ET. “It was a refreshing experience to work with such talented artists to create something we can all be proud of.”
“This is another song with a Latin influence and a bit of a twist,” shared Deorro, who along with MAKJ helped produce the track. YFN Lucci , who raps to playful lyrics on the song, told ET that he's thankful for the opportunity to have worked with Magán and be able to connect to the Latin culture with “Muñequita Linda."
The video features vibrant cutouts and a nostalgic performance by Vinicio Franco, an iconic singer of the Dominican Republic.
