Manuel Turizo just wants to dance. Months after the success and virality of his song “La Bachata,” the Colombian superstar is back with another Latin genre-themed single, “El Merengue.” And this time, he’s joined by DJ Marshmello.
“Merengue is a rhythm that all of us Latinos have within our DNA,” Turizo tells Rolling Stone. “We wanted to have the opportunity with Marshmello, such a global-recognized producer, to bring and propose another element of what he is known for in music and with other artists.”
This is the first time the EDM star and Turizo collaborate on a song, and the track came together during their first session together. “It was an amazing experience,” Marshmello tells Rolling Stone. “We had never met before and met that first day in the studio and ran with this idea. We finished the song that day front to back which was amazing, too.”
