“It’s a progressive conjunto song and it’s a throwback to the 80s,” Daniels said. “It turned out really well and I’m excited about the video.”
Lopez talked about how the duo first met, “I was at a restaurant one night and was asked to sing with the band that was singing and Marcus heard me and here I am.”
“Quiero Saber” is Lopez’s debut into the Tejano music industry and
“He sent me the song and I absolutely loved it,” she said. “He asked if I would record it with him and I said ‘Yes’ and it went really good. We loved it so much that we decided that we would do a video.”
Daniels has been compared to the late “El Charro Negro” Bobby Butler and Dee Burleson of Culturas, two African-American vocalists that have had great success in the Tejano industry. He says, “These are great artists. I look up to them and thanks for the compliment.”
