The holiday season will be upon us before you know it and many record labels are set to release new holiday tunes even before Halloween, including a new Christmas song from Texas singer Matthew Morales. “Venga Jugar Conmigo” was released today to all digital music platforms and it will definitely be a part of many holiday playlists this year.
When the duo were looking for a vocalist to sing the Spanish version, Davis said: “I know this guy from the university, I think he can sing it.” Morales, a vocal major at Texas A & M, was the one chosen.
The plan was to record a demo of the song and present it to popular artists in Tejano, Regional or Traditional genres. Davis was impressed with Morales’ performance in the studio this past summer, he entered the studio and sang the song twice. Two passes! He sounded fantastic.
Plans were made to release the song for Christmas with Morales as the artist. “Matthew made this song fun. And for his age, it sounds ‘classic’. I love your voice! He reminds me of another Texas artist, Freddy Fender. I think the song will be in many Spotify Playlists this Christmas.” said co-composer Mathis.
“Venga Jugar Conmigo” will premiere on Tejano Nation‘s Spotify Holiday Playlist on November 23. The official lyric video will launch on the Tejano Nation Facebook on November 1. It is available now at Spotify, Apple Music and iTunes.
