The high-energy cumbia band from Austin, Texas teams with the 2015 Tejano Idol winner for a bilingual cumbia remake of two hip hop songs, “Me and My Girlfriend,” the 1996 hit song from Tupac, and “Bonnie & Clyde 03” from Jay-Z featuring Beyonce, released in 2002.
“Me & My Girlfriend” is the lead single from the group’s upcoming full-length album, first since the release of “La Fiesta” in 2014. The track was produced by Cinco Doce accordion/keys player Cisco Aquirre and written by his brother, frontman Buck Aguirre. It was engineered by Omar Vallejo and Grammy Award winner Randy Caballero at the astounding 512 Studios, an Austin Music Award winner for Best Studio.
“Monica is a great fit for the song and she is an extremely talented singer,” said Brian Alejandro, lead vocalist of Cinco Doce. “She has capabilities that can separate her from other artist creating more of an art form for herself.”.
Cinco Doce is excited to be recording again.
“A lot of people have been asking us when are we going to be releasing new music again, ” said Moya, “We feel like we get great support from fans of our music in Tejano and all around the world and feel like if we cannot perform in front of all of them, we can at least continue to make Cinco Doce music for everyone to enjoy.”
“We have a new show that we are working on and will be ready for appearances and shows this year,” Moya added. “We created a brand and we are looking forward to the continuation of sharing it with everyone.”
“Me & My Girlfriend” will be available soon at all digital music platforms.
