Rising singer Devin Banda has added a new twist to a favorite Tejano classic from legendary band The Latin Breed with her version of “La Tejana Enamorada”.

The 24-year-old singer, who was nominated for Best New Female Artist at the 2018 Tejano Music Awards, spoke about her latest single in a Facebook Live video saying “We’re really, really excited about it. It was a song that meant a lot for me and for everyone that was involved in the process of making this song.”

“It was something very, very meaningful in the sense of it was a new artist and a younger generation doing a song that was created in the ’50s,” she added. “We were very, very honored in the fact that we were able to do that. It was a lot, a lot of fun. We are in love with it, I hope ya’ll love it too.”

The song was originally done by Latin Breed in the 1970s and the legendary band is celebrating their 50th anniversary this year.

Banda’s version was produced by Severo “Sevy” Contreras and features a couple of Latin Breed members on the production, Frank Perez and Julian Castillo. Perez was part of the orchestration with Al Gomez, who added their trumpet skills to the track. The song features a collaboration of great musicians including Grammy winner Rick Fuentes on the accordion, Castillo on keyboards, bassist Steve Roth, guitarist Steve Alvarez, drummer Joey Sanchez, and Ernie Cancino on tenor and alto sax.

No word on the official digital release for “La Tejana Enamorada”, but it will definitely be heating up radio station playlists this summer.
