The group had huge success with their “Aguita de Melon” collaboration featuring Oscar “Wowee” Montemayor of Los Musicales, David Lee Garza and Roel Martinez, a nominee for Song of the Year at the 2018 Tejano Music Awards.
“If you liked ‘Aguita de Melon’, you’re going to like this song,” said Chris Rodriguez of Tejano Highway 281 in a Facebook Live video. “It’s an old, old cumbia. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. A lot of people just collaborate just with somebody else and I figured I’m going to do something a little bit different, collaborate with two other bands.”
“Martha Alicia” features Los Chamacos members Roel Joslin on bajo, Edward “Chato” Ordonez on vocals, and accordionist Hugo Moreno. Atrapado vocalist Roberto “Beto” García and guitarist Guillermo “Memo” Correa added their talents to the collaboration.
No word on an official release date, but the song will be heating up radio station playlists this summer.
