Montiel said the idea to record the collaboration happened during a holiday party last year when La Calma frontman Leonel Correa was singing the song.
“Leonel was singing this song and he was like, ‘Man that would be such a cool song for us to do together’,” Montiel told Tejano Nation. “I knew the song, I wasn’t really familiar with it but Leonel kept singing it all night and he said, ‘Okay, now the do the harmony let’s see what it would sound like?’ Everybody was gathering around and I really enjoyed it and I figured why not? Let’s have some fun with it, get out of our box and do something a little unique.”
Montiel and Correa have been performing the collaboration at a few events and now plan to release the single and official music video this Friday, July 12.
