The collaboration, produced by Gabriel Zavala, is a cumbia version of the worldwide 2017 smash it from Puerto Rican singer and songwriter Luis Fonsi and pop star Demi Lovato.
Montiel said the idea to record the collaboration happened during a holiday party last year when La Calma frontman Leonel Correa was performing 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 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.”
“Échame La Culpa” was released to all digital music platforms on Friday (July 12).
