“I am half Chilean and was researching some songs just to get in touch with my Chilean roots and happened upon this song and just fell in love with it, and just wanted to put a Tejano/Tropical twist on it,” Torres told Tejano Nation.
The track spotlights some great musicians including Torres’ husband Robert Garza recording both trumpet parts of the song, Robert Gamez and Chris Esparza recorded the saxophone and trombone, respectively. The song is a collaboration that features a friend of Torres from her native Iowa, rapper El Ave Phenix, originally from the Dominican Republic.
“Y Qué Pasó” is available now at all digital music platforms and will be the lead single from Torres’ upcoming album scheduled to be released before the end of 2019.
