SAN ANTONIO, TX — The hit web show “Bean & Chisme” is celebrating the return of the beloved Fiesta season in San Antonio with an original song titled “Hoodrat Cumbia.” The song will officially release on Tuesday, June 15, 2021 and the music video will premiere on Thursday, June 17, 2021.
The song, written by “Bean & Chisme” hosts Samantha Najera and Nina Duran, had been produced and ready to go since last year, but with the cancellation of Fiesta, they decided to hold off and make the release extra special this year.
“After such a saddening year, we feel the song is just what we all need to kick things off for Fiesta. We are also very excited to have something that is original yet has the vibes of cumbia, freestyle, and hip-hop,” says Duran. “We hope this song brings back the Fiesta magic we all love. I want this song to be played at every party, quince, wedding, you name it,” stated Najera.
It’s almost been one year since the dynamic duo has had a live show and the music video, being released on the day of Fiesta kick-off on June 17, will be the start of much more content to come leading to Season 3 of the show in late summer.
The show started as a live, unfiltered, web series on Facebook and quickly gained followers once the co-hosted duo started producing spin-off videos such as “Hoodrats at Fiesta” and “The Real Hoodrats of San Antonio.”
Creators Najera and Duran are now on a mission to take the show to a national audience while making an impact in the Hispanic community. The show has grown into a brand with a merchandise line and thousands of followers from South Texas to New York; and even overseas – captivating a wide audience beyond San Antonio.
The duo seeks to educate and entertain the Hispanic community by speaking about topics that are often taboo.
“We like to make fun of our people for having plate sales for funerals, or not voting, or not having it together, but by using that humor we hope the comedy sheds light on the reality; therefore starting the conversation influencing change,” stated Najera.
With hopes of going national, the duo is working hard to continue producing fun and engaging content that appeals to all, not just the local Hispanic audience.
The “Hoodrat Cumbia” will officially release on Tuesday, June 15 and be available on iTunes, Spotify, Pandora, TikTok and more. The official music video will premiere the same day on their social media platforms with a star-studded line up of local Hispanic influencers. The official dance was also created to engage others to participate and they will soon launch the #HoodratCumbiaChallenge on TikTok.
