“Porque Tu” is the highly-anticipated new single from Stevie D & The All-Star Cast which was released to Tejano radio last week (Nov. 9).


“Porque Tu” was written by Stevie D and Jay Alaniz. Stevie D also produced the track with Freddie Martinez Jr. at the famous Legends Sound Studios in Corpus Christi, Texas, featuring an “all-star cast” of top-tier musicians including session drummer and group member Aaron Holler, session accordionist Lalo Mora, studio engineer Mariano Herrera on guitar, bass, keyboards, and percussion, and the unmistakable smooth vocals of Latin Grammy winner Rebecca Valadez.

“We found a hidden gem here,” Stevie D said of Valadez in an interview with The AC Cruz Podcast. “She’s not a backup vocalist for this band, she’s a featured artist.”

The romantic cumbia with an irresistibly catchy melody and sing-song chorus feature lyrics that speak about the pain of a broken relationship and the struggle to rebuild it all for love, a theme that resonates with everyone.

“Rebecca and I sing to each other. It’s not really a duet but she’s got her own part,” added Stevie D. “It’s a little bit about traicione amor (betrayed love). It’s a badass cumbia. I’m not saying that because I wrote it but because the arrangement came in and it all just gelled.”

“Porque Tu” will officially be released to all digital music platforms on Friday, November 18.
