Dillon Francis - Bababa (Vete Pa’Ya)
Today, platinum-selling artist, DJ, and producer Dillon Francis has released “BaBaBa (Vete Pa’Ya)” (feat. Young Ash), the third single off his forthcoming Spanish language studio album, due out later this year via his own IDGAFOS record label. Recorded in New York City with Bronx-based vocalist Young Ash, the track is available to stream and download now. Francis today also shared an accompanying music video for the track directed by Joel Strong. Watch the music video HERE.
Speaking on the track, Dillon says:
“For my album I really wanted to make a song reminiscent of ‘Que Que’, but an elevated version of it that was fun yet tough sounding. Young Ash’s flow on this is exactly that. It’s truly one of my favorite tracks from the project. Her voice is so strong and striking which makes for such an incredible gritty moombahton song”

Francis’ forthcoming album was executive produced by Toy Selectah and recorded in New York City, Miami, Dominican Republic, and Mexico City. Harkening back to his 2011 breakout Westside! EP, the album sees him revisit his early Latin influences and moombahton roots. “BaBaBa (Vete Pa’Ya)” (feat. Young Ash) follows the January release of “Ven” (feat. Arcángel & Quimico Ultra Mega) and February release of “We The Funk” (feat. Fuego).
IDGAFOS originated from Francis' 2011 song of the same name, which at the time, reflected the culmination of his signature musical productions. The term has since evolved into a rallying cry for all things Dillon Francis — his clothing line, epic live show, and now an outlet with which to release his new music. In his own words, IDGAFOS is "to be spirited and happy… to never give a fuck or shit about anything but remaining positive."
Francis recently collaborated with GRAMMY Award winning Puerto Rican rapper Residente on the track “Sexo” and starred in the song’s vibrant music video, which has amassed over 48 million views in less than a month. Watch it HERE.
Francis can currently be seen as a contestant on Comedy Central’s Reggie Watts-hosted “craziest game show ever” Taskmaster. Watch a trailer for the show HERE. Last month, it was also revealed that Comedy Central is developing Living The Dream, a new series from Francis and comedian/author Aaron Karo. In addition to serving as writer, actor, and executive producer for the show, Francis will also contribute original music.
Later this year, Francis will perform at numerous international music festivals and resume his residency at the Wynn Las Vegas for the third consecutive year. A complete list of upcoming live dates and ticket information can be found HERE.
