Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike Release Sultry Latin-Influenced Single “Mexico” with NE-YO and Danna Paola
Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike bring some sultry Latin influence again to their music on their new single, for which they teamed up with the iconic hitmaker NE-YO, Mexican juvenile phenomena Danna Paola, and enlisted a real Mexican mariachi band to infuse into “Mexico” an authentic Latin atmosphere. The track’s combination of stellar vocals by both NE-YO and Danna Paola and Dimitri & Mike‘s organic, groovy melodies that bridge the gap between dance and pop truly steal the show, just like the woman in the track’s lyrics. “Mexico” is far from the big-room house tracks that the duo is well known for, but it shows their production prowess through exploring other genres and follows the sonic style of their recent dance-pop hit “Fuego” with Kim Loaiza. Whether you’re hitting the beach for a vacation in Tulum or merely imagining it, “Mexico” will pull you into a tequila-fueled, steamy, and tropical getaway. This is not the first time NE-YO joins Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. In 2015 they teamed up to release “Higher Place,” which went Platinum and topped the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart.
