It is time for me to nominate a song for this year’s summer hit. Gente De Zona and Descemer Bueno have written and recorded the song earlier this year in Cuba, but it was only after their collaboration with Spanish singer-songwriter Enrique Iglesias when the song rocketed into a commercial success. Bailando has all the ingredients to become a summer smash, such as a swinging beat, Spanish guitar, catchy melody and lyrics full of mentions of party, dancing and sex.
Different versions of the song have been released, but I would like to share the ‘Spanglish’ version featuring Sean Paul. The video was filmed in Santa Domingo and lives up to the song’s name with a convincing choreography of sensual flamenco girls, street dancers and soccer.
