Banda MS has let the Dogg out…
The Mexican musical group, whose full name is Banda Sinaloense MS de Sergio Lizárraga, has joined voices with the one and only Snoop Dogg for the Mexican-folk-meets-G-funk single “Que Maldición.”
The highly anticipated collaboration has been on the radar ever since the West Coast icon posted a Banda MS song on his Instagramback in 2016.
The historical collaboration between the two powerhouses in their respective genres celebrates the union of two cultures. The melancholic song organically fuses banda with hip-hop, an unorthodox combination that works for the two.
The Banda MS/Snoop collaboration was proposed by Sergio Lizárraga, founder of Banda MS, who sent the song to Snoop’s team and “they loved it,” Lizárraga says. “They said, ‘Don’t change anything and we’ll work our magic.’ In less than a month, his team sent the song back with his part recorded, and the end result is excellent.”
“Que Maldición” was written by Pavel Ocampo, Calvin Broadus and Omar Tarazón.
Banda MS and Snoop Dogg had previously announced a joint summer concert prior to the coronavirus pandemic. No word on whether the concert will still move forward.
