Danna Paola is reuniting with Morat for new music…
The 25-year-old Mexican actress/singer has joined voices once again with the Colombian quartet for their new song “Idiota.”
While not the first time they collaborate, this new song reinforces the bonds that unite Morat with Mexico.
The song, originally composed by Morat, together with Mauricio Rengifo and Andrés Torres, has a rhythmic pattern that resembles dembow, and closely represents the current Latin landscape.
That’s why they reeled in a female voice to complete and effectively narrate the story behind it. It’s a beautiful mix of vocals that perfectly give life to the story adding Danna’s pop fusions.
The lyrics talk about a love that is gone but you can’t forget, and you are trying to get back. It phrases the advice that you have probably given or gotten from your friends: “Ifyou love something, let it go. If it comes back to you, it’s yours forever. If it doesn’t, then it was never meant to be.”
The 34-year-old Dominican singer-songwriter has been appointed an ambassador for jewelry company Pandora.
Natti Natasha joins a roster of new endorsers that includes Sebastián Yatra, Danna Paola and Luísa Sonza.
The four Latin stars, each representing a different Latin American country, are now part of the Pandora squad via their 2021 campaign titled “Beats of Pandora.”
“I feel very proud to be an ambassador for Pandora because it’s a brand that motivates women to shine on their own by way of their style,” says Natti Natasha about the partnership.
Songstress Danna Paola represents Mexico, pop darling Yara represents Colombia and Sonza will serve as ambassador in Brazil.
“Through their voices, these stars express dreams, desires, stories and moments in a Latin woman’s life,” said Martín Pereyra, general manager of Pandora Latin America. “Pandora is part of this marvelous squad, giving voice to the passions of many women via our jewelry. We want more women in Latin America to be part of the Pandora world and thanks to music, we’re one step closer to those women.”
The 45-year-old Colombian superstar and his wife Karen Martínez are set to host a star-studded Christmas special that will stream only on Pantaya, according to Billboard.

The 25-year-old Mexican singer/actress has joined voices with two of Latin music’s hottest up-and-coming artists for her new single “Friend de Semana.”
In collaboration with Brazil’s Luisa Sonza and Spain’s Aitana, Danna Paola dropped the playful and catchy reggaeton-meets-cumbia track perfect for any friends with benefits.
“Quiero bailar contigo este fin de semana / I just wanna see you pa’ matar la’ gana’ / Ya sabes que te toca entrar por la ventana / Tú no te aguantas, tú no te aguantas,” the powerhouses sing in the flirtatious lyrics.
Directed by Charlie Nelson in different parts of a school, the music video offers up major Elitevibes.

The other artists participating in the Selena tribute include Karol G, Danna Paola, Ally Brooke and Greeicy.
“For me being part of this special was a real honor. She is a woman that after all these years, and everything that has happened, is a legend. I never hard the chance to meet her while she was here but she is an icon, an icon that lasts a lifetime,” Greeicy tells Billboard.
“How amazing is it that she has inspired so many with her music. It was very challenging for me to create the energy and portray her flavors of cumbia. It was a beautifully difficult challenge and it was very special because I learned from her music and I’m going to keep enjoying it with respect and I hope to honor her. To have the privilege to prepare this special with her brother, who knew her, lived with her, and spent her life with her, is very special. It was a hard challenge for me because I felt like I was speaking directly to her. The special is going to be really great, it was beautiful to be able to create it with him, he was wonderful to work with,” she adds.
