De La Ghetto is joining voices with Dillon Francis…
The Puerto Rican and Dominican American singer and songwriter, whose real name is Rafael Castillo, appears on the cross-genre electronic producer and DJ’s bilingual, Spanish-heavy full album.
Francis’ Wut Wutfeatures 11 tracks of Latin in a spectrum of pop palettes, and much like an actual trip to Latin America, it highlights the diversity of the culture within a variety of styles and feelings sure to entertain fans of dance-pop and Latin music alike.
It opens with self-awareness on previously-released single “White Boi.” The song features Colombia’s Lao Ratalking about how she fell in love for this Caucasian dude, and Francis hopes the Spanish-speaking masses will follow suit with the rest of his release.
It continues with a mysterious big of magic on “Esta Noche” with Ximena Sariñana. Francis then puts extra funk on the R&B groove of “No Pare” feat. Yashua from the Dominican Republic, turns up the tropical heat on “Sexo” with Residente and iLe, and hits electric urban notes on “Never Let You Go” that’ll have you calling De La Ghetto Puerto Rico’s answer to The Weeknd.
If you’re looking for something romantic, give “We The Funk” with Fuego a spin. If you want wild-n-crazy classic Francis, head straight to “Look At That Butt” with Jarina De Marco. “Cuando” with noted madman Happy Colors is equally bold with banging bass lines. Things stay heavy with “Ven” feat. Arcángel and Quimico Ultra Mega, get twisted on booty banger “BaBaBa” with Young Ash, and finishes with quite the flourish on horn-heavy “Get It Get It.”
It’s a great mix of Francis’ dance-pop style and Latin rhythms. It’s multi-lingual and certainly influenced by a variety of tempos and feels. It definitely has more of a central character than its predecessor Money Sucks, Friends Rule, which the producer himself admitted was kind of all over the place. Wut Wut, in that way, it’s very much a matured sound for the producer, but don’t worry, Francis fans. Mostly, it’s just fun.
