The 29-year-old Puerto Rican rrban singer has relaunched his latest single “Hola,” this time with an assist from Lenny Tavárez, Chencho Corleone and Juhn.
The original track belongs to Dalex’s debut album Climaxxx, released back in May. The lyrics tell the story of a boy who is reunited with a girl, and tries to seduce her as she did in the past.
