Here’s Your First Listen To The DJ Kass And Pitbull ‘Scooby Doo Pa Pa’ Remix Dropping Tomorrow

When “Scooby Doo Pa Pa” first hit the airwaves, fans lost their minds and it wasn’t long until the song was viral. Seriously. So many people were obsessing over this song and it was lowkey magical. A lot of the craze was around videos different internet personalities created for the song, including Lele Pons. Before we knew it, the song was everywhere and there was nothing you could, or wanted, to do about it.

Mitú is happy to join DJ Kass and Pitbull for the world premiere of the “Scooby Doo Pa Pa” remix.

The song sparked a wave of dance challenges. There is even a Zumba dance for the song out there if that is your thing. Now, we have a brand new remix with the one and only Mr. Worldwide and it is premiering exclusively on we are mitú. DJ Kass, whose real name is Luis Rosa, will definitely become a household name after the success of “Scooby Doo Pa Pa.”

Rosa says that he is genuinely surprised that the song became such a hit.

“I did not expect this at all, till this day I still find myself surprised like, ‘Wow,'” Rosa tells mitú. “I cannot believe something that was made for pure comedy had the ability to be this big and the best part is that it all happened organically.”

DJ Kass and his team knew that Pitbull was the perfect artist for the collaboration.

“My management team had suggested a few Latin artists, then Marcus at [my label] eOne told my management [team] that he thought he could get Pitbull in the remix,” Rosa says. “We didn’t hesitate a second on that because, come on, it’s Pitbull, aka Mr. 305, and I’m glad we went in that direction.”

That’s what you call making your dreams come true. Congratulations, DJ Kass!

Check out the music video for the original song below.

Rosa remains grateful and surprised that “Scooby Doo Pa Pa” continues to reach more and more people in the world.

“It feels great,” Rosa says about the song’s ever-growing popularity. “I feel humbled, proud, still can’t believe it in many ways how it still keeps climbing. It’s now reaching Korea and Japan which are hard markets to tap into from what I understand.”

Kali Uchis’ “Telepatía” is Becoming a Global Hit Thanks to TikTok

Through the power of TikTok, telepatia kali uchis is going to the top. The Colombian-American singer is sitting comfortably in the top 10 of Spotify’s Top 200 chart in the U.S. thanks to a TikTok trend.

This isn’t the first time that TikTok brought new fame to songs.

TikTok has proven to be quite the catalyst for today’s top hits. The app assisted in getting Olivia Rodrigo’s “drivers license” to the top of Billboard Hot 100 chart, where it remains. TikTok also reinvigorated interest in Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” last year thanks to Doggface’s viral video. Now Uchis is getting her long overdue shine with “Telepatía.”

“Telepatía” is becoming a global hit thanks to the same phenomenon.

At No. 7 on the Spotify U.S. chart, “Telepatía” is the highest-charting Latin song in the country. Bad Bunny’s “Dákiti” with Jhay Cortez is the next closest Latin song at No. 14. “Telepatía” is also making waves across the globe where the song is charting on Spotify’s Viral Charts in 66 countries and in the Top Songs Charts of 32 countries.

There’s also plenty of “Telepatía” memes.

Uchis is turning the viral song’s success into strong sales and streaming. On this week’s Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart, “Telepatía” debuts at No. 10, marking her first top 10 hit on the chart. There are also memes circulating on other social media apps that are contributing to the song’s virality.

“Telepatía” is one of the key cuts on Uchis’ debut Latin album, Sin Miedo (del Amor y Otros Demonios). It’s the best example of her translating that alternative soul music that she’s known for into Spanish. The song is notably in Spanglish as Uchis sings about keeping a love connection alive from a distance. It’s timely considering this era of social distancing that we’re in during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Uchis is currently nominated for a Grammy Award. She’s up for Best Dance Recording for her feature on Kaytranada’s “10%” song.

Kehlani Dresses as Both Prom King and Queen on Cover of ‘Playboy’, Talks Feeling Comfortable in Both Gender Roles

Kehlani Dresses as Both Prom King and Queen on Cover of ‘Playboy’, Talks Feeling Comfortable in Both Gender Roles

Kehlani has long been open about the fluid nature of her gender expression. That’s why it’s exciting that the R&B star is experimenting with different facets of her personality on the most recent cover of Playboy.

In a bold move, Kehlani appears on Playboy‘s latest cover dressed in both (traditionally) women and (traditionally) men’s clothing.

And as if one Kehlani isn’t exciting enough, the magazine cover treats us to two versions of this Oakland native. On the left side of the magazine, Kehlani is dressed up as a Prom Queen, complete with a resplendent gown and a tiara. On the cover’s right side, Kehlani is dressed in Prom King drag: her tie undone, her collar open, her crown askew.

She shared the picture to her personal Instagram page with the cheeky caption: “I always wanted to date me.”

In the accompanying interview, Kehlani talks about gender identity and expression, motherhood, and owning her sexuality.

When Kehlani was asked how she defines masculinity and femininity, Kehlani got refreshingly candid. “I’ve discovered that I’ve run from a lot of femininity,” she admitted. “I was way more comfortable in a more masculine space. I feel more masculine when I am in my stillness and I’m grounded in a quiet, contemplative mode.”

She then explained that she feels “most feminine” when she’s “being the mother of my house.” (Kehlani had a baby girl named Adeya Nomi in 2019). She also explained that she “feels her femininity” when she ‘s indulging in self-care, like soaking in a flower-filled bath, or doing a hair mask.

“My femininity makes me feel soft and gentle and tender and careful in a different way than my masculinity makes me feel,” she said. “I’m trying not to let it fall into the gender norms of feminine and masculine, but for me it does a tiny bit. But I also am very fluid in both of those settings.”

Kehlani has always been open about her fluid sexuality and gender identity.

In 2018, she tweeted: “Not bi, not straight. I’m attracted to women, men, REALLY attracted to queer men, non-binary people, intersex people, trans people”.

But of course, haters on the internet accused her of “queer-baiting”–that is, pretending she’s queer to get more LGBT fans and attract attention. In an interview with The Guardian last year, she revealed why the accusation frustrates her.

“I’ve had girlfriends in front of people’s faces, right under their noses, and they weren’t famous and so nobody cared to make it public,” she said. “So they automatically assume that I must like men more than women.”
