The Disney Pixar film “Coco” pays homage to Dia De Los Muertos and the tradition of honoring those who have passed on. The film centers around a young boy named Miguel who dreams of becoming a musician. In the film, he encounters his musical idol, Ernesto de la Cruz, the most famous Mexican musician of all time.

With music playing a huge role in the movie, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and her husband Robert Lopez, wrote an epic theme song for “Coco” titled “Remember Me.” The pair also wrote “Let It Go,” the Academy Award-winning song from the movie “Frozen.” Although the main version of the song is sung by Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt), there’s a version of the song featuring Miguel and Natalia Lafourcade.

The official music video was recently released and shows the two singers reminiscing about their deceased loved ones at their Dia De Los Muertos altars. They sing and dance with scenes from the movie intercut throughout the video. Miguel sings in English while Lafourcade sings in Spanish and it comes together beautifully.

Miguel shared a behind the scenes photo of the music video on Instagram.

Miguel expressed his gratitude at being included on the soundtrack calling the song “part of another timeless addition to the Disney/Pixar legacy.”

Lafourcade also posted to Instagram to thank those involved in the music video.

She called Miguel a great human being and artist. She also took a moment to reflect on how incredible it is to find new heartwarming adventures like this one.

Disney/ Pixar has also released a Spanish version of the song by Carlos Rivera.

The music video has racked up over 5 million views so far. The Spanish-language version of the film was released throughout Mexico in October. The English version released November 22nd in the U.S.

America Ferrera Celebrates 20th Anniversary Of Working On ‘Gotta Kick It Up’ With Sweet IG Post

It has been 20 years since America Ferrera’s dream of becoming an actor back true. She took to Instagram to reflect on the moment that her dream started to come true and it is a sweet reminder that anyone can chase their dreams.

America Ferrera shared a sweet post reflecting on the 20th anniversary of working on “Gotta Kick It Up!”

“Gotta Kick It Up!” was one of the earliest examples of Latino representation so many of us remember. The movie follows a school dance team trying to be the very best they could possibly be. The team was down on their luck but a new teacher introduces them to a different kind of music to get them going again.

After being introduced to Latin beats, the dance team is renewed. It taps into a cultural moment for the Latinas on the team and the authenticity of the music makes their performances some of the best.

While the movie meant so much to Latino children seeing their culture represented for the first time, the work was a major moment for Ferrera. In the Instagram post, she gushes over the celebrities she saw on the lot she was working on. Of course, anyone would be excited to see Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt hanging out. Yet, what stands out the most is Ferrera’s own excitement to realize that she can make money doing what she loves most.

“I wish I could go back and tell this little baby America that the next 20 years of her life will be filled with unbelievable opportunity to express her talent and plenty of challenges that will allow her to grow into a person, actress, producer, director, activist that she is very proud and grateful to be. We did it baby girl. I’m proud of us,” Ferrera reflects.

Alternative Boricua Singer iLe Dazzles in “No Es Importante” Music Video

Puerto Rican singer-songwriter iLe puts on a show in her music video for “No Es Importante.” The former Calle 13 member dances like there’s no tomorrow to her new single.

iLe was part of Calle 13 with her brothers.

Ileana Mercedes Cabra Joglar, who is better known as iLe, was in the Boricua group Calle 13 with her brothers, Residente and Visitante. Before their hiatus in 2015, the trio won an astonishing 21 Latin Grammy Awards. Calle 13 also has three Grammy Awards.

iLe collaborated with Residente and Bad Bunny on a musical takedown of Puerto Rico’s governor in 2019.

iLe went solo in 2016 with her debut album iLevitable, which garnered her the Latin Grammy Award for Best New Artist. She recently made waves around the world when she teamed up with Residente and fellow Boricua Bad Bunny for “Afilando Los Cuchillos.” The song was released in 2019 in response to Puerto Rico’s corrupt governor Ricardo Roselló. Following massive protests on the island, Roselló resigned from the job.

iLe moves on from a bad romance in “No Es Importante.”

“No Es Importante” marks iLe’s first release of 2021. In the tender tune, she sings about letting go of a toxic relationship. This is one of the most understated yet bluesy releases yet. Her epiphany that she deserves better is powerful.

“‘No Es Importante’ is a song that speaks from an intimate perspective,” iLe said in a statement. “When you need to make yourself realize that someone has been inhabiting your mind for too long and it’s time to let go.”

In the music video, she performs the heck out of the song.

In the music video for “No Es Importante,” iLe does karaoke to her own song in Puerto Rican restaurant. Even though no one is paying attention to her, she has the time of her life under a disco ball. When she disconnects the microphone at the end, it feels like she’s broken free of the romance.

“No Es Importante” previews iLe’s upcoming album. She won the Latin Grammy for Best Alternative Song last year thanks to her collaboration “En Cantos” with Natalia Lafourcade.
