Elvis Crespo Teamed Up With Ilegales Again To Give His Fans Another Dance Song To Repeat All Summer Long

Elvis Crespo surprised his fans with a major plot twist when he recently entered the world of EDM and fusing it with his signature música tropical.

After the success, and Latin Billboard award, for his song “Bailar” with Deorro, Crespo is giving his fans another EDM party song with “Guayo.” mitú spoke with Crespo about this new move into the EDM world… And of course, we couldn’t pass up the chance to talk about one of his first smash hits – “Suavemente.”

After the success of his first EDM fused song, “Bailar,” Elvis Crespo is back with a second EDM tune with “Guayo.” He calls this fusion the new Elvis Crespo sound.


“We saw the success of last year’s song ‘Bailar‘ with Deorro and how that song brought the mix of the tropical sound and the EDM sound and we captured a new audience,” Crespo told mitú. “When we were in the studio to create ‘Guayo,’ we wanted to find that color, that sound – that new Elvis Crespo sound. We updated my sound and that’s the reason that we are very happy with the release and this new sound.”

You might remember Crespo as the genius behind the song of every family gathering: “Suavemente.”


This song has proven to be a force of nature with some serious staying power in the Latino community.

“Suavemente” might be 19 years old this year but let’s be honest – it is still on every Latino’s party playlist.

“I lost my name because of this song because when people see me on the street they say, ‘Hey, Suavemente!’ I’m not Elvis Crespo anymore, I’m Suavemente,” Crespo joked about the massive hit. “I feel blessed because it is a blessing to have a great song like ‘Suavemente.’ If you hear ‘Suavemente,’ you feel like I could have written this song yesterday. It sounds current and that’s a blessing.”

After such a monumental hit in his career, Crespo told mitú that he still gets nervous when he puts out new music, especially something as unique for him as an EDM-infused tropical song like “Bailar.”

“When we recorded ‘Bailar,’ I had my doubts,” Crespo admitted to mitú. “It was a new path and sound but we saw the results and we kept a positive mind. We strived to bring a new sound and I found a new color to my music.”

To add even more fire to the song, Crespo teamed up with his friends, the guys from the music group Ilegales. But this isn’t the first time the two musicians have worked together.

“I worked with him for a song called ‘Yo No Soy Un Monstruo‘ and that song made it to the top of the Latin Billboard charts in 2012,” Crespo told mitú. Crespo added: “When I finished the first step of the song I called him and told him that we have a hit here and that he had to hear it. He added his creativity to this song and now we have a great song.”

And people are loving “Guayo” so much, it might be replacing “Suavemente” Zumba classes.


Crespo considers “Guayo” as a summer song. He told mitú that it is the kind of song that you put on and just dance to and enjoy it. You know you’ve got a hit when you’ve created a song that people actually want to work out to.

But the real star of the song and music video is the pineapple.

Crespo told mitú that the pineapple is one way that he and his PR team tried to engage younger people on social media. But, in the music video, the pineapple is more than just a symbol. The blue cord is an aux cord that carries the song ‘Guayo’ within to share with the world.

And Crespo has no plans on stopping there. He’s planning on making some more EDM music for his fans.

Crespo told mitú that he has become a huge fan of some EDM producers including Tiesto and Steve Aoki and hopes to work with them in the future.

“I feel right now that my voice sounds great in EDM music,” Crespo told mitú. “I feel like I found a niche with ‘Bailar’ and I want to stay on that path.”
