Dolly Parton Sings “Jolene” Cumbia Version With Chiquis In Virtual Duet

After releasing her cover of “Jolene” last year, Chiquis got to sing it with Dolly Parton on Mother’s Day. For the Latin Recording Academy’s Ellas Y Su Música special, the two performed a virtual duet of Parton’s classic.

Ellas Y Su Música highlighted the biggest Latina artists across all genres.

The Latin Recording Academy, the group behind the Latin Grammys, hosted the Ellas Y Su Música special on Univision. Latina superstars from all genres like Thalía, Alejandra Gúzman, Gloria Estefan, and Anitta performed during the show. In a surprise moment, country music legend Dolly Parton performed with Mexican-American singer Chiquis.

Dolly Parton said she’s happy to be uplifting women in any genre.

Parton introduced the regional Mexican music section of Ellas Y Su Música. “Buenas noches, ya’ll!” she exclaimed to the audience at home. “I would never pass up the opportunity to celebrate women in music in any language. We owe it to ourselves to stick together and lift each other up.”

Chiquis, the daughter of banda music legend Jenni Rivera, released her Spanish cover of “Jolene” last year as a duet with Becky G. The song was a part of Chiquis’ Latin Grammy-winning album Playlist. Parton had to sign off on the cover, so it was awesome to see her perform it with Chiquis this year.

Dolly Parton performed “Jolene” in cumbia for the first time with Chiquis.

“I love being able to join country and Latin music,” Parton said in a statement. “Hearing Jolene done in Latin cumbia rhythm and getting to sing to the beat was so much fun for me.”

In a red gown, Chiquis appeared on-stage surrounded by cowboys. After introducing her as “mi amiga,” Parton appeared on a screen behind Chiquis. Dolly performed the original lyrics in English while Chiquis echoed her in Spanish. Chiquis then followed with her hit “Anímate y Verás.”

“Wow, this has been an absolute blessing and a moment I will never forget!” Chiquis added. “I am blown away not only by Dolly’s legendary talent but also by her generosity in recording her vocals to the cumbia tempo in order to be part of our performance. She has always been one of my career role models and this is such a dream come true.”

@anitta | Latido Music by mitú

In our exclusive interview here at Latido Music by mitú with Brazilian Pop icon Anitta, the “Girl From Rio” singer talked to us more in detail about her new song which was inspired by “The Girl From Ipanema”, filming the music video, the rumors about a Maluma collab in the works and more.

Watch the full interview below:

The “Girl From Rio” music video pays homage to old cinema, but also celebrates the current vibrant Rio culture

The video is a celebratory homage to the resilient and vibrant culture of her hometown of Rio de Janeiro. Switching from 1950s cinema to today’s diversity in the city. Updating the melody of “The Girl From Ipanema” with a 21st-century twist, Anitta serves up a sassy, trap-beat-infused sexy ode to the ladies of her hometown. 

While writing the song, there were rumors in Brazil that Anitta might have another brother from her dad’s side. Turns out, that the rumors were true and Anitta decided to include her half-brother in the music video, which became a family affair.

Anitta also shared on her Twitter how proud she is about this project and the visual direction from Giovanni Blanco and Jeff Selis.

Anitta also talked to us about what it meant for her to win the Best Female Artist award at this year’s Latin American Music Awards, and how for a Girl From Rio like her to break into the Latin music industry is a huge honor.

Anitta has been keeping busy lately promoting “Girl From Rio.”

Just this past Tuesday, Anitta had a beautiful performance from The Goodtime Hotel in Miami for Jimmy Kimmel Live!
