C. Tangana Goes Corrido with Carin León in “Cambia!”

Spanish rapper C. Tangana went full pop star on his new album El Madrileño with the help of today’s Latin music superstars. The standout among the collaborations-loaded LP is his corrido “Cambia!” with rising regional Mexican music artists Carin León and Adriel Favela.

C. Tangana rounded up the best Latin music acts for El Madrileño.

To break out of his European bubble, C. Tangana enlisted Latino legends like José Feliciano, Jorge Drexler, and Andrés Calmaro as featured artists on El Madrileño. He also used this album as a platform to highlight the up-and-coming Latin acts like León and Favela.

“Cambia!” is a show-stopping corrido.

“Cambia!” was written by C. Tangana, León, Favela, and his longtime producer Alizzz. León is most known for his Sierreño cover of “,” one of the most played regional Mexican music songs on Spotify last year. Favela came up through the corridos tumbados record label Rancho Humilde.

It’s a majestic journey of emotions for C. Tangana as he enters the world of the Mexican corrido with León and Favela. A cute moment on “Cambia!” is when the Spanish artist lets out a little grito of his own. León’s grito roars right behind his. His collaborators refer to him by his nickname “Puchito.” C. Tangana rolls with the punches in this powerful, Euro-pop corrido.

Every song on El Madrileño was released with a visual. The video for “Cambia!” features people being driven around Madrid in a taxi. Among the folks are a few children and a drag performer who changes into their dress in the backseat.

Other rising stars who C. Tangana worked with on El Madrileño are Mexican folk singer Ed Maverick and Chicano pop star Omar Apollo. He has four Latin Grammys to his name for co-writing Rosalía’s El Mal Querer album with her.

Chicano Pop Star Omar Apollo is Releasing a Hot Sauce Featuring His Family’s Recipe

NATE GUENTHER

Omar Apollo has something cooking and it’s not music. The rising Chicano pop star announced the release of his hot sauce Disha Hot and it’s coming this Friday.

Apollo’s Disha Hot sauce is based on a family recipe.

Apollo announced the news this week on his social media accounts. He said that Disha Hot was a project that he started working on at the start of his quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic. The website for Disha Hot reveals more information about the hot sauce’s origin.

“Omar’s parents immigrated to the US from Guadalajara and started a Mexican restaurant called El Super Taco, but sadly they had to close it after Omar was born,” the statement reads. “The recipe for Disha Hot has been passed down from generations and it has always been Omar’s dream to share it with the world.”

Fans can start ordering Apollo’s Disha Hot sauce on Friday from the website here. The hot sauce goes on sale at 1 p.m. PST / 4 p.m. EST, so move fast because it’s a limited release. The flavor includes cilantro, lime, and toasted chile de arbol.

After a few years of generating buzz online through his EPs, Apollo released his debut album Apolonio last October. Though not one to put a label on his sexual identity, the LP features some pretty queer tracks, including “Hey Boy” with Apollo’s BFF Kali Uchis, who is openly bisexual. We stan.

“I’ve been pretty fluid with my music since like the beginning,” Apollo told SPIN in October. “I was a little more subtle about it before. This project made me feel that I had to be real and be myself. I just write from experience.”

Another standout on the album is Apollo’s corrido-R&B hybrid “Dos Uno Nueve,” a nod to his Indiana area code. Last week, he teamed up with pop hit-maker Benny Blanco for his album Friends Keep Secrets 2. They collaborated on the track “Care.” Apollo also featured on C. Tangana’s “Te Olvidaste” for the Spanish rapper’s El Madrileño album.
