ChocQuibTown Celebrates Latinas Of All Shades In “Morena” Music Video

Colombian group ChocQuibTown is back with the new single “Morena.” They teamed up with fellow Colombian duo Lil Silvio y El Vega and Dominican singer La Ross María. In the music video, ChocQuibTown highlight Latinas of every shade and color.

ChocQuibTown is about Black and Afro-Latino empowerment.

“Morena” is ChocQuibTown’s first taste of new music this year. In April, the Latin Grammy-winning trio joined Ir Sais and Afro B for their proudly Afro-Latino anthem “Midnight Boom.” As Black artists from Chocó, ChocQuibTown celebrates being Afro-Latino in their music. In June 2020, ChocQuibTown’s Goyo helped launch the Conciencia Collective in support of the #BlackLivesMatter movement and to confront anti-Blackness within the Latino community.

ChocQuibTown’s “Morena” is a beautiful love song.

For “Morena,” ChocQuibTown teamed up Lil Silvio y El Vega and La Ross María. Backed by tropical beats, ChocQuibTown’s Tostao and Slow and Lil Silvio & El Vega sing the praises of the morena women in their lives. Goyo and La Ross Maria proudly represent the morena women who are being celebrated. The bubbly love song is a refreshing and beautiful collaboration.

“I honestly didn’t think I’d be part of this track,” La Ross María said in a statement. “It’s one of my favorites and I think it will be a hit with the favor of God. It was an honor and a pleasure to work with ChocQuibTown and Lil Silvio y El Vega and I can’t wait to be able to sing and dance to this song in public.”

Latinas of all shades are celebrated in ChocQuibTown’s “Morena” music video.
