Five months after Café Tacvba released their first single in four years, the Mexican quartet dropped another song from from their forthcoming album.

Their latest, released today, is a contemplative soft-rock ballad titled “Disolviéndonos.” Written by vocalist Rubén Albarrán and produced by Gustavo Santaolalla, the song also features Joey Waronker (Beck, REM, Atoms for Peace, Johnny Cash) on drums.

Santaolalla, co-writer of “Disolviéndonos” said that the song is “oniric and introspective at times and overwhelming in others. ‘Disolviéndonos’ is a song that invites us to an inner journey. A poetic path where, through the voice, the instruments and the very diverse musical landscapes, our material, slowly, is losing its form. ”

When discussing the origins of the song and the questions that were mulling around in his head, Albarrán said: “Can you hear the tumbling fall of the old tree in the lonely forest? Is everything forever? Is a dream more illusory and absurd than what we call reality? They are only questions that, little by little, fade into nothing, in the absence of a true answer.” 

See, the song is totally trippy!

The band is currently playing a few dates in Southern California and in New York. Last night, on the first night of two show dates at the House of Blues in Anaheim, Albarrán said the new album, which has yet to be named, will be released in May.

Beginning in October of last year, Café Tacvba has released three songs from the album, including “Un Par De Lugares,” “Futuro,” and this latest track. At last night’s show, the band played two new singles and a bunch of old classics.

Someone Turned Cardi B’s Coronavirus Rant Into A Remix Now It’s On The Billboard Charts

Who knew Cardi B’s rants could be music to someone’s ears.

If you haven’t already heard, Cardi B went one very long Instagram rant about the Coronavirus pandemic and its global repercussions. Last Wednesday, the Dominican rapper posted a 46-second video on Instagram airing out her fears and grievances about the disease. Towards the end of the clip Cardi B delivered the lines “Coronavirus! S*** is real! S*** is getting real!”

Now it’s Billboard hit.

Over the weekend, the Brooklyn-based DJ iMarkkeyz chopped up the soundbite and released a track called “Coronavirus.” The bit has Cardi B’s rant on loop as a trap beat plays beneath it. It didn’t take long for “Coronavirus” to take off– the song we mean. The song broke into the pop charts internationally in Bulgaria and Brazil over the weekend and eventually began to climb the ranks of iTunes. By Thursday the song was top 10 in the United States iTunes chart.

You might think the song’s virality is just another schtick but uh uh.

Cardi B and iMarkkeyz have pledged to donate proceeds from streams and downloads to go towards those affected by Coronavirus.

According to Billboard “As preliminary reports indicated, the remixed tune ‘Coronavirus’ sold 3,000 copies in the week ending March 19, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. The sales total prompts a No. 9 debut on Billboard’s Rap Digital Song Sales and a No. 13 start on the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales charts dated March 28. In addition, ‘Coronavirus’ picked up 626,000 U.S. on-demand streams in the same period”

J.Lo’s Celebrating Selena Video Is The Heartwarming Content We Need Right Now

Selena will always be a legend for Latino music lovers. The Tejano singer gave us English and Spanish songs that continue to rock our worlds. Her music is still played on the radio, in bars, and she always makes it to a few playlists out there. This weekend, people took some time to celebrate the 23rd anniversary of the release of the biopic honoring the singer.

Jennifer Lopez came through on #CelebratingSelena with her own video honoring the singer and her chance to play the role.

We’ve all seen the movie more times than we care to count. It was probably one of the most impactful movies in our younger years. It was so wonderful to see our culture represented through Selena. It was a rare moment of fully authentic representation and it is not something we will ever forget.

J.Lo’s tweet hit Selena fans in the feels as they all took time to remember the late singer.

Selena was grace and class personified. Her ability to jump into the mainstream as a Latin singer shows the kind of power she had in the music industry. She broke down barriers for Latina artists who have come after her to lead successful careers, like J.Lo and Shakira.

Who could forget the iconic bustier scene?

You know you quote “busti-caca” way more than you want to admit to. It might just be the most quotable line in the whole movie. Now that most of us are working from home until further notice, it would be a great time to watch one of the most iconic Latino films of all time.

It is still inspiring people to pay tribute to La Reina.

Even 25 years after her death, people are loving her sound and keeping her memory alive through tribute videos and just listening to her music. Selena truly is someone people will never forget. She was recently inducted into the Houston Rodeo’s Star Trail of Fame and continues to be a major figure in Latino American pop culture.

Don’t worry. You can spend any day celebrating Selena because she is one person who is always worth celebrating.
