“We are experiencing a resurgence of tropical music and it is time for the world to meet new faces of salsa, and this song is a golden opportunity to achieve that goal,” Lanier expressed in a press statement.
Only the third single of Vazquez’s blossoming career, “Pelegro”, originally released in March, peaked at number 7. Board 33 on the Tropical Airplay chart and Latin Airplay, both charts as of June 18.
The captivating salsa number, written by Damien Santiago and arranged by Jay Lugo, is about a girl he likes and his fear of entering the “friend zone”. “Tell me what will you do to me? / If we’d only be friends, if I’m in danger, tell me,” he chants in the song. At the start of the track, the 16-year-old newcomer cleverly mentions several artists across the musical spectrum and their hits including Marc Anthony, Bad Bunny and Romeo Santos.
“Making a remix of one of my songs is a dream come true and I’m so grateful to be able to share this achievement with Lanier,” ex Board Said Latin artist on the rise.
