Dillon Francis gets back to his roots with video for latest single, ‘We The Funk’
Dillon Francis officially decreed it “moombah season” with the release of his latest single, “We The Funk,” featuring Florida-based musician Fuego. To say that Francis’ impending Latin, moombahton-focused LP is one of the most anticipated dance projects of the year would be an understatement, and with this second peek at Dillon’s return to his roots, he’s poised to deliver on every bit hype this album is worth.
“We The Funk” comes complete with a synesthetic music video that ropes together the track’s evident baile, salsa, and moombah inspirations into a colorful splash of expression that complements the new tune without an overcomplicated visual concept. Fuego’s slick lyrical format glides smoothly over the “Anywhere” producer’s syrupy 85 bpm groove, and while the track isn’t your typical Dillon Francis setlist ignitor, it’s an addicting listen undoubtedly worth repeated rinses.
Francis’ long-awaited full-fledged moombahton project is due later this year via his newly-minted IDGAFOS imprint. The album was composed between Mexico, New York, Miami and the Dominican Republic over the last year or so, and with “We The Funk” plus an aced video to accompany the new single, excitement for this new record is quickly reaching an understandable boiling point.
