Los Tucanes de Tijuana just made our Friday better! As we know, the norteño group puts you to dance, and with their new infectious EDM-infused “Yo Las Pongo,” they continue to do just that. It’s no wonder how they’ve transcended generation after generation — they just know how to get the party started.

“‘YO LAS PONGO’ is now available on all digital platforms! @lostucanesdetijuana @deorro and @maffio,” the Latin Grammy-winning band posted on Instagram. “Thank you so much for these first 10,000 streams.”

With this innovative and festival-ready collaboration with the Mexican-American DJ and producer Deorro and Dominican music producer Maffio, Los Tucanes de Tijuana enhance their musical capabilities. Featuring the group’s incomparable high-pitched vocals and distinguished accordion blended with Deorro’s EDM production that is known to deliver banger after banger – the two have created a hit that thoroughly encapsulates Tucanes’ upbeat norteño music and Deorro’s club sound.

“Tu quieres saber lo que yo les hago a las viejas?” the vocalist playfully asks before singing the catchy chorus: “A las viejas pongo a cuchichear / A las viejas pongo a cachondear / A las viejas pongo a disfrutar / A las viejas pongo a saborear.” For those familiar with the Tijuana-originated band, we instantly recognize the use of repeated phrases that the Tucanes are known for to hype up their fans.

It goes without saying that “Yo Las Pongo” proves that since its start in 1987, Los Tucanes de Tijuana continue to innovate with their genre-bending collaborations. On the other hand, it is no surprise that Deorro participated in this forward-thinking track. The DJ is known to inject his Mexican culture whenever possible during his live sets. Fans have also speculated about a collaboration for years now, so it’s exciting to finally listen to this highly-anticipated collaboration that celebrates one of Mexico’s favorite icons.
