WATCH: Rauw Alejandro & Ángel Dior Drop Surprise Collaboration “TAMO EN NOTA”

This is not a drill: Rauw Alejandro and the Dominican rapper Ángel Dior just dropped a surprise collaboration. The two Caribbean artists released “TAMO EN NOTA,” along with a hype music video to go with it.

“Angel just dropped another banger (With El Zorro), ‘TAMO EN NOTA’ with my little bro @angeldiorreal a romper g. I had so much fun making this collab!!!! The Caribbean is the fokin pampara!!!!!” Rauw Alejandro wrote on an Instagram post.

The rhythmic dembow-infused track immediately starts with high energy. The music video, directed by Rodrigo Films, begins with the two artists riding individual jet skis. Ángel raps in his signature cadence, wearing an all-black wardrobe with a mask covering his face. A shot shows the duo in front of a dinner table with food like fried chicken and potatoes. Another video frame demonstrates Rauw laying down his verses at La 42 in the Dominican Republic, surrounded by people dancing to the catchy beat. 

Social media users across the platforms are excited and surprised about this unforeseen collaboration. A YouTube user, barkeepbarkeep3276, wrote: “Thank you rauw for supporting our new Dominican talent and believing in our culture, success with that track that is great. Blessings ❤.” Another social media user wrote: “rauw alejandro collaborating with angel dior q locura.” 

It appears Ángel Dior is on the verge of global stardom. Besides this collaboration, he has another exciting one on the way. Last week, Karol G revealed her upcoming album Mañana Será Bonito’s tracklist, which unveiled a collaboration with Justin Quiles and Ángel Dior on “OJOS FERRARI.” Though we’ve yet to listen to it, based on this collaboration with Rauw, we can expect another banger.

As for Rauw, he’s starting his anticipated Saturno tour this weekend (Feb. 18) in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
