Dolly Parton’s Seventies country vintage, “Jolene,” has been given a lot of a rendition in English, together with takes by goddaughter Miley Cyrus, the White Stripes, Pentatonix, and even a queer interpretation by Nadine Gibbs. But virtually 50 a long time because its release, the famous music finally will get its 1st Spanish-language makeover by two Mexican American divas: regional Mexican songstress Chiquis Rivera and reggaeton-pop hitmaker Becky G.
In la nueva “Jolene,” the L.A.-born superstars enjoy two tough-as-nails outlaws — with a tender spot for the very same desperado. Developed by Ulises Lozano (of electro-rock band Kinky), and rewritten in Spanish by veteran songwriter Luciano Luna, the Latina update ditches Parton’s fragile people styling and emerges anew with a brassy, cumbia swing. “If there are so lots of males in the environment/Why do you want mine?” sings Chiquis and Becky in Spanish. In the animated video, modeled following pulp fiction comics of yore, the two broads get revenge on their two-timing lover by tying him to a cactus. Underneath course by Julio Abad, the two filmed their areas individually in quarantine, working with the eco-friendly monitor method at dwelling.
Chiquis hails from regional Mexican music’s Rivera dynasty, of which her mother, the late banda singer Jenni Rivera, reigned as queen. The revamped “Jolene” is a slice off from Chiquis’ new cumbia-pop album, Playlist, which was introduced in Could.
