Nearly 30 years ago, Chayanne released one of his most popular hits, “Tiempo de Vals.” The song has soundtracked many a quinceañera and has reduced many a dad to a blubbering mess as they waltz with their daughters on the dance floor. But if you’re looking for something more modern for your quinces, may we suggest DJ Kass‘ “Scooby Doo Pa Pa.” We know what you’re thinking: “Scooby Doo Pa Pa” is too up-tempo for a waltz. Well, not if you take a cue from one quinceañera who used a super slowed-down cover of the song for a dance with her chambelanes.

“Scooby Doo Pa Pa” itself is inspired by another song: English comedian Michael Dapaah’s “Man’s Not Hot.” The lyrics ““skidiki-pap-pap” and a “pu-pu-drrr-boom” gave birth to DJ Kass’ version, which has in turn, become a viral dance sensation across Latin America and the United States after he dropped the song in September 2017. He premiered a video for the song earlier this week. Check it out here.
