Giving in to an avalanche of requests to share a certain clip, Rancho Humilde CEO Jimmy Humilde finally posted on IG a remix that’s got fans of the corridos urbanos label asking for an original collaboration. It’s Bad Bunny’s “Si Veo a Tu Mamá”—con banda.
“Suena chingon,” wrote one user. Another asked to “make this happen bro. Sign him to Rancho Humilde!”
While Benito has yet to respond on social media, we’ve got a few reasons to hold out hope for a future collaboration with Ranch Humilde. For one, it’s already happened: In 2019, Bad Bunny guested on the remix of Natanael Cano’s corrido, “Soy el Diablo.”
More recently, Benito really seemed to love the coronavirus corrido from Los Tres Tristes Tigres
Let’s also consider that trap corrido in general is rising, and fast. Banda is being reimagined, too.
Plus, it’s not just Latinx urbano artists considering this kind of co-mingling. Snoop Dogg has repeatedly espoused his love for genres under the Regional Mexican umbrella. He’s even teamed up with Banda MS (of Mazatlán, Sinaloa, Mexico) for a joint concert this July in Ontario, California. The event has yet to be officially postponed due to Covid-19, but we’re assuming that a make up date may soon be announced. Still, a hip-hop icon of Snoop’s calibre pairing up with the massively popular Banda MS sets a certain precedent; at the very least, it encourages future cross-pollination of hip-hop with Mexican genres.
Will a Bad Bunny con Banda original happen? Will it come courtesy of Rancho Humilde? We can’t say for sure, but we definitely, seriously, really hope it does.
