Tejano legend Selena‘s 1994 hit “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” mixed with snatches of ‘s lead vocal on Major Lazer and DJ Snake‘s hit single “Lean On” could either be great or terribly wrong.

Luckily, in the hands of the talented El Dusty and Mexico-to-LA production whiz Sumohair, it’s excellent. The alarming similarity in tone between the Norwegian and Texan female vocalists is incredible, and the comparison between trap-tinged moombahton and cumbia is now a well-worn EDM trope. It’s just more proof of how ahead of the game Selena’s sound was. If looking to shock your next Afro-Latino underground dance event with a surprising jam, this one is ideal.
