Sometimes we’re lucky enough to witness a collaboration we didn’t even know we needed. This weekend, we got just that when Andalusia’s Mala Rodríguez dropped a track with el gran guaynabichi himself, Guaynaa, and the New Orleans Queen of bounce, Big Freedia. The single, “Dame Bien,” — as in, “give it to me good” — was released alongside a music video that’s all parts flashy, NSFW perreo goodness.

Chock full of neon fishnet, popping nalgas, and red-hot silks, the visuals for “Dame Bien” arrive just in time as the perfect Halloweekend party backdrop. Rodríguez, who’s giving serious dominatrix vibes in her thigh-high latex boots, opens the video flanked on all sides by her dance squad. “Nadie va a mori,’ nada va a explotá,’” or “Nobody’s going to die, nobody’s going to explode,” she purrs, before laying into her one command on the track: “Ahora dame bien,” she repeats over the single’s thumping dembow beat.

Guaynaa, on his part, ups the raunchiness for his feature on “Dame Bien.” And in his true jokester form, the Boricua MC banters with Rodriguez by the end of his verse, making a smart play on her name: “Sucio, pero nunca mal hablado/Tú eres mala, Mala, pero yo soy malcriado,” he raps.

In what marks the track’s best switch-up, Big Freedia kicks off a surprise dancehall drop echoing Mala’s hook: “Ahora, ahora, ahora, don’t wait,” goes the Queen Diva. But what makes the “Icing so thick” on the cake is when she delivers her lines in Spanish, instead. “Yo hablo con mi culo!” she raps, and as far as “Dame Bien” goes, the same can be said for everyone’s cheeky moments.

“Dame Bien” is the leading single off Mala Rodríguez’s upcoming album, slated for release in 2020.
