The two talented artists team up for an explosive R&B and Latin trap collaboration on their new song “Como Amigos” which tells the story of two friends who emotionally cross the line.
The song begins with a smooth sound with a catchy bass, followed by the vocals. The beat drops at 34 seconds with the kick, snare, and clap. It is a great mix of R&B and hip hop.
The poetic lyricism stands out with vulnerable verses such as, “Si tú quieres quedamos como amigos / Pero no me pidas que yo deje de chingar contigo / Contigo yo subo al cielo bebé.” Which translate to “If you want we stay as friends / But don’t ask me to stop messing with you / With you I go up to heaven baby.”
This song, which uses a variety of seductive and love making sounds, examines the feelings of two people who formerly had a complicated friendship but are now solely interested in maintaining it. It is a perfect blend of Chris Wandell and Rauw Alejandro‘s vocals with the blending of their respective rhythms results in a singular and amazing listening experience.
This latest partnership is a component of Chris Wandell’s newest album, “Mi Monopolio,” a 12-song musical journey that demonstrates Wandell’s flexibility through collaborations with key figures in Latin urban music like Jowell, De La Ghetto, Almighty, Rafa Pabon, Lyanno, and now Rauw Alejandro.
