Locos Por Juana & Talib Kweli Launching Bilingual Single "For The Ladies"

“In the spirit of their ‘outside the box’ performances (which always include random, but well thought out collaborations), we bring you a brand new video from Locos Por Juana. The track by this Miami, world fusion artist, features the unmistakable flow of ex Black Star member Talib Kweli!. The song bumps and …bridges the genres of Hip-Hop and world music. ‘For the Ladies,’ is a catchy anthem that proclaims love above all else. It’s also a great example of how ‘good tunes is good tunes,’ no matter the language. For some more energetic Pan-American beats, check out Locos Por Juana’s new album, Caribe.” - KCRW

“Locos Por Juana has been nominated for both Grammy and Latin Grammy Awards, so the band knows a thing or two about making music that people enjoy. With the new video ‘For the Ladies’ (featuring Talib Kweli), the band shows again that no matter what styles are encompassed, it can make enjoyable music that grabs your attention. The melody of this song is funky. The guitar and the horns are hard to resist, and they will get you bouncing. …the bottom line is that it is just a catchy song that will get you moving. In fact, it's so catchy that it might get stuck in your head for days, and that's not a bad thing” - AXS

“For more than 15 years, Locos por Juana has helped define a soundtrack unique to Miami, mixing elements of cumbia, champeta, salsa, soca, reggae and dancehall into a frenzy of fresh rhythms filled with inspiration born of migration and creative exchange. The band's newest album, ‘Caribe,’is perhaps its most ambitious tribute to the countries that border the Caribbean…But the album, also explores another aspect of the Caribbean that for the musicians, and their fans, may be even more exotic: songs written and performed in English. While the band has done songs with English lyrics in concert, ‘Caribe’ includes the first bilingual songs that Locos por Juana has recorded… Perhaps the bilingual song that may prove most popular is ‘For the Ladies,’ a swinging piece of jazzy, urban funk that includes dueling vocals from [LPJ’s] Itawe in Spanish and New York hip-hop star Talib Kweli” - Sun-Sentinel / Southflorida.com
