Baby Bash and Frankie J are back in full force with a new album, aptly titled Sangria. With a smooth blend of Latin Pop and West Coast rap mixed with their own hybrid blend of melodies and instrumentation, the duo debuts 13 new tracks that make up their own potent blend of aural wine.
Their first official collaborative project feature cameos from Kap G, Paula DeAnda, Ozamatli, C-Kan, Kid Frost, Jay Tee, MC Magic, Marty Obey, and Chiquis Rivera. Sangria is lead by the single “Body Yo Body,” which arrived via Billboard last Friday (Oct 13).
“Me and Frankie have had multiple top 5 hits together and solo,” says Baby Bash about the album. “Sure, it seems like 12 years between collaborations is a long time, but the musical timing feels so perfect now. It’s time to give the people the best of both worlds. From the fly Mexican American experience… the Sangria tour will bring class and genuine music back.”
Sangria is available for purchase on iTunes now.
“For the fans, it’s as though it’s been 12 years. But it’s simply because the songs hadn’t seen the light of day. We felt it was time to keep them from waiting. We wrote new songs, attached some of those that were written a while ago, renewed the production so it could fit the sound of today. And the final product is what you will hear in our album Sangria,” says Frankie J. “The sound of Mexico and America put together in a musical piece. I think the biggest misconception of Mexican/American music is that you must do one or the other. You can’t do both. You can’t do Mexican music unless you speak perfect Spanish.. And you can’t do American music, unless you speak perfect English. But I say, this this has all to do with faulty thinking. It’s ignorance in people’s behalf. I was born in Tijuana, Baja California Mexico. And I was raised in the US. And I’ve done very well in both sides of the fence.”
