It's been about a year since we found out that Dillon Francis was working on a Spanish-language album that would mark a return to his earlier days as a moombahton master. We've heard plenty jams to prove his point, from the album's lead single "Ven" to the recent "Look At That Butt." Now, after much waiting, Francis gives the world what really matters - a title and release date.
Wut Wut will meet the world with a big "Hola" on Friday, Sept. 28 Francis' label IDGAFOS.
"The whole thing started from the Westside EP in 2011," Francis said in a press release. "I had just discovered moombahton and began experimenting with Latin styles. For my second album, I wanted to create one cohesive vision, since I now have a better understanding about what that means. Latin music is very close to my heart, and I knew this would be fun. I was trying to go back to the super-duper roots where I came from. I feel like I could've put this out right after the EP, but I'm glad I did it now because everything I've learned and the people I've met."
The news is paired with a new single and music video. "Never Let You Go" features New York singer De La Ghetto, formerly part a duo with Francis' other collaborator, Arcángel. The pair began work on the tune hours after meeting at the Latin Grammys in 2016.
"He fully understood the goals I had for this album," Francis is quoted in the video's description, "and it was incredible to have an artist at his caliber vibing to my music." It's a melodic pop tune with big, '80s drums and the video, directed by Austin Peters, is colorful and cute, showcasing different couples loving life while Francis and Ghetto do the same.
