Carly Rae Jepsen and Enrique Iglesias have joined producer Y2K and Canadian rapper bbno$ on a remix of the latter’s viral hit, “Lalala.”
The new rendition replaces bbno$’s original opening lines with a fresh verse from Jepsen, which references her hit song “Call Me Maybe” and her Canadian roots. “When I popped off, then they all call me, maybe later, I can’t talk now / Carly so cold, she from the north, she from the Canada / forty-five dates, I’m on the road / And you know I always sell out the show,” she sings.
Later in the track, Iglesias jumps in with a raunchy Spanish-language verse: “Let’s give more rhythm to the body / For this is not to be the same / I’ll tell you things in your ear / You know that our thing is fun,” he sings, as translated by Billboard.
“We went from uploading a song online with no support to having Carly Rae Jepsen and Enrique Iglesias come on and be a part of the remix,” Y2K said in a press statement. “When we sat down to brainstorm features we never in a million years expected that two of the most iconic pop artists would be down to be on our record.”
Y2K and bbno$ released “Lalala” in June to little fanfare, but the song soon went viral on the social media app TikTok. It has since peaked at number 55 on the Billboard Hot 100.
