They’re already one of the most influential groups in Latin music, having pioneered the urban Latino genre and spawned imitator after imitator. With FUEGO, A.B. QUINTANILLA III & KUMBIA KINGS are destined to remain Latin music standard-setters and will reach an even broader international audience.
It’s a title that everyone can understand – one simple word that tells us what A.B. Quintanilla III & Kumbia Kings are bringing on this album – FUEGO. The fire of this EMI LATIN release spreads to retail on October 5.
The first single from FUEGO is the title track – an irresistible call to the dance floor that features intense vallenato accordion, funky guitar, and beats that will get everything shaking within a two-block radius.
To get the FUEGO started across the Americas, A.B. QUINTANILLA III & KUMBIA KINGS will soon be kicking off their tour, hitting over 20 cities in the U.S., Mexico and Puerto Rico.
Produced by A.B. QUINTANILLA III and CRUZ MARTINEZ, FUEGO is the result of a great deal of hard work, creative inspiration, and cutting-edge savvy.
FUEGO is an album that continues the group’s internationalization – since 1998, Kumbia Kings have been one of the most exciting and popular groups on the regional Mexican scene with their fusion of cumbia, hip-hop, reggae and other rhythms. In the last two years, thanks to its remix albums and collaborations with artists such as Aleks Syntek and Juan Gabriel, the group has made itself known in the Latin pop world and on the club scene.
