The legendary global single “Conga” has received an official remixed bringing in Meek Mill and Leslie Grace to the Boi-1da produced song, presented by Bacardi.
The new releases bring in fan submissions from across the world as a part of Bacardi’s “Conga Feat. You” campaign.
The new release is led by vocals from Grace, Meek Mill brings in the assistance on the verses, creating a perfect rendition of the 1985 hit single from Miami Sound MAchine’s Emilio and Gloria Estefan.
“BACARDÍ is thrilled to reveal the first-ever remake of the global smash hit ‘Conga’ and official music video. Over the past month, we closely reviewed all the incredible fan submissions from around the world and incorporated a select number into the final music video alongside the artists,” said Ned Duggan, Global Senior Vice President for BACARDÍ rum. “We’ve always seen music as such a powerful force in bringing people together, and as the world trended toward division and isolation this past year, we wanted to use music as a catalyst to bring people back together in a way that has never been done before. We can’t wait for you to see it.”
The new release comes with a music video that is sure to include “Conga” enthusiasts as they enjoy a vibrant Caribbean world.
The official song release will be included in a 30-second spot of the music video that will air during the Super Bowl pre-programming and during the premiere of The Equalizer starring Queen Latifah.
