First things first, this song is an absolute blast. There’s only so many ways to say that without sounding like a broken record, so let’s see what we can come up with.
“MAMASITA” flows like a club hit from the early 2000s, which is both comforting in its familiarity and thrilling in the ways that it elevates past that association. The pure charisma of MAD CIRCUIT’s LG (Team Genius) and Sereda is ricocheting off every inch of this song’s landscape. Their respective verses and hooks feel like each powerhouse is reaching into your world and forcefully pulling you into theirs.
“Sereda and LG are so different, but both are really cool, high-end voices that always flash new things. Each of their voices serve as two different ‘instruments’ I can use in the studio. LG boasts a strong hip-hop background while Sereda comes from an entirely different realm with her Spanish swag and sexy style of R&B and pop. But they both have this gritty confidence oozing out of them, which really brings it all together.” – Producer JR
Not often does a song so expertly bridge tones as “MAMASITA” does transitioning from sensual coos like “rock my body next to your body / like the wind you whisper words ‘get naughty'” into a Deliverance reference. If that wasn’t bold enough, it follows with a sing-song gibberish section that made me laugh out loud when I first heard it.
There is ample joy in the span of MAD CIRCUIT’s creation, but the real pleasure is in the experience of hearing it again and again.
“MAMASITA” is out now and streaming everywhere, check it out!
