This is very rare.
It’s safe to say that by this point, we’re all familiar with O.T. Genasis’s smash single “CoCo.” The song is rapidly rising on the Billboard charts and has invaded clubs across America, and the video has amassed over 27 million views on YouTube since its mid-October release.
All those accolades are nice, but this video of New York-based band Tipico Urbano performing a live Merengue rendition of “CoCo” is arguably the nail in the coffin of determining just how big the track has gotten. The Latin rework has breathed entirely new life into the already red-hot record and made it clear that it is a true multicultural phenomenon. Some commenters are even calling it “Better than the original lmaooooo,” but that’s for you to decide for yourself.
Watch above, and as a bonus, listen to a Kidz Bop version of the song called “I’m In Love With The Cocoa,” performed by a four-year-old, below.
