“I’m extremely excited about this track, and helping put this collab together, especially since it was created so smoothly and organically,” Tainy explains. “It’s a fun piece that everyone involved loved off top, and it’s going to make people feel good.”
The track is the first new music from blanco since the release of his debut album FRIENDS KEEP SECRETS last year, which featured hits “Eastside” with Halsey and Khalid, “I Found You” with Calvin Harris, “Better to Lie” with Jesse and Swae Lee and “Roses” with Juice WRLD and Brendon Urie as well as collaborations with Ty Dolla $ign, 6LACK, Ryan Beatty and more.“Eastside,” the Grammy-winning, multi-platinum producer’s first ever artist release, is currently #1 at pop radio in the U.S. and continues to climb charts worldwide with more than 600 million streams to date.

Tainy’s solo project—due to release this year, includes features from Bad Bunny, J Balvin, Ozuna and more.
Originally from San Juan, Puerto Rico, Tainy is undeniably one of the greatest influences on the Latin movement that is reinventing today’s urban music. He has had over 40 #1 records on Billboards Latin Hot 100 Charts, and has repeatedly been nominated for a Grammy.

On the big screen, she began making the transition from young actress to adulthood with such films as the much talked about Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers. The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival to critical acclaim while Gomez’s performance was singled out as a “breakout.” She appeared in the Academy Award nominated film The Big Short opposite Brad Pitt and Ryan Gosling as well as Fundamentals of Caring alongside Paul Rudd.
