(November 9, 2018 — Los Angeles, CA) — Rising Peruvian-born singer, songwriter and producer A.CHAL shares his brand new single and music video “LA DUEÑA” [feat. Darell] today. Get it HERE via Epic Records and watch the music video HERE!

A.CHAL serves up a slick, seductive, and sexy anthem befitting of his worldwide reputation for bold bangers. Backed by a swaggering Latin groove and hummable guitar, his voice immediately takes hold in between fiery bars courtesy of collaborator Darell. The Puerto Rican breakthrough star recently lent his voice to one of 2018’s biggest reggaetón records “Te Boté (Remix)” and now he joins forces with A.CHAL!

Meanwhile, the music video helmed by renowned Mexican video director Arturo Aldapa reflects this spirit. Shot on location in Guadalajara, Mexico, a seductive narrative unfolds in a dimly lit nightclub. You won’t be able to turn away! This has all the makings of yet another global hit from the artist.

Most importantly, “LA DUEÑA” sets the stage for the release of his forthcoming EXOTIGAZ EP, arriving on December 7. Illuminating his bilingual hybrid of pop, Latin, electronic, and hip-hop, the six-track collection showcases the scope of his style and sound.

About the project, he shared, EXOTIGAZ is a mood that combines the energy of the women and clubs in Miami with the attitude of the cowboys in Texas and Cali. The EP defines where I’m at right now and is only an introduction to all the music that I’ve been making. Stay tuned GAZI WORLD.

Check out the full tracklisting below.

“LA DUEÑA” follows up this year’s breakthrough smash “Love N Hennessy” (Remix) [feat. 2 Chainz Nicky Jam]. Not only did it scorch airwaves, but it also earned over 56 million cumulative streams between the original version and remix. Additionally, he infiltrated the fashion world by featuring in Summer 2018 “Meet Me In The Gap” campaign.

Now, A.CHAL stands primed for a massive 2019 as one of music’s most exciting new talents. Get ready!

Confidently owning a cross-section of cultures and genres, A.CHAL carved out his own lane as an international force by the start of 2018. At the top of the year,Google Play Music touted him among “Latin Artists to Watch for 2018, and Pandora also included him on its “Latin Artists to Watch 2018. 2017 saw his star dramatically rise. Zane Lowe personally premiered the original “Love N Hennessy” as his Apple Music Beats 1 “World Record.” It landed on Amazon’s “Best Songs of 2017” and Remezcla’s “Best Latin Songs of 2017. Additionally, the 2017 mixtape ON GAZ claimed a spot on Pigeons & Planes’ “Best Albums of 2017 (So Far)”and on Redbull’s “21 Albums that made us feel something.” Early on, the fashion world sought him out as a tastemaker as he appeared in capsule collections such as FRAME Denim x Ben Gorham Men and Stussy x Mr. Porter. Inking a partnership with Epic Records and releasing “Love Hennessy” (Remix) [feat. 2 Chainz & Nicky Jam], he’s angling towards superstardom now.
