Download: Camileazy’s “Se Fue”

Camileazy curves a trifling lover with mutant merengue on upcoming album’s first single.

Camileazy has been making his mark on Chilean hip-hop for a minute now. As one half of the group Zonora Point, he and partner Jamez Manuel put out a series of hits, many focusing on la vida cotidiana – partying with friends and odes to the fairer sex, like 2010’s “Huachita Rica,” which Zonora collaborator Douster built with micro samples from Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock’s “It Takes Two.”

The two have since started focusing on solo projects, though they link on the regular for appearances. They continue to deliver solid streams of the blend of hip-hop, trap, and reggaeton that have gotten them in trouble with purists.

Camileazy, for one, is untroubled about such criticism. “Being so strict [about musical genres] makes it difficult to move away from where you’re at,” he said in a 2015 interview with Noisey Mexico. “Music isn’t a dogma or anything like that, it’s an instrument to be able to distract yourself, have fun, play, dance.”

Santiago producer Eterdrink gives “Se Fue” a more upbeat feel than Prince of Persa 2, Camileazy’s trap-tinged release from earlier this year. A delicate, mutant merengue típico loop brings to mind a man dancing through the space left by a trifling lover. Camileazy even manages to drop some legendary bars for all the quisqueyanos out there: “Me como su toto como si fuera el pan.” The matter-of-fact, sing-song chorus was released with the help of power team of NWLA and trap label Fiebre41, who have been responsible for a host of new singles from the Chilean hip-hop hornet’s nest, including Young Cister’s moody breakup anthem “Donde Estás.”

“Se Fue” will appear on Camileazy’s upcoming album Alone, set to drop on NWLA.

Adiós, bragas. Fuera, chones. Happy #NoPantyDay!

Hoy es el día en que te quitas los chones, en el que te pones una falda corta, en el que te agachas sugestivamente frente a todos los señores.

Poco tiempo después de haber lanzado NWLA, a principios del 2011, como carta de presentación nos dimos a la tarea de armar una recopilación dedicada al “amor y otros malviajes” en la que reunimos a varios talentos emergentes junto con otros más reconocidos ya desde aquellas fechas.
