Single Release: Camaleón
‘Off the Heels South American Run Which Took Raka Rich & Raka Dun to Bogota, Colombia & Santiago, Chile (for the first time), Los Rakas Drops New Single, Camaleón’
Oakland, CA: Los Rakas return from two sold-out shows in Colombia and Chile this past weekend. Newly inspired by the overwhelming welcome they received, the Panamanian-born duo decided to put out the track, Camaleón. The track was produced by Puerto Rican producer Myztiko.
This isn’t the first time the group has been inspired by Panamanian icon, Rubén Blades. 2011’s ‘Cueria’ also sampled his ‘Pedro Navaja’ – you can watch the mini-film here. This time around, the topic turns to the special lizard which changes colors to adapt (or in this case, hide) from its surroundings – the Chameleon. Off Blades’ 1991 album ‘Caminando,’ his song ‘Cameleon’ serves as both inspiration and warning:
Be careful with the Chameleon.
While it will show you its’ face, it won’t show you its’ heart.
