Ahead of the film’s release later this month, COMPADRES has released the single “Maria” by C-Kan from it’s soundtrack. It was a smart move, too – where trailers often fight for eyeballs on the internet, his built-in fanbase has already helped the video garner over two million views in two weeks.
Whether or not you understand Spanish (mine is rusty, so I got about half the lyrics), as soon as the beat of “Maria” kicks in you’ll find yourself tapping your toes or even doing a few dance moves in your cubicle. “Maria” opens with an acoustic guitar riff that quickly morphs into a groovy rap with an accompanying trumpet line that almost makes you wish the song was longer than the three minutes we get in this video.
If you like what you hear, C-Kan has other songs from the film on his Spotify page, and the film will be in theaters on April 22, 2016.
Warning: the video does show scenes from the film that include graphic violence, including blood. If you want to hear the song without the imagery, you can also listen here on Spotify.
Starring: Omar Chaparro, Joey Morgan, Eric Roberts, Kevin Pollak, Erick Elías, Aislinn Derbez, Camila Sodi, Héctor Jiménez, Mauricio Barrientos and José Sefami.
