Cazwell’s “Duo Lingo” is about going out to have a good time, partying with friends and getting laid. “The idea for the song came from when I was using the Duo Lingo app on my iPhone, trying to learn Spanish, and failing miserably, I might add,” Cazwell explains.
“I wish I could speak Spanish,” Cazwell admits. “I date a lot of Latin men and it would come in handy. It can be a hindrance being white as hell as I am.”
Produced by Cazwell and DJ Mad Science, the track is the third single by the rapper to combine Latino flavor with electronic drops; following hits “Rice and beans” and ““¡Spicy!”.
“I love adding percolating Latin rhythms to my hip pop records because they’re sexy and always get people on the dance floor.”
The music video was filmed last month at the legendary FuBar in West Hollywood. Directed by Brad Hammer, it features a slew of recognizable faces and bodies including adult film stars Cesar Xes, Beaux Banks, Fernando Figuero and Rudy Yos. “Most of the boys in the video are dancers in West Hollywood where I DJ,” Cazwell continues. “I wanted to make sure the bar looked like a hole-in-the-wall dive bar, as grimy and as ratchet possible.”
The intention is to pay homage to the world’s male go-go dancers. “We all have a hustle. Some people get their hustle on social media or on the go-go box and some people do it on Wall Street. I respect everyone’s grind. These boys have a lot of discipline and work very hard.”
Cazwell and the cast close out the “Duo Lingo” music video with a celebratory salsa dance performance. “I love videos where all the cast comes together at the end and I knew finishing the video with a cute dance that got everyone involved would wrap the video up in a nice little bow.”
Cazwell’s “Duo Lingo” featuring Tom Bike and Mad Science, is available on Apple Music, Spotify, and all major digital retailers via Cazwell’s own imprint, SNOWCONE NYC. Also look out for Cazwell’s new DJ mixtape, also dedicated to strippers and go-go boys. Several of the dancers in the video also appear on the mixtape.
