BILLBOARD // Dillon Francis Sticks to Moombahton Roots With ‘BaBaBa (Vete Pa’Ya) feat. Young Ash’: Listen
The release will be part of Francis’ upcoming Spanish language studio LP.
Following “Ven” and “We The Funk,” Dillon Francis offers up “BaBaBa (Vete Pa’Ya),” the third single to be released from his upcoming Spanish language studio album. The LP, which has yet to receive an exact release date, will arrive later this year on Francis’ IDGAFOS label and explores his moombahton roots.
“BaBaBa” in particular was influenced by the producer’s 2011 collab “Que Que” with Diplo. “For my album I really wanted to make a song reminiscent of ‘Que Que’, but an elevated version of it that was fun yet tough sounding,” Francis says in a press release. “Young Ash’s flow on this is exactly that. It’s truly one of my favorite tracks from the project. Her voice is so strong and striking which makes for such an incredible gritty moombahton song.”
The record comes paired with a vertical, stop-motion music video directed by Joel Strong who is known for his cardboard cutouts of celebrities in real life settings. Watch the video for Francis’ latest release with Young Ash, out today (May 9) below.

A week ago, Dillon Francis was asking fans which song he should drop next: “BaBaBa” or “Look At That Butt.” It turns out, “BaBaBa” featuring Young Ash was the winner here, as the song just dropped on Spotify with a full music video already available via YouTube.
The music video is filmed in stop motion, entirely in vertical orientation; it used a combination of paper cutouts and Young Ash and Dillon themselves, comically acting out various dance moves and silly motions. The song itself is pure, classic Dillon Francis moombahton, calling back to his styles years ago, before his debut album and tracks like “Need You.”
Dillon’s brand has become so solidified, and it’s something we love about him. We can always count on him to be fun and silly, and for his music to reflect that. Check out “BaBaBa” below!

This morning Dillon dropped his latest single “BaBaBa” featuring Young Ash. The record turns back time to the contagious Moombahton sound we all fell in love with Dillon for back in his early days. The climatic drop stands out and will easily make an impact this upcoming festival season.
