Global superstars and fellow Colombians Kali Uchis and Karol G have shared a new collaboration, “Labios Mordidos,” alongside a video. Karol teased the track in her performance at last weekend’s Billboard Music Awards.
Kali and Karol—two of the most-streamed women in music today—have become friends in recent years, bonding over their shared Colombian roots and first collaborating on “ME TENGO QUE IR” from Karol’s Mañana Sera Bonita (Bichota Season) earlier this year.
“I’m so excited for the Kuchis to finally have one of my favorite songs on Orquídeas with one of my favorite artists, Karol,” Uchis says. “I hope this brings everyone lots of holiday cheer and you make plenty of memories going into the new year with this song!”
“Labios Mordidos” is taken from Kali’s fourth LP and second Spanish-language album, Orquídeas, set for release on January 12.
Beyond Karol G, Orquídeas features collaborations with some of the biggest names in Latin music including Peso Pluma and Rauw Alejandro. Thus far, Kali has previewed the album with the global hit “Muñekita,” featuring El Alfa and City Girl’s JT, and “Te Mata,” Kali’s top Latin single debut to date.
Last month, Kali wrapped her completely sold-out, two-part headlining Red Moon In Venus Tour—with stops at theaters and arenas nationwide, a massive mainstage slot at Coachella in April and international festivals including Lollapalooza in Chile, Argentina, and Brazil, and Estéreo Picnic in Colombia. She officially finished this run of tour dates with a performance at Tyler, The Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival.
Kali’s latest album, Red Moon In Venus, was released in March to widespread critical acclaim and became her first Top 10 charting album, debuting at No.4 on the Billboard 200. The album has been featured on Best Of 2023 lists from Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, The Washington Post, Complex, Variety, Billboard, and more.
