“You do everything that I say,” Kali Uchis raps in Spanish. “If you’re with me, only I call the shots.”

And she does: her latest release, Aqui Yo Mando, is an ode to her own agency. Though, she’s not completely alone, joined by Rico Nasty. The two constitute somewhat of a power duo, a femme fatale amalgamation. 

The video, released today, is every bit as dynamic as the track itself, and it’s certainly clear who’s in charge. Kali and Rico become cultish-couture assassins, wearing los pantalones. And if the message wasn’t apparent, Rico will repeat it for you: “I would never play about me / Do what I want, I don't need a thing.”

For Uchis, the release is the second of the year, following April’s TO FEEL ALIVE EP. It’s a bit of a detour into reggaeton and club sounds, a direction influenced by producer Tainy alongside Albert Hype, Jon Leone, and Rvnes. As Uchis shares in a press release, ““To my fans & new listeners; I pray this song makes you feel tasty and powerful, thank you!” We, of course, can’t wait to see what’s next. 

In the meantime, watch Kali and Rico dominate the game (in two languages) below:
