Brazilian DJ/producer duo Tropkillaz have assembled an all-star cast for a baile funk crossover, “Bola Rebola.” The track, which roughly translates to “shake” in English, features Colombia’s J Balvin and Brazil’s Anitta and MC Zaac.

With its Afro-Brazilian rhythms and trilingual vocals, “Bola Rebola” has the potential for global appeal.

“[The song is] really representative of Brazilian/baile funk music and shows our culture can crossover with different genres,” Tropkillaz told Complex.

The Tropkillaz signed with Universal Music Group in 2018 after achieving mainstream success in Brazil and building a strong reputation in the global DJ scene. They have since released a variety of singles, including “Milk & Honey” with Aloe Blacc, and “Loko” with Major Lazer, MC Kevinho, and Busy Signal. “Milk & Honey” was one of DJcity’s most downloaded tracks of March.
