Los Rakas dropped their Love-Themed 9-song EP, “Raka Love” last week FOR FREE. The EP features original songs like the harp-alicious lead track, “Magia” (Translation: Magic) and past favorites, including Los Rakas’ collaboration with Goapele, “Play (Los Rakas Remix).”
The video for first single (above), ‘”Copita De Champaña” premiered on MTV Tr3s on Valentine’s Day.
From Los Rakas’ interview with MTV Tr3s about the video:
“Everybody nowadays is very materialistic. We wanted to show the humble side of things, and how it’s the thought that counts… You see people giving expensive things they can’t afford…a Spongebob watch only costs $2.99 and it looks fly.”
