Gente De Zona

Gente de Zona are wrapping up 2019 with a new single, a new collaboration and their very own amusement theme park. Yes, theme park!

The Cuban duo, best known for hits such as “Bailando” and “La Gozadera,” teamed up with Puerto Rican reggaeton twosome Zion & Lennox to bring to life their joint track “Poquito a Poco,” premiering on Billboard below.

Spotlighting GdZ’s signature Cubaton sound and Z&L’s distinguishable voices, the single is about a man who’s crazy over a girl who, they claim in the lyrics, slowly but surely knows how to do things the right way to please him. 

The playful music video, at the helm of Cuban director Pedro Vasquez, takes fans on a journey through “Gozalandia” (Funland), an amusement park with rides, music, and odd incidents. 

“[Gente de Zona’s] Randy had the idea of making it an animated video because they were traveling a lot and didn’t have time to film a video,” Vasquez tells Billboard. “The characters represent the iPhone emojis, that’s why they have small bodies and big heads.”

Crazy things happen at “Gozalandia,” according to Vasquez, including a magical Ferris wheel that has the power of undressing other cartoons in the theme park, best describing the song produced by Motiff. “My team and I took the initiative of recreating ‘Poquito a Poco’ in a fun way,” he says.
