“PEPAS” has become a global phenomenon topping streaming charts with over 325 million streams combined, and has hit #1 in 9 countries and trending in over 22 countries. Farruko’s festive single has also become a viral hit on platforms like REELS and TikTok. The music video released just two weeks ago, has already accrued over 45 million views. To watch it press here. “PEPAS” is also the top song in Spanish language and performed by a Latino artist, on Spotify’s Top 50 Global Chart.
“PEPAS” shows Farruko once again demonstrating his chameleon-like ability to surprise fans across the world by going a more Latin music/EDM dance party route. While the song starts off slow with Farruko singing in a melody that begins to build up, it quickly picks up and morphs into something that is reminiscent of pre-COVID dance parties. To perfectly match the vibe and energy of the song, Farruko expertly weaves a story of complete fun at the club with one’s closest friends enjoying life in its purest form.
“The fans were ready for a song that allows them to enjoy the music without any worry. “PEPAS” is a celebration of life and the possibility of being together dancing wherever we are. That was our intention when we wrote the song and I think that is why the audience has embraced it”, Farruko notes.
After making his “PEPAS” performance debut at Premios Juventud last month, Farruko performed the song during his powerful and energy packed sets at BAJA BEACH FEST in Rosarito, MX these past two weekends with thousands of fans chanting his hit song word for word.
Farruko is gearing up for his first ever upcoming U.S. arena tour, «LA 167 Tour» which will make stops in 12 cities, including California, Texas, Florida, and more. “LA 167” will kick-off November 2021 and will take him to his native Puerto Rico in February 2022, where he made history when he sold out his February 5, 2022 show in the iconic José Miguel Agrelot Coliseum (Coliseo de Puerto Rico) during pre-sale (prompting the artist to add February 4, 2022 tour date to his lineup). “LA 167 Tour” will wrap up in Chicago, IL on February 20, 2022 at the Rosemont Theatre. He is currently putting the finishing touches on the highly-anticipated LA 167 album, slated for release in the coming months.
