Nuevo Merengue: Watch Renzo’s “Perdi El Control” Video

Words by Sabia McCoy-Torres—

Renzo-Perdi-El-Control

Dominican merengue artist Renzo has just dropped an imaginative video for “Perdi El Control,” the followup to his debut single “Mi Favorita” (which made it to No. 5 on Billboard’s Tropical Airplay chart,  an impressive beginning for a spanking new artist.) Who could blame listeners and viewers for their captivation with the charm of this D.R. native? With dance moves that evoke Michael Jackson, hip-hop, and Spanish Caribbean sazon, Renzo maneuvers his way through a 1950′s Caribbean dreamland to find inspiration for his craft in “Perdi El Control.”

We recently had the opportunity to sit down with the Refugee Camp Sound president for a wide-ranging conversation on all things dancehall and Jamaica, ahead of his upcoming appearance at the 30th anniversary edition of the world’s greatest dancehall show, Sting.

Last Party on Earth mixtape

So, we hear there’s one night before we all die in a cataclysmic, earth-terminating event predicated thousands of years ago by the Mayan calendar. If you’re like this dude, you’re preparing for the apocalypse in the 70-by-50-foot diesel-powered “ark” you built with your life savings. If you’re like us, you’re getting ready to party. (This is where we’ll be, for the record).
