“Mal Acostumbrao” is Mau y Ricky’s first new single since the start of their new era with “3 de La Mañana” in June. They previously collaborated with Sebastián Yatra and Mora. The song blends Latin urban music with influences of ‘80s pop music. Their sweet love song has a street edge to it that’s embodied in the feel-good music video. The trio visits popular dating spots in Miami like a skate park, basketball courts, and a golf course to have a good time. The video was created by production company WEOWNTHECITY and directors Richard Mountainous and Santiago Lafee.
“We wanted to work with Maria for a long time and it was very funny because on the day of our session, she was supposed to arrive the day before, but her flight was delayed and we were not going to be able to do it. Then our flight out of Argentina was delayed, so our schedules had some overlap. She arrived around 2 in the afternoon and had to leave around 6, so we had like four hours to write the whole song and record it. We have been closely following the music movement happening in Argentina, and to be able to do the song with the Big One, to see how he works, was incredible. The truth is we had the best time. We’re sure that this is the first of many things that we’ll do together. Maria had the best attitude shooting the music video with us. There were long recording days and she was up for everything that we wanted to do. We really hope that people like this song that talks about starting to fall in love with a person that drives you crazy,” expressed Mau y Ricky.
