This song is part of our “THE SUMMER 97 (1998 x 2023)” playlist. Check out the full list.

There’s something magical that happens when a pop princess finds her dance DJ prince. Just ask Kelly Rowland. The collaboration between KAROL G and Tiësto, “Don’t Be Shy,” was a worldwide hit for the Colombian superstar singer and Dutch DJ, so it’s a no-brainer that the pair hooked up once again. The newly-released “PROVENZA (REMIX)” is a dancefloor-ready mix of one of her more laid-back tracks, transforming its vibe from beach day to night club. KAROL G’s signature slinky, tongue-twisting style of rap singing is abundant in rhymes and criminally catchy — even if you don’t speak Spanish.

Watch the “PROVENZA (REMIX)” live, stream it, or pre-order the BICHOTA SEASON vinyl.

In celebration of summer, the staff at THE 97 has compiled a playlist containing some of our favorite summer songs, from then and now. Each day we will reveal one song, rotating daily between past and present with pairings from 1998 and 2023, for a total of 97 days/songs. Since we love nostalgia, we’re celebrating summer songs from 1998 as they turn 25, alongside new songs that we feel deserve some shine. Pairings could be thematic, sonic, or based connections between the artists.
