    Drake And Romeo Santos Release New Song That Proves Bachata Has Gone Mainstream

    Lovers of bachata, the romantic Spanish music genre that hails from the Dominican Republic, know Romeo Santos well. And now Drake joins Santos (and sings in Spanish!) on a new song called "Odio."

    Romeo Santos, the self-proclaimed King of Bachata, whose 2012 album was the top Latin album of the year, features a host of cameos including Nicki Minaj, Kevin Hart, and Marc Anthony. But the first single features none other than Drake.

    The internet is...excited.

    Drake surprised many by following Romeo's verse with his own in really smooth Spanish.

    Later in the song, he comes in rapping in English. Check out the song below. It's available on iTunes Monday.
