Peruvian pop star Leslie Shaw performed her new single "Faldita" for the first time live at Miami's Calle Ocho Festival on March 10. She was joined by Venezuelan-born duo Mau y Ricky.
"Faldita" (Little Skirt) is the latest single by Shaw. She is most known for representing her country in the Viña del Mar International Song Festival in 2011. Shaw released her previous single "Voverte a Ver" (To See You Again) last year as a duet with the late Colombian singer Legarda. With the news of his untimely death this year, he received tributes from fellow Colombian superstars J Balvin and Maluma.
Shaw wrote "Faldita" with Mau y Ricky and the guys' frequent collaborator, producer Jesus "DalePlay" Herrera. The song was released on International Women's Day and in it, she sings about living her best life in the club while rocking her favorite skirt. Mau y Ricky share how in awe they are of Shaw once she starts dancing. Dancehall beats back Shaw on this empowering Latin banger for the girl who just wants to have fun.
During Mau y Ricky's headlining set at the Calle Ocho festival, Shaw appeared to perform "Faldita" live with them. They brought the sexiness of the song to life onstage. Shaw also recently premiered the colorful music video for "Faldita" featuring Mau y Ricky.
