Pitbull, Gloria Estefan, Wisin Team Up for Star-Studded “We’re All Mexican” Music Video.

You might not experience it much if you rarely leave Miami-Dade County, but there are certain paler parts of America where they just assume that anyone with a Latino-looking complexion is Mexican.Hispanic Heritage Month started last Tuesday, so it couldn’t be a better time to release a wonderfully catchy and upbeat song that also promotes awareness about unity.

It’s also in these parts of the country where you’re more likely to find people jumping on the wave of Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant rhetoric-fueled presidential campaign. The music power-couple tapped several of their friends to participate — including Carlos Santana, Pitbull, Thalia, Wyclef Jean, Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas, Banda El Recodo, Carlos Vives, Angelica Maria, and of course Gloria as well, among others. Well, Emilio Estefan took notice of all this and got a little concerned, so he decided to call in a bunch of his famous friends to record a song called “We’re All Mexican.” Though, it’s not exactly a Donald Trump dis track. The video also features celebrities such as Kathy Griffin, Whoopi Goldberg, Amaury Nolasco, Eva Longoria, Carlos Ponce, Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias, and Kate Del Castillo. Oh yeah, and if you peek around 2:08, you’ll see a friendly, familiar face too! “As immigrants, we have a love and appreciation for this country and for the freedom that it represents.

This track features verses and cameos from tons of Latino celebs including Pitbull, Wisin, Gloria Estefan, Carlos Santana, Rita Moreno, Thalia, guacamole, and even that chihuahua from YouTube who dances on his hind legs to salsa music. Archive footage of Latin icons like Celia Cruz and Desi Arnaz is also featured. “There seems to be a resentment, a certain hate (towards Latinos),” Emilio Estefan told Univision News in an interview last night before debuting the video this morning. “Latinos have accomplished a lot, we have to send a message to the entire world that we’re united.” “It’s not about him. It’s about everything I’ve seen around him,” he said. “The song celebrates the positive contributions of immigrants in the United States as a balance to the negativity being expressed publicly.”
