“My Trumpet” was written shortly after one of my all time favorite performances at the Boom Boom Room on top of the Standard Hotel in NYC. The room was packed and everyone was dressed their best hence the lyric “top to bottom fancy, shining like a Gatsby”. There were so many people there that night that I had to perform on top of the bar and the energy was so electric that it kept me high for days. My co-writers on this song Corey Chorus and producer Ikenna FuNkEn were also there that night and when we got into the studio we wanted to try and capture that moment and put it into a song. As we reflected on all of the imagery from that night our goal was to also write my official anthem and since Mexico City is my largest and most loyal fan base I felt that a Mexican rap feature would be the perfect compliment to the track, which is how MC Davo ended up on the song and he nailed it.

Lyrics

(MC DAVO VERSE)
LA FIESTA EMPIEZA
HAY MÁS DE UNA TRAVIESA
NOS PONEMOS A BAILAR CON LA QUE SE ATRAVIESA UN TRAGO DE CERVEZA Y A MOVER LA CABEZA

LO QUÉ PASÓ PASÓ YA NO ME INTERESA

MUCHOS ME TIRAN Y NINGUNO ME ATINA
YO SIGO RELAJADO AQUÍ BEBIÉNDOME UN TEQUILA SOMOS LOS QUE NO HACEN FILA
EN EL ANTRO Y EN LA CANTINA
Y SI TU NOVIO TE PREGUNTA TE QUEDASTE SIN PILA

MY TRUMPET’LL GET YOU STARTED TURN U INTO A MARDI GRAS
MAKE U WANNA TOUCH UR BODY FORCE U TO ROCK THE PARTY NOW, LIKE OOH OOH OOH, OH OH OH OOH OOH OOH
MY TRUMPET’LL GET YOU STARTED
