Originally Released In 1967, The Pete Rodriguez Masterpiece Includes
Timeless Tropical Anthem “I Like It Like That”
Released by Alegre Records in 1967, this was the fifth album by pianist and bandleader Pete Rodriguez. Marking the heyday of the Latin boogaloo movement in New York, the title track became the genre’s anthem and one of the most iconic dance hits in the history of Latin American music.
“I Like It Like That” was sampled and served as the basis for the global mega-hit “I Like It,” released in 2018 by Cardi B with Bad Bunny and J Balvin.
Today, Craft Latino releases a remix of “I Like It Like That” by DJ Uproot Andy, which updates the original’s timeless mystique through the use of contemporary beats to create a rump shakin’ dance floor burner.
Fania also features Pete Rodriguez and other Latin boogaloo artists in a new playlist, Boogaloo – Fania Essentials.
