Song to Debut as Part of ESPN’s Monday Night Baseball Global Game Telecast Tonight – May 9
ESPN has teamed up with popular Reggaeton recording artists Alexis & Fido for a special musical collaboration during the 2016 Major League Baseball season. Alexis & Fido’s song ‘Si No Tiene El Swing’ will be incorporated into various ESPN MLB production elements, beginning tonight, Monday, May 9, as part of ESPN’s Monday Night Baseball Global Game telecast: Washington Nationals vs. Detroit Tigers (7 p.m. ET).
‘Si No Tiene El Swing,’ which features vocals from up-and-coming singer Eli Jas, will serve as an integral part of ESPN’s cross-platform MLB game and studio coverage throughout the season, including on ESPN Deportes, Baseball Tonight, and Beisbol Esta Noche.
“The collaboration with Alexis & Fido has been a wonderful process,” said Kevin Wilson, ESPN music director. “We had the idea to create a Reggaeton version of the classic record ‘It Don’t Mean A Thing.’ We contacted the guys and they were totally down to do it since they are big MLB fans.”
