Please do enjoy “Chongalicious,” a video by a pair of Hialeah girls who are either chongas themselves or do more than passable impressions of the young Latinas with “hoop earrings big enough to fit your arm through.” The song turned up on YouTube recently, and is picking up steam. Miami’s Power 96 started playing “Chongalicious” yesterday, and it soon became the station’s most requested. --Frank Houston

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
