Over a year since the arrival of her smash hit single, "Hrs & Hrs," Muni Long continues to find new ways to reimagine the same track. At the end of January, the singer-songwriter shared the Spanish version. It's titled "Horas y Horas," and recently landed alongside a new track exclusively on Spotify.

As Vibe reports, The Avila Brothers reimagined the production, which finds the vocalist asking "¿Pero te puedo cantar…en español?" or, "But can I sing to you... in Spanish?" as the sultry music begins.

Later on she continues with lyrics like, "Lo tuyo, es mío, ahora / Puedo hacer esto por horas," and "Sentar y hablarte aquí por horas / Regalarte unas rosas."

The new take of "Hrs & Hrs" finally arrived alongside "Superstar" a few days ago. The latter finds Long once again sharing her beautiful voice – this time in English.

"Don't you remember you told me you love me baby? / You said you'll be coming back this way again, baby," she floats over the chorus. "I love you / I really do."

Thus far, both tracks have received a primarily positive audience reaction. Seeing listeners gush over the Spanish version isn't entirely surprising, seeing as the original single was nominated for both Best R&B Song and Performance at the upcoming 2023 Grammy Awards.

Additionally, Long also earned a nod for Best New Artist alongside names like Latto, Tobe Nwigwe, and Måneskin, just to name a few.

While she's best known by her stage name, Muni's real name is Pricilla Renea. Speaking with Billboard, she explained how she finds the difference between those two identities.

"I think I was so unaware as Priscilla, I was just doing stuff. As Muni Long, I’m aware, I’m intentional. I took two years off between my last project that I put out as Priscilla to when I started my label [Supergiant] from 2018 to 2020," she recalled.

"As Muni, I really put on about 15 different hats and I compartmentalize. And I just chipped away at the tree and started building this world totally different, like night and day. It literally was like a reset."

Quotable Lyrics:

Lo tuyo, es mío, ahora
Puedo hacer esto por horas
Sentar y hablarte aquí por horas
Regalarte unas rosas
