Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard has some competition when it comes to elite athletes with music careers.

Chicago White Sox third baseman Yoan Moncada told reporters Tuesday that he’ll use the Latin pop song he recorded over the offseason as his new walk-up music. 

The track, “Desastre Personal,” is certainly a lively pick, but a packed baseball stadium cheering along to Moncada’s song as he strolls to the plate for a White Sox team expected to contend for a World Series this year ups the ante a bit. 

Moncada’s single is available on streaming services, but the music video is worth a watch if only to see the infielder’s dance moves. 

Without question, more baseball players should write their own walk-up songs. Moncada is just ahead of the game.
