Santana returned the favor in 2001 when he played on the track “Dirty Dancin'” from their first album, Ghetto And Blues. Unfortunately for Product G&B, the album was never released. They were signed to J Records (Santana’s label), who decided not to release the album after putting out 2 singles from it that promptly tanked. Because it costs so much to promote and distribute an album, record companies can cut their losses by refusing to release records that don’t show promise, and the artists are then forced to distribute it through bootlegs or find another record company to pick it up. The unreleased album contained this song. Produced by Wyclef Jean and Jerry Duplessis, who also helped write it. The vocalists, Product G&B, are Wyclef’s protégés. “Maria” is the main character in the play West Side Story. The play is mentioned in the lyrics.

Some of the words are in Spanish, including the chorus. In 2007, Carlos Santana opened a chain of music-themed Mexican restaurants in Northern California called “Maria Maria.” They are named after this song.

Santana – Maria Maria Lyrics

Ladies and gents
turn up your sound system to the
sound of carlos santana and the GMB (Surprada)
Ghetto people- from the Refugee Gang

oh Maria Maria
She reminds me of a west side story
Growing up in Spanish Harlem
She’s living the life just like a movie star

oh Maria Maria
She fell in love in East L.A.
To the sounds of the guitar, yeah, yeah
Played by Carlos Santana

Stop the looting, stop the shooting
Pick pocking on the corner
See as the rich is getting richer
The poorer is getting poorer

See mi y Maria on the corner
Thinking of ways to make it better
In my mailbox there’s an eviction letter
Somebody just said see you later

Ahora vengo mama chula mama chula
Ahora vengo mama chula (east coast)

Ahora vengo mama chula mama chula
Ahora vengo mama chula (west coast )

oh Maria Maria
She reminds me of a west side story
Growing up in Spanish Harlem
She’s living the life just like a movie star

oh Maria Maria
She fell in love in East L.A.
To the sounds of the guitar, yeah, yeah
Played by Carlos Santana

I said a la fella los colores
The streets are getting hotter
There is no water to put out the fire
Mi cosa la esperanza

Se mira Maria on the corner
Thinking of ways to make it better
Then I looked up in the sky
Hoping of days of paradise

Ahora vengo mama chula mama chula
Ahora vengo mama chula (north side)

Ahora vengo mama chula mama chula
Ahora vengo mama chula
(south side)

Ahora vengo mama chula mama chula
Ahora vengo mama chula ( world wide)

Ahora vengo mama chula ( open up ur eyes )

Maria you know you’re my lover
When the wind blows I can feel you
Through the weather and even when we’re apart
It feels like we’re together maria
She reminds me of a west side story
