Forget "The Electric Slide" and "The Macarena." There is a new dance craze in town thanks to three Spanish sisters known as "Las Ketchup." The trio's first single "The Ketchup Song" off their debut CD "Hijas Del Tomate" (Daughters of Tomate) is burning up dance charts and dance floors all over the world.

Lola, Lucia and Pilar Munoz visit The Early Show to sing their smash song and teach us the new dance.

"The Ketchup Song (Hey Hah)," is an International sensation reaching No.1 in Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. It has knocked Eminem from the No.1 slot on the European Music and Media single sales chart, which represents all of Europe combined.

Already No. 1 in Mexico, it is charting Latin markets. Now it is beginning to take over the American airwaves. First picked up by WKTU in New York, the song quickly became the station's No.1 most requested and No. 5 most played and is sweeping American radio coast to coast.

Born and raised in a Spanish region noted for its Andalucsian traditions, including flamenco and bullfighting, Lola, Lucia and Pilar have created an infectious highly original sound combining elements of Spanish rumba, Latin pop, Jamaican reggae, and old school hip-hop.

The song's chorus takes its lyrics from the 1979 old school rap classic "Rapper's Delight" by the Sugarhill Gang.

"The Ketchup Song" tells the story of Diego, a young fashion-conscious gypsy with Rastafarian leanings who loves dancing and hip-hop and sings his own Andalusian rap: "Asereje' ja de je de jebe tu de jebere seibiunouva/Majavi an de bugui an de buididipi/Asereje' ja de je' de jebe tu de jebere seibiunouva/Majavi an de bugui an de buididipi/Asereje'..."

Lola, Lucia and Pilar Munoz are the daughters of Tomate, a renowned traditional flamenco guitarist from Cordoba, Spain.
