Arcángel recorded "La Jumpa" for his trap album Señor Santos
. Bad Bunny had come up with the idea for the song while on the road in Latin America with his World's Hottest Tour. Bunny sent him the song from Peru after Arcángel had completed the other tracks.
"Remember that he's on tour and it's very difficult for him to go to a music studio, so he had to send someone to look for a studio," Arcángel told Billboard
. "He sent me the song, we recorded the same day, and three, four days passed in which we sent back and he listened."
