Songfacts®:

  • This is the first single from the Puerto Rican reggaetón artist Daddy Yankee's ninth studio album, Daddy Yankee Mundial. The English translation of the song title is "Shout Out Worldwide."
  • The celebratory song was for a time expected to be the official anthem for the 2010 FIFA World Cup but Shakira's Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) was eventually chosen instead. This song, loaded with trumpets and whistles, does sound like a sports anthem.
  • The official music video was filmed in late October 2009 in Argentina, when Boca Juniors and Chacarita were playing a football game. Halftime was lengthened to complete the filming.
  • Daddy Yankee said the album title, "reflects my experiences lived in all promotional trips, in summary, Daddy Yankee Mundial is an album with a great musical variety where The Street joins The World."
