Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from Euphoria, which is Latin singer Enrique Iglesias' first bilingual album. The song features Senegalese-American R&B singer-songwriter Akon, who also co-wrote the tune along with Iglesias, producer RedOne and Frankie Storm.
  • Akon entered the mix after he stopped by the studio to visit and asked if he could record vocals. Iglesias told MTV News: "The Akon thing was spontaneous. He was like, 'Can I jump on ["One Day at a Time"]?' "
  • Iglesias confessed to Sigal Ratner-Arias of the Associated Press: "It was one of the most difficult for me. It is a song that I wrote with RedOne a few times because I wasn't happy with the melody. I didn't get it right until the third time!"
