Songfacts®:

  • This song samples the beat of the Yolanda Be Cool hit "We No Speak Americano," which Pitbull's A&R right hand man, DJ Buddha, first heard in Europe, well before it was being played on US radio.
  • Pitbull told Billboard magazine: "Why call it 'Bon, Bon'? Because that's [what we call] a beautiful woman [in Spanish]."
  • Pitbull refers to the three Latin lovers in Lady Gaga's song "Alejandro," when he raps, "I'm not Alejandro, Roberto or Fernando. I'm Armando."
