This is a collaboration with Cuban American actor and musician JenCarlos Canela, who wrote the song and took it to Pitbull, who raps the verses over it. The I Know You Want Me
artist explained to Billboard
magazine why he hooked up with Canela: "It's the Cuban connection. Me and [fellow Cuban] Jencarlos Canela ran into each other in Puerto Rico, during the Billboard awards. And he was telling me he was a Miami boy, Cuban, big fan, and I said, 'coño let's get together.' And a couple of months later he came, he brought over the track, and I just added the verses."
