Songfacts®:

  • This song was written by Pitbull for Dr Pepper's 2011 Hispanic marketing campaign. Pitbull told Billboard magazine: "The beauty of it I think is showing how major corporations want to be involved with people whose last names are Gutiérrez, Pérez, etc. Names than end with a z. The cool thing is, when I was a kid, Dr. Pepper was my favorite."
  • The DJ Snake and Clinton Sparks produced song features the model and actress Nayer, who was previously in the video for Pitbull's "I Know You Want Me," wearing a police uniform.
