Songfacts®:

  • This is the first English language song to be released by bachata singer Prince Royce. (Bachata, the traditional music of the Dominican Republic is normally sung in Spanish). "It's a whole new vibe, a whole new swag, a whole new animal," he told Billboard magazine. "But when I hear myself, I think it sounds like me; it's just not a me that they've heard before."
  • The song features a verse by Snoop Dogg. "As soon as I heard the track, it took me back to New York and the Bronx and the urban vibe," Prince Royce said. "And from the beginning, I could hear Snoop doing it. So we reached out and it was amazing how fast he jumped on the track, and when I heard the verse it was exactly how I pictured it."
  • The music video was shot in Los Angeles with director Colin Tilley [Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda"]. The clip shows Royce riding on an elevator that gets stuck. Suddenly, "it's a whole new world," he explained. "We don't know if I'm dreaming or not,. In the last floor I meet up with Snoop Dogg. There's choreography, there's dancing. It's a beautiful video. It's definitely a big-budget video."
