The song was co-written and produced by Rico Love who is responsible for penning such hits as Beyoncé's "Sweet Dreams
," Kelly Rowland's "Motivation
," as well as Usher's own "There Goes My Baby
." However, this marked Love's first foray into bachata music. He told The Boombox
: "I had just educated myself on what it was being that I live in Miami and the group Aventura is so big and the Spanish market is big in Miami. It's my first experience like that. I had worked with Shakira but, you know, we did a few ideas and nothing really surfaced. This is my first actual pairing and for the record to go #1 (in the Latin chart) is amazing."
