  • Here, Steve Aoki collaborates on this Spanish-language track with reggaeton singer Daddy Yankee, merengue-pop artist Elvis Crespo and Texas hip-hop and electronica producers Play-N-Skillz.

    "We had been in communication with Steve Aoki about at some point doing a Latin inspired record," Play-N-Skillz recalled to Billboard magazine. "We were in studio with Daddy Yankee working on his project when our publicist tells us Elvis Crespo wanted to come by. We mentioned it to Yankee and I suggested doing a mega collab, with all of us. I face-timed Steve with Daddy Yankee in the room with us and we told him the idea for the song. He loved it and we went after it. Elvis came to the studio that night and we all started vibing to the track right away. The lyrics and melody just flowed, and within a few hours we had the song."
  • The track combines the purer style of EDM that Steve Aoki favoured in his early career with Latin music. "That song is the culmination of years and years of being involved with the Latin world," Aoki told The Independent. "Latin has been a big influence on me for a long time. I've worked with other Latin artists but yet strangely enough, I had yet to do a Latin EDM record. It's the first entirely Spanish-sung record of mine that I've put out."
