DADDY YANKEE KNOWS what it takes for a Latin music to interrupt the charts. And when Myke Towers confirmed him his new music “Ulala,” which dropped on Thanksgiving, Yankee understood its “world hit” potential.
Whereas working with the identical producers on their albums, Towers — who was featured on Legendaddy‘s “Pasatiempo” — determined to indicate the reggaetón legend his tropical-tinged pop music to see what he would suppose.
“[My producers] Play-n-Skillz had been engaged on Daddy Yankee’s album similtaneously they had been engaged on mine, so in certainly one of these back-and-forth cellphone tags, Daddy Yankee advised me he wished me to hop on certainly one of his songs, and I made a decision to indicate him ‘Ulala,’” Towers tells Rolling Stone. “Daddy Yankee is aware of a world hit when he hears it and he may hear the worldwide sound on the music, similar to I did.”
Like within the Mike Ho-directed video, the music has a beachside vibe as Towers sings about “having fun with the second” as he meets a gorgeous woman he is aware of he seemingly gained’t see once more.
“Mami rica/Ulala/No se cuanto durará/Yo se que nadie como tú lo haré/Se luce si la veo bailar,” Towers sings earlier than Yankee joins in his signature model. (In English: “Mami rica/Ulala/I don’t understand how lengthy this final/I do know that nobody like you are able to do it like that/She exhibits off once I see her dance.”)
“Ulala” marks certainly one of Towers’ first songs working with Play-n-Skillz, the Latin Grammy-winning manufacturing duo that has labored with the likes of Natanael Cano, Pitbull, and Lil Wayne.
“In one of many studio periods, the ‘Ulala’ beat was the primary music they performed me,” Towers says. “The method was one thing magical: the music got here collectively in a short time and easily, one thing troublesome to elucidate, virtually as if the rhythm was already telling me what to write down.”
“Ulala” is the third music that Towers and Yankee have made collectively, after “Pasatiempo,” and final yr’s “Súbele el Volumen” with Jhayco. “Ulala” is ready to be featured on Towers’ upcoming album, titled Michael.
“It’s a very private album. It exhibits all the things I can do,” Towers advised Rolling Stone earlier this yr, including how a lot turning into a father in 2020 has influenced his strategy to his profession: “Every thing I’m doing isn’t even for me anymore. It’s all about [my son].”
