Two global music icons, Daddy Yankee and Marc Anthony unite their voices to release “De vuelta pa’ la vuelta,” a track fusing classic salsa with reggaeton beats, producing for the first time ever a historic and unexpected collaboration. The single and video, distributed by El Cartel Records/UMG, is available now on all digital music platforms.
“De Vuelta pa’ la vuelta” was produced by Latin GRAMMY® winner, acclaimed pianist and Puerto Rican producer, Sergio George. The song was written by Daddy Yankee, Marc Anthony and Edgar Barrera.
“One of my dreams…was to record salsa like back in ‘La Fania’ days. One of the greatest experiences and satisfaction for an artist is to record with someone they listen to and have on their playlist. Marc is a Latin music icon. To have the honor to enter his musical world and be part of that magic was always on my “bucket list”, I’ve wanted to show a musical side that not very many people know about, and what better way to do that than hand in hand with a legendary producer like Sergio George and a powerhouse like Marc. The vision was to bring something refreshing, to be able to fuse the world of salsa with the essence of reggaeton and at the same time give the song it’s own identity. This is Salsa de Callejón, Rumba de Barrio with the right touch of elegance to light up Christmas,” expressed Daddy Yankee.
“It’s been a long time since we’ve wanted to work together. It was such an experience to see Yankee dive into my world. He is a force to be reckoned that has set so many precedents in the Latin music scene. Now with this song, we have the opportunity to unite our voices, highlight our culture and honor our Latino roots,” expressed Latin music icon, Marc Anthony.
Recently, Yankee celebrated the one-year anniversary of his historic concert residency in Puerto Rico, “Con Calma Pal Choli,” which took place in the iconic Coliseo de Puerto Rico José Miguel Agrelot between the dates of December 5-29, 2019, selling out a record 12 shows.
