The urban music star daddy yankee joined the Puerto Rican Mike Towers on the single “Ulala”, “a contagious reggaeton with touches of dancehall” and that aspires to become the “next global hit”, the Warner Music Latina record company reported this Friday.
The single, released in time for the long weekend in the US for the Thanksgiving holiday, consists of “a mesmerizing and contagious melody” that shows the “versatility as an artist and performer” of Mike Towers, according to the Miami-based label.
The song, which represents the third collaboration between the two Puerto Rican artists (in the first two cases they were songs by Daddy Yankee), It was produced by the American duo Play-n-Skillz, and the video was recorded on the beaches of Miami Beach, in South Florida, USA.
“Daddy Yankee knows a global hit when he hears it, and he could hear the global sound in the song, just like I did.” Towers told Rolling Stone magazine about how the reggaeton star joined in participating in the single, which was recorded in San Juan, the capital of the Caribbean island.
The collaboration between the two arose while each one was working on their respective albums, in both cases under the production of Play-n-Skillz, as he told Towers magazine.
The reggaeton singer, nominated four times for a Latin Grammy, previously participated in the single “Pasatiempo” by Daddy Yankee, included in the Puerto Rican’s seventh studio album, “Legendaddy”, released this year.
“Ulala”, which stands in some contrast to previous songs by Mike Towers, which were more in the trap line, will be part of his next studio album, tentatively named “Michael” and has no release date yet.
