When Rauw Alejandro shared his excellent album Saturno last year, it included a few seconds of spacey noise and distortion as its seventh track, titled "LOADING." You may have reasonably mistaken it for an interlude, but today Rauw shares the real song, a Daddy Yankee collaboration called "PANTIES Y BRASIERES." Bawdy and instantly fun, the song samples Yankee's 2007 track "Camuflash" and contains a lyrical allusion to his global hit "Rompe."
Alejandro kept up the reverence of Daddy Yankee during an interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music 1 promoting the new song. "Daddy Yankee for me means Reggaeton himself," Alejandro said. "He was one of the first artists who put that type of genre outside the island, around the world, with his biggest hit, 'Gasolina.' Even in China, Japan, they were dancing to his songs. So it's like he helped to support and put more big Latin music in the Reggaeton culture. And for me, it means as a Puerto Rican, I feel really, really proud."
