Two Puerto Rican icons team up for one of this year’s biggest collaborations. Daddy Yankee and Marc Anthony join forces for their music video “De Vuelta Pa’ La Vuelta” that was released today (Dec. 11).
Yankee and Anthony have been teasing the release throughout the week in enigmatic Instagram posts. Together, they join the worlds of reggaetón and salsa music on “De Vuelta Pa’ La Vuelta,” and they are not playing any games with salsa giant Sergio George as the song’s producer.
“Marc is a Latin music icon,” said Daddy Yankee in a statement. “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. This is Salsa de Callejón, Rumba de Barrio with the right touch of elegance to light up Christmas.”
Daddy Yankee and Marc Anthony wrote “De Vuelta Pa’ La Vuelta” with hit-maker Edgar “Edge” Barrera. Both artists trade verses about an ex that has come crawling back. The two genres that Yankee and Anthony proudly represent collide on this scorching kiss-off track. The Nuyorican singer and the Boricua rapper star in the music video that’s a sophisticated affair.
“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,” Anthony said. “Now with this song, we have the opportunity to unite our voices, highlight our culture, and honor our Latino roots.”
