Daddy Yankee Teases “Con Calma” Remix Featuring Katy Perry
Edit: The post has been update with a streaming link for the song. As expected, it’s an instantly addictive, sing-along smash. Listen below.
Madonna isn’t the only pop superstar embracing international beats music this week. Katy Perry has also succumbed to the so-called Latin craze by jumping on the remix of Daddy Yankee’s “Con Calma.” The irresistible bop, which heavily samples Snow’s “Informer,” is shaping up to be something of an international phenomenon. It has already topped the charts in 17 countries and recently cracked the top 50 on the Billboard Hot 100. Expect the banger’s list of achievements to grow even longer when Katy’s version drops.
Daddy Yankee shared a snippet of the remix on Instagram (below) and it sounds insane. Katy rides the reggaeton beat with ease while the veteran rapper ad-libs in the background. An official release date hasn’t been announced yet, but fans are speculating that it will arrive tonight. Given the teaser, that’s a fairly safe bet. If not, then it’s a definite contender for New Music Friday. Let’s hope “Con Calma” gets a better reception than the rudely slept-on “365.”
