It’s the battle of the superstar-assisted, bilingual remixes! Daddy Yankee and Katy Perry join forces on a bilingual version of “Con Calma,” while Pedro Capó and Farruko team up with Alicia Keys for their “Calma” remix. While the titles are similar, the songs are completely different. For starters, “Calma” has already been a hit twice. Pedro’s original topped the charts around Latin America in 2018… and then did it all over again when Farruko jumped on the remix. Don’t be surprised if it happens for a third time.

A love letter to Puerto Rica, “Calma” is a summery bop with a tropical twist. Alicia brings a bit more soul to the anthem, which has already racked up 1.5 billion streams, and adds a feminine perspective. It’s been a while since the “In Common” hitmaker has troubled the charts, so it would nice if this takes off. Which looks all but inevitable. It has already cracked the Billboard Hot 100 via Spotify streams and should soar a lot higher when radio jumps on board.

“Hearing that Alicia Keys liked the song, and wanted to join us on Calma is an honor and blessing that really transcends what I can put into words,” Pedro says of the unexpected collaboration. “She’s one of the most talented artists in the world, and someoneI’ve respected her for a long time. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with her, and grateful for her coming to Puerto Rico to help further spotlight our home.” Watch the feel-good video below.
