As Ivy Queen's fan base continued to grow, she attracted Sasha who invited her to record the song. According to Murray Elias of VP Records: "Ivy Queen is kind of rough and Sasha has a more feminine, playful approach, so those two styles blend well, this could be a breakthrough record for Ivy Queen, where you see the Jamaican market embracing the reggaetón vibe."
