"Llamado de Emergencia" (English: "Emergency Call") is the second single by Puerto Rican reggaeton artist Daddy Yankee from the soundtrack to the motion picture Talento de Barrio, released on September 23, 2008, by El Cartel Records. It is the third released promo single and second official single.

As part of Daddy Yankee's goal to experiment with different latin musical styles, the song is a fusion of reggaeton and even Colombian styles of vallenato.[1]

Music video[edit]

The music video features Daddy Yankee waiting in a car, with his soon-to-be next single, "¿Qué Tengo Que Hacer?" playing. A woman shows up to his car, the woman and him start having an argument in a car. Soon afterwards, Yankee pulls out and gets into a car crash, leaving fatal injuries on the woman. It is soon reported to 9-1-1, leaving Yankee to only reminisce about the memories he has of the woman and himself spending time together, later going to her funeral seeing her in a chair, crying. He then goes to see the body, and it is revealed he is the one who has died. Remembering everything, he awakes in the car that he was at the start, with the woman coming up to the car. The video was directed by Luis Enrique. The video is one of Daddy Yankee's most viewed video on YouTube so far, as of May 17, 2012 it has 59,586,354 views.[2]
