"Hey Ma" is a song recorded by American rapper Pitbull and Colombian singer J Balvin, taken from the soundtrack of the 2017 action film The Fate of the Furious (2017), featuring vocals from Cuban-American singer Camila Cabello. It was written by the artists along with Sermstyle, Tinashe Sibanda, Philip Kembo, Soaky Siren and Johnny Yukon, and produced by Sermstyle, T-Collar, Pip Kembo and Yukon. Vocals were produced by Matt Beckley. Originally, the song was scheduled to be a collab between Pitbull, Britney Spears and Romeo Santos, but Spears and Santos were replaced by Cabello and Balvin, respectively.[1] There are two versions of the song; one in Spanish and one in English.

Critical reception[edit]

In Billboard, Spotify editors named the song as a "steamy single" and highlighted Cabello's "fitting charm".[2]

Commercial performance[edit]

"Hey Ma" debuted at number five on the Hot Latin Songs chart with 14,000 downloads sold, marking Pitbull's highest debut ever on the chart and matching Balvin's previous best, with "Ginza". The song also marks Cabello's first entry on the chart.[3]

Music video[edit]

The accompanying music video for "Hey Ma" was shot in Miami. As described by Billboard, the "spicy" video is filled with "bright and vivid" scenes representing the Cuban culture as the trio move around the streets interacting with the crowd and dancing in front of "impressive" cars. Scenes from The Fate of the Furious appear in the music video.[4]

Live performances[edit]

Balvin, Cabello and Pitbull performed the first televised performance of the song at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards.[5] Griselda Flores from Billboard magazine said that "The trio heated things up when they took the stage to perform the upbeat track", and praised their looks by saying: "Cabello stepped into a strapless, flower-printed red dress wearing it over black shorts that peeked through the dress' front slit. Pitbull and J Balvin complemented Cabello's look by rocking all-black outfits: Balvin in a casual denim pants and leather jacked combo and Mr. 305 in a fitted suit".[6]
