Composition[edit]

Daddy Yankee stated that the song "is the story of a lovesick woman who no longer trusts her relationships. On the contrary, her mission is now to avenge herself through the frustration of all those men she decides to be. She always has doubts. She wants to fall in love, but she does not do it because of that memory that was captured on her. We wanted to highlight the well-calculated side of women."[7]
