"Me niego" ("I refuse") is a song by Mexican band Reik featuring Puerto Rican singers Ozuna and Wisin. It was released as a single on February 16, 2018.[1] The song was written by Reik members Jesús Navarro, Julio Ramírez, Gilberto Marín Espinoza, as well as Ozuna, Wisin, and the "Legendarios" duo Christian Linares and Víctor Torres.[1] The song has topped the charts in Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Mexico.

"Me niego" marks the first time that Reik has recorded a reggaeton song, as they are famous for their pop rock ballads.[2] Also, the song is the first by the band to enter the Billboard Hot 100.[3]

Background and release[edit]

According to Reik's lead singer Jesús Navarro, "[he] was one of those people who are afraid of change",[2] and he stated that "as Pop artists, we should learn from Urban singers, they're always helping each other, without envy or anything like that".[2] Fellow member Gilberto Marín commented that "Sometimes, experimenting with different things and styles will take us away from what people would expect from us, what Reik usually does, but at the same time it defines that our sound is more universal".[2]

As Reik's members were working on the song, Ozuna heard it and wanted to participate on it, as did Wisin later on.[4]

Music video[edit]

The music video for the song, directed by Nuno Gómez, was shot in Miami, Florida, US.[1] It was released on February 16, 2018.
