"Papito ven a mí"

"Papi Chulo... te traigo el mmmm" is a 2003 song recorded by rapper and reggaeton artist Lorna. Released as her debut single the summer of 2003, the song achieved huge success in many countries, becoming a top five hit in France, the Netherlands, Belgium and Italy.

Song information[edit]

Sponsored by NRJ, the song also features as a B-side on Lorna's second single, "Papito ven a mí". In the refrains, the singer can be heard sighing in a sexual manner.

In the music video itself, Lorna performs a suggestive dance while singing.

In France, the single went to number 46 on July 20, 2003. It climbed quickly and reached the top ten three weeks later. It finally topped the chart for a sole week, and managed a total of 14 weeks in the top ten and 20 weeks on the chart. It fell off the chart after being at #25 probably because the song was available on the singer's next single then released.[1] As of August 2014, it was the 59th best-selling single of the 21st century in France, with 364,000 units sold.[2]

A Pakistani cover version of the song has also been released with Urdu lyrics sung by popular Makrani singer Younis Jani.[3]This song gained popularity in Pakistan in 2003.

In Italy, the song title and the song itself have been widely used in political satire; "papi" (daddy) is one of the nicknames of Silvio Berlusconi, first used by Noemi Letizia, a girl involved in one of the many sexual scandals of the Italian Prime Minister. "Chulo", other than meaning "pimp" in Spanish, sounds like "ciùlo", an Italian slang term for the sexual act.[4]
