    • Violin samples Dvořák's "9th Symphony New World (4th Movement)"
    • It has been wildly misattributed the song Jump & Spread Out to a remix to Zion & Lennox's song "Yo Voy" featuring Daddy Yankee, since they contribute to this song with some lyrics parts of their own song. The song has also been alternately titled "¿Dónde Están Las Mamis?" from their Motivando a la Yal: Special Edition CD.
