The Colombian artist expressed that she and the Puerto Rican salsa singer connected via direct message on Instagram. “She invited me to a song that she’s going to release,” Goyo explains. “It was very exciting for me because she’s, after Celia Cruz, she’s a reference for me. I see her as a woman who can sit on the salsa throne. She’s like a legend.”
Goyo, who also noted that the music video was filmed in Puerto Rico with “lots of Boricua talent,” said the song is a tropical and hip-hop fusion. “It’s about female empowerment and removing the dark clouds from our life,” she adds. “I know everyone will enjoy it.”
