BackgroundEdit

Fonsi wrote a song with "a lot of feeling" and wanted a voice with a "perfect balance between urban and melodic", so he chose Ozuna.[2] Fonsi stated that he wished to collaborate with Ozuna because he is "incredibly talented, has great vocals and great writing".[1]

CompositionEdit

The song is a "romantic urban tune" dedicated to women, from the point of view of a man.[1][2] HotNewHipHop stated the track has the sound and potential to be a "'Despacito type single".[3] El Mundo called the song a ballad mixed with reggaeton, and similar to Fonsi's other "songs of this style that were characterized by their romantic lyrics and deep phrases".[4]

Music videoEdit

The music video was directed by Carlos Perez and filmed at a train station in Miami in September 2018,[2] with Fonsi confirming this on Instagram.[4]
