Background and releaseEdit

"Otra Cosa" was written by Daddy Yankee, Natti Natasha, and Egbert "Haze" Rosa, and was produced by Puerto Rican Latin Grammy Award-winner producer Haze.[1] The concept of the song was conceived by Haze, who brought the idea to Daddy Yankee, who wrote the chorus, his verse, and made the arrangements.[2] The single was released on digital stores on December 9, 2016 by Pina Records with distribution by Sony Music Latin.[3] It was originally released as part of Pina Records' upcoming various artists album La Súper Fórmula but Daddy Yankee managed to also include it on his upcoming studio album El Disco Duro.[2][4]

CompositionEdit

"Otra Cosa" is a reggaeton, dancehall, and moombahton song with a length of three minutes and twenty-eight seconds.[2][5] The lyrics are about lovesickness.[2] Natti Natasha stated that the story "is a bit complicated for women, because I know that both men and women will understand because they are things that happen on a daily basis, but this time we had the opportunity to express it in a song."[2][4] She added that "not always what seems to be good and elegant is good for love" and described the song as about "toxic love."[6][5] Daddy Yankee expressed that "I think that when you find the balance between man and woman in a subject, I think that everyone can identify. This time I have to be, as always in love, the bad guy."[2]

Music videoEdit

The music video for "Otra Cosa" was directed by Luieville & Company.[6] Filming took place in Miami in November 2016.[2][4] The visual premiered through Daddy Yankee's YouTube account on January 27, 2017.[6][7]
