His best example? “Todo De Ti,” which the Puerto Rican-born artist admits was the last song to make it on Vice Versa.
“The album is incredible but the more I heard it, I felt like something was missing. That’s when ‘Todo de Ti’ was born,” he says, getting inspired from old-school sounds like funk and disco. “The most important thing in my music is the melodies. I began vibing in the studio with my producer Mr. Nais Gai and when I found the perfect melody, that’s when I began writing the concept of the song. I was so excited about the track that we finished it in two days.”
Also a phenomenon on TikTok with over one million video creations, “Todo de Ti” currently sits at No. 45 on Billboard’s all-genre Hot 100 chart. It also entered the Hot Latin Songs, Latin Airplay, Global 200, and Global Excl. U.S. charts.
“It’s a totally different proposal and I took a risk,” he says.
Vice Versa contains only three reggaeton songs, two collaborations (one with Anitta and his longtime friend, Lyanno), and the rest, a rollercoaster of new fusions, best representing his album’s cover.
He explains the production was created between 2020 and 2021 and that he began working on it just two weeks after finalizing his debut set, Afrodisiaco. He also mentions that his entire team — which has been by his side since the beginning of his career — fully supported and respected the route he wanted to take in Vice Versa.
