Taki Taki by Frenchman DJ Snake featuring American singer Selena Gomez, Puertorican artist Ozuna and American rapper Cardi B is the newest international reggeaton club banger. DJ Snake is known worldwide for global hits like "Turn down for what" and "Let me love you",
During a banner year for EDM and Latin pop collaborations, DJ Snake is the latest producer to connect with artists of the Latin American music diaspora. “I wanted to make a reggaeton hit,” During a recent interview the Grammy award winning DJ initially sent the track to Ozuna, but says he decided last-minute to add a feminine touch.
“Ozuna crushed it,” DJ Snake explained, “but I wanted more females on the record” — thus prompting him to enlist Latina pop queens Cardi B and Selena Gomez for the track. The result is an effervescent burst of personalities — Puerto Rican heartthrob Ozuna flaunts his swagger in Spanish, while both Cardi B and Gomez light it up with bilingual witticisms of their own. DJ Snake first teased the collaboration in August, by tweeting a photo of four directors’ chairs — plus a tiny chair for Cardi B’s daughter, Kulture — with the stars’ names sewn on them.
Released three days ago, the song has already garnered 13 million views on YouTube and has started getting airplay in Kenya.
