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.
DJ Snake has hinted at a new album coming later this year. It would be the follow-up to his 2016 album Encore, featuring Justin Bieber and Skrillex, which debuted at number 8 on the Billboard 200.
