Karol G has partnered with Panamanian rapper Aldo Ranks for an incredible new collaboration that will leave you dancing the night away. Their latest single, “Watati,” encapsulates their desire to let loose and enjoy the moment.
“Daddy, let’s go to the disco to have a good time. A lot of smoke, it smells good, getting dizzy,” sings Karol passionately in Spanish during her verse.
The release of “Watati” is part of the highly anticipated Barbie: The Album, which serves as the soundtrack for the upcoming Barbie movie. Produced by the talented Mark Ronson, the soundtrack boasts fresh music from Ice Spice, Nicki Minaj, Tame Impala, and many other notable artists.
For Karol, having a reggaeton song featured on the soundtrack of such an anticipated film is a significant milestone. In a recent interview with W, she expressed her joy in witnessing the growth and representation of reggaeton and Latin music within the industry. “It has been very challenging to earn respect in this industry,” she shared. “Now I’m incredibly happy to see the movement flourish and reach a point where women are representing and asserting, ‘We have our own stories to tell. We have different situations and moods. We are good girls, bad girls, boss girls.‘”
