Singer Camila Cabello has further deepened the nod to her roots in “Havana” by releasing a remix that’s primarily in Spanish.
This time around the Cuban-American songstress has recruited Puerto Rican singer and rapper Daddy Yankee in lieu of the track’s original featured artist, Young Thug. The song’s same infectious backdrop, courtesy of Pharrell and Frank Dukes, is present as the chorus maintains its original form in English.
The first 15 seconds with Daddy Yankee sounds like he’s saying the world’s longest word and it’s lit #HavanaRemix— H. (@mijacabello97) November 12, 2017
Notably, “Havana” has done its best overseas, managing to earn Gold and Platinum certifications in other countries that include Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom, but not having much to show in sales in the United States as far as unit sales go.
This new version serves as perfect ode to the international community from which Cabello has garnered support since her departure from the Fifth Harmony singing group.
He took me back to East Atlanta, na-na-na
All of my heart is in Havana
There's somethin' 'bout his manners
Havana, ooh na-na
