For this track I have three separate shoutouts. First off, my parents, as apparently when I was young I was babysat by Hispanic babysitters and all my life I have always been particular to Hispanic and Mexican culture. This led to my learning of un poco de español, I’d know more if I ever actually stopped ghosting the green owl from Duolingo.
I also think it’s what’s led to my recent liking of Bad Bunny, J Balvin and several other Spanish artists. Lastly, I have to shoutout my gym. My local Crunch gym literally is a club. Every time I go in they are bumping some of the best hip-hop, electronic and reggaeton I’ve ever heard. My Google “What is This Song?” button is worn out from all the tunes I’ve searched while working out.
This is the latest from those searches. Between the bumping beat powering the group fitness class in the corner through their HIIT, to the slick sample of Ludacris’ “Saturday” the banger level of “Pakata” is undeniably over 9000.
All this is a long ass way to say, Pakata = muy duro.
Honorable mention: Skrillex, J Balvin – In Da Getto (Henry Fong Remix) and it’s remixes from the recent LP.
