Puerto Rican reggaeton icon Don Omar joined forces with Akon for a second time to release the single, "Good Girl." The first collaboration they did was the remix of Don Omar's famous track "Danza Kuduro."
"I am living one of the most creative and productive stages of my career. After taking a break, I am making the music I want and with figures I always wanted to collaborate with. For that and much more, I am blessed," Don Omar said in a press release.
The video for "Good Girl" was directed by Carlos Perez and filmed in Miami and shows the story of a "good girl" and a "bad girl" dancing.
"And she's a good girl trapped in a bad world/And if you ask her, she'll tell you the same thing," Akon sings on the song's chorus. "She says she's a good girl turned bad girl/caught in a bad world," he adds.
Don Omar told Rolling Stone that he is more "than grateful to have collaborated with Akon."
"I've always been a fan of his music and his style. Even though we come from very different cultures, music can break down those barriers," the artist said.
According to the magazine, Akon is one of the artists who has collaborated the most with Spanish-language singers in the industry. He participated in Enrique Iglesias' song "One Day at a Time" in 2010. He has also had Pitbull collaborate on songs such as "Shut It Down," "Mr. Right Now" and 2019's "Te Quiero Amar," which was included on Akon's Latin album El Negreeto, where he sings in Spanish. The album also included "Como No" with Becky G and "Solo Tu" with Farruko.
With the new track, both artists seek to awaken energy in their followers to the rhythm of a much more urban merengue.
