The new song "Ulala" from Daddy Yankee and Myke Towers was released over the Thanksgiving weekend, and has touches of reggaeton and dancehall with which it aspires to become the "next global hit," Warner Music Latina label wrote.
"[My producers] Play-n-Skillz were working on Daddy Yankee's album at the same time they were working on mine, so in one of those back and forth on the phone, Daddy Yankee told me he wanted me to get on one of his songs, and I decided to show him 'Ulala,'" Myke Towers told Rolling Stone magazine. "Daddy Yankee recognizes a global hit when he hears it and he could hear the global sound in the song, as could I."
"Ulala" is the third song the two artists have done together, after "Pasatiempo," and last year's "Súbele el Volumen" with Jhayco.
"In one of the studio sessions, the beat of 'Ulala' was the first song they played for me," Towers told the magazine. "The process was kind of magical: the song came together very quickly and fluidly, kind of hard to explain, almost as if the beat was already telling me what to write."
Warner Music noted that the song consists of "a mesmerizing and infectious melody" that shows the "versatility as an artist and performer" of Mike Towers.
Just two days after its premiere, the song already has more than 2 million plays on YouTube. The new single will be part of Towers' upcoming album, titled Michael.
