“The minute I heard it, I knew exactly what I wanted to contribute to the song,” Meghan Trainor said. “Getting to work with CNCO and Sean Paul to make this smash was an absolute dream. The music video is one of my favorite videos I have ever done!”
The release comes at the heels of CNCO’s triple chart-topping achievement including #1 at Billboard’s Latin Airplay, Latin Pop Songs and Latin Rhythm for their last single “Se Vuelve Loca.” The song saw an increase in plays by 10 percent in plays and jumped to No.1 in its 10th week. In addition, CNCO recently performed at the Latin American Music Awards and took home wins for all three of their nominations including Favorite Artist - Pop, Favorite Duo or Group, and Favorite Album, Pop.
