Daddy Yankee Releases “Don Don,” a Spanish Reimagining of Sisqo’s “Thong Song” Featuring Anuel AA & Kendo Kaponi

Daddy Yankee is putting a Spanish spin on another ‘90s classic…  

The 43-year-old Puerto Rican rapper/singer has joined voices with Anuel AA and Kendo Kaponi to release “Don Don,” their Spanish reggaeton take on Sisqo’s 1999 hit song “Thong Song.”

Daddy Yankee

In the reimagined song, Anuel AA sings the “Thong Song” melody during the chorus. It’s a nifty gimmick, but “Don Don” is more beguiling than its familiar hook: Daddy Yankee is a stick of dynamite on the track, his flow compact and rewarding. And make sure to keep your ears peeled for a nod to the Michael Jordan documentary The Last Dance, as well as Daddy Yankee’s intensity balancing out Anuel’s suave demeanor as they both invite listeners to the dance floor in their own way.

Daddy Yankee scored a hit last year with “Con Calma,” which revived Snow’s 1993 hit single “Informer” and featured the singer himself. And then he later released a remix version of the song featuring Katy Perry.  The song, which passed two billion views on YouTube, recently won the iHeartRadio Music Award for Latin Pop/Reggaeton Song of the Year.

Camila Cabello Among This Year’s iHeartRadio Music Awards Winners

“Con Calma” also becomes Daddy Yankee’s seventh video as lead, featured artist or collaborator to form part of YouTube’s Billion Views Club.

“To transcend different cultures singing in my language and representing it has been a core mission since the beginning of my career,” Daddy Yankee expressed on Instagram. “There is no greater satisfaction than to continue building my legacy and continue to be relevant in the music industry.”

The global hit, which is an energetic, bilingual remake of Snow’s 1992 hit “Informer,” peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart dated May 4, 2019, where it reigned for 14 consecutive weeks.

In addition, YouTube highlights that Daddy Yankee is the most-subscribed Latin artist on the platform with 30.6 million subscribers at the time of publishing.

“Huge congrats, Boss! It’s amazing to see you rompiendola on YouTube with ‘Con Calma’ hitting 2 Billion views and being the most subscribed Latin artist on our platform,” said Sandra Jimenez, head of Music Partnerships in Latin America at YouTube, in a press statement. “Your success on YouTube is a testament to your incredible musical talent, high engagement with fans, and YouTube’s unique ability to connect music artists with fans globally.”

Daddy Yankee and Snow reached this new achievement over a year after “Con Calma” entered YouTube’s Billion Views Club in June 2019.

However, the record for most weeks in a row at No. 1 is still Daddy Yankee‘s “Con Calma,” with a total of nine weeks.

The song by “The King of Reggaeton” remains in the Top 10 of the list. The track accumulated 32 weeks on the list, with 31 in the first 10 places. Currently, it is ranked No. 5, rising two places over the previous week.
