Anuel AA, Farruko, Sech, and Justin Quiles appear on the remix, along with Dalex, Lenny Tavarez, and Dimelo Flow, who appeared on the original version of the song released in late March.

The core of the song’s lyrics centers on two people who have intense sexual chemistry, and who reconnect after having the “best night ever.”

Anuel AA, Farruko, Sech, and Quiles add a little extra spice and sensuality to the remix of the reggaeton track. This time around, Anuel AA kicks off the track and samples part of his 2018, Haze-assisted “Amanece.”

Directed by Gus, the music video shows the power team joined by a group of models.

Both Rauw and Sech are confirmed for Billboard‘s two-part On the Rise panels at the 2020 virtual Latin Music Week taking place from October 20th to 23rd.

The song perfectly highlights Feid’s distinguishable R&B-tropical-pop fusions. In February, he dropped the official music video.

With the remix, Feid has coined the song as “possibly his best song all year.” 

“Porfa” is about wanting your ex to come back to you.

“I ask you to please don’t leave, stay with me/ I lost track of all the days I haven’t eaten/ I’m going crazy looking for you and I can’t find you/ I don’t want to touch anyone else to be with you,” the lyrics express. 

On the remix, the collaborators spit their verses asking for their girl to return.

The nearly seven-minute music video shows all six artists performing the song in a neon-drenched room with old televisions as different models are wandering alone as a sign that they’re enjoying their independence.

On the Billboard charts, “Porfa” has secured chart entries on Hot Latin Songs and Latin Airplay charts.
