Nicky Jam has found a little relief…
The 39-year-old Puerto Rican and Dominican American reggaeton singer/songwriter has released the surprise freestyle single “Desahogo,” featuring Carla Morrison.
To the beat of Morrison’s 2013 single “Disfruto,” Nicky Jam opens up about his life struggles, insecurities, and challenging road to success.
“God gave me another opportunity/ I lifted my head and don’t plan on lowering it,” he chants, also mentioning Colombia, where he previously lived, and where he revived his music career.
Throughout the lyrics, Nicky Jam sings about important life lessons like materialistic things not fulfilling him on a sentimental level, and how he was his own enemy. He also thanks reggaeton veterans Daddy Yankee and El Ñejo for being true brothers who stood by his side.
Morrison’s enthralling chorus kicks off the track and shines again toward the ending: “Me complace amarte / Disfruto acariciarte y ponerte a dormir / Es escalofriante / Tenerte de frente / Hacerte sonreír.”
“I hope this passes to get ready for another concert in el Choli next year,” he says in reference to the current health crisis. “I continue being the same but with more zeroes / I continue being the same but more sincere.”
An animated music video, directed by Marlon Villar, shows a cartoon version of Nicky Jam telling his story on the streets. The clip landed at No. 8 on YouTube’s trending page at the time of publishing.
