Fat Joe Releases Bilingual Hip-Hop Track “Yes” with Cardi B & Anuel AA

Fat Joe has said Yes to a new hit…

The 49-year-old Puerto Rican and Cuban American rapper has joined voices with Cardi B and Anuel AA to release a surprise song. 

Fat Joe, Cardi B & Anuel AA

The trio took over streaming platforms on Friday after releasing their first song together “Yes,” a powerful hip-hop tune that honors the 1972 Héctor Lavoeand Willie Colónhit “Aguanilé.” 

What does aguanilé means? It’s a Yoruba word (a language from Nigeria in West Africa) that in salsa it stems from the Afro-Cuban religion called Santería, which basically asks for the purification of earthly possessions. 

In the song, Fat Joe, Cardi B, and Anuel AA use the word as a steady chorus.

Meanwhile, the song’s lyrics are about how life is on the New York streets. 

Fat Joe and Cardi B sing about power and the money, with Cardi rhyming, “La Cardi, Bardi/ Never been stressed by a ho, no/ Never been pressed by a bitch (by a bitch) Murder and the money on my mind (on my mind),” while Anuel AA adds his unique bad boy style in Spanish.
