Cali y El Dandee Team Up with Mau y Ricky & Guaynaa for ‘Popeton’ Single “Despiértate”

It’s a wake up call for Cali y El Dandee

The Colombian Latin pop/urban duo, made up of brothers Alejandro Rengifo and Mauricio Rengifo, has joined forces with Mau y Ricky and Guaynaa for what could become a summer scorcher titled “Despiértate.”

Cali y El Dandee, Mau y Ricky & Guaynaa

Written by Cali y El Dandee, Guaynaa, Mau y Ricky, Andrés Torres, and Jon Leone, the infectious popeton song (pop and reggaeton), is about reminding their fans that they’re too good and beautiful to be with someone who doesn’t value them.

“Baby wake up, and stop crying for a dumba– who doesn’t love you like I swear I love you/ Baby wake up, you are too pretty to be with him,” goes part of the uplifting chorus.

“For a long time now we had been missing a song with Mau and Ricky, two brothers whom we admire a lot, and Guaynaa, who has become a reference in the new generation’s urban music,” Cali y El Dandee said. “It is a fun song, which you are going to enjoy a lot, and that, in addition to having lighthearted lyrics, tells all those who are in toxic relationships to wake up and look for a person who really treats them as they should.”

The music video shot by 2 Wolves/Sota and directed by Kath D in Miami shows the playful chemistry all five artists have as they’re on a mission of conquering the girl of their dreams.

The hard-hitting reggaeton single features Middle Eastern influences.

It centers on a woman who’s no fool and has a message for her ex.

“I won’t make mistakes again/ And much less with someone like you/ Who treats me bad/ I don’t get sad if I don’t see you/ You looked for it/ My heart doesn’t beg you, it’s an atheist,” Natti kicks off the track.

The beat, lyrics, and vocal fusions are fire, easily becoming a summer anthem for the ladies.

The music video shows both artists joined by a group of girls dancing at a basketball court.

Like “Sin Pijama,” Prince Royce makes a camo.

“Ram Pam Pam,” which samples Daddy Yankee’s “Ella Me Levanto,” is a sequel to Natti’s all-female perreo “Las Nenas,” featuring Farina, Cazzu and newcomer Duraca.

About the collaboration, Ozuna told Apple Music, “Ovi is a good guy, he’s a humble guy. He told me he wanted to do something with me and I thought if this can help his career go up, why not?”
