Daddy Yankee’s new track was produced by the Cataracs, who’ve worked with everyone from Enrique Iglesias to Beyonce. It also features newcomer Duncan.

There are currently no plans for an English-language album, according to a spokesperson for the entertainer, one of the most revered rappers in Latin music.

But Daddy Yankee is releasing the 10th-anniversary edition of Barrio Fino on October 7.

Yankee, who has been working with producers like Diplo and Jim Jonsin, was searching for the right English-language song. When the Cataracs song surfaced, it struck a chord.

“Over these past 10 years I focused on bringing my music to the forefront of the Latin music world, but when I got this track from The Cataracs, I knew I had to run with it,” Yankee said in a statement. “Most people have only ever heard me in Spanish so it shocks everyone to hear me rap all in English. The hook helps bring it to life. Duncan’s voice is one of a kind and he just adds that magic touch to the record.”

A decade ago, Barrio Fino was heard around the world. In the U.S., sales have totaled 1.08 million to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The album debuted at No. 1 on Top Latin Albums on July 31, 2004. It spent 24 weeks at No. 1 and holds more weeks at No. 1 than any other urban album in the chart’s history. Only four other albums have had more weeks at No. 1. The ranking:

  1. Gloria Estefan, Mi Tierra (58 weeks at No. 1)
    2. Selena, Dreaming of You (44 weeks)
    3. Luis Miguel, Segundo Romance (29 weeks)
    4. Ricky Martin, Vuelve (26 weeks)
    5. Daddy Yankee, Barrio Fino (24 weeks)

The album peaked at No. 26 on the Billboard 200 on April 16, 2005.

“Ten years ago ‘Gasolina’ introduced me and my music to the mainstream market and helped pave the path for many artists that came after me with a vision and a dream,” Yankee added.

“This Is Not a Love Song” went on sale Tuesday (Sept. 9) through iTunes and other digital platforms.

Iglesias’ new eye-popping clip shows plenty of skin and booze, as well as a bar-raising level of twerking, all set to a relentless disco-pop beat and starring a few dozen of the Latin superstar’s scantily clad friends.

“Yeah baby there you go, stealing my heart just like a criminal,” he sings. “No turning back cuz time is critical. Ya move your body like a miracle.”

Pitbull shares his verse-spitting screen time with a person in a bear suit and some friends doing beer pong, among other things.

“Baby you pop it and lock it, drop it I’ll watch it f’sho. Baby, you roll it and rock it move it now use it let’s go,” he raps. “You know I’ll lick it and do the things that make you explo-” yeah, we’ll just stop right there.

The “Freak” beat comes courtesy of The Cataracs (Robin Thicke, Selena Gomez).

“I’m a Freak” is the latest track off Iglesias’ upcoming “Sex+Love” album, due March 18 on Universal Music Group.
