Cali y El Dandee joined forces with Mau y Ricky and Guaynaa for what could possibly become a fan favorite this summer dubbed “Despiértate” and premiering exclusively on Billboard today (April 29).
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 are 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.
