Con Calma: Daddy Yankee enlists Snow to reimagine 1992 hit “Informer”

Daddy Yankee enlists Toronto artist Snow for Con Calma hit

Puerto Rican hitmaker Daddy Yankee launched a new single in January which features Toronto reggae and dancehall legend, Snow. “Con Calma” was produced by Domingo (Big Pun, Fat Joe, KRS-One) and features a cameo—in Spanish—from Snow, as he helps Daddy Yankee reinvent his smash hit single, “Informer,” which spent seven weeks at No. 1 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

“It was one of my favourite songs growing up, and to do this the right way I needed the guy to be on the record,” explained Daddy Yankee, who celebrated his 42nd birthday just a few days ago.

“You got to give honour to a classic in order to make a new version of it, and once I showed it to him, he said, ‘Wow, it’s amazing. I’ll 100% be on the song.’ So you have a Canadian and a Puerto Rican making Jamaican music. Two pioneers, two people pushing the cultures.”

The Marlon P-directed video was released on Jan. 23, and has already racked up over 60 million views to date. If you like the song and video, consider taking Daddy Yankee’s “Con Calma” challenge, which has been taking over social media as of late.

You can find the single on Apple Music, Spotify, and other digital streaming services.
