Reggaeton superstar Daddy Yankee has released his 2021 first new single, “Problema,” via El Cartel Record s/Republic/Universal.
“Problema” boasts a beat of thundering kick drums and skipping snares topped by a smattering of squeaking synths. The song is capped off, of course, by an outsized hook from Daddy Yankee, who lets his voice wail like a siren on the refrain’s titular word: “Esa gata es problema, problema/Ella siempre es el tema/Tú eres un problema, problema.”
“Problema” has also been said to be an answer to Panameñian producer “El Chombo” who in a podcast interview with Molusco said that Reggaeton was dead, this came with great rejection from Reggaeton fans around the world who quickly rejected the statement.
El Jefe, The Big Boss of Reggaeton, Daddy Yankee on this promo video teaser for “problema” said “If Reggaeton is dead. let me revived it with this new single”.
