“China” -- the all-star team-up of Anuel AA, Daddy Yankee, Karol G, Ozuna and J Balvin -- blasts into the Hot Latin Songs chart at No. 2 on the chart dated Aug. 3. The song, which is the first single from Anuel’s upcoming album, Emmanuel.
“China,” produced by Tainy and co-written by each of the five artists con the track, is a reimagination of Shaggy’s “It Wasn’t Me.”
“‘China’ is the strongest song of my career up to date,” Anuel told Billboard on July 12. “It’s the mix of different cultures with each of the collaborators contributing with its own flow. I had been looking to revive a classic and when I heard Shaggy's mix, it hit me. The original rhythm had strong Chinese elements, hence the name of the song. I sent the mix to Daddy Yankee, he loved it and recorded his part after just three days. Karol then heard it and fell in love with the vibe. Ozuna and Balvin then came on board.”
