Nicky Jam is on a bilingual roll. “Forgiveness,” the English-language version of his hit “El Perdon" featuring Enrique Iglesias, is starting to impact the charts. Now, a bilingual version of OMI's “Cheerleader,” featuring Nicky Jam, is out.

The remix, set at a slightly faster clip than the original, begins with Nicky Jam singing in Spanish before OMI comes in on the verse. From that point on, there are snippets of Spanish, but mostly it’s a cool, organic sharing of the song. Jam, who grew up in New Jersey, is persuasive in both languages.

“Cheerleader,” which is at No. 1 on the Hot 100, has spent two weeks on the Latin Airplay chart in its original English-language version, climbing 50-48 the week of Aug. 8.
