The way it usually works is, famous soccer players fall in love with a reggaetón tune, they do a little victory lap or dance to it (or post themselves singing 10 seconds on Instagram) and the song becomes a viral hit.

Not so in the case of striker Jesé Rodríguez, who plays for Real Madrid. At the same time that rumors are swirling about his possible transfer to Paris Saint-German or the Premier League in England, Rodríguez has come up with other talents off the soccer field.

Turns out he’s a budding rapper with one song to his name, “Yo sabía,” which he’s released under the artistic moniker Jey M.

There’s more. Jey M, the reggaetonero, is apparently buds with Alexis & Fido, De La Ghetto and Carlitos Rossy. All three flew to Spain to shoot a video of the official remix of “Yo sabía,” which was released by Warner Music Spain, licensed from Team Presi Money.

How talented is Jey M? Hard to tell from a single song, though it’s pretty catchy.  The video checks all the reggaetón video boxes: Expensive cars, scantily clad girls, looooots of booty, and a bunch of heavy gold chains. Which Jey M obviously won’t be wearing to his soccer matches.
