Maybe you thought that all the 2018 remixes of had been released? You were wrong, because Maluma surprised us with a "Mala Mia" remix with Anitta and Becky G on Friday morning (Dec. 21).

The "Mala Mía" remix follows the same controversial tone of the original version, but this time Anitta and Becky G add a female rebellion vibe with lyrics that mostly talk about sex, demanding equality and defending the free way of living life. The new version is complemented by the catchy original chorus, "This is my life, it's only mine, you don’t live it/ If it bothers you, forget me."

"Mala Mía" was written by Maluma, Edgar Barrera, Stiven Rojas, Becky G, Anitta, Johany Alejandro Correa, and the Rude Boyz (Kevin Jiménez and Bryan Lezcano) and produced by Johany Alejandro Correa and The Rude Boyz.

The cover of the single was drawn by Romeo, Maluma’s 10 year-old nephew and the lyric video was inspired by his designs; It was produced, drawn and animated by Sara Escobar.
