“Taki Taki” has arrived, but it feels like it did months ago.
Unless my brain officially can’t decipher one EDM-tinged reggaeton track from the next (and that’s very well possible), Major Lazer’s star-studded new banger, “Taki Taki,” with Selena Gomez, Cardi B and Ozuna, has a striking resemblance to Major Lazer (RIP), Anitta & Pabllo Vittar’s 2017 summer smash, “Sua Cara” (receipts below).
The production, I— I can’t defend Snake’s decision-making here. Let me turn my attention elsewhere…
Ozuna is all over this, and that’s all I’ll say about that.
Cardi’s verse sounds polished and crisp – she’s the real gleaming highlight on the track.
Now, the decision to include Selena’s part towards the end was… a choice, and her part is a tad underwhelming (breathy though, and y’all know that’s this site’s thing). MOAR. SELENA. PLEASE.
All in all, it’s gonna be a no from me, dawg (it will probably blast to No. 1 anyway so what do I know).
