La Nueva y La Ex - Daddy Yankee

Speed: 99 bpm

The DJ's Take: I was dumb enough to take French in high school, so I have no idea what these lyrics mean (except the title). But it's festive, isn't it? I'm old enough to remember spinning tracks like Gasolina, Oye Mi Canto, and Lo Que Paso Paso when reggaeton was hot. And my feeling is this is still danceable for a Latin crowd, maybe in NYC or somewhere in Texas. But there's also that universal bounce that can work elsewhere if you time it right. If you're staying key-compatible, try blending with Usher's Yeah!, although almost anything upbeat in the 100 bpm range should keep things going.
