Why Ritmo Song Rocks

  1. Unlike most of Black Eyed Peas‘ old songs, the group used autotune really well to fit its dancehall vibe. Also, all the group members get to show off their true rapping skills in this song.
  2. Corona’s vocals are chopped up and edited in a way that makes the song sound really good.
  3. J Balvin‘s verse is good and he even referenced the meme that spawned from the song that the band sampled.
  4. The music video is really awesome and features footage of Bad Boys For Life alongside the band and J Balvin rapping and singing their verses in a retro-futuristic neon backdrop with a modified DeLorean and a beach.
  5. This song helped boost the popularity of Rhythm Of The Night by Corona which was sampled in it.

[Verse 1: J Balvin]
No son ni Reebok ni son Nike (No)
Sin estilista luzco fly (Yes)
La Rosalía me dice que luzco guay (La Rosalía)
No te lo niego porque yo sé lo que hay (Wuh)
Lo que se ve, no se pregunta (Na’)
Soy próspero y tengo claro que e’ mi culpa (Es mi culpa, culpa; ah)
Como Canelo en el ring nada me asusta
Vivo en mi base y la paz no me la tumban (Wuh)
Hakuna Matata como Timón y Pumba
Voy pa’ leyenda así que dale zumba
Los dejo ciego’ con la vibra que me alumbra
Haters pa’ la tumba, nosotros pa’ la rumba (Ra)

[Pre-Chorus: Corona]

Ritmo

[Verse 2: will.i.am, Apl.de.ap, Corona]
The rhythm, the rebels, styles upon styles upon styles, I got several
Born to be wild ’cause I live like a daredevil
Live it up, hit ’em up, that’s the scenario (2Pac)
I get around like a merry go (Rooftop)
I am on top of the pedestal (Flu shot)
I am so sick I need medical (Puta)
I learned that shit down in Mexico (Hahaha!)
The rhythm, the rebel, new and improved I be on a new level
(Oh, yeah)
That’s how we do it, we buildin’ like LEGOs (Oh, yeah)
Feel on the fire, you dealin’ with fuego
Can’t stop, I am addicted I never quit
Won’t stop, don’t need to speak to no therapist
No stop, keepin’ it movin’s the narrative
Nonstop, do it like woo, there it is

[Pre-Chorus: Corona]
This is the rhythm, rhythm, rhythm, rhythm, rhythm of the night

[Chorus: J Balvin, Corona, will.i.am]
Toda la noche rompemo’ (Of the night)
Al otro día volvemo’ (Oh, yeah)
Tú sabes como lo hacemo’, baby

Baby, tonight’s like fuego (Of the night)
We ’bout to spend the dinero (Oh, yeah)
We party to the extremo, baby
