We've all heard Promiscuous and Maneater in the clubs, we've all seen the new foxy image Nelly Furtado has adapted. And given her Portuguese roots (and past collaborations with latin artists), I had expected her to do a reggaeton song sooner or later. No Hay Igual was actually the first single of her early 2006 album Loose, but no one really noticed, since the song was quite monotonous and not catchy at all. Now she's issued a remix featuring Residente Calle 13: smart move, because he's one of the better lyricists in the latin rap scene. Combine that with a funky drumbeat, provided by star producer Timbaland, and you almost forget how irritating Nelly sounds on the song. Almost.
I don't think this will become a big club banger too, but hopefully the song will introduce Calle 13 to a new audience!
