In an interview with OBSERVER ONLINE on Tuesday, Rvssian explained how the collaboration with Raux Alejandro came about.

"We actually collaborated on this track over FaceTime. He was in Mexico for a show and told me he wanted to add some reggae to the album. So he sent me his idea and I brought it to life with Troublemekka and Oswado Rangel," said Rvssian.

The Latin Grammy Awards are scheduled to take place on November 16 in Spain.

Edgar Barrera leads with 13 nominations followed by Shakira, Keityn, Camilo and Karol G with seven nods each.
