When it comes to a workout session, having the right music is a major key. Zumba Fitness officially announce their partnership with Puerto Rico’s very own Daddy Yankee to create the dance-friendly song, “Hula Hoop.” The reggaeton-thumping track comes as a remix of his 2016 Los Evo Jedis-produced, “Shaky Shaky” from his upcoming eighth studio album El Disco Duro.
“This is a track I made by popular request. The fans asked me on my social media platforms to create a track off the Hula Hoop hook on “Shaky Shaky.” They asked for it, and I gave it to them. It’s incredible how easily I can listen to my fans ideas, and respond! It (social media) really helps artists have a clear idea of what they (the fans) want and expect from us,” shared Daddy Yankee.
When asked how the partnership came about, Zumba admits the success of “Shaky Shaky” made the project a no brainer. “When you’re in a Zumba class, it’s like you’re turning on the radio, and discovering new songs and rhythms—”Shaky Shaky” was such a hit in class are thrilled to bring our fans and instructors this new track and choreography to create a global ‘hula hoop’ movement,” says Zumba VP of Marketing, Carolina Moraes.
