Absurdly popular rapper 50 Cent has a new single out, but you’ve probably never heard it. And if you’re watching MTV or tuned in to Power 106, Hot 97 and Wild 94.9, you probably never will. 

That’s because 50’s new collaboration isn’t with Timbaland, the Game, or Lil’ Wayne, but Puerto Rican duo Wisin y Yandel. And it’s in Spanish.  

50-Cent is one of a growing cohort of American rappers flocking to the Carribean (and New York) to record with established artists like Daddy Yankee (whose English remixes sometimes land him on MTV), Wisin y Yandel, Zion y LennoxAventura, and Luny Tunes, purveyors of the Carribbean’s infectious blend of rap, dancehall, and bachata, called Reggaeton. Never heard of ’em? Well, get yourself an education, courtesy of some of America’s most popular rappers:

Wisin y Yandel feat. 50 Cent, “Mujeres en el Club”

Daddy Yankee feat. Snoop Dogg “Zona de Gangstas”

Wisin y Yandel, feat. Eve, “Quisiera Saber”

HERE ARE THE FACTS:

Our fall fundraising drive is off to a rough start, and we very much need to raise $250,000 in the next couple of weeks. If you value the journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us do it with a donation today.

As we wrote over the summer, traffic has been down at Mother Jones and a lot of sites with many people thinking news is less important now that Donald Trump is no longer president. But if you're reading this, you're not one of those people, and we're hoping we can rally support from folks like you who really get why our reporting matters right now. And that's how it's always worked: For 45 years now, a relatively small group of readers (compared to everyone we reach) who pitch in from time to time has allowed Mother Jones to do the type of journalism the moment demands and keep it free for everyone else.

Please pitch in with a donation during our fall fundraising drive if you can. We can't afford to come up short, and there's still a long way to go by November 5.
