Akon continues his exploration of the reggaeton genre with the release of  “Como No”. A collaboration with Becky G . What makes this one different for the artist? The track is sung entirely in Spanish, for Akon a first.  “Como No” follows on the heels of Akon’s May release of “Get Money” with Anuel AA.

The video for the track dropped today.  The visuals exude a laid back barrio vibe.  Not a surprise given that the crowd which appear in virtually every scene aren’t actors but members of the actual community.  Locals young and old make prominent appearances, providing a great feeling of inclusion. Adding to the local feel is the setting – small food shops donning Cuban flags, cafecito and batidos and street murals make up the visuals. Although summer may be over on the calendar, count this one as an eleventh hour entry for your summer playlist. Peep the visuals here.
