The Song Review
Taki Taki is a bold song which talks about seducing their partners. The song features both English and Spanish vocals as all three of them get an equal opportunity to sing the lyrics. The song starts off with Ozuna opening and singing about how he wants his partner dance as it were the last time.
The song also creatively makes use of random rhyming in its verses, for example, Ozuna sings “You want a little kiss or naqui, Booty blows up like Nagasaki, Turn on the Kawasaki motorcycles.”.
This is followed by vocals from Cardi B who raps in reply to Ozuna singing how she wants materialistic items in return for what he wants to experience. The song interprets expressing love and lust from both sides as they dance along to the tune. The latter of the song is sung by both Selena and Ozuna as they lyrically play around teasing each other whilst singing the chorus at the same time.
The official music video of the song is directed by Collin Tilley and is set in a post-apocalyptic world. The main performers including all four singers can be seen wearing matching clothes in terms of the same color. The set is rather dark and intense with a volcano appearing in the background.
Initially, all four main performers can be seen dancing together before they are joined by the supporting dancers. Ozuna can also be seen lying in a pool of women. Then the video progresses to the point where Cardi B takes over the vocals. Cardi’s dressing also changes from maroon to a more succubus-like jet black suit.
As the vocals shift to Selena Gomez, she appears in a lighter monochromatic suit. The background also switches from darker to a greener forest-like background. The sequence ends as all four of the main performers can once again be seen together, dancing in a seductive manner.
