Review

So the two boys Don Omar (from Puerto Rico) and Lucenzo (France, Portugal) have made it.

They having a lovely time somewhere in the Caribbean, with fast boats, fast cars and er... slow women (watch the YouTube video, they practically motionless).

Very fast paced song is actually quite easy to understand in parts, yet in other sections the lyrics are so fast I don't think even native-speakers would understand easily.  Until now, when I translated it, I didn't know, for sure, if it was in Spanish or Portugese or both.

It is definitely in both languages, and I've detailed the Spanish grammar in this review.

The Kuduro is actually an Angolan dance - translated as "hard ass".  More nice reportage here in Spanish.

There's a shout-out to an "Orfanato" at the beginning of the song, which turns out to be their record label, but it might be defunct, as there's been no tweets since 2014, and their website was down when I looked.

There's lots of simple lines, describing the dance, and then full-speed lines where the effects on a woman are described.  It's easy to sing along with the easy lines, but try the hard ones!

I encountered the verb "meter" in this song for the first time - it's a complex beast and I couldn't match all senses and "al + infinitive" used as "when + verb" is useful.
