Tainy

Puerto Rican producer Tainy recently sat down with Genius to break down how he made his and Bad Bunny‘s crossover hit, “Callaita.”

With over 340 million streams on Spotify alone, the track peaked at No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart, and No. 52 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. It adds to a growing list of Spanish-language songs that have crossed over into the US mainstream.

Born in Puerto Rico, Tainy has become one of the most in-demand producers in the Latin world. His credits include Cardi B‘s “I Like It,” Bad Bunny‘s “Solo de Mi,” and Ozuna‘s “Bebe.”
