Album details

The album was mostly known for its new sound in reggaeton, where most of the tracks were composed of different rhythms and lyrics, without use of the dem bow beat. The album is a blend of reggaeton and hip hop music, all with a humorous and sarcastic feel to it in subject matter.[1] The songs mostly deal with sexually explicit subjects, which became the norm for Calle 13's music.
