The song has a different, pop-rock and slightly reggae feel where Sharkira sings the beginning of the song and Rhianna jumps in about half way. Shakira describes her experience working with Rhianna as an, “Utopia.” The song received 1,172 first-day plays on 143 U.S. stations and while it still too early to tell what the song’s life cycle will be, it had good feedback on social media and a good start on the airwaves.
