After going with a dancehall feel for the original version of Whine Up, Kat DeLuna decided to give the remix a reggaeton feel with guest verses from Beny Blaze and K Hyphen (as well as the original guest verse from Elephant Man.) The dancehall beat remains intact, but Blaze & Hyphen’s verses are totalmente en espanol, making it appeal to Latino music fans. This is a rather unusual direction to take for a remix (no rappers, all the new verses in a different language,) but what do you expect from an artist acclaimed by so many (artists and critics alike) as a prodigal trend setter? Be sure to check out her debut album, 9 Lives, on August 7 for more trail-blazing, ground-breaking music.
