The Grammy award-winning artist wrote on her Instagram handle, “There are many ways to be Despechá, in this theme it is from the freeness or the craziness, moving without reservations or regrets. This is the place from where I make music, from where I did it when I first started and where I will continue until God says so. I’m grateful for having been able to travel in recent years and have learned from music from other places including the [Dominican Republic], where artists like Fefita la Grande, Juan Luis Guerra, and Omega have inspired me and without them this song would not exist.”

The song is written in Spanish and it starts as,

“Baby, no me llame’

Que yo estoy ocupá’ olvidando tus male’

Ya decidí que esta noche se sale

Con toa’ mis motomami’, con toda mis yale”

which translates to,

Baby, don’t call me

I’m busy forgetting your ills

I’m going out tonight

With all my motomamis, with all my ladies.”

The word Motomami translates to “biker chick.” It roughly means a bald, tough girl who may be really sensitive and have issues.” According to an another definition, “Motomami is a way of living, vibe of power, and the liberty of being.”

The chorus of the song is,

“Y ando despechá’, woah, alocá’

Bajé con un flow nuevo ‘e caja, baby, hackeá’

Lo muevo de la’o a la’o y a otro la’o

Hoy salgo con mi baby de la disco coroná’

Y ando despechá’, woah, alocá’

Que Dios me libre de volver a tu la’o

Lo muevo de la’o a la’o y a otro la’o

Hoy salgo con mi baby de la disco coroná’, coroná’, yeah”

Which says,

“And I’m spiteful, woah, out of my mind

I came with a new flow, it hacks

I move him side to side and side to side

Today I go out with my crowned disco baby

And I’m spiteful, woah, out of my mind is

God forbid I go back to you,

I move him side to side and side to side

Today I go out with my crowned disco baby, yeah”
