WATCH: Don Omar Reunites with Wisin y Yandel & Luny Tunes on ‘SANDUNGA’

After over a decade, Don Omar is back in action with Luny Tunes and Wisin y Yandel. On Nov. 2, the hitmakers released a throwback old-school reggaeton banger, “SANDUNGA,” which is part of the upcoming Don Omar Presenta Back To Reggaeton EP. 

“Collaborating on this track with Wisin y Yandel and Luny Tunes has been a wish of mine for a long time,” Don Omar said in a press statement. “Not only did we revisit our musical origins, but the outcome speaks for itself. Given our shared history, the creative synergy was seamless. Get ready for ‘SANDUNGA’; it’s the best reggaeton track in recent times.”

He continues saying that with the new track, he showcases diverse music influences that have contributed to the genre’s evolution. “This song not only resonates with its audience, but it beckons them to dance and relish the experience, harkening back to the roots of reggaeton when it was, quite simply, ‘SANDUNGA,’” he said.

The new song starts by echoing Don Omar’s “dale, Don, dale” signature adlib. By incorporating seductive woman vocals with each of the artists’ hard-hitting verses, the OG reggaetoneros delivered a new club-ready anthem that captures the essence of early 2000s reggaeton. It makes sense since the producers Francisco Saldaña and Víctor Cabrera, better known as Luny Tunes, helped both Don Omar and Wisin y Yandel’s careers. Some iconic hits that Luny Tunes has helped produce include Don Omar’s “Dale Don Dale” and Wisin y Yandel’s “Rakata.”

Before this song, Don Omar and Wisin y Yandel collaborated on hits like “Nadie Como Tu” (2006) and “MySpace” (2006). As far as solo work goes, Don Omar recently released Forever King, his first album in four years. On the other hand, Wisin y Yandel released their last album La Última Misión in 2022.
