"Contra La Pared" (Against the Wall) is the latest single by Paul. It's his first release since putting out the special collection Mad Love the Prequel. That set featured hits like the title track featuring David Guetta and Becky G and "No Lie" with Dua Lipa. For J Balvin, "Contra La Pared" follows "I Can't Get Enough" with Selena Gomez, Benny Blanco and Tainy.
Paul wrote "Contra La Pared" with J Balvin and his longtime producer Tainy. The track mixes Paul's Caribbean flavor with Balvin's reggaeton edge. Like "Mi Gente" with Willy William and "X" with Nicky Jam, the guys' new collaboration rides a funky and slinky beat drop. While the title might seem like a political statement about a certain wall, Balvin actually means it as something that he's sexually pushed up against. "She lovin' it so much / She can have it 'pon speed dial," Paul adds. "Contra La Pared" sounds like it will be another border-breaking and boundary-pushing banger for both artists.
In the music video for "Contra La Pared," Paul and J Balvin party in the middle of the desert. No matter if it's day or night, they keep it moving. Their single is now available on iTunes and Apple Music.
