The first time I heard Daddy Yankee (yo!) I was at a club in Inwood, a neighborhood in upper Manhattan. I stood beside the Puerto Rican I was dating at the time (they’ve been so many Puerto Ricans) when the rhythmic, Caribbean-inspired beat boomed from the speakers.
“Zumbale el mambo pa’ q mis gatas prendan los motores!” My future Puerto Rican baby daddy (in my head) sang. And then there was a lot of talk about gasoline?
Though I had no idea what the “Gasolina” lyrics really meant, my waist began to wind while my hips swayed. The Puerto Rican I was dating at the time didn’t know what had come over me, but didn’t complain. By nights end, Daddy Yankee gained a new
baby momma fan.
So, you can imagine how excited I was to learn that Mamiverse is giving away 16 tickets to the People en Español Festival Presented by Target, where Daddy Yankee (yo!) will perform along with Luis Miguel, Price Royce, and many more. The People En Español Festival Presented by Target is an event celebrating Latino entertainment and culture and will take place from September 1 – September 2 in San Antonio, Texas.
How can you potentially win tickets to this celebratory event? By attending the Mamiverse Virtual Makeover Twitter Party, thats how! The Mamiverse Virtual Makeover Twitter party will provide tweeps with make-up tips and techniques. Plus, they’ll be giving away $900 worth of Target gift cards and a beauty bag full of swag.
