The song has a to date sales figure of 32,028 in the UK, according to the Official Charts Company.
Ana Rosa Santiago, VP, latin music at UMPG said: “MadMusick speak to a young global audience. While they specialize in urban music, they work across genres and generations, writing and producing music with artists from many different backgrounds. I’m thrilled to welcome them to UMPG.”
Giencarlos and Jonathan Rivera commented: “After a long time searching for the right publishing house, we found the company that believes in us and in our vision.”
