The era of star-studded global pop collabs isn’t over yet — and the newest entry into the realm is “I Can’t Get Enough,” a slinky track that teams up J Balvin, Selena Gomez, Benny Blanco, and Tainy.
The song very much reflects the forward-looking universe that veteran reggaeton producer Tainy has been operating in while working on albums like Bad Bunny’s X100PRE. He and Blanco keep things minimal, letting Balvin and Gomez’s vocals take the spotlight, and the partnership actually works pretty well. “I Can’t Get Enough” feels like a Balvin track, with its fragmented vocal loops and laid-back beat. That shouldn’t come as a total surprise: Tainy had a hand on Balvin’s 2018 album Vibras.
It also marks the second time that Selena Gomez has dabbled in urbano sounds. She appeared on the pop-reggaeton anthem “Taki Taki” with Ozuna, DJ Snake, and Cardi B last year, but her feature on that song drew some social media criticism for her Caribbean-style Spanish.
Tainy and Benny Blanco started working on the song back in December before getting Balvin and Gomez on it. It could be a sign of the direction Tainy is heading towards as he prepares to release his very first full-length album. He shared that a solo project has been a dream of his, and it would be coming as he builds on the success of “I Like It,” the Balvin, Cardi B, and Bad Bunny hit that scored a Grammy nomination for Record of the Year.
“I’m really excited about this song and to have helped put this collaboration together, especially since it was so easy and very organic,” Tainy said about “I Can’t Get Enough” in a press release.
