Riff: Daddy Yankee – “Limbo”

Jan 3, 2013

(Translation): It doesn’t matter if it is full, come here/There is enough space for everyone

from Limbo lyrics by Daddy Yankee

You know those songs that take six notes before you can predict the entire rest of the song? This is one of them. It’s a tropical party jam about the limbo. We get that it’s not exactly complex. But even for the setting, this is lazy. It’d fit a tourism ad, but not four minutes of beaten-dead-horse.
