Lil Wayne has dabbled in rock and R&B, and now he crosses language barriers. On the eve of Tha Carter IV‘s release, the Young Money jefe enlists Enrique Iglesias for a Spanglish remix to hit top 5 hit “How to Love.” Weezy keeps his original English verses intact, leaving the Spanish to the Latin heartthrob.
Producer Detail explained how the bilingual collaboration came together. “It’s never been done in hip-hop. The first rapper to do a Spanish version along with a Spanish icon. We make history!” he told Rap-Up.com. “Wayne’s a Libra, I’m a Libra. We’re on the same path creatively, so if I believe it could be done a certain way and he feels that way, nothing’s gonna stop us from doing it.”
