We Know You’re Jamming Out to “Taki Taki”… But What Does It Actually Mean?

By  | 

Selena Gomez‘s highly anticipated collaboration with Cardi B, DJ Snake, and Ozuna is FINALLY here and fans are going WILD for it. And, to be honest, we’re not surprised by all the hype surrounding the song because it is THAT good.

After WEEKS of teasing the star-studded collaboration, DJ Snake’s track, “Taki Taki,” has finally been released and not only was it worth the wait, it is absolute fire. We don’t know about you guys, but we’re definitely putting “Taki Taki” on repeat for the next couple of days. In case you didn’t notice, the upbeat collab goes back and forth between Spanish and English lyrics with Ozuna’s verses being completely in Spanish, while both Sel and Cardi switch it up between Spanish and English on the track.

Since the song’s release, many fans have been wondering what “Taki Taki” actually stands for and, according to Genius, there isn’t an official meaning behind the title. HOWEVER, with lyrics from Sel’s verse like, “What my taki taki wants // My taki taki gets,” well… you can probably make that connection yourself.

ANYWAY, even though the meaning of Taki Taki is somewhat explicit, that’s not stopping fans from enjoying the banger. One fan wrote:

“I don’t know how to speak Spanish but watch me learn it in 3 minutes and 33 seconds.”

Another tweeted:


One fan shared their favorite part by tweeting:

“The way Selena says DJ Snake kills me. Loved the song.”

And another simply wrote:

“#TakiTaki my ears are blessed.”
