"She isn’t just an artist; she’s a movement. The truth is I always dreamt of collaborating with her. I think this is something big for our [Latin] industry. I want the whole world to feel pride at this step I’m taking -- not just as an artist, but culturally," Maluma said to Billboard about his experience.

"Hearing that Alicia Keys liked the song and wanted to join us on 'Calma' is an honor and blessing that really transcends what I can put into words,” Pedro Capó said to Billboard. “When we initially wrote the song, I wanted to capture and share what makes Puerto Rico so special to me, and so many of us on the island.”
