Karol G Reveals New Song ‘Ay DiOs Mío’ Is the ‘Story of How I Met’ Anuel: Exclusive

Love has turned out to be an endless source of inspiration for
Karol G. The
Colombian star’s newest single, “Ay DiOs Mío,” which she
co-wrote with Venezuelan Danny Ocean, morphed into a tale of how
she met her fiancé, rapper Anuel.

“I sat down with Danny and he came up with the idea of ‘She
wrote me,’” Karol told Billboard during an exclusive Zoom
interview ahead of the single’s release July 9, during which she
sang the first line of the song.

“I said, ‘What? No. Not ‘she wrote me.’ In this song
I’ll tell the story of how I met Ema [short for Emmanuel,
Anuel’s real name]. The song starts from the moment Ema first
wrote me a DM on Instagram and how he sent me DMs in Instagram and
WhatsApp, until the day we met and went out. And when we went out,
in the middle of dancing, and whether I’d go home with him or
not.”

“Ay DiOs Mío [Oh My God],” produced by longtime
collaborator Ovy On The Drums, is reminiscent of “Tusa,” Karol
G’s smash hit with Nicki Minaj, in
the use of a slow intro that then breaks into a slow, sensual
reggaetón.

Working with Danny Ocean, however, was a departure for an artist
used to writing alone. “But that’s the way you grow and
evolve,” adds Karol G. Evolving, she says, has been front of mind
since the COVID-19 epidemic and lockdown.

“There is so much pressure that you start losing your way,”
she says. “Trying so hard to fit in was making me lose myself,
doing a million things at the same time but with no direction. …
Understanding myself has been the most important thing during these
times, and I can tell you with absolute conviction that I’m
Carolina again, the one who did music at home 14 years ago, and
it’s connected to the entire concept of my [upcoming] album.”

One thing that hasn’t changed during lockdown is her feelings
for Anuel, whom she’s been dating for nearly two years.

“Two well-invested years. We have a great time. Even more in
these times,” she says with a smile. “Instead of saying
‘We’re sick of each other,’ we’ve come closer together. We
finished his album, and seeing that process was great. And now
we’re working on mine. We really don’t give much opinions on
what the other does because we have very different identities and
we don’t want to interfere. But we’re part of the
process.”

Karol G’s new album is slated for the fall. In the meantime,
