Esto vamo' a arrancarlo con altura
El dembow lo canto con hondura
Dicen una estrella, una figura
De Hector aprendí la sabrosura
Nunca viste una joya tan pura
Esto es pa' que quede, lo que yo hago dura (Con altura)
Demasiada' noches de travesura' (Con altura)
Vivo rápido y no tengo cura (Con altura)
Iré joven pa' la sepultura (Con altura)

Pongo rosas sobre el Panamera
Pongo palmas sobre la guantanamera
Llevo a Camarón en la guantera (De la Isla)
Lo hago para mi gente y lo hago a mi manera
Flores azules y quilates y si es mentira que me maten
Flores azules y quilates y si es mentira que me maten

Aquí en la altura están fuertes los vientos
Ponte el cinturón y coge asiento
A tu jeva ya la vi por dentro (Yes)
El dinero nunca pierde tiempo (No, no)
Contra la pared (Tú lo sabe)
Y le tuve que comprar un trago porque la tenías con sed
Desde acá qué rico se ve
No soy de acá pero rompí el bajo otra vez
Y si es mentira que me maten (J Balvin)
Flores azules y quilates
Y si es mentira que me maten
