Although they were missing from the music scene for five years, Reik got the memo that time and trends are constantly changing. That's why, while still keeping their essence that we all love, they have fused their romantic ballads with urban sounds. All of this, of course, was possible with the help of one of the hottest reggaeton stars of the moment, Nicky Jam

For a while now, the Mexican group has been teasing fans about their collaboration with the Puerto Rican urban artist. The wait is finally over as the remix for "Ya Me Enteré" dropped Friday. 

The original track, which made its debut earlier this year, is the first single off of Reik's forthcoming album "Des/Amor" expected to launch on June 17. This is the first time that the boys release fresh music after a five-year hiatus from the music scene. The last album Reik released was "Peligro" in 2011. 

"He started working with my managers and Mexico and when I met him, he told me that most of his songs start out as ballads and that made me very curious," frontman Jesús Navarro told Billboard about Nicky Jam. "We started talking about writing something together and while we were writing, I showed him 'Ya Me Enteré' and he thought it was amazing. So we went to Medellín, Colombia to record the new version and it was a great experience," he stated.

Navarro, who is part of the trio along with Julio Ramírez and Bibi Marín, said their forthcoming fifth studio album includes other fusions than their romantic ballads. "Ten years ago there was a market for every genre, but now we're competing with so many other artists. We felt that we needed to make things a bit more fun, different and interesting," he told Billboard. "We have more confidence in what we type of music we want to put out there. We'll see how the audience takes this change, you never know. And I hope it will connect with people," he added.

Navarro, who is no stranger to taking risks, admitted that their last album released five years ago and which was more electronic based, did not feel organic and made no sense. "In 'Des/Amor' we found what we were looking for and the album is very different than from anything else we've done. Obviously we still have our ballad songs but we have tracks that have a reggae feeling to it," he said.
