It was 20 years ago tomorrow that latin-pop explosion torchbearer Ricky Martin dropped his self-titled English debut solo album. While “Livin’ La Vida Loca” would go on to become the song of the summer and define an era of pop music, what goes under-referenced is that the remix featured Terror Squad.

That’s right, a young Big Pun, Fat Joe and Cuban Linx rapped alongside Ricky Martin for the track’s hip-hop infused official b-side. It’s time to revisit the “Livin’ La Vida Loca” remix in all its 1999 glory.
