"Danza Kuduro" is a song from Don Omar's collaborative album Meet the Orphans released as the lead single from the album on August 15, 2010 through Machete Music and VI Music. It features singer Lucenzo, a France-based artist of Portuguese origin. "Danza Kuduro" was number one on the Hot Latin Songs, giving Don Omar his second US Billboard Hot Latin Songs number-one hit and Lucenzo his first. A remake of the song is also featured in the 2011 movie Fast Five as an ending song and is on the film's soundtrack album and on the Dutch edition of the soundtrack of Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension where it also served as the ending song on the closing titles and will be featured in the upcoming video game, WWE '12. In addition, the song is used as the plate appearance music for Detroit Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta.
The song is written by Don Omar, Faouze Barkati, Fabrice Toigo as well as Lucenzo who is also producer of the song. The music of "Danza Kuduro" (meaning the kuduro dance in English) is largely based on the bilingual Portuguese/English Lucenzo dance hit entitled "Vem danÃ§ar kuduro" featuring Big Ali, however most of the lyrics of "Danza Kuduro" are rewritten in Spanish. Kuduro is an Angolan type of music also very popular in Portugal and Balkan.
