From NME.com "The unlikely pairing, which sees the Brazilian legend’s vocals being contrasted against the masterful guitar work of the Mexican duo, came about after they were introduced by producer and mutual friend Jorge Berlanga. Pelé originally wrote the song alongside Brazilian musician Ruria Duprat in 2005, but it has received a new musical twist after Rodrigo Y Gabriela came onboard."
