Image Just when music listeners think they’ve heard everything possible from the underground-turned-international music genre of reggaeton, Machete Music / Ammo Musik management has teamed up one of their top reggaeton recording artists from the states with one of Puerto Rico’s premier lyricists to produce the smash hit, “What You Wanna Do (Habla Claro),” released this past week. Machete’s Noztra, known by many as ‘The Real King of NY,’ in planning the features for his upcoming album, A Mi Manera, decided a track with Flow Factory's sensation Arcangel was imperative to his album as well as his movement.

“Arcangel is the top emcee out in PR right now and I’m the face of Reggaeton in NY, so it had to happen,” said Noztra. “What You Wanna Do” is foreshadowed to open doors for Noztra while it stands as the first track he’s done with a major artist from abroad in Puerto Rico. The song, produced by Myztiko (best known for his work with Rakim y Ken-Y, Cruzito and Noztra), has generated a large amount of positive feedback as it combines a mellow, catchy beat with a grundgy, crunk vibe.

As Noztra has a few other surprise album features in the works, Arcangel will show up again on A Mi Manera as well as on tour with him. “This is the brand new me,” commented Noztra. “A Mi Manera is going to be something totally different from what's out there, trust me.” Be on the lookout for Noztra’s A Mi Manera coming 2007.
