So let’s talk Valentine’s Day.

Let’s talk Valentine’s Day.

What is the one gift that you would want a girl to give you?

The one gift I would want a girl to give me? I just want a kiss! That’s all – you ain’t gotta buy me nothin'. [Laughs]

What about your Valentine’s playlist?

My Valentine’s playlist…you’re gonna have to play some Ginuwine. You’re gonna have to play some 112. You’re gonna have to play some Confession – Usher’s – back in the day. You know, a little bit of Prince Royce there, too.

Which songs?

I would play, like, "Addicted" by Prince Royce.

[Laughs] Right, right.

But definitely some Ginuwine, some 112, some Usher. You know, I think, I grew up listening to those. That’s from back in the day when romance was heavy. R&B was heavy. And I enjoy those songs.

What has been the worst Valentine’s Day you’ve ever had?

The worst Valentine’s Day? I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad Valentine’s Day, I mean…c’mon, y’all know I never get a bad Valentine. Nah. Um, no, I’ve never really had – I don’t have a bad Valentine’s Day. I never really think…it doesn’t come up to my mind.

What about the best?

The best? Oh, I’ve got some good Valentines. Nah I’m just kidding. Um, the best Valentine’s Day? You know, I think that Valentine’s Day is only as good as you want it to be. You know, I don’t think it should be anything fancy, nothing crazy. As long as you’re spending time with that person that’s special, I think that’s a great Valentine’s Day.

Aw, that’s sweet. We like that answer. [Laughs]

It’s true.

Okay, so we wanna know: How do you keep your hair to stay like that? You gotta tell us your secret.

I don’t know – I can’t say the secret because then...everybody’s been biting my hair, man! I’ve been seeing everybody – I’m gonna have to change my hairstyle, man. I’ve been seeing everybody trying to get the hair-do.

Yeah, Shakira just posted a picture of her son, and his hair is straight up like this, like yours.



Shout out to him! I’m gonna go bald. [Laughs]. Nah, just kidding. It takes me about 15 or 20 minutes, dude. I got somebody there that helps me…do the thing, you know.

So there’s nothing special in there?

A little bit of hairspray.

That’s it?

It’s not as hard as you think it is. It’s kind of soft.

All right. We'll believe you. Any last words for Latina.com?

Yeah more things coming with Pepsi. Catch me on La Voz Kids – it’s gonna be fun. I got a new tour coming. My new video, "Te Robare," should be out next week. We got some cool stuff. Everything’s all-good.
