GWAT?! Watagatapitusberry!!! EL QUE!???
One of the few successful rappers to come from the Dominican Republic Sensato Del’ Patio’s success came due to his hit entitled “Watagatapitusberry”.
As the story was told by Sensato in an interview, it was 4 A.M. in the story when the idea surged, “What would a man who does not speak English, say to a girl if he wanted to tell her anything?”
The result is a slew of phrases that don’t really make sense, mixed with some of the first words a non-English speaker might learn in the English Language. The song starts off “Henny con Cranberry, I’m feeling so dirty, baby, you Spaghetti? Let’s go I’m ready! Tirame por el Blackberry, Vamono en el Ferry, Be Happy Don’t worry! WATAGATAPITUSBERRY!”
Originally performed with Black Point, the song was later remixed by Cuban artist “Mr. 305″, Pitbull spreading the fame from the United States to Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.
