The Bronx stands tall in “Yes,” the latest single by hometown hero Fat Joe. With help from two of hip-hop’s most monumental Latinx voices — Grammy-winning rapper Cardi B and Latin trap star Anuel AA — the prolific Puerto Rican-Cuban MC dropped the surprise new track at midnight on Thursday.

Fat Joe makes his mission crystal clear from the track’s onset. “Ass up, face down,” he repeats like a magic spell — presumably manifesting booty over a sample of Hector Lavoe and Willie Colón’s 1972 salsa hit, “Aguanilé.” The original song was inspired by the hybrid Yoruba and Spanish word, aguanilé, which practitioners of Santería used to denote a spiritual cleanse.
