What Does Daddy Yankee's "Gasolina" Mean?

Daddy Yankee's "Gasolina" Is 13 Years Old and Still One of the Best Reggaeton Songs

Daddy Yankee's "Gasolina" first came out in 2004 and took the world by storm when it debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Latin Albums chart. The chorus is the most famous part of the song and reads "a ella le gusta la gasolina, dame más gasolina, como le encanta la gasolina, dame más gasolina." The direct translation of these lyrics is "she likes gasoline, give me more gasoline, how she loves the gasoline, give me more gasoline," but according to Daddy Yankee, the song is "about energy independence."

"The verse was so simple and easy to remember. The word gasolina — everyone in the world knew what it meant. And I think part of the success of the track was people looking for some hidden meaning: Was I talking about alcohol, about drugs?" he told Billboard in 2014. "That track is completely literal. It's one of the most innocent songs I've ever written."

This is the song that catapulted Daddy Yankee to international fame and led his album to become the top-selling Latin one of 2005 and the entire decade.
