Name of catchy song

Hi everyone, I've got a song stuck in my head that was played a lot at Villa Tortuga (and also heard it in a taxi in Havana). It's got a slowish hip hop / dance beat with two males singers. The catchy part goes "[1st male singer] bailandooo.. [2nd male singer]: bailandooooo ...." I think that's what they're saying but if not it's something that sounds like that. It seems like a popular song so someone must know it!

"Vivir Mi Vida"

I suggest this only because it was played 57 times a day at our resort and won a latin grammy Nov 21 for Marc Anthony.

If not, let me know, I may know the song, which is from the early 90s, but the band name escapes me at the moment.

I know you said it was a slowish beat , but can you give more info .. Was it a reggaeton feel ? Perhaps a salsa or merengue ? Son?

Did it sound like something you would hear it a club ? That can help!

Whenever I hear a song I like, I always ask a Cuban before I leave ! Lol

I saw a song called Bailando on Lucas on Cubavision Internacional earlier.

Descemer Bueno and Gente de Zona.

Could that be the one ?

It might be Daddy Yankee's "Machucando"
