Translation of Taki Taki

Not to be confused with the spicy corn snack Takis, Taki Taki is the name of a red-hot song by DJ Snake, Ozuna, Cardi B, and Selena Gómez. Both the title and several of the verses use the term taki taki, but just how do you translate taki taki?!

According to Cardi B, taki taki is simply a fun-sounding word Ozuna made up, but a closer look at the translation of the lyrics to this risqué bilingual hit suggest it could mean a few different things.

The Sound of a Kiss

One line that Ozuna and company repeat seems to suggest that taki taki represents the sound of a kiss. Let's take a look!

SpanishEnglish
Un besito bien suavecito, bebé.
A soft little kiss, baby.
Taki taki.
Smack smack.

A Body Part

In her English-language section of the song, Selena Gómez talks about her taki taki in a way that suggests it's a body part. Word on the street is that it could refer to anything from a person's mouth to something a bit more sexually explicit. Take a look and see what you think!

EnglishSpanish
What my taki taki wants, my taki taki gets.Lo que quiere mi taki taki, consigue mi taki taki.

What Does Taki Taki Mean?

Considering that a lot of Taki Taki focuses on the theme of female sexual pleasure, we're inclined to think taki taki is a sneaky way for DJ Snake, Ozuna, Cardi B, and Selena Gómez to openly refer to certain body parts without getting the song title slapped with an "explicit" tag.

Both the Spanish and English lyrics of this song are explicit, so keep that in mind before you blast it at any family parties!
