In the Zone (song)

"In the Zone" is a song by Puerto Rican recording artist Ivy Queen featuring Haitian rapper Wyclef Jean. It was composed by Queen, Deborah Castillero, Aaron King and Omar Navarro and released on February 9, 1999, as the lead single from her second studio album The Original Rude Girl; the song is a hip hop track. The collaboration with Wyclef Jean helped elevate Ivy Queen's status and expose her to American audiences. An accompanying music video was shot and released, it was produced by George Barnes. A remix version was recorded and included on the album featuring extra verses from both Queen and Jean; the song managed to chart at number 38 on the Billboard Rhythmic Top 40. In 1998, while Wyclef Jean was touring Puerto Rico, Ivy Queen attended one of his concerts. Wyclef sent an invitation for fans to come up on stage if they thought they could flow. With encouragement from friends, Queen gained the courage to do her thing. Needless to say her singing and rapping ability amazed Wyclef enough that they collaborated on a track in the studio, thus "In The Zone" was born.

"In The Zone" was written by Ivy Queen, Wyclef Jean, Omar Navarro, known artistically as Gran Omar, Deborah Castillero and Aaron King. Gran Omar was Queen's then-husband at the time; the song was recorded at The Hit Factory in New York City. It is a hip hop song, a departure from the musical styles of reggaeton featured on her debut effort. Queen's verses are sung in Spanish, Jean's verses are sung in English. However, Queen can be heard speaking English as well such as in the chorus where Jean says "Ayo, where you from Ivy Queen" where she replies with "Puerto Rico, one time"; the official release features five tracks. The first is a dance remix of the song; the third track is a salsa version produced by DJ Nelson. A hip hop remix by King Saphreem is track number four. According to Patricia Meschino of the Miami New Times the song was a solid collaboration with Jean which introduced her to a new audience. Following the album's fourth quarter release on December 15, 1998, Ivy Queen embarked on a tour shortly after throughout Puerto Rico and the United States.

The song was released February 9, 1999. An accompanying music video was shot and released, it was produced by George Barnes. A second music video was directed by Gabriel Goldberg.
