"Sola" was written by J Balvin, composed by Sky, a DJ from Medellín and recorded in Miami and his natal Medellín. In an interview with El Espectador, Balvin was asked about the production and the intention of the song. He said "Is a commercial rap designed for the clubs... the lyrics isn't vulgar is about the call that one is waiting to go out and have a good time".
