About the song, Alaina Castillo says, "párate is a song about feeling so weak, mentally and physically, that you eventually just get fed up with it and decide to say, enough, get up & start moving towards the life you want to live and the growth that you desire. It’s talking about a change or a movement that is started by trying to overcome those challenges."
“¡Párate!” follows the release of the artist’s antisocial party anthem “tonight”, another transitional song for Alaina taking her from introvert singer-songwriter to bedroom pop star in the making. Alaina wrote the track as an anti-social party anthem, re-emphasizing her own anti-social lifestyle and encouraging her listeners to embrace their solitude, especially in these uncertain times.
