‘NO SE ME QUITA’
On a day like this, Hurricane Dorian churning out there in the ocean, happenings in the American government, BREXIT and BoJo upsetting one of the oldest democracies in the word (their Queen is in jeopardy), you need something lighthearted and fun.
Ricky Martin and Maluma have done just that!
The official video for the most recent collaboration dropped a couple of days ago.
Take me to the beach guys!!
Juan Luis Londoño Arias (born 28 January 1994), known professionally as Maluma, is a Colombian singer and songwriter, signed to Sony Music Colombia and Sony Latin. Born and raised in Medellín, he developed an interest in music at a young age, and began recording songs at age 16. He released his debut album, Magia, a year later in 2012. However, his breakthrough album was 2015’s Pretty Boy, Dirty Boy, which led to successful collaborations with artists Thalía, Shakira and Ricky Martin. He released F.A.M.E. in 2018, to further commercial success. He followed it up with 11:11, released the next year. Maluma has several singles that have charted within the top 10 on Billboard Hot Latin Songs, including “Felices los 4“, “Borró Cassette“, “El Perdedor” and “Corazón“. He has worked with several international artists such as Shakira, XXXTentacion, Anitta and Madonna. His collaborative efforts “Chantaje” with Shakira and “Medellín” with Madonna have reached the top of the Hot Latin Songs. He has won a Latin Grammy Award and two Latin American Music Awards. Musically, Maluma’s songs have been described as reggaeton, Latin trap, and pop.
Enrique Martín Morales (born December 24, 1971), better known as Ricky Martin is a Puerto Rican singer, actor and author who is widely regarded as the “King of Latin Pop“. He holds dual American and Spanish citizenship and began his career at age 12 with the all-boy pop group Menudo.
After five years with the group, he released several Spanish-language solo albums throughout the 1990’s. Since the beginning of his solo career in 1991, Ricky Martin has sold over 70 million albums, making him one of the best-selling Latin music artists of all time. He also acted on stage and on TV in Mexico, where he achieved modest stardom. In 1994, he appeared on the US TV soap opera General Hospital, playing a Puerto Rican singer.
He also ranks among the most influential Latin artists of all time.
Colombian hitmaker Maluma has just released the video for “No Se Me Quita” — featuring the unsinkable Puerto Rican superstar, Ricky Martin. A memorable highlight off Maluma’s latest album, 11:11, the starry-eyed dance hall number marks the duo’s second collaboration, following their 2016 single “Vente Pa’ Ca.”
In “No Se Me Quita,” or “It Doesn’t Go Away,” the Latin playboys recount a memorable kiss from the night before – and the unforgettable sabor, or taste, of a new lover’s lips. “And now it has me,” sings Martin, “Mind on the moon and feet on the floor.”
The video was shot in Miami by Latin pop’s most trusted director, Nuno Gomes, who’s also directed clips for previous Maluma singles: “HP”, “11PM” and “Instinto Natural (feat. Sech).” Though a showstopper in his own right, Martin plays wingman to Maluma, who plots to steal a kiss from the leading lady of the lifeguards. After putting on an unconvincing act of self-drowning – that is, dunking a bucket of cold water over his head – Maluma pretends to collapse onto the sand, where a dark-haired woman races to resuscitate him.
(Longtime Martin fans may recognize the link between Gomes’ underwater scenes and the similarly nautical video for Martin’s 2000 hit, “She Bangs.”)
A representative for Martin confirms that, after an epic summer spent politically organizing in Puerto Rico, the Grammy-winning artist is readying new music of his own. In the meantime, catch Maluma on his upcoming North American tour, which kicks off September 6th in San Diego’s Pechanga Arena.
