“It means a lot to me to be able to support a new generation of artists because when I started, I did not feel that support in Colombia and I don’t want them to go through that. It was other international artists and my loyal fans, who gave me that boost I needed to continue to thrive. I don’t want history to repeat itself, I want to see them shine, because there is a lot of talent in Colombia that deserve to be stars and fulfill their dreams, as much as I have been able to,» Maluma expressed.
The music video was shot in Medellín, Colombia by directors Camilo Bourbon and Oscar Vásquez from renowned Colombian production company 36 Grados. To watch the official video click HERE.
