The music video for "Forgiveness" -- the English version of Nicky Jam and Enrique Iglesias’ hit single “El Perdón” -- is finally out.

“Forgiveness,” instead, shows the duo auditioning for a part in a play that will place them alongside a beautiful star. The setting -- an old theater -- is gorgeous, as is director Jessy Terrero’s direction. But the flippant story line strikes an incongruous note with the plaintiveness of the lyrics, particularly at the very end.
