Recently filmed in Miami under the supervision of critically-acclaimed Puerto Rican director Carlos Perez, the video portrays positivity and freedom from beginning to end -- fully reflecting a proudly out-of-the-closet Ricky Martin hitting a mature point in his career.

"The Best Thing About Me Is You," which was released in early November, has already reached #1 in Billboard's Latin Pop Airplay chart with its Spanish version, "Lo Mejor De Mi Vida Eres Tu." The video for that version will be released later today via Spanish-language channel Univision and its website.

The song is the first single off of Martin's highly-anticipated album, "Music+Soul+Sex (Musica+Alma+Sexo)," set for release on Feb. 1. The album is Martin's first studio release in more than 5 years, and includes contributions from Wisin y Yandel and Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte.
