Juanes Goes EDM, Debuts New Song With Cedric Gervais 'Este Amor'

Omar Cruz


Who says EDM and Latin pop can’t mix? First Afrojack and Luis Fonsi shared a historic moment onstage at the Billboard Latin Music Awards last month, and now Juanes holds court with French DJ/producer Cedric Gervais on the main stage of the fourth annual Sunset Music Festival in Tampa over Memorial Day weekend.

Introducing the Colombian superstar before a crowd of almost 30,000 on the fest’s rain-soaked opening day Saturday, Gervais listed off Juanes’ many accomplishments (among them having sold millions of albums and won more Latin Grammys than we can count) -- but not before shouting “¿Donde está mi gente Latina?” in his best Spanish.

The 30 Most Influential Latin Artists of All Time

This being Florida, Juanes didn’t exactly need an introduction. The crowd instantly went wild -- and if you look closely you can spot a few Colombian flags -- as Juanes took the stage to perform “Este Amor,” his new collaboration with Gervais.

The track starts off showcasing Juanes’ vocals and slowly builds to an ethereal, fist-pumping climax.
