BTS on Carlos Vives' music video shoot for "Al Filo de tu Amor"

Ahead of Carlos Vives' new single "Al filo de tu amor" and its music video set to drop Jan. 23, Billboard can exclusively premiere a sneak peek of the clip and share behind-the-scene photos from the shoot in New York. 

The new pop/vallenato song tells the story of a local DJ, played by Vives, who is sprung on the Colombian beauty queen Ariadna Gutiérrez who lures him in with her charm and then disappears. Heartbroken, Vives embarks on a journey throughout the cold streets of New York to find the love of his life. The West Side Story-inspired video was directed by Felipe Montoya from Mestiza Films.

"The songs are born naturally, and in this occasion I mention New York, and there's a reason behind it," Vives says in a statement. "I have a special connection with that city and with a community that opened their doors and have loved us very much throughout the years ... listen New York, because I am singing to you."

"Al filo de tu amor" follows the Colombian artist and Shakira's Latin Grammy-winning, chart-topping hit "La bicicleta." Both songs will be featured in the singer/songwriter's forthcoming studio album titled Vives.
