The dramatic video for the single proves that true love never dies.

Renowned Mexican pop-rock trio Reik recently premiered their latest single “Me Niego” featuring urban Latin sensations Ozuna and Wisin. An action-packed drama, the heart-racing video for the song was directed by Nuno Gómez and filmed throughout several locations in Miami.
 
In it, the men tell a story of unrequited love, albeit with an unwavering, yet seemingly futile determination not to give up on the one that apparently has gotten away. But just how blindly in love are these guys? Let the lyric translation spell things out for you below. 

It's difficult to open my eyes and no longer see you
Your scent on the bed is still intact
I've looked for you in my dreams, desiring to have you
And I don't find your face despite my efforts.

Your pictures are still in every corner of
the house and the silence speaks to me about you.
There's way too much space since you've been gone,
I would give everything that remains with
me today just to have you, so that you'd return.

I refuse to lose you, to never see you again.
I refuse to accept that our relationship is over.
I refuse to lose you, to never see you again.
I refuse to accept that it's over, that our relationship is over.

I can't get used to you not being here;
nothing is the same without you.
I know that in the world there's no one else similar
To what you did to me, so I can't forget you.
You love me in your way. My mind wished to find myself.
My heart says that it waits for you,
that it would give anything for you to return.
 
But you, girl, with that sting
You say how to forget you. And in your eyes I see that you lie.
Now I can say: love, suffer the way it feels.
I'll get you out of my mind and it will be sudden.

But you, girl, with that sting
You say how to forget you. And in your eyes I see that you lie.
Now I can say: love, suffer the way it feels.
I'll get you out of my mind and it will be sudden.
I refuse to lose you, to never see you again.
I refuse to accept that our relationship is over.
I refuse to lose you, to never see you again.
I refuse to accept that it's over, that our relationship is over.

The loneliness is killing me.
It hurts to know that you're not here.
I want to think that it's all a lie
And that you'll answer when I call, that you'll come back in the night.
We can still give it a chance, don't pull away from my life.

I am still here, confused and lonely.
Crying at night, dying by the day.
Living through this agony, I can't understand that you're no longer mine.
The circle closes and the pain buries me.
It's so hard to live in this war.
I refuse, although you say I'm blind.
Ever since you left I'm a rover.
I arrive late to every commitment.
I'm distracted, can't stop looking at your photo.
If you're my life, why do you liquidate me?
I didn't cause your departure. I need your scent.
I need your heat. I need to see you on top of me in your underwear.

Your pictures are still in every corner of the
house and the silence speaks to me about you.
There's way too much space since you've been gone,
I would give everything that remains with
me today just to have you, so that you'd return.

I refuse to lose you, to never see you again.
I refuse to accept that our relationship is over.
I refuse to lose you, to never see you again.
I refuse to accept that it's over, that our relationship is over.
