Rising Latin pop singer-songwriter Jay Ulloa is taking himself back to the moments that inspired his steamy new single “Manos Al Aire” in the video that drops today (Nov. 9), the same day as his debut EP, Malas Noticias.

The visual, shot by Amber Park (Post Malone, Camila Cabello), captures the vibrancy of young love with a bevy of dreamy dating spots and a color palette that makes every scene pop. As the video’s main focal point, Ulloa exudes a confident charm that adds more heat to the sultry, passionate mix.

Ulloa says that “Manos Al Aire” is his “favorite song on the EP,” and its lyrical origins about a past relationship made it crucial that the video reflected his personal experience.

“When we were together, nothing else mattered,” Ulloa tells Billboard. “We would go on adventures like watching the sunset in Malibu, falling asleep under the stars or just laying on an inflatable raft by the pool. I wanted to show what it was like feeling wild, free and just living in the moment.”

With his new EP finally out and an impressive visual to match, Ulloa takes his first big step toward showing the world where he comes from and what he is capable of as a young, independent artist. Like everything that surrounds Ulloa, his future seems nothing but bright.
