Lali Reveals How Her 'Caliente' Collaboration With Pabllo Vittar Was Born

Leave it to Lali Esposito and Pabllo Vittar to drop the hottest collaboration of the year -- literally!

The Argentine pop singer and Brazilian artist officially premiered their music video for “Caliente” on Billboard Wednesday night (Nov. 13). The sexy clip, filmed on the sunny beaches of Rio de Janeiro, shows the two bombshells singing and dancing in their colorful bathing suits. Overall, “Caliente” shows everything Lali and Pabllo portray through their music: fierceness, sexiness, and girl power.

In an interview with Billboard, Lali talked about the collaboration, saying that the Brazilian drag queen was the perfect fit for her single. “It was the perfect fusion of what Pabllo is and of what I am and you can feel that in the song. It was genuine,” she says.

For the song, Lali admitted she hard to learn how to speak Portuguese. “Pabllo sang in Spanish and I sang in Portuguese,” she says. “It's nice for the fandoms and everyone who listens to the song to understand the fusion of culture, countries, and music.”
