Maluma's new single "Hawái," which dropped today (July 29) along with a drama-filled music video, finds the Colombian singer-songwriter heartbroken and plotting his next move to get his girl back -- even if that means crashing her wedding.

Produced by Rude Boyz, the melodious pop song was penned by Maluma, Keityn, Edgar Barrera and Bulle Nene with lyrics set in present day that tell the story of a toxic relationship and the aftermath of a breakup in the Instagram era. "Stop lying to yourself, the photo you put up with him saying he was your everything, I know you only posted it to make me jealous," Maluma sings.

The Colombian superstar wrote the storyline for music video, which was shot in Miami and directed by Jessy Terrero of Cinema Giants. The action-packed video opens with the scene of Maluma arguing with his girlfriend and after the huge blow up, they go their separate ways. On her wedding day to another man, he crashes the ceremony hoping she'll take him back. You'll want to stick around for a plot twist at the end.

"Hawái" follows Maluma's chart-topping "ADMV" (Amor De Mi Vida) single which scored him his 16 No. 1 on Billboard's Latin Airplay tally. "ADMV" was also penned by Maluma and Barrrera along with Vicente Barco and Miky La Sensa.

The tracks drops ahead of Maluma's forthcoming album, slated to be released later this year, according to Maluma who in an interview with Apple Music said, "I didn't know that I was about to release an album this year because all of these things are happening."

Adding, "my first album [this year] is about to come. I had this chance to know myself again in this crazy sh-- that is going on. So, I decided to make the music that I just wanted to do. “Hawái" for sure is the first single of my new album."
