As he continues to make the rounds with his latest single “Hawai,” Maluma debuted at No. 10 on the Hot Latin Songs chart dated August 15, marking his 12th No. 10.

In “Hawai,” released on July 29, the Colombian superstar sings about a relationship that couldn’t work out. With lyrics such as “I know it’s going great but he’s not going to love you as I love you,” the song can easily become a song for that ex that you still love.

The music video shows Maluma arguing with his girlfriend, breaking up, a confrontation at her wedding with another man and a surprising plot twist.

"It's amazing to see how much people are embracing this song that it is quickly becoming a solid hit single!" Maluma previously told Billboard. "I can’t thank my fans enough for this.”

The romantic urban bop, co-written by Maluma alongside Keityn, Edgar Barrera, and Bull Nene and produced by Rude Boy, is the first single off Papi Juancho, Maluma’s fifth studio album due out later this year.

Check out the complete lyrics translated to English below:


Stop lying
The photo that you posted with him, saying he’s your everything
Baby, I know you so well, I know it was to make me jealous
I’m not going to say who, but they saw you crying for me
For me, they saw you

Let me tell you
It seems that he treats you well, that he’s a true gentleman
But that won’t change the fact that I was here first
I know it’s going great but he’s not going to love you as I love you

You may not need anything, apparently nothing
Vacationing in Hawaii, my congratulations
Everything you’re posting on Instagram is beautiful
So that I can see how it’s going for you, so I can see
You may not need anything, apparently nothing
Vacationing in Hawaii, my congratulations
Everything you’re posting on Instagram is beautiful
So that I can see how it’s going for you, but you’re harming yourself
Because nothing can buy love

Lie to all your followers
Tell them that things are better now
I don’t think you’ll ignore me when I call you
There won’t be any more lovers after me
We were one
We would do it before breakfast
We smoked hookah and I passed you the smoke
And now in this war, no one wins
And if you ask me, it’s no one's fault
Sometimes people get overwhelmed with issues
Let me talk, please, don’t interrupt me
If I did something wrong to you, then forgive me
People are going to believe you, you’re a good actress in that role
Baby, but you’re not happy with him

You may not need anything, apparently nothing
Vacationing in Hawaii, my congratulations
Everything you’re posting on Instagram is beautiful
So that I can see how it’s going for you, so I can see
You may not need anything, apparently nothing
Vacationing in Hawaii, my congratulations
Everything you’re posting on Instagram is beautiful
So that I can see how it’s going for you, but you’re harming yourself
Because nothing can buy love

Stop lying
The photo that you posted with him, saying he’s your heaven
Mamacita
Baby, I know you so well, I know it was to make me jealous
Maluma, baby
I’m not going to say who, but they saw you crying for me
Hahahaha
For me, they saw you
Papi Juancho
