Esteman has blessed hopeless romantics around the world with “Hasta Que Tu Me Quieras,” whose music video premieres on Billboard below.
Translated to “Until you love me,” the song combines alternative pop rhythms with vintage ’70s disco melodies. With lyrics such as “what will happen to us, if you walk away and leave me behind?/ What will I do without you?,” the Latin Grammy-nominated artist hailing from Bogota, Colombia, brings to life a song about feeling confused after heartbreak.
“With ‘Hasta Que Tú Me Quieras’ I went in search of a nostalgic sound that reminds us of the classic songs of past eras,” he elaborated in an official statement. “It’s an audiovisual letter to ask for forgiveness, in which the music and lyrics find themselves in the middle of a light-hearted sadness, that sometimes makes us want to dance, other times to cry, but there’s always a light that remains.”
To give context to the heartfelt lyrics, Esteman — who has collaborated with acts such as Natalia Lafourcade and Mon Laferte — released a retro music video filmed at an amusement park and directed by Oliver G. Tavizon. Surrounded by absolutely no one and wearing a gray suit, the Colombian artist is seen jamming to the song on the bumper cars, carousel and Ferris wheel, among other fair rides.
“Hasta Que Tu Me Quieras,” which was co-written by Esteman and Claudia Brant and produced by Adan Jodorowsky, marks the first single from his upcoming fourth studio album.
