Juanes is dropping his anticipated new single and video “Hermosa ingrata” on Friday (Jan. 27), but we’ve got an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip of the audio-visual project a day early.
In the sneak peek, you can hear a preview of the new single, inspired by old-school Colombian cumbia. “When I was in the studio with Sky and Mosty thinking about what we were going to do, I was listening to some cumbias from the ’60s and ’70s,” the chart-topping artist says in the BTS video. “From then on we created the song about a girl who is beautiful but is ungrateful and has made you suffer.”
“Hermosa ingrata” is the second advance track from his forthcoming visual album, Mis Planes Son Amarte. It follows the set’s first single “Fuego,” which reached No. 1 on Billboard‘s Latin Airplay chart.
On the latest episode of the Latin Connection Podcast, Juanes expands on the ambitious visual LP, which centers on a Colombian astronaut who travels through time and space to find the woman of his dreams.
Mis Planes Son Amarte is due in the upcoming months, along with a special feature on HBO and a tour. Below, watch the BTS clip for “Hermosa ingrata.”
