VF7 is kicking off 2021 strong, releasing the remix for “No Te Quiero Ver” in collaboration with Jay Wheeler on Friday (Jan. 29).
Rather than a remix, the song could easily be considered a brand new song. The updated version comes just over a year after the urbana newcomer dropped the original track in summer 2019.
Released via Sora and Company and distributed by The Orchard, VF7’s sugary vocals have matured. Her voice maintains dulcet but deeper and engages beautifully with Wheeler’s romantic tones.
“No Te Quiero Ver” tells the story of two people who are better off alone. It’s a heartbreaker, yet empowering: “You come back and do it all over again / I don’t want to see you again / You left me alone in the street / You damaged me / That’s why I don’t want to see.”
But the real game-changer is the melodies produced by Mr. NaisGai and Carlos Navarro. The song is a melancholic, slow-tempo reggaeton that transitions into a catchy rock beat with heavy drums and electric guitar. It taps into the new musical trend of urban-alternative fusions à la Bad Bunny’s El Último Tour del Mundo.
A music video filmed by director Abner Maldonado (Abez Media) at the Orlando Skate Park shows both artists hanging out at the park as a bittersweet love story between two skaters unfolds.
“No Te Quiero Ver (Remix)” forms part of VF7’s forthcoming debut album Núcleo out February 19.
