MALUMA
RELEASES HIS NEW SINGLE & VIDEO

“HAWÁI”

MIAMI, Florida (July 29, 2020). Global Latin music idol MALUMA has just released his hot new single “HAWÁI” along with its music video.

The melodious banger written by Maluma, Keityn, Edgar Barrera and Bull Nene, was produced by Rude Boyz. It tells the classic tale of a relationship breakup set in the modern Instagram age, where the story one tells and the pictures one posts can be deceiving.

The music video for “HAWÁI” is a drama-filled mini-movie, shot in Miami by renown director Jessy Terrero of Cinema Giants, with a storyline written by Maluma himself that takes him through a rollercoaster of situations and emotions in the dramatic aftermath of the end of a relationship. Of course, as in any work of fiction, any similarity to actual persons, places or events, is purely coincidental.

“HAWÁI” is part of Maluma’s upcoming album Papi Juancho dropping later this year.

ROMBAI RELEASES NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO “Te Extraño :(”

ROMBAI RELEASES NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO “Te Extraño :(”

MIAMI (July 10, 2020) – Today, Rombai adds to its colorful urban-cumbia canon with the single “Te Extraño :(” (I Miss You). This song is available starting 7 p.m. ET, July 9, from all digital-music outlets, and the music video can be enjoyed on Rombai’s YouTube channel.
 
Interestingly, the words “te extraño” never appear in the lyrics. However, the title’s feeling can be felt throughout this song, which uses rhythm to send a heartfelt message and express the emotions that people all over the world are experiencing in these times. Written by Nicolás “Kony” González and Laureano “Dime Lauro” Pardo and produced by Fermazel, vocalist Fer Vázquez goes into vivid detail about how he longs to be reunited with his partner: “Yo tengo una obsesión con tu cuello y con tu olor, no puedo dejar de pensarte” (I’m obsessed with your neck and your scent, I can’t stop thinking about you.)
 
Fer emphasizes that though the lyrics are romantic, the feeling of missing someone during pandemic-induced lockdowns applies to a wide variety of relationships: “This song reflects the challenges that we are currently facing just to enjoy time with our closest loved ones. We can’t give hugs, we can’t greet with a kiss, we can’t have the physical contact that is culturally important to us to communicate love. These changes have taken a toll. So ‘Te Extraño :(’ is a sincere song that I’m releasing from the heart for all the people who we miss. It could be someone far away or even near who we still can’t connect with the way we would like to. I hope you like the song as much as I do and you enjoy it; it was made with love.”
 
On the music video, directed by Ignacio Seijo and Maxi Muñíz, Fer and his dancers are warmly dressed for the winter in their native Uruguay, as they show off their moves for an early-morning outdoor shoot at a wind farm. Fer’s charisma, street fashion and energy are on full display, to the delight of Rombai’s multitudes of fans.
 
In the days leading up to the release of “Te Extraño :(”Rombai has generated buzz for this single with a series of Instagram stories that reference the song’s title and encourage fans to open up about who they’re missing during these times.
 
“Te Extraño :(” follows in the footsteps of Rombai’s previous single “Te Va Doler” (It’s Going to Hurt You), which was released in May and has surpassed 7 million views with its adorable “dog dad” scenes and its message about pet adoption.
 
With “Te Extraño :(”, Rombai gives us a captivating way to reach out to our loved ones by dedicating them an “I miss you,” as we share hope for face-to-face reunions in the near future.

SILVESTRE DANGOND RECEIVES IMPORTANT MUSICAL RECOGNITION

SILVESTRE DANGOND RECEIVES IMPORTANT 
MUSICAL RECOGNITION DURING THE VIRTUAL CEREMONY OF THE ASCAP LATIN MUSIC AWARDS

The singer-songwriter received the ASCAP Latin Music Award for his song
“VIVIR BAILANDO” alongside Maluma

MIAMI, FL – July 7th, 2020- There’s no better gift than receiving compliments and applauses for these great songs. Today Silvestre Dangond enjoys once again an important recognition for his music in the annual edition of the ASCAP Latin Music Awards, that was celebrated virtually today. 

“I enjoyed creating this song because I never thought that Maluma would collaborate with me. When we wrote this song I felt as if Colombia was inside of my heart, I felt rhythms, I felt folklore and combining it with urban music created a very interesting mix; this is why I ended up doing two versions of the song. I thank Maluma, Andres Castro, Sony Latin, Edgar and all the team that supports me every time that we write and create beautiful songs, like this one. ASCAP Awards once again thank you for taking into consideration the talent; I’ll always be thankful”  added Silvestre Dangond.

The Colombian singer was awarded the ASCAP Latin Music Award for composition of the song Vivir Bailando alongside Maluma, a catchy song that blends all the traditional rhythm of vallenato and a touch of urban. 

Both artists are at the peak of their powers, delighting the world with their unique and danceable styles. “Vivir Bailando” is co-written by Andrés Castro, Edgar Barrera, Daniel Buitrago and Sharo Torres along with Silvestre and Maluma. Showing off each singer’s respective gift – tropical and urban – this unique track blends their voices and their artistry into a memorable collaboration. 

Starting today at 10:30 AM ET and concluding July 9, exclusive photos and videos from Latin music’s top stars, songwriters, producers and publishers will be revealed throughout the day via Instagram, Twitter and Facebook on @ASCAPLatino and @ASCAP with the hashtags #ElPremioASCAP and #ASCAPAwards

The complete list of winners is available on the ASCAP website: www.ascap.com/latinawards20.
