CARLOS RIVERA & MALUMA TEAM UP ON THE HEARTFELT SINGLE AND VIDEO “100 AÑOS”
MIAMI (November 19, 2020) – Mexico’s most beloved contemporary-pop singer, Carlos Rivera, joins forces with the Colombian superstar Maluma to give life to “100 Años,” their surprising mariachi-themed collaboration. This single is available from all digital-music outlets, and the music video can be enjoyed on Carlos’ YouTube channel.
No one expected a team-up between these two young talents, and certainly not a ranchera song. But the chemistry and brotherhood that unite Carlos Rivera and Maluma gave them the power to break geographical and musical barriers.
Due to the pandemic, each singer was required to record his audio and video separately – Carlos in Mexico City and Maluma in Miami. But in spite of the distance, the artists could send greetings and give a toast to their friendship, showing the mutual affection that they have for each other’s culture on this video directed by Anita Tillero and Clara Pablo.
Both singers are backed by mariachi, as they pour all of their sentiment into this heartbreaking song written by Carlos Rivera, Maluma, Édgar Barrera and Vicente Barco. As the lyrics say, “aunque digan que no hay mal que duró más de 100 años, no quisieras ser el primer idiota en comprobarlo, un amor como el nuestro sabes que no se ve a diario, un amor como el nuestro vale la pena salvarlo” (though it’s said that nothing bad lasts 100 years, you wouldn’t want to be the first idiot to be the exception. A love like ours doesn’t come along every day, a love like ours is worth saving).
This powerful duet joins Carlos’ long list of spectacular achievements in 2020. He started the year with his chart-topping single “Perdiendo La Cabeza” (Losing My Head), which features cutting-edge Latin rhythms. He also released the keepsake Sessions Recorded At Abbey Road on vinyl. Shortly thereafter, he used the time during lockdown to record the critically acclaimed acoustic-covers EP Si Fuera Mía (If It Was Mine).
Tomorrow, Thursday, November 19, Carlos will serve for the first time as co-host of the Latin GRAMMY® ceremony, now in its 21st annual edition.
Meanwhile, Maluma’s smash single “ADMV” is nominated for Song of the Year, and his recent single “Hawái Remix” with The Weeknd has surpassed 43 million views in less than two weeks.
Without a doubt, fans of both artists will embrace “100 Años” as Carlos Rivera and Maluma do justice to their extraordinary talent and charisma.
