Selena Gomez has dropped a tasty video for her new Spanish-language EP, Revelación, with the single ‘Baila Conmigo’.
The singer only announced her Spanish-language record this week and now she’s giving fans a first single from it today, January 29th, as per Pitchfork.
The song is produced by Tainy and features Puerto Rican artist Rauw Alejandro alongside Gomez. It follows ‘De Una Vez’, which was unveiled two weeks ago (both will feature on the seven-track EP).
The accompanying video is directed by Fernando Nogari and it certainly has an intoxicating international flavour to it: footage was shot in Los Angeles, Miami, as well as a small fishing village in Brazil.
The video begins with an unnamed woman watching Alejandro and Gomez performing on TV. This inspires her to get up off the sofa and dance to the song’s groove in several different places, including the beach.
In a press release for the song, Gomez explained her vision for the song: “With ‘Baila Conmigo’, I want to get everyone dancing,” she said.
“The video portrays the sense of isolation we all are experiencing right now and how music truly does connect us all no matter where we are in the world.”
Tainy discussed the varied sounds of ‘Baila Conmigo’, which translates as ‘Dance With Me’: “It was a really interesting song for me to work on with Selena, since it fuses an authentic reggaeton sound with elements like the plucked electric guitar that lean more pop. Rauw’s melodies captured that essence and complemented Selena’s very well. I’m excited for this one!”
“The fact an artist of Selena’s caliber considered me to collaborate on her project is a blessing,” added Alejandro. “‘Baila Conmigo’ is super catchy and sexy. I hope fans love this collaboration as much as I do.”
The Revelación EP is scheduled to be released on March 12th and you can pre-order it here.
