J Balvin is feelin’ blue…
The 35-year-old Colombian reggaeton singerhas released the official music video for “Azul,” a sensual reggaeton track about a woman he’s crushing on.
The appropriately blue-hued animated clip also tells the story of how he’s trying to move on from her.
In the music video, which dropped earlier this week, J Balvin goes through a heartbreak, reminiscing about the good and bad times in his relationship. To try to forget about his ex-girlfriend, he orders a life-size, blowup doll to give him company. Instead, he’s tainted by the memories and tries to keep occupied by drinking, working out, and hanging out with his faithful puppy. And he even cries glitter tears.
“‘Azul’ is one of the most ridiculous ideas I’ve probably ever had,” director Colin Tilley previously told Billboard.
“[J Balvin] looked at me on FaceTime with the straightest face and said, ‘I love it.’ It’s one of those ideas that you could either seriously hate or love. And that’s what we strive for: You either will love it or hate it. It’s also about the feeling you get from color because when we listen to music, we see colors, you feel a color, and that’s the beauty of music. Let’s make you feel something.”
“My goal was for every video that drops is for it to up the previous one,” Tilley explained. “If we’re not doing that, then we’re not doing our job and there’s no point in releasing every single video.”
