C. Tangana is celebrating his love for a Dominican genre…
The 31-year-old Spanish rapper has joined voices with Nathy Peluso to release the single “Ateo,” an ode to bachata.
Tangana first explored his love for bachata on “Tu Me Dejaste de Querer,” but now he’s teamed up Peluso for another twist on the genre.
The genre-smashing artists first set the tone for the single’s release with a provocative teaser showcasing their bachata skills that stirred up some controversy. At its core, the track is a love song that narrates a love so pure it makes an atheist believe.
“I was an atheist but I believe now,” they sing. “All it took was for a miracle like you to come down to earth.”
About the song, Peluso said, “I immediately felt it was a classic. And when we worked together at the studio I reconfirmed that same feeling. It’s a project with a marvelous universe and a fantastic video that is truly a piece of art, and a very interesting topic that challenges us all. Long live Romanticism!”
The cinematic film that accompanies the single, shot in Spain’s Toledo Cathedral, marks Tangana’s directorial debut.
