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.
