The trailblazing acts partnered up in Macau to film the chic music video to their trilingual track, share some exclusive reflections with Billboard and show off their burgeoning friendship.

In their interview, Super Junior and Reik share their admiration for one another.

“Without a doubt, Reik was highly recommended by others,” says Super Junior singer Leetuk. “They were so willing to collaborate with us so we would like to send our appreciation to Reik.”

Meanwhile, Reik see their SuJu collab as their latest step forward after a huge 2018 on the charts where they scored their first No. 1 on Billboard‘s Latin Airplay chartwith “Me Niego,” as well as their second No. 1 on the Latin Pop Songs Airplay chart with “Amigos con Derechos” in November.
