Carlos Rivera is (re)mixing things up…
After surprising fans with his Maluma-assisted “100 Años” last fall, the 34-year-old Mexican singer has recruited Regional Mexican group Calibre 50 for an epic remix.
The remix dropped last weekend, just about three months after the original’s premiere on November 19, 2020.
“Ay doloooor!! Bring out the tequilas!!!!” Rivera expressed on social media.
The original song showcases Rivera and Maluma pouring their hearts out to the mariachi melodies.
On the remix, Calibre 50, led by frontman and accordionist Edén Muñoz, gives the track a norteño-banda twist.
The lyrics to the song — co-written by Rivera, Maluma, Muñoz, Édgar Barrera, and Vicente Barco — express a relationship worth salvaging: “Though it’s said that nothing bad lasts 100 years, I wouldn’t want to be the first idiot to be the exception / A love like ours doesn’t come along every day, a love like ours is worth saving.”
The original music video, which features Rivera and the Colombian star, currently has over 48 million views. The remix was released with a lyric video representing the colors of the Mexican flag: green, white, and red.
