Camila Cabello & Camilo Release Music Video for Their Bachata Track “Ambulancia”

Camila Cabello is calling an ambulance…

The 25-year-old Cuban & Mexican singer/songwriter has teamed up with Camilo to release the official music video for their first collaborative effort “Ambulancia.”

Camilo & Camila CabelloDirected by Camilo’s wife and singer/actress Evaluna Montaner, the VHS-inspired clip finds Camilo and Cabello riding on top of an ambulance, where they are sitting on a mattress filled with sunflowers.

In the background, a green screen shows trippy visuals such as the starry galaxy, a busy highway and crashing ocean waves, to name a few.

The clip comes more than four months after the single dropped September 6, part of Camilo’s De Adentro Pa Afuera album, which debuted at No. 8 on the Latin Pop Albums chart dated September 17.

“I love the song so much,” Cabello told Camilo during an Instagram Live chat Tuesday afternoon. “I’ve always wanted to do a song with you. Being on set with you, Evaluna, and Indi (the couple’s baby), and then performing it live together in Los Angeles, for me, was a dream come true.”

The Colombian artist agreed: “I wanted to thank you for opening the door of your heart to do music together and also your fans for allowing me to be a part of their playlist.”

“Ambulancia” is a flirty slow-tempo bachata track that narrates the story of a connection that cannot be explained, the one that is pure magic and magnetic.

Moreover, it perfectly combines Camilo’s melodic vocals with Camila’s raspy voice. “I had turned off my heart, but when he saw you alone, he decided to turn back on,” she sings in a verse.

Camilo Teams Up with Grupo Firme for Banda Heartbreak Song “Alaska”

The Colombian singer, musician and songwriter has joined voices with Grupo Firme to release the new banda anthem “Alaska.”

CamiloPowered by traditional banda instruments like the tuba and accordion, the heartbreak song is Camilo and the Mexican group’s first joint effort.

The track — which really thrives on a play on words à la Camilo — arrived alongside a music video directed by singer-songwriter Evaluna (also Camilo’s wife).

In it, Evaluna becomes the designated driver to Camilo and the Firme crew as they sing their sorrows away while taking more than a few tequila shots.

Ahead of the track’s release, Camilo expressed gratitude and admiration for the chart-topping band.

“We met in a hotel hallway and, since then, told each other we wanted to make music together,” Camilo shared in an Instagram post. “I love beautiful and transparent people like them.” Firme’s frontman Eduin Caz commented, “This song will be a smash hit because it was totally organic and real. We love you and your family.”

“Alaska” — produced and penned by Camilo and Edgar Barrera — marks the sixth single off his highly anticipated third album, De Adentro Pa Afuera, slated for release in September.

This is not the first time Camilo has dabbled with regional Mexican music.

In 2021, he teamed up with norteño duo Los Dos Carnales for “Tuyo Y Mío,” which is part of his Latin Grammy-winning album Mis Manos.

About his love for the genre, Camilo told Billboard at the time, “Regional Mexican music is also very ours as Colombians. I remember my parents would have family gatherings and they’d drink aguardiente with green mango while listening to corridos, rancheras and boleros. So, that sonority has been with me since I was little — it’s not foreign, and it’s a part of my sound.”

Both Camilo and Grupo Firme are confirmed for Billboard’s 2022 Latin Music Week, set to take place September 26-30 in Miami at the Faena Forum.
