Feid is (re)mixing things up…

The 27-year-old Colombian singer and songwriter has recruited some big name Latin stars for the recently released remix of his single “Porfa.”

Feid recruited his good friends J BalvinNicky JamMaluma and Sech for the star-studded collaboration.

The song perfectly highlights Feid’s distinguishable R&B-tropical-pop fusions. In February, he dropped the official music video.

With the remix, Feid has coined the song as “possibly his best song all year.” 

“Porfa” is about wanting your ex to come back to you.

“I ask you to please don’t leave, stay with me/ I lost track of all the days I haven’t eaten/ I’m going crazy looking for you and I can’t find you/ I don’t want to touch anyone else to be with you,” the lyrics express. 

On the remix, the collaborators spit their verses asking for their girl to return.

The nearly seven-minute music video shows all six artists performing the song in a neon-drenched room with old televisions as different models are wandering alone as a sign that they’re enjoying their independence.

On the Billboard charts, “Porfa” has secured chart entries on Hot Latin Songs and Latin Airplay charts.
