Penned by Balvin and Keityn, the hip-hop song is an autobiographical piece intertwined with recordings from real-life commentaries, including Daddy Yankee.

Balvin opens up about his upbringing, the struggles in his career, and the legacy he wants to leave behind.

He recalls the times people didn’t believe in him because he was a Colombian doing reggaetón music and how difficult it was for him to export his talent in times where there was no social media or press.

He sheds light on his mental health issues and how his mother and her prayers have kept him grounded. “If I die, don’t remember the hitmaker, remember the parcero who left a legacy,” he chants in the track.

A music video directed by José Emilio Sagaró shows a performance by Balvin laced with rare footage of his beginnings in music and some of his most successful career moments.

“May 7 is the day a warrior and a dreamer was born,” he states.

The song, produced by Lexus and Keityn, is the third single from Balvin’s upcoming new album.

The track pairs Balvin’s Spanish lyrics with Khalid’s English verses, with Khalid crooning, “Been a while since I’ve seen your face/ When you know it gets lonely in L..A/ Thinking of you every day/ Say the word I’m on a one-way.”

The monochrome music video, set in a foggy forest, brings the singers together for the soulful song.

Ahead of the video’s premiere, Balvin and Khalid appeared on YouTube series Released to discuss their creative process and how the two originally met via Twitter.

In February, Balvin shared his single “Ma’ G.” Then, in March, Balvin released a new song called “Tu Veneno.”

On Wednesday, Maluma and The Weeknd surprised fans by announcing the collaboration, sharing a photo together across social media.

Less than 24 hours later, the bilingual “Hawái” remix and accompanying video officially dropped via Sony Music Latin/RCA Records.

Marking their first-ever collaboration, The Weeknd kicks off the remix by singing in English. “So now he’s your heaven? You’re lying to yourself and him to make me jealous / You put on such an act when you’re sleeping together / All this cause I said I don’t want marriage,” he croons before flaunting the infectious chorus in Spanish. This also marks the first time the Canadian singer has sung in Spanish.

“I have always admired The Weeknd so it feels nothing short of a dream come true to have him collab on ‘Hawái’ remix,” Maluma said in a press statement. “He brought another flow to it and sang in both Spanish and English which is impressive.”

Co-written by Maluma alongside Keityn, Edgar Barrera, and Bull Nene and produced by Rude Boy, the romantic urban bop, originally released in July, is about a relationship that couldn’t work out and one of the exes “moved on” but it’s all an act.

The original music video, filmed in Miami by Jessy Terrero of Cinema Giants, shows Maluma arguing with his girlfriend, breaking up, a confrontation at her wedding with another man, and a surprising plot twist. The remix video, also at the helm of Terrero, was filmed in Los Angeles and features both artists.

“Hawái” is currently in its ninth week at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart. The song earned Maluma just his second No. 1 on the list among his 40 chart entries.

The song finds Maluma heartbroken and plotting his next move to get his lady back — even if that means crashing her wedding.

Produced by Rude Boyz, the melodious pop song was penned by Maluma, KeitynEdgar Barrera and Bulle Nene with lyrics set in present day that tell the story of a toxic relationship and the aftermath of a breakup in the Instagram era. 

“Stop lying to yourself, the photo you put up with him saying he was your everything, I know you only posted it to make me jealous,” Maluma sings.

Maluma wrote the storyline for music video, which was shot in Miami. The action-packed video, directed by Jessy Terrero of Cinema Giants, opens with a scene of Maluma arguing with his girlfriend. After the huge blow up, they go their separate ways. On her wedding day to another man, he crashes the ceremony hoping she’ll take him back. And, the video ends with a plot twist.

“Hawái” follows Maluma’s chart-topping “ADMV” single which scored him his 16th No. 1 on Billboard’Latin Airplay chart. “ADMV” was also penned by Maluma and Barrera along with Vicente Barcoand Miky La Sensa.

The tracks drop ahead of Maluma’s forthcoming album, slated to be released later this year, according to Maluma.

In an interview with Apple Music, he said, “I didn’t know that I was about to release an album this year because all of these things are happening.”

Adding, “my first album [this year] is about to come. I had this chance to know myself again in this crazy sh– that is going on. So, I decided to make the music that I just wanted to do. “Hawái” for sure is the first single of my new album.”
