Set to a soft reggaeton beat, the lyrics find Ozuna reflecting on a failed relationship that was a waste of time.

“I dedicated time, time that I had already lost. Love like yours, I don’t understand. Now I’m alone and that’s an issue,” he confesses.

“Tiempo” was released alongside a trippy and visually striking music video directed by Fernando Lugo, which takes Ozu walking through fields of snow to an underwater adventure.

J Balvin to Launch “Neón Experience” in September, Alongside Big Name Guest Stars

Things are looking brighter for J Balvin, and he’s sharing that outlook with some big names…

The 35-year-old Colombian reggaeton singer is heading to Las Vegas in September for a weekend of experiences and performances he’s dubbed his “Neón Experience.” And, he’s invited Karol G, Jhay Cortez, Rauw Alejandro, Jowell & Randy and producers Tainy and Sky Rompiendo.

Also included in his roster of events will be DJ Alex Sensation, Cornetto, DJ Pope, Agudelo888 and Matt Paris and La Gabi, the first two artists Balvin signed to his own label.

The Neón Experience will take place in Las Vegas during Mexican Independence Weekend, September 16-19, which traditionally has been a huge weekend for Latin music in Vegas, typically featuring big stars playing arena shows.

Balvin’s event, coming in the wake of the pandemic, is something else entirely. Capped at just 3,000 tickets, the three days and nights of events are being curated by Balvin and will include a headlining concert with him.

Different “experiences” will take place in various locales in the new Resorts World Las Vegas, including its entertainment venues Zouk Nightclub and Ayu Dayclub.

The centerpiece of the event is a 90-minute concert headlined by Balvin where, for the first time, he’ll sing the songs from his Colores album live.

“It’s the first event we’ve announced since the pandemic,” says manager Fabio Acosta, noting Balvin’s last concert was more than a year ago. “He will curate the entire weekend, down to the artists and themes. It’s the first time we do an event like this.”

Neón is presented by Pollen Presents, an event production company that develops and produces unique “experiences” in different locations around the world.

They include two upcoming Latin music experiences: Nicky Jam Jamworld, taking place May 13-16 in Miami, and Ozuna Cancún fest, taking place May 20-24 in Cancún.

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.
