R3HAB, Luis Fonsi, and Sean Paul – “Pues” music video
‘Pues’ brings to mind dancing through warm summer nights in tropical locales with beautiful strangers. Part dance melody, part Latin-infused honey, the song has all the makings of being a summertime anthem for fans of both genres. Also, “Pues” is the catchiest of songs, one soaked with abundant sunshine, pulling listeners close and into a never-ending dance. Furthermore, “Pues” is not R3HAB’s first venture into Latin pop; he previously collaborated with TINI & Reik for last year’s sensation, “Bésame” (I Need You).
The sultry music video features TikTok superstar and Instagram sensation, Valeria Sandoval.
“It’s always a pleasure to work with industry legends such as Luis Fonsi and Sean Paul. They are both experts of their craft, and together we came up with a reggaeton-dance record perfect for warm summer nights. I’ve been having a great time making music with artists across the Latin world, like TINI, Reik, Rauw Alejandro, Hungria, and MC Jacare. I’m inspired by the diversity of music cultures within Latin music and have many more to explore. ‘Pues’ is different from everything I’ve released so far, and I’m glad to give it over to our fans now. I hope you love it as much as I do.” – R3HAB explained
R3HAB has been trailblazing his way through dance music for the better part of the last decade. He received massive recognition for his breakthrough hit remix of Afrojack’s, Pitbull’s, and Ne-Yo’s “Give Me Everything” single.
