August was the month in which Camilo made one of his biggest dreams as a musician come true. Making a song with Selena Gómez was something I longed for, and it was on August 26 that the video clip for ‘999 ′ was released, the name that bears the track they created together. The achievements for Camilo, on this song, did not end there, because, in addition to collaborating with the American, he managed to get the British band, Coldplay, to turn their gaze towards him and comment that the song is one of their favorites these days. The Colombian did not hesitate to share the band’s statements, and described the moment with the word ‘happiness’, in capital letters.
“About to go to the concert in Gran Canaria, in the first show with my parents present, for singing with Evaluna after having released a song that I love with Selena Gómez, and seeing that Coldplay, my favorite band, uploaded this. THE HAPPINESS”, wrote the paisa next to a photograph in which it looks like Chris Martin, vocalist of the group, made a list with five of the titles of the music that he has been listening to at this time in which, according to the artist himself wrote, there have been moments of ‘ups and downs’.
“Hi everyone. I hope everyone is doing great in the midst of all the ups and downs. Here are some of the songs that I love right now. We also listen to Jon Hopkins’ new album, and it’s just amazing … it makes us rethink what music is. I can’t find the correct words. See you soon. With love, ‘C’ ”, commented Martin. In the list of songs, in which he put Camilo and Selena Gómez’s in second place, the singer added ‘Pressure Machine’ by The Killers, which he described as his favorite song of all life, by that band; ‘Opal’ from Bicep; Jay-Z’s ‘Imaginary Players’; and ‘Perra’, a song performed by J Balvin and Tokischa.
The Coldplay publication not only moved Camilo, because, in turn, his family and friends reacted. “No no no. Can not be”wrote his brothers-in-law, Mau and Ricky Montaner. “Oh, my God”commented her sister, Manuela. “You deserve all the beauty that this life can give you”, said Colombian YouTuber and influencer, Sofía Castro.
The video clip, up to the moment of this publication, is in position number 15 of YouTube musical trends, exceeds 10.2 million visits, and has obtained more than 700 thousand ‘likes’. The theme is one of the new bets that Selena Gómez has been making to sing in Spanish. In January of this year he premiered ‘Dance with me’, by Raw Alejandro. Around the same time, during the first month of 2021, he released, solo, ‘De una vez’.
The collaboration of Camilo and Selena Gómez generated a stir from its first announcements. The posts on Twitter and Instagram were filled with messages of expectation from members of ‘La Tribu’ and the ‘Selenators’, as the followers of both artists call themselves, respectively. In turn, moments from previous months were recalled in which the Colombian, in an interview, confessed that he would love to do a song with the artist behind songs like ‘Kill Em With Kidness’ and ‘Look At Her Now’.
“There is a phrase that tells you ‘be careful with what you dream because it may come true’ and sometimes you think ‘no, maybe that will not come true’, but every time in my life it goes away decreasing the range of what may not become reality (…) then I am afraid to dream because it probably will not happen, but what do I know, to say … I would be very excited to do a song with Selena Gómez, for example . I would like (…) it would seem very cool to me “he said in those days.
The singer, on his Instagram account, published the fragment of the conversation, and assured that he was very nostalgic to see how he had predicted what is happening to him today. “I see this and it gives me a lot of feeling (…) Thank God because he is in control of my dreams and the times of everything (…)”, Camilo wrote that, now, adds emotion to ‘999 ′ with the approval and admiration that his favorite band showed him.
