Miami, (EFE News) .- American singer Selena Gómez and singer-songwriter Camilo presented their first collaboration together with the pop song “999”, a single written by the Colombian artist that premieres with a video clip and in which they show “a true connection when interpreting the lyrics”.
“Camilo is a fantastic songwriter and singer who takes pride in exposing his true emotions and feelings, with which we immediately connect. I couldn’t be more excited to collaborate with him, ”the actress also said in a statement when presenting the song.
The song is produced by Edgar Barrera, winner of the Grammy and Latin Grammy awards, along with AC and Camilo himself, who revealed that it was written “thinking about the sonority” of his partner’s voice.
“Working with Selena Gomez is a huge honor. From the beginning, ‘999’ was written thinking about the sonority of his voice and it would not exist if it were not created dreaming of this collaboration ”, declared the artist, born in Medellín, Colombia, and considered one of the greatest exponents of the new pop of his generation.
“I feel too excited for the opportunity that represents, for me and my project, a song as precious as this, with an artist whom I respect and have followed for so long,” said Camilo.
For its part, the video clip, filmed in Los Angeles (California), presents the duo in a “visually natural” environment, which matches the “simple and organic style” of the song, according to the statement.
The audiovisual production is directed by Sophie Muller.
“Selena and Camilo’s performance is timeless and natural, showing a true connection when interpreting the lyrics, accompanied by natural and dreamy settings,” the press release describes.
The premiere of “999” comes after Selena received unanimous praise for her long-awaited return to Latin music.
His first Spanish EP, “Revelación”, was released earlier this year. The 7-track collection includes collaborations with urban “phenomenon” Rauw Alejandro and urban artist Myke Towers, among others.
Selena Gomez, who began her acting career at age 10 with the supporting role of Gianna in the children’s television series “Barney & Friends,” has achieved resounding success as a singer.
“Lose You To Love Me,” the first single from her acclaimed album “Rare,” marked a historic moment for the singer by reaching her first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Acclaimed by The New York Times as an artist who “writes hits even when he’s not trying,” Camilo, for his part, has recorded more than 1.3 billion views on all digital platforms around the world.
Both today show their connection to “999” via Interscope Records, the multi-genre broadcast platform that is part of the Universal Music Group.
