Colombian superstar Maluma is paying homage to women with his new single ‘La Reina’ (‘The Queen’ in English).
The empowering track features an inspiring message about the beauty and worth that all women carry naturally, no matter their age, sexuality, culture or physical condition in appreciation of their true value, their essence and the magnificence of being a woman by honouring and crowning them in every way possible.
“I wrote this beautiful song in a music camp, and it came to me as a gift from above, because I have always wanted to make a tribute to women. For me, the most important thing about this song is that the main characters are all these spectacular women and all the women around the world who are going to identify with it,” Maluma expressed at the shooting of the video for ‘La Reina’.
The track was written by Maluma, Kevin Cruz Moreno, Edgar Barrera, Lenin Yorney Palacios and Luis Miguel Gómez Castaño. The music video was filmed in Medellin, Colombia; directed by Juan Luis Londoño Arias (Maluma), Juan Felipe Zuleta and Cesar “Tes” Pimienta; and produced by his very own Royalty Films.
The video highlights the beauty of 17 Colombian women. Each one reflects a different personality and essence, and her own story: Yaneth Rodríguez Jiménez, Carmen Emilia Pulgarin, Angie Marquinez Montaño, Ana María Ramírez, Maritza Siagama Certiga, Diana Rodríguez Álvarez, Valentina López Rodríguez, Susana García Restrepo, Alice Barrada Castro, Alejandra Blanco Sánchez, Lina Loaiza Bran, Erika Medina Mesa, Silvia Rosa Julio, Martha Álvarez Ossa, Sara Llanos García, Marcela Vargas Osorio and Leidy Ocampo Quintero. Each woman models, sings, dances, and shines to the rhythm of this endearing and empowering song.
‘La Reina’ follows the recent smash ‘La Fórmula‘, a collaboration with fellow Latin star and friend Marc Anthony. The songs are taken from Maluma’s upcoming album, which is due for release later this year.
Maluma recently won two Premio Lo Nuestro awards for “Banda Song Of The Year” and “The Perfect Mix Of The Year” for ‘Cada Quien’ his collab with Grupo Firme, underscoring his musical excellence and versatility.
