Enrique Iglesias to film his next music video in Cuba

Posted: 15-Aug-16 12:56

Music lovers are excited again with the news that successful Spanish popstar, Enrique Iglesias, will visit Cuba as soon as the final days of August. After collaborating with a handful of talented local artists, Iglesias, who had revealed his desire to return the island several times, is now set out to film his new music video in the Caribbean island.

Enrique Iglesias to film his next music video in Cuba

The flow of top-notch musicians visiting Cuba has done nothing but increase in the past few years. Recent events like the legendary Rolling Stones concert in Havana’s Ciudad Deportiva sport complex as well as low-key visits from the likes of Rihanna and Bon Jovi are proof that the island’s popularity is on the rise. Although a big part of the reason for this growing interest is the on-going normalization process between US and Cuban governments, the recent success of local musicians on an international scale has also caught artists’ eye.

Today, the attention just keeps on coming with news of Enrique Iglesias travelling to the island on the last days of August to shoot his latest music video. Cibercuba digital magazine informs that the 41-year-old heartthrob should land in the capital in a matter of weeks, according to reliable sources (who prefer to remain anonymous) that take part in protocol and management for VIP guests. At the moment, everything depends on all necessary permits and visas being approved for the shooting of the video clip, a process that is now in motion.

Renowned in Cuba for his innovative and top-quality clips, Alejandro Perez will most likely be the director of Iglesias’ video. Perez has been working with the Spanish popstar in all his latest songs including “Let me be your lover” featuring Pitbull, “Noche y de Dia” with Yandel and Juan Magan and of course, his biggest hit in the last decade “Bailando”.

Enrique Iglesias was responsible for launching talented Cuban artists into worldwide fame, specifically reggaeton duo Gente de Zona, after collaborating on this hit song. “Bailando” stirred up a storm and took the world by surprise with its flavoursome fusion of Spanish guitar and African drums, making up a catchy dance-along tune that embodies the essence of Cuban music. The record won numerous awards including 3 Latin Grammys in the categories of Best Urban Song, Best Urban Fusion Song and Song of the Year as well as 7 Billboards during 2014-2015.

Iglesias, an experienced pop singer and songwriter, is one of the most successful artists around the globe with over 100 million CDs sold. Nonetheless, his low-key and humble attitude will probably make him want to go by unnoticed during his stay in Cuba, so fans may be surprised to find him at walking distance as he strolls through the streets.

There will still be much excitement and speculation left in Cuba after Enrique Iglesias’ video shoot, with rumours of possible concerts from renowned starts like Daddy Yankee, Marc Anthony and pop-rock band Maroon 5 who have also presumably discussed filming a music video in the Caribbean island.
