"I have always admired The Weeknd so it feels nothing short of a dream come true to have him collab on 'Hawái' remix,” Maluma said in a press statement. “He brought another flow to it and sang in both Spanish and English which is impressive.”
Jennifer Lopez and Maluma on Heating Up Hollywood and Opening Doors for Latin ArtistsCo-written by Maluma alongside Keityn, Edgar Barrera, and Bull Nene and produced by Rude Boy, the romantic urban bop, originally released in July, is about a relationship that couldn’t work out and one of the exes “moved on” but it’s all an act.
The original music video, filmed in Miami by Jessy Terrero of Cinema Giants, shows Maluma arguing with his girlfriend, breaking up, a confrontation at her wedding with another man, and a surprising plot twist. The remix video, also at the helm of Terrero, was filmed in Los Angeles and features both artists.
“Hawái” is currently in its ninth week at No. 1 on the Hot Latin Songs chart. The song earned Maluma just his second No. 1 on the list among his 40 chart entries
