The Latin chart-topper – written by Maluma, The Weeknd, Keityn, Edgar Barrera and Bull Nene, and produced by the Rude Boyz – now comes with a new spin that sees Abel Tesfaye sing in both English and Spanish, as well as a new remix video shot by director Jessy Terrero of Cinema Giants
“I have always admired The Weeknd so it feels nothing short of a dream come true to have him collab on ‘HAWÁI’ Remix – he brought another flow to it and sang in both Spanish and English which is impressive,” said Maluma.
The Weeknd’s acclaimed fourth album ‘After Hours‘ has proven a huge success this year, with the track ‘Blinding Lights’ becoming one of 2020’s best-selling singles. Released back in February this year, ‘After Hours’ received a four-star rating from NME, concluding that “his most all-encompassing record to date is also an existential quandary”.
The review added: “The Weeknd’s comeback record splits the difference between his hedonistic and reflective personas.”
The R&B icon also made headlines this weekend for his impressive Halloween costume as The Nutty Professor.
