Maluma and The Weeknd Team Up on ‘Hawái (Remix)’
The Weeknd is not slowing down.
Fresh off his collaborations with Ariana Grande and Oneohtrix Point Never, the Canadian crooner teams up with Latin superstar Maluma on the remix to his single “Hawái.” Abel aka El Fin De Semana shows off his suave Spanish flow over the wavy rhythm.
“Puede que no te haga falta na’, aparentemente na’ / Hawái de vacaciones, mis felicitaciones,” he sings. “Muy lindo en Instagram lo que posteas / Pa’ que yo vea cómo te va, pa’ que yo vea.”
Speaking with Apple Music, Maluma praised his collaborator. “Bro, he killed it, because he’s a real artist. He’s a real artist, man, what he did in this song. For him, it was like he was doing reggaeton for his whole life. And I knew that his voice in the song could work amazing. And that’s what happened,” he said. “I couldn’t believe how good it was mixing his vocals with my vocals. And man, yeah, I’m blessed. I’m very happy. This is a huge moment for the Latin culture though.”
The Weeknd, who is nominated for eight American Music Awards, is now readying a new project for release once quarantine is over.
