If there’s one song we’re predicting we’ll be hearing all summer, it’s Sebastian Yatra’s latest feel-good single, “Vagabundo,” which features fellow Colombian singers Manuel Turizo and Beale. The upbeat and vibey merengue track captures the feeling of publicly pretending to move on after running into an ex. The video is accompanied by a music video directed by Joaquín Cambre and features cameos by actress Daniela Botero, artist Valeria Sandoval and TikToker El Mindo.
The music video depicts a group of friends enjoying themselves at a boat party on a hot summer day on the waters of Miami. The boys are also having fun flirting with other women, but their fun ends unexpectedly when they are faced with the tension that still exists between them.
‘Vagabundo’ is Yatra’s second release this year. It follows their single “Una Noche Sin Penser”, which dropped in February. Both these singles tease the upcoming album of Yatra.
“I have more time to make [this album], and it’s not about the result,” Journey told Rollingstone. “It’s about the feelings behind each song. Songs gave me therapy.”
Journey released its latest LP, “Religion,” last January, which won Best Pop Vocal Album at the 2022 Latin Grammys. It also debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Latin Pop Albums chart.
“Vagabundo” not only celebrates today’s Colombian artists (Journey, Turizzo and Beale are all Colombian), but it also comes at a time when Colombian artists are clearly having a moment. Shakira has recently been honored at Billboard’s Mujeres en la Musica, breaking several records over the past year, becoming one of the biggest female artists in Latin music with Karol G, and her collaborative single ” TQG” hitting No. 1. On Latin Airplay and Latin Rhythm Airplay, 2023 is shaping up to be a great year for Colombian Latin music artists—touring included.
