The two Colombian superstars again collaborate on their single “Clandestino.” Written and produced by both along with the Latin Grammy winner Édgar Barrera, the song takes off with reggae rhythms and is accentuated with a reggaeton vibe.
Weeks after releasing it on all digital music platforms, Shakira wanted to do something more innovative to connect with her millions of fans in a more personalized way through social media.
As announced on her Instagram account, for the first time the two artists recorded the video in vertical format. It can be found exclusively on the Spotify playlist ¡Viva Latino!
