Colombian superstar Sebastián Yatra has teamed up with Puerto Rican rapper Myke Towers for his latest single “Pareja del Año” giving us the iconic collab we didn’t know we needed until now.
Yatra is one of the worlds biggest international artists dominating the music industry right now, taking over the charts by refusing to restrict himself to one genre. With over 16 billion streams, 20 million monthly Spotify listeners, over 40 million followers across all his social media platforms, a Grammy nomination , 8 Latin Grammy nominations, 4 Latin American Music Awards, sold-out tours and multi-platinum singles, Yatra is truly a powerful force in music.
Written by Yatra and Towers, along with the iconic duo Andrés Torres and Mauricio Rengifo who also produced the track and, who you might know as the masterminds behind songs like Daddy Yanke’s “Despacito,” Yatra says “”Pareja Del Año” represents where I am right now musically, blending pop and urban genres. Everything Myke Towers does is out of this world so I’m excited to collaborate with him.” The new track is a unique fusion, combining powerful classical strings, an urban rhythmic beat and the duo’s extraordinary vocals to once again show Yatra’s daring defeat at creating such genre-ridden, revolutionary music.
The pair undeniably are the “couple of the year” and an unstoppable force together perfectly put by Towers ““Pareja Del Año” is my first time working with Sebastián. “On our new collaboration, we bring together the duo of the century. This song brings together the best of both worlds. It’s a classic. It’s what music is all about.”
The single was accompanied by a Daniel Duran-directed music video capturing the covetable relationship that’s expressed in the lyrics filmed in the breathtaking Adrienne Arsht Center theater in Miami, FL with a full string orchestra that takes the video to another level. Only a week after its release, the single has amassed over 6 million streams, over 10 million views, #1 on Youtube’s Trending Global Music Videos, top 50 in 17 countries, top 10 in 16 countries, top 5 in 15 countries and #1 in 10 countries.
“Pareja Del Año” is Yatra’s second single release this year and we can’t wait to see what else he has in store for the rest of the year.
