“Pedro Capó and Farruko's Calma (Remix) is taking over streaming platforms… Pedro Capó gave a romantic vibe to 2018 with his single Calm’ … Calma (Remix) is a reggae-infused song that organically meshes Capo’s pop flair with Farruko’s urban pulses. The music video is an invitation for disconnection; a subtle request to escape… The sun, the Caribbean Sea, and its beaches are the antidote for bleakness” – Billboard
Toronto, ON – April 22, 2019 – One of the world’s biggest streaming hits is about to get a new voice, as 15-time GRAMMY winner, Alicia Keys, has joined Puerto Rican music stars, Pedro Capó and Farruko, on a new bilingual take on the pair’s chart-topping hit Calma (Remix). The timely result of this organic pairing, Calma (Alicia Remix), is accompanied by a new video of all three artists filmed on the beaches and streets of San Juan under the direction of Edgar Esteves.
Proudly continuing his family’s musical legacy (as the grandson of the legendary Bobby Capó), Pedro Capó is a Latin GRAMMY winning singer-songwriter and musician who is quickly becoming Puerto Rico’s next generation hit maker in the island’s tradition of standout pop vocalists. With last year’s release of his now trademark single, Calma, Capó created a welcoming invitation for people of the world over to escape the everyday chaos and stress of life with an immersion into the more relaxed beach vibe of Puerto Rico. Soon after release, urban music star, Farruko, quickly became one of the song’s biggest fans and personally reached out to Pedro about a collaborative remix. The perfect pairing of relaxed urban beats, with the track’s laidback melody has created a widely embraced global hit that has already reached #1 on both the Billboard Latin, and Global YouTube charts, while receiving Diamond certification in the United States, Mexico and multiple LATAM and European territories on the strength of over 1.4 Billion streams and counting.
“The immensely popular video for Pedro Capó & Farruko’s Calma remix just reached an impressive milestone on YouTube… [crossing] the 900 million view mark. …making major waves in 2019,it recently enjoyed a multi-week stint atop the Global YouTube Music Videos Chart. Given its current pace, Calma should have no trouble blasting past the 1 billion mark within the next few weeks,” writes Headline Planet.
In conjunction with the ongoing success of Calma, look for Pedro Capó to connect personally with his growing fanbase with upcoming concerts in the U.S., Latin America and Europe.
