MALUMA RELEASES HIS NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO ADMV
Toronto, ON – April 24, 2020 – Global Latin music idol, MALUMA, has just released his new single, ADMV, along with its music video. ADMV is a romantic ballad in which Maluma's voice is simply accompanied by an acoustic guitar. The name the song stands for Amor De Mi Vida, which means Love Of My Life, and it was born in the heart of the artist. Listen to ADMV here, and watch the music video here. Maluma recently became the first and only male Latin artist to reach 50 million followers on Instagram.
"This song is very special for me, this is something that comes from the heart, it has made me realize the reason I started my career and it makes me think about what will happen in the future - if we are going to take the time to love one another, hug one another - Today I release it so that we can dedicate it to all the people we love before they are gone," expressed Maluma.
It was written on a January songwriting trip to Jamaica by Maluma, Edgar Barrera and Vicente Barco, and was produced by Barrera and Maluma. The feeling behind ADMV is reminiscent of the singer's previous ballads, Vuelo Hacia El Olvido,(Pretty Boy Dirty Boy) and Marinero (F.A.M.E.).
The lyrics say (in Spanish): "When our memory fails and only the photographs remain, may I forget everything except that you are mine, when the years weigh on us and our legs can no longer walk, our eyes close and our skin doesn't stretch anymore, when the only thing that matters is what we did in life, and even if none of this happens, you are the love of my life."
Nuno Gomez directed the video that originally was slated to shoot in Greece during the Maluma World Tour but due to the global pandemic was moved to Miami, where it was shot in early March.
At only twenty-six years of age, Maluma is widely considered one of the leading voices in Latin music and a bona fide global youth idol. Born Juan Luis Londoño in Medellin, Colombia, he formulated his artistic moniker Maluma from the first two letters of the names of his mother, father and sister.
