The video features a distraught man completely taken over by a great sense of loss and regret; and shows Maluma as we have never seen him before.

The 15-track album was produced by Rude Boyz, Edgar Barrera, Timbaland and Scott Storch, among others; and features collaborations with Timbaland, Marc Anthony, Prince Royce, SID and Nego Do Borel. All four of its previously-released singles have already become smash hits.
The Maluma remix of Wolfine's Bella, which includes a video by Mike Ho as well, has also been released today and it promises to be another successful collaboration for the artist.
