Ahead of his first concert in Brazil, Peso Pluma recruited Brazillian singer Anitta for a sultry new reggaeton single called “Bellakeo.”
On Thursday, Peso released the song’s dark and sensual official music video featuring Anitta and a crew of dancers dressed in all black performing a ritual on a man. In “Bellakeo,” which loosely translates to being sexually aroused or flirtatious, Peso and Anitta sing about their yearning for seduction.
Referencing Puerto Rican reggaeton duo Plan B, Peso sings, “Plan B on the radio, she sings it with her friends / Shots of Clase Azul and we’re going directly to the club because all she wants all night is bellaqueo.”
Filmed in Madrid, the official music video was directed by Willy Rodríguez, who has also produced music videos for such stars as Luis Fonsi, Alejandro Sanz and Romeo Santos.
This marks the first collaboration between the pair although Peso is no stranger to reggaeton. His and Yng Lvcas’ “La Bebe,” was one of the biggest reggaeton songs of the year, despite both artists being known for their prowess in música Mexicana — specifically the subgenre known as trap corridos.
The single also comes on the heels of Anitta’s “Funk Generation: A Favela Love Story” three-track EP which included the catchy “Funk Rave.” Meanwhile, Peso was recently named Variety‘s breakthrough artist of the year at its annual Hitmakers brunch in recognition of his many chart-topping hits, including his album “Genésis.” The latter also earned Peso his first-ever Grammy nomination for best música mexicana album.
