The Spanish rapper C. Tangana and the Argentine-Spanish singer Nathy Peluso played the part of “Ateo”, which makes an oda to the bachata, a genre that I study very present in the mind of C. Tangana during the making of his recent album ” El Madrileño”, to decontextualize traditional elements and cross them with an urban sound and an experimental setting.
C. Tangana felt that “Nathy was the perfect companion for eso”, and that “they share an origin of rap and are sonically exploring other styles of traditional music”.
“When Pucho sent me the song for the first time,” recalls Nathy Peluso, “I immediately felt it was a classic. And when we worked together in the studio, I re-confirmed that same sensation. It’s a project with a wonderful universe, and a fantastic video. that is really a work of art, and a very interesting theme that appeals to all of us. ¡Que viva el romanticismo!”
The official video of “Ateo” is also the debut as director of C. Tangana, a vision shared with the visual collaborators of Little Spain. “I’ve always been fascinated by cinematographic direction and I’m a big movie fan”, says C. Tangana. “I have always worked on the creativity of my videos, but this is the first time I direct them. More than the aesthetics, the look portrays how I feel, showing the song and the themes of the lyrics”.
C. Tangana explored the bachata for the first time in “Tú Me Dejaste de Querer”, a theme that counts with 139 million views on YouTube, incorporating elements of the genre and inspired by his trip to the Dominican Republic, which he brought him to know about leyendas like Luis Segura, con quien también hopes to be able to collaborate sometime.
Both artists were also recognized last week with nominations in the main categories of the 22nd annual Latin GRAMMY® award, C. Tangana with 5 nominations and Nathy Peluso with 4 nominations.
