“Que Rico Fuera” – co-written by Paloma and Ricky and directed by producers Wissem Larfaoui, Kevyn Mauricio Cruz and Juan Camilo Vargas – is a rhythmic Caribbean bop with urban pop fusions and sultry lyrics. They describe the song as “lit”, “sabrosura“(tasty) or, Martin’s personal favorite,” Freaky Ricky “.
“My thing is to find the magic in different cultures and to break down the barriers,” said the Puerto Rican star. âAt the end of the day, I kind of catch the rhythms that move me, transform them into my sound, and that’s the dynamics that worked.
For Ricky and Paloma, who recorded the song separately but first met while filming the video in California, this is exactly what people needed right now.
âWe’re in a moment where we’ve been through so much and this song moves people,â says Martin.
But their collaboration goes beyond the professional.
âWe have an astrological connection,â he says. “Everything I do with a Scorpio turns out to be very successful and I didn’t know that was his sign until we finished filming the video.”
Paloma, who says she just loves Capricorns, immediately knew there was a “magical chemistry” between the two.
âShe’s young and knows what she wants and doesn’t want and I love that she is so connected. You can see it by his music and his performance in this song, âMartin notes.
“Que Rico Fuera” will be on Martin’s next album To play, scheduled for later this year.
