BIBI has joined forces with multi-platinum singer/songwriter, Becky G, on the release of their new single and music video for “Amigos,” out today.
The outcome is a captivating unification of BIBI and Becky G’s irresistible vocals, resulting in an alluring and playfully provocative anthem. Not only does the track boast an infectious, rhythmic beat with a magnetic pulse, but also marks a culturally significant collaboration between a K-Pop and Latin artist, a rare yet powerful combination.
Directed by duo Javier Castan and Eoghan O'Driscoll of Mutant (Zara Larson, David Guetta, Madison Beer), the tantalizing video finds BIBI and Becky G in pursuit of a secret rendezvous, taking audiences with them as they embark on their exciting endeavour. The adventurous and enthralling video shows us what BIBI and Becky G mean when they say: “But if my boyfriend calls / We are friends, nothing more”.
On her collaboration with Becky G, BIBI said, “When I first heard Becky G’s voice in ‘Amigos,’ I fell in love because it was so perfect. I pondered countless times on how to make this song shine even more and chose a slightly darker approach. I made many changes, unlike my usual style. I tried to create a blend of low and refreshing tones. Although the lyrics may be somewhat suggestive and promiscuous, I am not that kind of person. As a hopeless romantic, I have a knack for falling head over heels for that one special person and my loyalty knows no bounds.”
Becky G continued, “Everyone knows how much I value collaboration and this song with BIBI presented a great opportunity for us to adapt our styles to work together. A blend of cultures, the track further proves music’s ability to transcend borders. I’m so excited for our fans to experience the crossroads of our creativity that creates an infectious beat that so many will enjoy.”
