Today, a special collaboration of two superstars is born. Marshmello and Manuel Turizo are pioneering a new concept of global musical collaborations, presenting a cross-genre tune that celebrates electronic music and merengue. Grammy-nominated artist and producer, Marshmello , joins forces with young Latino artist, composer and phenomenon Manuel Turizo on “El Merengue” , which pays homage to the electronic merengue of the 2000s, and opens with a video clip starring by both artists.
The two artists unveiled the collaboration in the heart of New York’s bustling Times Square last Friday (February 24) when one of music’s most recognizable “heads,” the helmeted Marshmello, appeared on the New York subway and in the busy streets of the city. As the clock struck 5 pm ET, the iconic helmet was lifted to reveal Manuel Turizo. Fans mobbed the Colombian heartthrob causing chaos and excitement as the duo, remotely on IG Live and in person, announced the new single featured on seven surrounding Billboards.
The audiovisual piece of “El Merengue” , directed by Chadrick Preuss and Sandeep Vadlamudi, shows Turizo remembering his ex-girlfriend just before seeing her in the crowd at a nightclub. With the confidence he gained thanks to her shots, Turizo acts on impulse by approaching her and her ex-boyfriends dance in what seems to be a mist of passion, to the smooth rhythm of electronic merengue, or was it all? just a dream? At the end of the night, Turizo is consumed by emotion but his friend Marshmello comforts him and they both leave the premises.
The collaboration also follows Marshmello’s sensational release “Numb” featuring Khalid, which peaked at number three on Billboard’s US Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart. “El Merengue” explores for the first time the genre of Electronic Merengue.
