Electronic Dance Music star Steve Aoki has partnered with Latin Urban pop star Maluma for a new song and video.
The pair debuted the video for Aoki’s new song ‘Maldad‘ Friday. The song is featured on Aoki’s forthcoming album Neon Future IV: The Color of Noise. The video, directed by Roxana Baldovin, puts Maluma in a harem/club type setting and Aoki against a mirrored backdrop while a bevy of scantily-clad women dance to the music. The song’s musical arrangement is anchored by a combined flute line and infectious Latin beat.
According to information in a news release distributed about the new single, the song’s lyrical content focuses on “the story of a good girl who feels like cutting loose,” which might account for the scantily-clad women featured in the video.
Aoki talked about the song’s creation in a recent interview.
“maluma and I have been working on this for a while now, and I’m excited that we are finally able to bring our two worlds together with Maldad,” he said. “Latin music continues to impact globally, and I’m proud to be championing this movement on stage, radio and for my fans everywhere.”
Maluma shared Aoki’s enthusiasm for having the song available to the public.
“Being part of this track with Steve is creatively fulfilling as he is an EDM pioneer,” Maluma said. “I am a fan of his achievements and everything he’s done to pave the way for merging music and culture. I am so excited for everyone to see and hear this collaboration, and continuing to work toward global fusion.”
