Shakira & Maluma Hit The Beach In Their Sexy “Clandestino” Video
Shakira and Maluma comprise one of pop’s perfect pairs. The duo have now collaborated on a trio of tracks since releasing “Chantaje” in 2016. Their first outing was a smash hit. After the accompanying video went massively viral (it has been viewed more than 2.1 billion times), it topped Billboard’s US Latin chart and just missed out on the top 50 on the Hot 100. They followed it up with “Trap,” and the video was another hit. This one was only viewed 110 million times. However, it is still impressive considering they spent most of it hiding behind clouds of smoke. Last month they dropped “Clandestino,” their latest collaboration. And it is on track to be one of their most successful. The audio file has amassed more than 140 million views on YouTube, while Spotify contributes another 44 million streams. Based on those numbers alone, it has already cracked the Top 20 on the US Latin chart.
Today (July 27), the pair released the official video, which is sure to take them even higher. In it, the Colombian superstars hit the beach for a sensual romp. The end result is low on a technical plot but still delivers plenty of gorgeous moments. Both of them serve smoldering looks while playing in the waves. In another scene, Shakira dances inside a small cage while Maluma looks on. This in particular harkens back to her “She Wolf” video and makes for some very compelling viewing. If the visual goes as viral as their first, “Clandestino” will prove to be an unstoppable hit. It seems safe to expect them to top the Latin charts and also to make another appearance on the Hot 100 at this rate. Check out their newest blockbuster up top and revisit “Chantaje” below!
