Enrique Iglesias has plenty of reasons to celebrate. After welcoming twins with Anna Kournikova on Dec. 16, the singer released a hot new video, “El Baño,” featuring Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny on Jan. 12 — and it’s driving fans wild. The teaser of the video alone, which he posted the day before, was enough to fire up his followers. “Hooked,” one wrote. Another raved: “I love it, I just listen to it all the time!”
In the racy video, the Spanish singer becomes enthralled with a mysterious dark-eyed brunette (played by Pollyanna Uruena) he meets at a bar. The scene between the two young paramours plays out, like ground hog day, over and over again, under the sly, knowing eyes of the bartender (actor Eric Roberts.) Filled with erotic wordplay, the singer invites the seductive stranger to exchange an endless kiss in the nearby bathroom, which she eventually accepts. In each successive meeting, the two get closer and closer, leading to a full blown steamy liaison.
Bad Bunny urges beauty: “Have fun coz life is going fast…have fun life is only one.” Although some fans took umbrage with some of the tune’s cruder lines, such as: “Every time I see you/You make me so hard/So hard to believe/That you will be mine,” as translated by Billboard, the video has already garnered more than 16.6 million views on YouTube.
The Puerto Rican rapper’s musical collaboration with Bad Bunny is his latest. Last year, he teamed up with Becky G on “Mayores” and J.Balvin on “Si Tu Novio Te Deja Sola.”
