Channing Tatum And Diego Luna Discover They Have A Few Things In Common While On ‘The Late Late Show’

“Sadly, if I put together all the people who have watched my films, it doesn’t hit the number that this music video got after two weeks on YouTube.”

As recent guests on James Corden’s “The Late Late Show,” Diego Luna, Channing Tatum and Adam Scott discovered the three of them have something in common: they’ve all “starred” in a music video. Back in the early 2000s, Tatum appeared in Ricky Martin’s “She Bangs” music video. However, Tatum recalled he was hardly noticeable since he was one of three men surrounded by a large crowd of about 200 women. After looking at a picture of Tatum in Ricky Martin’s “She Bangs,” Corden then pulled out a picture of Luna in Katy Perry’s video for “The One That Got Away.” With over 600 million views, Luna poked fun at how this Katy Perry music video probably has more views than all of his films combined. “When I die they’re going to say, ‘Oh the guy from the Katy Perry video just died,'” joked Luna. Lastly, Corden reminded Scott of his appearance in a throwback Tia Carrere music video. Scott admitted he thought he was being cast for a major role, but it turned out he was only being cast as an extra in the music video.

Luna and Tatum also learned about another talent they have in common…

Corden reminded Luna of his dance moves as Javier Suarez in 2004’s “Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights.” After being cast as one of the lead dancers for the movie, Luna noted how traumatized the dance film left him. “I hear salsa and I start shaking,” joked Luna. Tatum also knows what it’s like to be in a dance film — after his role in the movie “Step Up,” he says he couldn’t step into a nightclub without people wanting to battle him.

On a more serious note, the segment closed with Luna speaking about the aftermath of the Mexico City earthquake. In response, Tatum showed his support.

In an effort to help everyone who has been affected by the earthquake in Mexico City, Luna shared a crowdfunding campaign that he put together with his good friend Gael Garcia Bernal. To further raise awareness, Tatum posted a video about the campaign to his own social media accounts, encouraging his fans to donate anything they possibly can.

People Are Living For The Weeknd’s Spanish Skills On Maluma’s ‘Hawái’ But Apparently Not His Dance Moves

While many of us were eagerly awaiting the results of a wildly heated presidential election, many more were waiting to find out what the collab between Maluma and The Weeknd was all about.

Thankfully, fans didn’t have to wait long.

Over the weekend, Maluma and The Weeknd surprised fans with their incredible remix of Maluma’s “Hawái” off his album Papi Juancho. The duo sing together in Spanglish and the music video has people asking all kinds of questions.

The Weeknd is getting tons of love for singing in ‘Spanglish’ on a remix of Maluma’s “Hawái.”

After lighting up social media with an Instagram post that hinted at a possible collaboration, Maluma and The Weeknd launched a remix that had fans of both artists waiting in anticipation.

Turns out the long awaited project was a remix of Maluma’s song “Hawái” from his Papi Juancho album, which he surprise released back in August. The Weeknd now brings his R&B voice to the first verse of the track, singing in a dimly lit club in the music video. It all seems like an extension of his After Hours universe, until he begins singing in Spanish.

During the song, you can hear the Canadian artist sing a few lines in Spanish after opening the remix singing in English.

In the first two hours since the remix was posted on YouTube, the collaboration reached 750,000 views.

The “Hawái” remix is The Weeknd’s second collaboration in less than a week, after he teamed up with Ariana Grande to duet “off the table” on her latest album, positions.

Maluma seems as excited about the remix as his fans are.

In a press release for the remix, Maluma said, “I have always admired The Weeknd so it feels nothing short of a dream come true to have him collab on ‘Hawái’. He brought another flow to it and sang in both Spanish and English which is impressive.”

“Bro, he killed it, because he’s a real artist,” Maluma told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe. “He’s a real artist, man, what he did in this song. For him, it was like he was doing reggaeton for his whole life. And I knew that his voice in the song could work amazing. And that’s what happened.”

Maluma continued, “At the beginning, when I listened to the first verse when he just started the song… I was like, ‘Bro, this sounds like The Weeknd’s song.’ I couldn’t believe how good it was mixing his vocals with my vocals. And man, yeah, I’m blessed. I’m very happy. This is a huge moment for the Latin culture though.”

But apparently fans are questioning the rapper’s dancing abilities.

Although people are not entirely happy with the song. Many on Twitter pointed out that the Spanish is fine, but the dancing is unexpectedly dorky, especially compared to the Papi Juancho himself, still oozing sex appeal all over the place.

Some were just upset by the whole thing…

Another Twitter user posted a message in which she wrote “Me listening to the Hawaii remix with The Weekend “accompanied by a photo of a visibly uncomfortable child.

What do you think of the remix? How are The Weeknd’s dance moves?
