This Spanglish Canción With Juanes and Kali Uchis Will Get You Off Your Butt
What do you get when you mix two hot Colombians? This is not a joke, by the way. You get Juanes and Kali Uchis. They just released “El Ratico,” a hypnotic dance song you won’t get enough of.
We knew these Colombian cuties were up to something back when Kali posted these pictures of them chillin’ at the studio eight months ago.
studio last night con el legend @Juanes ?? i'm still in shock that this happened man, apparently one of his friends sent him the Ridin Round video & now here we are? extremely blessed & grateful to have been working this year with some of the most musically influential people to my upbringing, it's crazy to me. thank you

Obviously, they were working on music, but we had no idea it’d be this intense:
The single is on Juanes’ forthcoming visual album, “Mis Planes Son Amarte,” his seventh album since his 2000 solo debut. Aside from his collaboration with Kali, Juanes also worked on a single with Colombian singer-songwriter Fonseca.
Juanes has already released videos for “Hermosa Ingrata,” “Fuego” and “Angel.”
Here’s the official trailer for the album.
As you can see by the trailer, there’s a consistent narrative weaved throughout the album. According to Billboard, the album “centers on the story of a Colombian astronaut searching for the woman of his dreams.” Billboard also reported there’s an HBO feature film associated with the album. What?!
Clearly, this new video with Kali is a piece to the puzzle. Is she helping him find the woman of his dreams? Is Kali Uchis the woman of his dreams?
What we’d pay to be a fly in the middle of that table.
Last year, Juanes wrote on Instagram about this single with Kali: “Parcera, it was a pleasure making music with you. We’re going full force to Mars. Very inspired with your talent and attitude.”
On Friday, Kali once again expressed her gratitude to Juanes via Facebook: “My video and song just dropped with Juanes thank you for letting me be apart of your amazing album// movie.”
We’ve been praising Kali for a hot minute because we’re in love with her soulful/R&B vibes.
Can’t wait to hear more from you, Kali!
But back to the video, did you notice the weird twist at the end?
Guess this video is “To Be Continued…”
