Prince Royce’s Latest Video Left Me Asking Lots And Lots Of Questions

Prince Royce just released a new video for “Ganas Locas,” the fifth single from his latest album, “Five.” It’s what you’d expect from a Prince Royce track — smooth urban bachata with slinky guitars, a thumping beat, and a sweet melody. It works whether it’s being blasted at a club or being listened to with a pair of headphones. If you’re a Prince Royce fan, chances are you’ve already heard the song hundreds of times, so the music video will do little to change your opinion about it. Here’s a quick recap of what you’ll see in the video:

Royce and a small crew of motorcyclists roll up to a gas station. Let’s call them Los Hijitos de Anarchy.

Just look at that fearsome foursome. 

A trio of women in a bright yellow convertible also rolls up to the gas station.

One of the women is like, “Psssst… is that Prince Royce?”

“I recognize that man-bun anywhere.”

Prince Royce is like, “ROY-EEEEEEEEEESE.” (OK, not really).

There’s definitely some tension between Royce and the woman in the Selena cosplay outfit. Their eyes lock…

… and just when you think they’re going to talk, the woman turns around to ask her friends what they want from the mini mart.

“Takis? Sour gummy worms? OK, cool.”

Royce and his crew can only watch, gobsmacked by the savagery they’ve just witnessed.

Once the woman is inside the store, she is mesmerized by a display full of energy drinks. So much for those Takis and gummy worms.

But wait! Prince Royce enters the store and the two exchange sultry glances. Yes!

Then, Royce… walks right by her? WTH. Say something!

Looks like he blew his chance. Tsk, tsk.

Sidenote: If you look closely as the woman walks out…

…you’ll see during there’s a “No Loitering” sign on the building.

That shit is in Spanish, too, so they covered their bases.

Clearly, Prince Royce is violating the rules, especially in this scene, where he’s just singing with no one else around. That’s definitely LOITERING.

What a rebel.

K, another thing.  There’s also a random food truck just chillin’.

No, it’s not a taco truck. It’s an arepa truck…

And there’s actually a lone mystery customer purchasing some tasty arepas.

I hope she’s ordering an arepa with carne mechada. I’ve heard those are great.

K, so back to the video. The woman gets back to the car, shoots Royce another glance…

And then they just take off.

Then, several seconds later, the video cuts to:

Wait, what? Royce and the woman are grinding it out at the club! We followed them through that whole emotional rollercoaster at the gas station and now they’re just hugged up like they’ve known each other forever (or a few hours, at least). What happened between the gas station and the club? Who made the first move? How did you go from playing hard to get to just getting got?

There’s a whole chunk of this timeline missing and I want to know what happened.

Did Royce and Los Hijitos de Anarchy follow the women to their destination after seeing them at the gas station? That’s pretty creepy but apparently not that creepy because here we are with these two vertically spooning on the dance floor.

Maybe they already knew each other and Royce’s crew was just following them to the gas station before they hit the club. Maybe the Selena cosplay woman’s friend whispered something like, “You should totally do some role playing type of thing where you act like a stranger who doesn’t know Royce.” But how would Royce know to play along? Maybe I’m underestimating his improv skills.

Maybe I’m overthinking a Prince Royce video.

Oh, also, Faruko makes an appearance.

Guillermo Del Toro Is Back With Another One Of His Suspenseful, Visually-Striking Movies

Credit: FoxSearchLight / YouTube

Mexican filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro is back with his first directorial at-bat since 2015’s “Crimson Peak.” This week, an official trailer for his new film, “The Shape Of Water,” was released. The movie looks equal parts science fiction, horror and romance. In the hands of most directors, juggling so many themes would be difficult, but Del Toro is the master of blending genres — I still get goosebumps from “Pan’s Labyrinth.”

The film follows Elisa, a mute woman, who is perpetually late — although her friend Zelda (Octavia Spencer) seems to help her out with that as much as she can. Elisa works in a science lab as a custodian and becomes curious about the experiments performed there, eventually meeting a government prisoner: an amphibious humanoid creature (who is totally not Abe Sapien from Hellboy) that her boss Strickland, (Michael Shannon) is intent on taking apart. You get the feeling Strickland is jealous because, according to his words, the creature was revered as a God in the Amazon. I’m guessing Strickland isn’t revered by anyone.

What appears to be the meat of the film is a love affair that begins to sprout between Elisa and the water creature.

Learning to communicate with the aquatic man through sign language and music, their bond solidifies and her desire to see the gilled one set free becomes her main objective.

The official art for the film leaves little to the imagination between Elisa and the waterman (water person?).

We can’t wait to see Del Toro’s new vision come to life!
