He was quoted in the newspaper Hoy as saying, “I have many Cuban friends and doing something in Cuba was a pending issue. After making several videos with [director] Alejandro Pérez, so many collaborations that I’ve done with my friend Descemer Bueno, and after the success we had with “Bailando” and my friends from [Cuban group] Gente de Zona, everything pointed to the fact that it was the right moment.”

Referring to the director, the Spanish singer said, “I am sure that if Alejandro managed to capture the magic that we experienced during those two days of filming, the video will infect everyone with that same joy that the audience transmitted to us. The purpose is to have fun and have a nice time, and we definitely had a lot of fun doing it.”
Iglesias had already worked with Alejandro Pérez on the “Bailando” video, which, in 2014, was the second most watched music clip in the world, with 608 million hits on YouTube.
