A mirror nude on Instagram served as the only indication that something was coming from Maluma on Thursday. The Colombian superstar surprised fans with an 8-track album titled The Love & Sex Tape at midnight, and along with the sensual tracks, released a video for “Nos Comemos Vivos” with Chencho Corleone.
The video follows the two artists attempting some retrofuturistic virtual reality device as they watch videos of a gorgeous woman on the side of a building. The two stars are also seen singing together in front of an LED-lit-up imaginary city.
“El día que te conocí, ese día te lo metí/Hicimos un pacto sin ruptura que no tendrá fin,” sings Maluma. (In English: “The day I met you was when I put it in you/We made a truce we won’t break nor will let end.”)
The album cover features an illustration of the artist wearing a full black suit with a pink thong in his mouth and his dog Budda sitting near him with bright red eyes. The album’s title is symbolized by a broken heart for “Love” and three X’s for “Sex.”
“More than a decade into my career, I was missing that essence that inspired me from the beginning and I felt a need to connect with the streets as well as fans who love the urban rhythm that has defined me from the start; that’s why I decided to make this album,” he said in a statement. “The Love & Sex Tape represents my duality and a 2022 version of my original sound.”
