Miami, FL. (DATE). Award-winning Colombian icon Andrés Cepeda has returned to thrill fans once again, this time with his new single “Duele” featuring fellow Colombian singer and songwriter Gusi.
“Duele” is a song that has been in the works for a couple of years, and during that time, Cepeda and Gusi came together on multiple occasions to perfect this bolero Cha with a spiteful theme. Although they’ve been friends for a long time, this is the first time that they worked on a project together.
Composed by Gusi and Benji Cordero, the song talks about a relationship that has come to an end and the memory evokes the pain that arises from the absence of the person’s loved one.
The music video was filmed in a very tropical and traditional environment, in the streets of Ciénaga Magdalena. It was directed by Salomón Simhon, who made sure to take care of every detail and in a sequence shot develops the visual narrative, and was supported by a team of more than 40 people who worked for multiple days in this location under a temperature of more than 35 degrees Celsius.
“When I wrote this song, the first thing I thought was that it is a perfect song to sing with Andrés. That image came to mind. So, I immediately sent him the demo and he gladly accepted,” Gusi shares.
“Duele” forms part of “Décimo Cuarto,” Andrés’s new album, which will arrive in May and from which songs such as “Tu Despertador” with Reik, “Lo que había Olvidado,” and “No sé Querer,” among others, have already been released.
These days, Cepeda is visiting different cities in Colombia with his “La Ruta Púrpura” tour and is preparing for an extensive run at Teatro Mayor Julio Mario Santo Domingo to present a new version of “Cepeda en Tablas.”
It was also just announced that Cepeda was nominated to Colombia’s prestigious Premios Nuestra Tierra 2023, receiving nods in three categories: “Best Concert of the Year” for his “Me Importas Tour,” “Best Pop Song” for his song “Tu Despertador,” and “Best Pop Artist.”
The 2023 Premios Nuestra Tierra Awards will take place for the first time ever at the iconic Teatro Colón in Bogotá on Wednesday, May 18.
