Sebastían Yatra's New Single "Vagabundo" Is Bound to Become a Summertime Hit
If there's a song we're predicting to be hearing all summer, it's Sebastían Yatra's latest feel-good single, "Vagabundo," which features fellow Colombian singers Manuel Turizo and Beéle. The upbeat and vibey merengue track reflects on the feeling of pretending to have moved on after publicly running into an ex. The song is accompanied by a music video directed by Joaquín Cambre that features cameos from actress Daniela Botero, performer Valeria Sandoval, and TikToker El Mindo.
The music video portrays a group of friends enjoying themselves at a boat party on a warm summer day over Miami waters. The guys are having a blast even flirting with other women, but their fun unexpectedly comes to an end after the exes are confronted with the tension that still exists between them.
"Vagabundo" is Yatra's second release this year. It follows his single "Una Noche Sin Pensar," which dropped in February. The two singles tease Yatra's upcoming album.
"I've had more time to make [this album], and it hasn't been about the result," Yatra told Rolling Stone. "It's more about the emotions behind each song. The songs gave me therapy"
Yatra released his latest LP, "Dharma," last January, and it won best pop vocal album at the 2022 Latin Grammys. It also debuted at No. 2 on Billboard's Latin pop albums chart.
"Vagabundo" not only celebrates today's Colombian artists (Yatra, Turizo, and Beéle are all Colombian), but it also comes when Colombian artists are clearly having a moment. From Shakira recently being honored at Billboard's Mujeres en la Música for putting out singles in the past year that have broken numerous records, to Karol G becoming one of the biggest women artists in Latin music, and their collaborative single "TQG" hitting No. 1 on Latin Airplay and Latin Rhythm Airplay, 2023 is shaping up to be a great year for Colombian Latin music artists — Yatra included.
