Nelly Furtado and Juanes Bring Joyful Vibes with New Single “Gala y Dalí”

In the early 2000s, a musical collaboration between Colombian superstar Juanes and Canadian artist Nelly Furtado resulted in the chart-topping hit “Fotografía”, a song that became emblematic of an era and continues to resonate with audiences worldwide.

Nelly and Juanes have a history of successful collaborations, having joined forces on multiple occasions to create memorable musical moments. Their partnership extends beyond “Fotografía” to include tracks like “Abre Tu Corazon”, which is the Spanish rendition of Nelly’s hit single “Powerless (Say What You Want)”, showcasing their ability to seamlessly blend their talents across different languages and cultures. Additionally, their collaboration on “Te Busque” both in its “Spanglish” and English version from Nelly’s album “Loose” further solidifies their musical chemistry, with each song highlighting the unique synergy between their voices and styles.

Now, over two decades later, the duo is back with a fresh collaboration titled “Gala y Dalí”, igniting excitement among fans eager to hear their latest musical offering.

Nelly recently teased the release of this new single in mid-March, marking a reunion with Juanes after their previous successful collaborations. Unlike their earlier works, “Gala y Dalí” showcases a more urban and Caribbean-inspired sound, reflecting the evolving musical landscape and the artists’ willingness to embrace new sonic territories.

The title of the song, “Gala y Dalí”, pays homage to the iconic figures of Spanish surrealism, Salvador Dalí, and his wife Gala, hinting at the artistic and imaginative nature of the track. Written by the two artists alongside Alexis Díaz Pimienta, Andrés Torres, and El Dandee, and produced by a talented team including Torres, El Dandee, Sebastian Krys, Juanes, and Felipe Contreras, the song promises a fusion of vibrant rhythms and infectious melodies.

Speaking about the inspiration behind “Gala y Dalí”, Nelly expressed her desire to spread positivity and joy through her music. ‘Gala y Dalí is a song that comes from happiness/joy” she remarked. “The thing I like most about being an artist is being able to share good vibes, positive energy. Gala y Dalí is a very positive song, like a ray of sunshine.”

For Juanes, the collaboration with Nelly holds personal significance, reflecting on their enduring friendship and shared musical journey. “For me, it is a great pleasure to be with Nelly,” he stated in a press release. “It means a lot because we have shared a large part of our lives since ‘Fotografía’ until now.” He expressed gratitude for the opportunity to explore new musical territories with Furtado, emphasizing the song’s uplifting and danceable qualities.

With its infectious energy and positive vibes, the single promises to be a welcome addition to both artists’ discographies, reaffirming their status as musical icons with a knack for capturing the hearts of listeners worldwide.
