In the song and video, Yatra and Vives counsel a young student to serenade the girl he loves. “Robarte un beso is a song we made inspired by love, by the act of falling in love, to tell people that it’s never too late to tell that person that’s important for us that we love them,” Yatra said.
Avivar el amor (fuel the love) is the message and Vives confirms it saying “It’s a very beautiful song, it has a lot of what this new generation of musicians like Sebastian has… They keep things that are essential like the message, quality, the poetry of his lyrics, and I am very happy that I’ve been invited to participate on this song and to put that personal feeling that is very popular with young people, a Colombian sound that takes them straight to their roots and their land,” says the singer-songwriter.
The video was directed by Daniel Duran. For two days, Vives and Yatra went out to serenade in different parts of Colombia’s capital, going to scenarios such as Nuestra Señora del Buen Consejo, La Candelaria in the historic center of Bogota, and the JW Marriot hotel. In addition, they arrived at the Sisga dam, in Cundinamarca, to film more savannah landscapes, creating an emotive video with a song that mixes the musical patterns that represent the union of a paisa and a samarian.
