If Karol G’s bright red hair is any indication, she’s ready for a new chapter, and it all started on Thursday (August 25) with new single “Gatúbela (Catwoman)”, featuring one of the pioneers of the Urban Latin, Maldy.
Produced by DJ MAFF, the song is infectious old-school reggaeton mixed with intense perreo Beats. In the lyrics, Karol G is fiery and unabashed, chanting, “I ain’t with nobody but I’m addicted/ I’m high, I feel like a Catwoman/ It feels good when he moves my panties to the side/ That it feels good when you kiss me there.
The clip, directed by Pedro Artola in Barcelona, Spain, is inspired by vintage horror films, showing the Colombian artist – who debuts with red hair in a video – drenched in blood as she flees from the moon. But before she’s caught in the act running off in the dark, she’s feeling ultra sultry in a locker room full of equally sweaty people she gets cheeky with.
“Gatúbela” comes four months after Karol G released her first single of the year, “Provenza,” and became the first woman to break into No. 1 on the Hot Latin Songs chart (dated May 14).
Next, the artist is set to kick off his $trip Love Tour, produced by AEG Presents, on September 6 at Allstate Arena in Chicago. It will make pit stops in New York, Toronto, Miami, Los Angeles, Houston, Las Vegas and more before finishing Oct. 29 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver.
“There’s never been a tour where they sing to love so naughty,” the singer previously posted on Instagram, alongside a nearly minute-long video showing images of her in bed and clothes. stages of professional dancers. Tickets are available through KarolGMusic.com.
The $trip Love Tour follows Karol’s Bichota Tour in 2021, which grossed $10.9 million and sold 128,000 tickets for 24 shows according to figures reported to Billboard Boxscore.
