OVER 590 MILLION TOTAL STREAMS AND 700 MILLION TOTAL VIDEO VIEWS
(LONDON, U.K., TUESDAY 19 JANUARY 2020) Latin GRAMMY® winner and current GRAMMY® nominee Camilo continues his momentum into 2021 with his new single and video ‘Ropa Cara’ (‘Expensive Clothes’), out today, available on all streaming platforms via Sony Music Latin. Listen and watch the official music video for ‘Ropa Cara’ [HERE].
An engaging, honest storyteller, Camilo shares a vignette from his youth that many people will relate to: “It’s a song about the lengths we go to for love, as ridiculous as they may seem. The story occurred at a time in my life when I tried to alter who I was for love. I have been very open about what I’m living today, and I felt like it was time to share a little bit more about my past.”
Written and produced by Camilo and Édgar Barrera, ‘Ropa Cara’ offers authentic and direct lyrics, while incorporating the Cuban Son, a tropical specific genre which he frequently heard at home growing up, and felt was the perfect rhythm to accompany this song about youthful memories.
“Ropa Cara” is the third single from Camilo’s upcoming sophomore album. Its music video, directed by Evaluna Montaner and Santiago Achaga, was filmed last month in Bogotá, and co-stars Camilo and Argentinian actress and model Macarena Achaga.

Before debuting as a performing artist, this musician and producer from Medellín, Colombia, had written airplay smashes for artists such as Anitta (“Veneno”), Becky G and Natti Natasha (“Sin Pijama”), Sebastián Yatra (“Ya No Tiene Novio” with Mau y Ricky,) “Desconocidos” with Manuel Turizo, “Mi Mala” with Karol G, “Sin Querer Queriendo” with Lali), Juanes (“Pa Dentro,” “Querer Mejor” with Alessia Cara), Prince Royce (“El Clavo”), Bomba Estéreo (“Internacionales”) and Bad Bunny (“Si Estuviésemos Juntos”).
In March 2019, Camilo unveiled his first solo single and video “No Te Vayas” with Sony Music Latin and HAMM (Hecho a Mano Music). Shortly after, he launched his first promotional tour, visiting Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Panama, USA, Puerto Rico and Spain.
Camilo released his second single and video “Tutu” with Pedro Capó in August, achieving overwhelming success. The radio success of “Tutu” caught the attention of the international superstar Shakira, who took to Instagram to ask Camilo to let her join him and Pedro Capó on a remix of the song.
In September, Camilo received his first Latin GRAMMY® nomination, for Song of the Year, as co-writer of “Querer Mejor” by Juanes featuring Alessia Cara. Furthermore, he is co-producer on Ricardo Montaner’s latest album Montaner, which is up for the 2020 GRAMMY® in the Best Latin Pop Album category. He’s also received nominations to the Latin American Music Awards, Premios MIAW and Premios ASCAP. Camilo’s talent and charisma have helped him garner over 3.5 million YouTube subscribers, while his music continues to win over new fans around the world.
