Carlos Rivera joins forces with two of regional Mexican music’s superstars. The Mexican heartthrob teamed up with Carin León and Edén Muñoz for his “Alguien Me Espera En Madrid” music video, which came out on Friday night (Mar. 24).

“Alguien Me Espera En Madrid” is the new single from Rivera’s latest album Sincerándome. The LP marked Rivera’s most personal release to date, where he reflected on the ups and downs of his 19-year career. His song with León and Muñoz was inspired by a moment in his career when his work opportunities dried up in Mexico, so he went to Spain and later starred in a live theater version of The Lion King.

In “Alguien Me Espera en Madrid,” Rivera blends the sounds of Mexico and Spain. Banda music and the soulful voices from León and Muñoz meet the kick of flamenco music influences. Rivera sings with León and Muñoz about leaving situations where they’re not wanted behind to move to Madrid. The genre-bending banger is a feel-good highlight on Rivera’s album.

In the “Alguien Me Espera en Madrid” music video, Rivera performs the song with León and Muñoz in Mexico. There are still influences of Spain throughout the vibrantly-colored video, including moments when Rivera hits his flamenco-inspired moves. 

Rivera will be bringing his hip-shaking dance moves to the U.S. this summer. On June 7, he will kick off His Un Tour A Todas Partes stateside in Denver. Throughout June, Oct., and early Nov., Rivera will perform in major cities across the country like L.A., San Jose, New York City, Chicago, and Miami. The tour will visit 20 countries overall this year.

One of Rivera’s collaborators, Muñoz, will also tour the U.S. this year. The hit singer and songwriter will kick off his Consejos Gratis Tour on Aug. 25 in Brooklyn. The 14-date tour will wrap up in Irving, TX, on Nov. 11.
