Summer doesn’t have to be over just yet. COASTCITY — the Boricua duo made up of Danny Flores and Jean Rodriguez — are proving exactly that with their latest single, “Contigo.” The track, which features urbano mainstay Fuego and the budding vocalist Nat’Lee, is a synthy slice of what COASTCITY have dubbed “Caribbean soul” music: Rhythmic, playful, and always vibey.
While “Contigo” officially drops tomorrow, Remezcla is bringing you an exclusive premiere of COASTCITY’s music video for the single today. Directed by Marcos Ruiz, aka Framegod, “Contigo” sees Rodriguez, Flores, Nat’Lee and Fuego hitting up a beach caught between palm trees and the Miami city skyline in the distance. It’s all parts luxury and Vice City weekend blowout — meaning, of course, there’s red Solo cups, dancing, and yes, even a sailboat involved.
“For this video we didn’t want to complicate the storyline, but rather focus on what a real and fun Miami boat hang with friends is,” says Jean Rodriguez. “We felt that would better compliment the feel and vibe of the song and wanted the world to see what Miami weekends are all about.”
But if “Contigo” is all about endless summer bashes, it’s also a delicious celebration of desire. Nat’Lee, of Telemundo’s Yo Soy El Artista finals, brings lust to every verse with her rich voice. “Cuando me tienes mal, y esa es la verdad, pienso en ti,” she sings, admitting the lengths we all go to in craving those who already make us lovesick.
It’s almost fitting here then, that according to Danny Flores, the video “was shot under turbulent weather.” Like Miami’s sudden storms, love can get messy real fast. Yet you can always take a nod from Fuego’s chill energy — which finds him delivering his verse seated on the deck — and just agree to face it all sin estrés.

“Contigo” is the 4th single from COASTCITY’s forthcoming EP, ‘1190,’ set to be released Nov. 1.
