In a thrilling new release, Álvaro Díaz has teamed up with long-time collaborator and GRAMMY-winning producer, Tainy, to deliver an energetic single titled “Fatal Fantassy.” The track, released under Universal Music Latino, is a testament to their innovative approach to Latin music, and it's already generating buzz for its undeniable vibrancy.
The duo, respected for their genre-bending contributions, prove yet again that their collaborative efforts are a recipe for hit-making. This isn't their first rodeo together; earlier this year, they turned heads with the standout track “Paranormal” from Tainy’s critically acclaimed album ‘DATA.’
“Fatal Fantassy” draws inspiration from classic underground reggaeton records from Puerto Rico. Díaz, shedding light on the song, explains, “It tells the story of a breakup and what follows…partying until the sun comes up and meeting a girl who can fulfill your fantasy.” This track is a tantalizing glimpse into Díaz’s forthcoming and highly anticipated album, ‘Sayonara,’ slated for an early 2024 release.
The single's visuals, directed by Juanchi González, are equally compelling. Inspired by a deleted scene from one of Díaz’s favorite films—a significant source of inspiration for ‘Sayonara’—the video navigates a dreamlike narrative. It portrays Díaz in a surreal chase of desires, oscillating between dreams and reality.
Adding to the excitement, Díaz recently earned a nomination from the Rolling Stone en Español Awards under the category "Voice of the Audience." He also performed “Fatal Fantassy” live at the award show, held at the Fillmore Theatre in Miami Beach, FL. The inaugural edition of the awards and its red carpet event was broadcasted live via TNT and HBO Max in Latin America.
As we await more news and music from Álvaro Díaz, “Fatal Fantassy” stands as a vibrant reminder of his and Tainy’s dynamic musical prowess. Stay tuned for more electrifying releases from this dynamic duo!
