The Weeknd has joined forces with Latin superstar Maluma on the remix to his global hit ‘Hawái’
On the song, the Toronto superstar sings in Spanish for the first time and delivers solid vocals which should help take the song even higher on the charts. Puede que no te haga falta na’, aparentemente na’ / Hawái de vacacione’, mis fеlicitacione’ / Muy lindo en Instagram lo que postеas / Pa’ que yo vea cómo te va, pa’ que yo vea,” Weeknd croons on the chorus.

A music video for the song has been released as well, directed by Jessy Terrero. Miguel Lua, who oversees Maluma’s music career and strategy, revealed to Billboard that the remix happened in just three weeks after Weeknd expressed his desire to do something with the song. “I said we were considering a remix of ‘Hawai,’ and The Weeknd is on our list.” Literally minutes later, Slaiby (The Weeknd’s manager) called back and said The Weeknd loved “Hawái” and was already thinking up ideas for the song.
