Nicky Jam poured his heart into his song “Melancolía,” and now fans can see his emotions in its newly released music video. Filmed in the desert as the sun begins to set, the video gives an intimate look and feel as Jam sings to the camera and captivates listeners with a melodic trip through the memories of a relationship that will no longer be.
Directed by Gus, who has filmed many of Jam’s other videos, the video’s aesthetics symbolize all the beauty of a past relationship that now comes to an end, with a period of “darkness,” right before a new love comes along and the sun rises again. With its beautiful melody and impressive vocalizations, this soulful ballad puts on display Jam’s vocal range.
“Everything that has a beginning has an end // All that becomes all. One day becomes nothing // Everything changes here, what did you expect // What goes up has to come down,” Nicky sings in Spanish in the chorus, in this very real scenario that resonates with so many.
“Melancolía” has become one of the most praised songs from his latest album, Infinity. His most versatile album to date takes the listener on a trip through all the genres that he has mastered throughout his career. The 15 track album portrays all the different facets of Jam’s artistry, from the raw and real rap verses to the romantic and melodic slow-tempo songs that showcase his singing voice.
In September, Jam performed his hit song “Miami,” another from his latest album, at the 2021 Billboard Latin Music Awards. The chart-topping single defined the limits of temptation in a long-lived relationship. A ubiquitous life story in which a man is tempted to betray his partner with a girl who represents something new, different, and forbidden.
As the year comes to an end, Jam is gearing to kick off the new year with his 2022 Infinity Tour. Named after his recent album, Jam will make stops in major cities in the US, including New York, Los Angeles, and Boston, before closing up on March 27 at the WAMU Theatre in Seattle. The tour will also make stops in Montreal and Toronto, Canada, during the month of February.
