Alvaro Diaz & Cazzu Are Mischievous Partners in Crime in New ‘Deportivo’ Video: Exclusive

Alvaro Diaz and Cazzu have joined forces to bring to life the story of a dangerous yet loving relationship in the new “Deportivo” video premiering on Billboard today (July 9).

Though this is not the pair’s first collaborative effort, Diaz tells Billboard that he’s always been a fan of Cazzu and was in search of the perfect song for a collaboration.

“I proposed this song to her and she immediately said yes,” the Puerto Rican artist, part of the NEON16 management roster, says. “In less than a month, she added her vocals. We were excited to do the video but then the pandemic hit. I started thinking of ways to make it work, we couldn’t let this win us.”

With lyrics such as “God, please take care of her, don’t let her get in trouble” and “she’s not a princess but I’ll build her a castle,” the infectious trap is about a man who’s in love with a girl that’s no good for him.

“It’s about a girl who’s not normal but she’s still your girl and no one can touch her or criticize her,” Diaz elaborates. “You’re willing to do whatever you want for her and to protect her.”

In the music video, Diaz and Cazzu, portrayed by a model wearing a tablet with the singer’s face on it, are mischievous partners-in-crime. Diaz is clearly in love as Cazzu is doing her thing—robbing banks and breaking into cars, amongst other things.

“I told Cazzu I had this crazy idea for the video and she loved it,” he says. “She did her shots in Argentina and I filmed mine in Puerto Rico. Everything came out neat.”

In addition to “Deportivo,” Diaz says he’s whipping up an important project dubbed Diaz Antes that will include his two EP’s as well as more music.
