Sebastian Yatra & Guaynaa Revive a Latin Classic With ‘Chica Ideal’: Watch Their Post-Pandemic Fantasy Video

For his 26th birthday Thursday (Oct. 15), Sebastian Yatra decided to celebrate with new music, recruiting his good friend Guaynaa for witty and flirtatious lyrics.

Coined “Chica Ideal,” the Colombian pop star teamed up with the Puerto Rican artist for a fresh twist on the 2003 hit “Quiero Una Chica” by Latin Dreams.

“I’m in love with every single part of the song,” Yatra tells Billboard. “It was worth taking the risk because the original song is pure joy and happiness and has that touch of nostalgia that takes you back to your best days.”

Produced by Ovy on the Drums, Yatra elaborates on why Guaynaa was the best fit for this collaboration. “I went to one of his showcases during Premio Lo Nuestro, and his energy onstage drove me crazy. His vibe, his originality. I had to work with him,” he expressed. “It’s so amazing to do this song in the way we did it and the way Guaynaa sings in it.”

In the music video, Yatra and Guaynaa are seen playing basketball in the year 2020 with a group of people wearing masks. After losing the ball and searching for it in the woods, they wind up at a lit pool party (pandemic-free) in the year 2021.

The release of “Chica Ideal” marks a new stage in Yatra’s personal life and career, which he says have evolved because of the global health crisis. “When I sum up my year, I think it’s all been very positive if you look at it from the right perspective,” he concludes.
