“It means a lot to me to be able to support a new generation of artists because when I started, I did not feel that support in Colombia and I don’t want them to go through that. It was other international artists and my loyal fans, who gave me that boost I needed to continue to thrive. I don’t want history to repeat itself, I want to see them shine, because there is a lot of talent in Colombia that deserve to be stars and fulfill their dreams, as much as I have been able to,” Maluma expressed.
“L.N.E.M (GATA)” is a song written among friends that talks about their experiences amidst the urban nightlife scene and all of its trappings. Maluma creates this song alongside Blessd, whom he collaborates on “Imposible” Remix, a song that has been in the top 50 of Spotify Colombia for 3 months. They are joined by Kapla and Miky, a new urban duo who individually have been in the industry for more than 10 years and are known for their important contribution to the genre as producers and songwriters.
The music video was shot in Medellín, Colombia by directors Camilo Bourbon and Oscar Vásquez from renowned Colombian production company 36 Grados.
