Elvis Crespo’s brand-new Amazon Original from Amazon Music shocks the globe. The legendary hit song “Suavemente” by Crespo was remade and distributed on the platform. a song that the renowned merengue performer launched 25 years ago in his debut solo album.
For more than 20 years, “Suavemente” rose to the top of the charts at Latino parties, proms, and other events across the country—even those with non-Spanish speakers in the audience.
The upbeat and infectious rhythm of this merengue dominated the charts, making Elvis a well-known Latin music performer. The song was sampled by newer musicians like Bad Bunny and more seasoned performers like Pitbull and Angie Martinez as a tribute to the Puerto Rican singer-songwriter.
“Suavemente [25 aniversario],” a brand-new Amazon Original, is a unique Amazon Music song that is a part of the worldwide campaign honoring the trailblazers that varied the global music industry and changed the status quo. Elvis Crespo, Daddy Yankee, Karol G, J Balvin, Selena, Shakira, Juan Gabriel, and Celia Cruz are some of the Game Changers.
Elvis Crespo, a fellow Puerto Rican, and the music video for his most well-known song, “Suavemente,” are both directly referenced in Bad Bunny’s music video for “Neverita,” which was released in August.
The video, which has a maximum resolution of 480p on YouTube and is similar to the difficult-to-find music videos from the 1990s, features Bad Bunny in a novel environment while singing and dancing in front of an old-fashioned green screen. Similar to Crespo’s debut in the “Suavemente” video, Bad Bunny enters the clip singing while dressed entirely in black.
