Puerto Rico’s Plan B, released their first video since the 2010 album House of Pleasure and maybe it’s just me, but it seems that even the snowflakes in the video are melting from the sensual heat of the lyrics. Comprised of Checho on the vocals and rapper Maldy on the verses, “Te Dijeron” is a musical expression of that burning, uncontrollable desire felt by lovers worldwide. Checho sings out a soulful chorus that affirms his infatuation for a woman, while Maldy’s high-pitched rapid rap lines provide a direct and energetic insight into this passion as well.
The music for this video was produced by none other than the Dominican team of Luny Tunes, who it can be argued shaped the genre of reggaeton into its modern form with the sounds they used for countless hits around the years 2004-2006 (ie. Daddy Yankee – “Gasolina,” Wisin & Yandel – “Rakata,” etc.). The haunting sounds of their synths are well complemented by the reggae influence of Panamanian producer Predikador, whose contribution I especially hear in the moving bass line and the drums on the hook.
Listen for these sounds in the video, which has the feel of a short love movie, interspersed with scenes of the artists. It essentially involves a man who has returned to town in search of the woman he loves and he has to ask several people for her whereabouts before they are reunited. The ending has a BIG twist – did you see it coming? Enjoy!
