Wasuta teams with Spanish YouTube superstars Adexe & Nau for “Yo Quiero Vivir” music video
The music video for Japanese idol group Wasuta (The World Standard)’s surprise collaboration with hit Spanish duo Adexe & Nau was released today on YouTube. In the multi-language remix of “Yo Quiero Vivir” (“I want to live”), Wasuta members sing verses in Japanese while dancing through Akihabara, Shibuya, Odaiba, and Tokyo Bay.
Wasuta shot their parts for the music video in just 2 days, fearlessly performing in public spaces just as they did for their recent summertime video “Tapioca Milk Tea” and showing off challenging street choreography with modern fashion style.
“Yo Quiero Vivir” is the first international collaboration for both artists, the result of their mutual admiration for each other’s music. “When I first heard about the collaboration with Spanish artist Adexe & Nau, I was totally surprised!” said Ruka, who’s featured in Shibuya’s famous scramble crossing and leading a squad of dancers in Tokyo Bay. “I truly feel honored to make our connection through ‘genuine’ world music! I hope many people will enjoy listening to it!”
“It was our first time as Wasuta to work with backup dancers,” added Wasuta leader Nanase. “Plus all the members got to dance around spaces that reflect cool places in Japan. It was really amazing.”
Wasuta just released their min-album JUMPING SUMMER in June, and will perform at @JAM Expo 2018 on August 25, Inazuma Rock Fes on September 22, and Japan Weekend Madrid September 29 and 30.
Wasuta x Adexe y Nau – “Yo Quiero Vivir” will be released on Apple Music, Spotify, and all digital platforms worldwide on August 19.
