Chesca, Villano Antillano & Corina Smith Unite on Girl-Power Perreo ‘Activa’: Watch
Puerto Rican singer-songwriter Chesca has joined forces with emerging trans rapper Villano Antillano and Venezuelan pop star Corina Smith for her new single “Activa,” with the official music video premiering exclusively on Billboard Thursday (Oct. 13).
The three female acts bring their unique, sensual, and captivating flows to the forefront. They also share empowering lyrics about self-acceptance, your place, your body and your sexuality. Backed by a hard-hitting perreo with futuristic beats, part of the track even references timeless reggaeton bangers such as Yaga & Mackie’s “La Batidora” and Don Omar’s “Conteo.”
“Estamos toa’ la’ baby’s activa/pa’ lante y pa’ tras y dandole hasta abajo/Esto acaba empezar nadie se va” (All the babies are active/ To the front to the back and all the way down/ This is only the beginning, nobody is leaving), goes the catchy chorus.
“I am happy with my career. I thank God for allowing me to do what I do,” Chesca, a former Billboard Latin Artist on the Rise, tells Billboard via email. “I love to put a lot into my work and manage be an example of how dreams can happen. This is only the beginning of many surprises that I have for fans — new music, collaborations and more are what’s next.”
Smith says, “This collaboration was a wonderful experience because we as Latinas are exchanging dreams & talents between sister countries which allows us to strengthen our presence music .”
The music video, featuring Chesca, Villana, and Corina, is the best representation of the nightlife in La Isla del Encanto. You can see it below.
