Lauren Jauregui has released the track and video for “Lento,” produced by Tainy, who is on the track and in the video. Jauregui, formerly of Fifth Harmony, said she hopes the upbeat track brings enjoyment to people who under duress.
The song pays homage to the 23-year-old Jauregui’s Cuban-American heritage and the bilingual track conveys emotion at an important time.
“I had planned to give you this first taste of what’s coming for some time,” she said. “There was truly no way any of us could have prepared for what is happening right now, so I hope you receive ‘Lento’ with as much grace and love as is intended. I hope dancing to it helps your spirit feel joy, as you spend time with your loved ones and continue to cultivate love in the face of fear and uncertainty.”
The video “Lento” was photographed in Florida and directed by director and photographer Dawit N.M. The video premiered today on Jauregui’s YouTube page.
