“Pedro Capó and Farruko's ‘Calma (Remix)’ is taking over streaming platforms… Pedro Capó gave a romantic vibe to 2018 with his single ‘Calma’ … ‘Calma (Remix)’ is a reggae-infused song that organically meshes Capo’s pop flair with Farruko’s urban pulses. The music video is an invitation for disconnection; a subtle request to escape… The sun, the Caribbean sea, and its beaches are the antidote for bleakness” – Billboard
Toronto, ON – January 30, 2019 – Last week’s global YouTube music charts saw Pedro Capó’s smash single Calma (Remix) become Latin Music’s latest standout, garnering over 86 million views in one week (totaling over 500 million views combined since release), and reached #1 on both the Global Top Music Videos and Global Top Songs charts.
Likewise, climbing fast on Spotify, Calma (Remix) reached #5 on the platform’s Global Top 50 chart (amongst tracks from Post Malone, Ariana Grande, Halsey, Sam Smith & Bad Bunny), and #2 on the Spotify Viral 50 Chart in Canada! Having also reached #1 in multiple countries at Deezer (14), Spotify (11), Apple Music (9), and Shazam, Calma (Remix) became Latin music’s overall #1 streaming song in the world. That streaming success is now crossing over to the airwaves as well, as the track has reached #1 on eight Latin American official radio charts, and recently surged into the Top 10 of Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs as the chart's Greatest Gainer.
With last year’s release of his now trademark single, Calma, Capó created a welcoming invitation for people around the world to escape the everyday chaos and stress of life with an immersion into the more relaxed beach vibe of his native island.
Soon after release, urban music star, Farruko, quickly became one of the song’s biggest fans and personally reached out to Pedro about a collaborative remix. The perfect pairing of likewise relaxed urban beats, with the track’s laidback melody has created a widely embraced global hit that has quickly claimed over 600 million combined streams, and seen Pedro collect platinum certification in the U.S. Latin market (5x), Mexico (3x) and across multiple countries in Latin America. Next up, watch for Pedro to bring the Calma vibe direct to live audiences on tour – see full dates below.
