It is not one but three international superstars, Nicole Scherzinger and Luis Fonsi, teaming up with producer MC Blitzy for an explosive new video and song, ‘She’s Bingo.’ HOLA! USA brings you the exclusive and never-seen-before video, leading up to its official release at 12 noon EST. Watch it here first!
The video is fun, colorful, and above all, global. This take on the modern reinvention of the 1979 disco hit ‘D.I.S.C.O.’ by Ottawan, the French-pop duo, will brighten your day! The new powerhouse duo, Scherzinger and Fonsi, who are collaborating for the first time, can be seen all over the world, appearing ‘in’ different international cities including Tokyo and New York. Curiously enough, the entire video was shot in Miami during COVID.
The Scherzinger-Fonsi formula is a powerful one. Both artists have undeniable and unique talents with a vast collection of professional successes in the industry. Scherzinger is a multi-hyphenated star. Fonsi brings unique Latin flair, along with production credits. Combine these two and they are a match made in heaven.
Scherzinger is the lead singer of one of the most popular girl-bands, ‘The Pussycat Dolls.’ A multi-genre talent, Scherzinger has accrued global success with multiple number one singles. She has also performed with music icons including opera legend Andrea Bocelli. Invested in Broadway musicals, Scherzinger received an Olivier Award nomination for her performance in an Andrew Lloyd Webber revival of ‘Cats,’ that was done in London’s West End. Her global force is also supplemented by her presence on multiple successful television formats including the ‘X-Factor’ in the U.K. and ’Australia’s Got Talent’ on 7 Network in Australia. Scherzinger just finished taping the fifth season of the ‘Masked Singer’ on FOX.
Puerto-Rican born singer, Fonsi is one of the most decorated musicians in the industry, with over 22 years of an artistic career, which aids in his status as one of the most important Latin artists of our generation.
Winner of multiple gold, platinum and diamond records, Fonsi has collected an extensive list of recognition including, GRAMMY nominations, five Latin GRAMMY®, 12 Latin Billboard Awards, five Billboard Awards, 17 Premios Juventud and two American Music Awards, to name a few. ‘Despacito’ was a musical phenomenon, becoming the first Spanish language song to spend 16 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 100 and also have over 1 billion streams on Spotify.
It’s about time that these two powerhouses joined forces on a song that all of us can enjoy! We hope you have fun watching this exclusive video on HOLA! USA.
“I’ve shot a lot of music videos, and this is on another level. Fonsi has made the whole project easy and fun. When I think about ‘Bingo,’ it makes me think about my family because I used to play it with my family growing up, and it’s super fun.” [Scherzinger]
Luis is such a pro, and I’m so excited to be finally collaborating together! We met in Vietnam in 2018, we were both headlining a music festival out there, and I’m grateful that this opportunity presented itself to collaborate.
I don’t have expectations as such, I just know that right now, we could all enjoy uplifting and light hearted music and that’s exactly what this song is, so I hope that it get’s people moving and singing along.
“I love to write and produce, not only sing and perform, and I was really happy that they let me put my own flavor to the song. We need dance, and we need joy in our lives now more than ever. The production is amazing, the sets – I don’t want to use the word surprise because I knew I was dealing with amazing people, but I am very surprised. It’s just the story of traveling the world – the outcome is going to be amazing for everybody.” [Fonsi]
I’m pretty used to it! We have filmed two seasons of ‘The Masked Singer’ on FOX during COVID now, and it’s testament to hard work of the production teams on these projects that we are able to work under safe and controlled measures. I’m used to having daily COVID tests and staying in a bubble! I’m looking forward to being able to hug people again in the future!
Who knows, when it is safe to attend live performances again, I hope there’s an opportunity for Luis and I to perform this song live somewhere!
At the end of 2019, I reunited the Pussycat Dolls after a decade and we released a new single REACT which went to number around the world on the music video charts. We were set to head out on a world tour in March 2020 for most of the year, even visiting parts of Latin America too. Unfortunately COVID had other plans and so we’ve had to temporarily postpone all of the dates until its safe to get out there again! Obviously it’s so difficult to plan a tour right now because every country is recovering from the pandemic at a different rate!
Salsa! I love to dance!
You know, it was such an honor to perform with the orchestra in the U.K but we actually put the whole thing together digitally in a hope to achieve an incredible result in a responsible way. I performed in a studio in Los Angeles, whilst the orchestra was in London, I could hear them in my ears, but couldn’t see anything. The finished result is amazing though, and really felt like I was there!
I met Zooey recently on set when we were both working on a charity project! We were both in hair and make-up at the same time. I am SUCH a big fan of hers, and it was an amazing opportunity to connect and get to know one another, whilst working on something very worthwhile which the world will learn about in the coming weeks!
