Pitbull, J Balvin, and Camila Cabello hit the streets of Cuba to party for their colourful new music video.

Hey Ma was recorded for the soundtrack of the new Fast & Furious movie, The Fate of the Furious, and the Spanish-language promo dropped on Friday.

In it, former Fifth Harmony star Camila raises eyes and temperatures as she struts through the streets of Havana, while Balvin sings. Halfway through the video, Pitbull steps out of a white sports car to rap in Spanish.

An English version of the song will debut on 14 April (17), the same day the movie is released.

“Working with Pitbull and J Balvin was a huge honour,” Camila says. “I’m so excited to be a part of this incredible (film) franchise, especially with it being filmed in my original home of Cuba.”

The Fate of the Furious soundtrack will also feature appearances from Wiz Khalifa, Migos, Ty Dolla $ign, and Travis Scott.

Meanwhile, Pitbull has revealed his new track originally featured Americans Britney Spears and Romeo Santos, but film producers wanted a more Latin vibe and so Cuban Camila and Colombian Balvin were added.

“At first, it was me and Romeo Santos, and Britney Spears was on the record,” Pitbull says, “(The) Fast and Furious (producers) love the record and they brought on board J Balvin and Camila Cabello. So, it’s been an interesting journey.”

He’s not ruling out releasing Britney’s version of Hey Ma: “You never know, there might be a remix with Romeo and Britney in the future… It was an honour to be able to work with Britney. She was a great sport, she’s been in the business for years. She said, ‘Don’t even worry about that. We’ll use it for the remix, or we’ll do another record together’.”

After exploring the “dark and raw landscape” that was Badlands, Halsey is ready to unleash her second full-length album.

The singer announced on Tuesday (March 7) that LP No. 2 will arrive in June and will be titled hopeless fountain kingdom. Her label confirmed the news in a press release, which emphasized that the tongue-twisting title is all lower case.

Halsey shared the exciting news on Twitter, pairing the announcement with a sultry topless photo. In it, she stands sideways against a cloudy, dark background and looks down over her shoulder while holding a rose to her face.

As gorgeous as that photo is, though, Halsey revealed that it’s not her new album’s artwork… though it feasibly could hint at some kind of dreamy, fairytale-like vibe for her new set of tunes. Her current Twitter bio, after all, is a dream-centric quote from Romeo and Juliet: “True, I talk of dreams. which are the children of an idle brain…”

As for what hopeless fountain kingdom refers to, a few eagle-eyed fans were quick to point out that there’s a real fountain with the same name outside off the L train’s Halsey Street stop in Brooklyn. And — get this — it has the word “rose” engraved on it. So… that doesn’t seem at all coincidental, right?

Halsey’s been subtly teasing her new album for a while now, which she previously told MTV News would be another conceptual project. Most recently, she invited 100 lucky fans to a church in London to hear her new music, and they all cried together, presumably because of the sheer magic of it all. “There are big things coming,” Halsey recently wrote on Twitter. “And I didn’t hold anything back.”

On Tuesday (March 7), Zayn Malik tweeted a 28-second teaser video of new music he’s working on followed by tweets that promised: “Lil taster…More to come.”

The clip is mainly instrumental, overlaid with chanting, and features a poodle dancing beneath a hand holding a bone with the word “Excited.”

A fan tweeted back, “Taster? B—- new music???,” to which Malik responded, “Really no need for derogatory terminology like that …I’m excited too though,” along with a winky face.
