“Adiós” is the first single from Ricky Martin’s forthcoming album, which is scheduled for an early 2015 release. You can find the track at iTunes.
The uber-stylish video was filmed on location at the Long Beach, Calif., speakeasy Harvelle’s, which opened in 1931 during Prohibition. Ricky Martin plays five characters – a policeman, bartender, bouncer, mobster and singer.
“Adiós” features dancers from Harlow Gold, the cutting-edge L.A. burlesque troupe founded by world-renowned choreographers Tracy Phillips and Dominic Carbone.
Note as the dancers wind their way into the audience, they begin to flirt with the crowd. First the female dancers hit on the men, then work their way to the woman in the audience. Not heavy-handed, just there. Without being nasty or dirty, it creates a very sexy, lightly erotic atmosphere.
Oh – and yeah, Ricky’s still super-easy on the eyes. Excuse me while I watch this one more time. Or two…
Ricky will be touring Mexico in support of the new project – check his tour dates at the official website.
