By Stevie Connor.



Marc Anthony kicks off 2024 with a new single and video, this time with his own twist on Bachata music, titled Punta Cana".  

 

In "Punta Cana," Marc Anthony displays a captivating exploration of one of the most celebrated genres of tropical music, where he skillfully combines traditional bachata elements with his distinct style and mesmerizing vocals. 

 

The new track is a co-production by Marc Anthony and Sergio George and the union of the music creators, highlights a unique depth and allure to the composition.  The contributing writers of the song include: Marc Anthony, Lenier Mesa, Carlos Humberto Domínguez, Roberto Carlos Sierra Casseres, José Carlos García, Edgardo Antonio Miranda Beiro and Andy Clay Cruz. 

 

The music video was directed by award winning creator Carlos Pérez (Elastic People) and features Marc Anthony’s new Bulova watch collection.

 

Lyrically, "Punta Cana" delves into the realm of nostalgia and longing. It artfully portrays the complexities of a past love, evoking a profound yearning for the revival of what was once a beautiful romance. The chorus, with its emotive repetition, effectively conveys the central theme—a deep desire for reconciliation and reconnection.

 

"Punta Cana" emerges as a noteworthy addition to the Bachata genre, and is a celebration to one of the world-known sounds of the Caribbean. The title will be included in Marc Anthony’s new album, set for release Spring 2024.
