Sweeping shots of beautiful beaches? Check. Ludacris hanging out with hot girls, probably popping bottles of bub? Check. Enrique Iglesias looking foxy on a giant boat and stepping of a private jet? Check and double check. Those elements are all present and accounted for in the two sneak peeks of Iglesias’ forthcoming video for his single “Tonight.” As you may have figured out by now, we’re a bit obsessed with the raunchy club jam here at MTV News, so we’re equally stoked to see how Enrique will capture the song’s joie de vivre in visual form.
Iglesias has noted that when he sat down to record the song about being straightforward with a lady about his intentions to bed her, he didn’t want to sound “arrogant.” (Writer’s aside: Even an arrogant Enrique is a hot Enrique.)
“For me, the most important thing when I was in the studio singing it was, ‘How do I sing this and not sound arrogant, like an idiot or way too out there?’ And that’s really what it came down to,” he explained to MTV News. “I did it a bunch of times, and I heard it back, and it felt good for me, the phrase: ‘Please excuse, I don’t mean to be rude, but tonight, I’m [f—ing] you.’ I thought I didn’t want it to be one of those songs I heard on the radio and say to myself, ‘Man, I wish I would have sang that.’ And I felt it was one of those special ones.”
Well, it seems that while this video will never be “Hero” (undoubtedly one of the best clips ever made), we’re excited to see what Enrique has up his sleeve for the clip for this very, very special track.
