Juanes Releases 'La Luz' As First Single In Upcoming Album (VIDEOS)

Juanes has been on fire this year -- and his future only looks brighter with the release of his new single “La Luz.”

The Colombian superstar released his new up tempo party anthem on Monday. The track explores the electrifying connection between two people in the dance floor when the lights suddenly go out.

His chart-topping record, “MTV Unplugged,” sent Juanes around the globe, performing 120 concert in 26 countries. The live album won two Latin Grammys and the Grammy for best “Best Latin Pop Album” -- but the singer isn’t stopping there.

“La Luz” is the first single off his upcoming album produced by Steve Lillywhite, in collaboration with Café Tacvba’s Emmanuel “Meme” del Real.

The video for the single was filmed in the historic coastal city of Cartagena, Colombia, and is expected to be released soon. Juanes’ new album is set to be released in 2014.
