Thursday 18 May 2023

In the exhilarating new music video for "Toretto," J Balvin proves he's got the skills to race alongside the Fast and Furious crew. The track, named after Vin Diesel's iconic character Dominic Toretto, is Balvin's contribution to the Fast X soundtrack and features a cameo appearance by Diesel himself.

The visually captivating video showcases Balvin performing the pulsating track as he skillfully maneuvers race cars through an empty port. As the video concludes, Diesel bestows upon Balvin the ultimate honor in cinema history—membership into the beloved "Familia." (Unfortunately, for those with refined musical tastes, Diesel doesn't showcase his singing abilities on "Toretto." However, fans may recall his past karaoke videos and his collaboration with Kygo on "Feel Like I Do.")

"Toretto" is just one exciting addition to the star-studded Fast X soundtrack, which includes tracks from YoungBoy Never Broke Again, BTS' Jimin, Myke Towers, Maria Becerra, NLE Choppa, Ludmilla, and more. The album will be released on Friday, May 19, alongside the premiere of Fast X.

Directed by Louis Leterrier, Fast X brings together a remarkable cast, including returning stars Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jordana Brewster, Sung Kang, Jason Statham, John Cena, Scott Eastwood, Helen Mirren, and Charlize Theron. Additionally, the film features a surprise appearance by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in a reported cameo. Joining the cast are Brie Larson, Alan Richtson, Daniela Melchior, and Rita Moreno, ensuring an action-packed and star-studded experience for fans.
