“EN MIS TACONES” Available Here
Sure to be an instant favorite on the radio and at parties both physical and virtual, “En Mis Tacones” is another triumph for Fanny Lu, who has enjoyed a 15-year career as one of Latin music’s most vibrant interpreters. Music fans will love the bilingual wordplay and the bubbly fusions of urban, pop, cumbia and vallenato genres.
This team is international, as the lyrics name-drop “Fanny Lu la Colombiana, La Cantú la Mexicana, Melanie la Americana.”
These three captivating artists are here to motivate women and remind them that they have the power in relationships. As Fanny Lu sings, “Ponte en mis tacones pa’ que entiendas y que esté claro quien lleva la rienda. Lo que yo tengo no es regala’o, el que tenga tienda, que la atienda.” Or as Melanie says it in English: “I thought that you could walk a day in my heels, I think it’s pretty clear who the boss is, because of my money I don’t need you, If you want to be my only, have to own it.”
The invitation is to put yourself in the shoes of others, men in the shoes of women, but it is also important that the invitation extends to all human beings who must understand the condition and position of others. “Nothing more appropriate than putting yourself in each other’s shoes! ” Fanny Lu says.
And the singers’ reference to heels is not just metaphorical, it’s literal, as the music video proves!
In this innovative video created by Iñigo Abaroa and Miguel Ferrer from Magic Films (Víctor Manuelle, Raquel Sofía, María León), the three artists lure 3 men into a “Femininity Test.” Soon these gentlemen discover that they are wearing heels, inventing choreographies, and turning this song into their anthem. At least they think they are – the heels that the men are wearing are actually under the control of Fanny, Paty and Melanie, who orchestrate their every move almost like a video game.
Producing this video during the pandemic required creativity from Magic Films and flexibility from the artists. The production company sent professional lighting kits, props, a smoke machine and more to the singers’ homes and provided direction via videoconferencing.
The results are phenomenal, and prove what can be accomplished when talent meets ingenuity. Known around the world for her hits “Cosas Bonitas,” “Romper El Hielo” and “Tú No Eres Para Mi,” Fanny Lu recently appeared on the Univision program Mira Quién Baila All-Stars.
During her nearly 15-year solo career, Paty Cantú has dazzled us with hits including “Valiente,” “Corazón Bipolar” and “Afortunadamente No Eres Tú.”
Melanie Pfirrman is an emerging star who is gaining momentum with her motivating smash “Suda” featuring Pitbull and IAMCHINO.
