Platinum-selling artist, DJ, and producer Dillon Francis has shared a new music video for “Ven” (feat. Arcángel & Quimico Ultra Mega), the first single off his forthcoming Spanish language studio album. Francis premiered the clip last night during the Los40 Dance Music Awards in Mexico City, where he also performed. Directed by Michael Garcia, the clip was shot in Washington Heights, NYC and stars Francis alongside vocalists Arcángel & Quimico Ultra Mega.
Arcángel is one of the most respected artists in Latin music, a pioneer of the reggaeton movement. The Puerto Rican rapper/producer/songwriter began his career as a member of the duo Arcángel y De la Ghetto before embarking on a solo career with his debut album El Fenómeno. His latest full length Los Favoritos was released in 2015, debuting inside the top 10 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart. Quimico Ultra Mega is rapper/trap vocalist from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. His latest album Deluxe was released in 2017.

Francis’ forthcoming album was executive produced by Toy Selectah and recorded in New York City, Miami, Dominican Republic, and Mexico City. Harkening back to his 2011 breakout Westside! EP, the album sees him revisit his early Latin influences and moombahton roots. The album is due for release later this year via Francis’ own IDGAFOS record label.
IDGAFOS originated from Francis’ 2011 song of the same name, which at the time, reflected the culmination of his signature musical productions. The term has since evolved into a rallying cry for all things Dillon Francis — his clothing line, epic live show, and now an outlet with which to release his new music. In his own words, IDGAFOS is “to be spirited and happy… to never give a fck or sht about anything but remaining positive.”
This year, Francis will perform at numerous international music festivals and resume his residency at the Wynn Las Vegas for the third consecutive year. A complete list of upcoming live dates and ticket information can be found HERE.
