Now you can watch Nicky Jam’s full video to his new single “El amante” (The Lover).
The video, released on Jan. 16, kicks off with a very believable “fight” between Nicky Jam’s neighbors: The girl he loves and her partner, played by actor Noel Gugliemi (The Dark Knight Rises, TV series Fresh Off the Boat). Their discussion leads Nicky Jam to start vamping on his keyboard and singing, “I’m tired of being your lover/ I’m telling you on my end/ I can’t deal with it anymore/ I hate listening to him saying he’s your owner/ my pride is killing me/ I can’t stand it anymore.”
As Gugliemi leaves the apartment building and looks menacingly over his shoulder at Nicky Jam up in his balcony, we could think this is going to end bad. But no. “El amante” turns playful as Nicky Jam serenades his girl from the neighborhood street in what becomes a bona fide block party.
