Set in a gorgeous Miami villa, the “Heartbreak” visual finds Fat Joe & Remy Ma living the lavish life. Sun-drenched cabanas & Versace dress shirts set the stage, as the two rap icons wax poetic about their love interests. Remy yearns to jet set with her verse, singing “Let’s go to Paris / Let’s go to Rome / I’m so all into you / I can’t contain it now”. Joe, ever the charmer, is telling his new flame that she can do better, “He don’t acknowledge you,” he raps, but then acquiesces that it’s hard to focus on love when you’re chasing paper. ”I’m out of time, you know it gets hard for me / I gotta respond, the money keep calling me”.
Effortlessly bridging the gap between love song & dancehall, the Carribbean-tinged “Heartbreak” had over 3 million plays & 3,000 downloads on all formats before the video even dropped. With summer rapidly approaching, the island vibes of the ‘Plata O Plomo‘ highlight make it a quintessential sunny-season anthem. Watch “Heartbreak” featuring The-Dream & Vindata below.
Longtime friends & collaborators since the 1990s, Fat Joe & Remy Ma scored a smash last year when they released “All The Way Up”, a collaboration with French Montana & Infrared. With over 325 million total streams, “All The Way Up” was one of the most popular rap songs of 2016 and was certified platinum by the RIAA. With official remixes featuring JAY Z, David Guetta, Snoop Dogg, The Game, & E-40 alongside having ad placements in the trailer for “xXx 3” & “ESPN‘s NFL Sunday Countdown“, the track earned the duo two BET Hip-Hop Awards, the Rhythm & Bars Award at the Soul Train Awards, and GRAMMY Award nominations for Best Rap Performance & Best Rap Song. A culmination of an epic comeback by the two Bronx-born veterans, ‘Plata O Plomo‘ has re-solidified New York’s rightful place in rap: the top of the game.
