Watch Kat DeLuna’s ‘Wanna See U Dance’
Kat DeLuna is back with another hit song. How do we know? She told us herself!
It’s been a while since we have received new music from pop singer Kat DeLuna. Her hit song “Whine Up” topped the charts in 2007, even making it to number one on the Billboard dance/club song chart, and now she’s got a new track set to do the same.
We’ve got the world premiere of Kat’s music video for “Wanna See U Dance.” The song is the first single off of Kat’s upcoming album ViVa Out Loud, set to be released later this year. Check out the video below!
And how do we know that the song is going to be successful? Well, we asked Kat herself how she knows when she got a hit. Here is what she told us: “The first fifteen seconds from when we start writing it. If it doesn’t feel good right away, it’s not a hit.”
On Her Dream Collaboration: “I would love, love to collaborate with Kanye West. I think that would be crazy. Believe it or not, Gotye. I think that I would do amazing and a hot song with them. I love the music.”
On The Album Title ViVa Out Loud: “That’s how I live. You have to live loud. It’s amazing. It’s very musical because it has new sounds. I have ballads, but infused with crazy dub step. And then again, I’m giving you guys the hard core pop, Latin, dance infused dance songs, but with something new.”
On ‘Wanna See U Dance’: “I co-wrote it with one of my best friends. When I’m overseas I like to listen to the songs over there, not like my American stuff. It does have the whole Kat DeLuna sound, which is Latin infused with pop, but I wanted to bring in a little bit of the dub step that you guys will hear in the bridge that is like a new form of dub step, how they doing it in the U.K., and then influence it with a little bit of Brazilian-esque music.”
On Making the Music Video: “I learned how to dance samba, so I had to dance samba on a slippery floor with water, so I was like, ‘Omigod, I hope I don’t fall, please don’t do this.’ I had this scene for the first time ever; I did like a love scene. And I thanked God that the water was cold because the guy was hot. He looked like Leonardo DiCaprio. He’s like a hot top model, so that was fun.”
On Wearing A $150,000 Dress: “I got to wear a dress from House of Worth and we actually pulled it from a museum. It was like an honor wearing like this dress that is in a museum and is amazing, but they’re like, ‘Wait, hold it. Don’t walk so much.’ The dress was worth $150,000. Imagine. I was like ‘Wait, I don’t want to mess it up.’”
On What She’s Most Excited For Fans To See: “This time around I have a new look. I chopped off the hair. It’s new, but just the whole essence of it. It’s just beautiful and it’s a new look for me. The minute they see it they’ll be like, ‘Whoa, a new Kat DeLuna.’”
“I feel like I didn’t want a new Kat DeLuna, it happened. It’s been four years and a half since my first album came out here in the United States and finally my American sophomore album is set to come out this fall. It’s only natural. She’s here. She’s like my alter ego.”
