The 15-time Latin Grammy-winning artist offered details of the musical piece “Looking for the horse” recorded with the “Caballo Mayor”, Johnny Ventura.

“It’s a project we’ve been working on and we were surprised by Johnny’s death, but the song is on the new album. It will be a tasty merengue to dance and in the concert it will be performed by Milly Quezada and Jandy Ventura”, said the famous Colombian artist.

On the other hand, the artist revealed his return to the cinema this year with the leading role in the series “El Club de los Graves”. On this occasion, Vives enters the skin of a music teacher, Amaranto Molina.
