Sofi Tukker teamed with Brazilian pop star and drag queen Pabllo Vittar on their infectious “Energia (Parte 2) remix. The official music video for the track was filmed in Portugal and the three artists are featured in it singing in various locations, up on rocks, in front of the water, on a theater-style stage complete with a red curtain and lighted arch and against a back drop of pink flamingos.
The song is pure house, which is driven by a strong, pulsating bass line and sharp drum beats. Vittar flaunts her vocals with a fiery blend of sass and bravado. The trio makes their goal very clear in the chorus: They want to enjoy a lot of their “energia” (energy) – and from the looks of the fun they’re having in the video, mission accomplished.
This is the first time Vittar has worked with Sofi Tukker and the New York native duo gushed gratitude about the experience in a comment under the YouTube post which reads, “We had the most fun making this video. It was our first time ever in Portugal and first time ever working with Pabllo and her team. Pabllo and her team were an absolute joy to work with, the video and production team were all absolute joys. We were wide-eyed and giddy the whole day, so happy to be alive and creating with such incredible people! We hope you can feel that ENERGY from the video! 💙⚡”
Vittar has also worked with Charli XCX on her single “I Got It” from her 2017 Pop 2 mixtape, as well as Major Lazer on “Sua Cara.” “Energia” is a non-album single and a remix of the original track found on Sofi Tukker’s debut album Treehouse, which dropped earlier this year in April. The duo’s breakout hit, “Best Friend,” which debuted at the iPhone X unveiling is also featured on the album and features Nervo, The Knocks and Alisa Ueno. “Best Friend” notably topped Billboard’s Dance/Mix Show Airplay in January.
Sofi Tukker is touring to support Treehouse via their Treehouse World Tour, which includes a stop on in Norfolk, Virginia at The NorVa on Oct. 21 (Tickets). Watch the “Energia Parte 2” remix video above and stay tuned to AXS for Sofi Tukker updates.
