With her newest music video, “Mixtape Medley,” Thalia brings ’80s glamour back into the spotlight. Released on July 5, the video is an absolute treat for fans old and new, where Thalia relives the past while leaving her mark on the present.
The Mexican diva’s passion for the video is evident. In a post announcing the video’s launch, Thalia wrote, “I have an obsession with this music video,” — an obsession that will likely transfer to her fans. The music video is an artful mix of iconic songs like “Yo no me llamo Javier” by Los Toreros Muertos, “No Voy En Tren” by Charly García, “Obsesión” by Miguel Mateos, and “Mamá” by Los Amantes de Lola. Thalia fuses these classics in her distinctive style, offering viewers a nostalgic journey back to the ‘80s and ‘90s.
Directed by Enrique Vega, the video showcases Thalia at her retro best, complete with neon, denim, and sequins. Reflecting on her creative decision, Thalia told Remezcla, “I wanted to touch that vein of nostalgia for that generation that shaped me but also involve the new generation. In [the Mixtape Medley], there is the fusion of the entire ‘80s era because, at that time, we loved to make medleys. So we would run different songs into one long song.”
“Mixtape Medley” is a track from Thalia’s album, Thalia’s Mixtape, a collection of 11 songs released earlier this year (Apr. 28). The album, a tribute to the golden age of rock en español, features collaborations with music legends such as David Summers from Hombres G, Aterciopelados, and Roco from La Maldita Vecindad.
