Now, Yatra’s tour will continue through to December. He will wrap up the US leg next week in Boston (October 8), before heading on to Ecuador, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua and closing the dates in the Dominican Republic on December 10. You can find full tour details and tickets on Yatra’s official website.

Meanwhile, earlier this year, Yatra teamed up with John Legend for a special remix of “Tacones Rojos.” “John is miraculously talented, and musically he can go anywhere. He’s someone I admire, and vocal-wise, it’s very intriguing to see how he’s going to sound in a song like this because of his vocal capacity,” Yatra told Billboard about the collaboration.

“When you have a song you love so much, you want to give it to someone who has a stroke of genius like John has and who will keep the essence instead of just a translation.”
