Ricky Martin The Best Thing

Ricky Martin celebrates the theme of equality in the music video for his single, “The Best Thing About Me is You”/”Lo Mejor De Mi Vida Eres Tu”. Martin performs with an “equals” symbol on his chest, surrounded by a diverse cast of models and a series of hand-drawn, calligraphic text, written and painted in both Spanish and English.
