It is set to “Señorita’s” tune and also includes a clip of Putin playing the piano.
The clip aired on the Russian “60 Minutes” program on the country’s Channel 1. It only includes the first two verses of the song, whose lyrics include, “I love it when you call me Señorita/ I wish I could pretend I didn’t need ya/ But every touch is ooh-la-la-la/ It’s true la-la-la/ Ooh I should be running/ Ooh you keep me coming/ For ya,” according to a song lyrics website.
Trump this week promoted Putin at the Group of Seven (G-7) summit in France, saying at a press conference that he would “certainly” invite Putin to next year’s summit in the U.S. He reportedly received pushback from other leaders over the suggestion. Russia was expelled from the group in 2014 over its annexation of Crimea.
The president also suggested he might host the next G-7 meeting at his Trump National Doral Miami resort in Florida. Miami was referenced in both the Cabello-Mendes hit and the farcical Russian TV clip.
The 60 Minutes panel talked about the press conference and the host called the edited video “absolutely beautiful” according to Newsweek.
