But there's actually more to this story: in an interview with People en Español, Fran explained that Natti Natasha and Raphy were actually the inspiration behind his track.
"When I discovered how beautiful their relationship is, how much they support one another professionally and the feeling there is between them, it was inspiring," he said. "It was a great surprise to me when Raphy came to me and said, 'I really identified with 'Inédito'.'"
After hearing that Raphy liked his new song, Fran revealed to him that he and his girlfriend had actually been the inspiration behind the catchy tune, and invited them to appear in the music video.
"'Inédito' is you two," he told the music manager. "We hugged. I told my family what was happening and they couldn't believe it. It seemed like fate. It was a magical connection."
