On the same day that Puerto Rico announced it would no longer defend its ban on gay marriage, Ricky Martin, one of the island's most famous exports, released a music video featuring a married gay couple.

On Friday, Martin applauded the government's decision.

“Today is a great day for my island, my heart beats fast in my chest. How proud I am to live in a country of equality. I love you Puerto Rico,” he wrote in Spanish.

Disparo al Corazon (Shot to the Heart) from Martin's recently released Spanish language album A Quien Quiera Escuchar (To Those Who Want to Listen) is a ballad about about finding love at an unlikely moment. In its music video, Martin, dressed in black, stands before a mirror and confesses that before finding his love he was not a saint. Reflected back in the mirror are various couples, including two recently married men. (The video is embedded on this on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

“It is a very emotional video where I present different realities manifested as love,” Martin is quoted as saying.
