Iglesias and Scherzinger performed “Heartbeat” at the Granaries in Floriana, Malta, during their appearance at the Isle of MTV festival in 2014. It seems MTV can’t get enough of Iglesias, as the 2014 event was his third appearance at the festival, following his appearances in 2007 and 2008. And with passionate performances like “Heartbeat”, there’s no doubt why MTV kept asking him to come back.

Fans loved to hear the duet, and added comments below the video such as “My favourite duet of all time. I can’t stop watching it. They are so adorable together. Just enough playing off each other.” and “The vocals and the chemistry in this one are beautiful. You can’t find these emotions in other videos. This one hits different.” It seems that duets are a specialty for Iglesias, as he also had a big hit on YouTube with his live take on “Tired of Being Sorry” with French songstress Nâdiya.

Iglesias released “Heartbeat” on June 8, 2010, as the third single from his ninth studio album, Euphoria. The Spanish star co-wrote the song with Jamie Scott and Mark Taylor, and performed it in the studio with Scherzinger.
