It’s an understatement to say I’m a big fan of Latin music and dance. I spend the large part of my free time dancing salsa, and sometimes I put my Spotify on private session because no one needs to know I listen to Marco Antonio Solis radio all day at work. So when Romeo came out with a new bachata single last summer, I was eager to listen to it, but ended up having a few thoughts about it.
Omg yes Romeo has a new single! It’s sure to be sexy as hell! Yeah!
Yup we are in ‘Los Infieles’ territory again. Hot story about a steamy affair. Can’t say I’m not into it.
“I don’t care about your man”, “te robo un besito“, etc etc. I mean it’s not really a Romeo song without that right.
La regla es que goces…oh it’s all about me huh, okay I see you Romeo, always putting the lady first.
Si te falto el respeto y luego culpo al alcohol
Si levanto tu falda me darias el derecho
Wait no what??
Relajate, que este martini calmara tu timidez
WTF THIS IS DATE RAPE
ROMEO YOU MADE A SONG ABOUT DATE RAPE
THIS IS NO LONGER UNA PROPUESTA INDECENTE IT IS LEGIT UNA PROPUESTA ILEGAL
[NOTE: Try as I might to hate this song for its questionable ethics and arguably being on the wrong side of the rape culture debate, it’s admittedly still on my running playlist and I won’t pretend I don’t get down to it in the club…#bachateraproblems]
