Review

  • The song tells the story of a woman who has moved on from a bad relationship and found a new love that treats her better. She sings about how her ex was wrong when he said that she would never find someone like him, and how she enjoys her life with her current partner. She also mentions how she used to feel insecure and unhappy, but now she feels pretty and confident. The song is a celebration of her self-esteem and happiness.

  • The song makes me feel happy and empowered, as it shows how the woman has overcome a toxic situation and found her true worth. I think the artist weaves the story in a catchy and upbeat way, using cumbia and tex-mex influences to create a fun and danceable rhythm. She also uses references to pop culture, such as Betty la Fea (a famous Colombian telenovela) and Selena Quintanilla (a legendary tejano singer), to connect with her audience and express her identity.

  • The song does not include explicit themes, but it does imply some sexual innuendos, such as when she says “¿Pa’ qué le digo que no? Si me lo hace mejor” (Why should I say no? If he does it better). It is a fun song, not a sad one, as it focuses on the positive aspects of her current relationship and how she has grown as a person.

  • The song relates to the YouTube video in several ways. The video shows Karol G performing the song on a pink stage that floats on a heart-shaped lake, surrounded by musicians and dancers. The video reflects the romantic and playful mood of the song, as well as its cumbia and tex-mex influences. The video also pays homage to Selena Quintanilla, as Karol G wears a t-shirt with her image and recreates some of her iconic dance moves.
