Residente’s New Video Gleefully Skewers Perreo Carnality

Residente’s New Video Gleefully Skewers Perreo Carnality

René Pérez Joglar began quarantine raising the weighty issue of Latin American poverty with a re-release of Calle 13’s 2010 song “Latinoamérica.” But like so many of us, as the lockdown extends into its fifth month, Residente has gone horny on main, in between works of protest and beer brand launches.

Consider the evidence: his wistful May single “Antes Que El Mundo Se Acabe” featured well over seven minutes of heaven delivered by a world of sensual couples, including Bad Bunny and his partner Gabriela Berlingeri. Residente’s latest offering “Hoy,” a song one can’t help imagining powerfully vibrating a wall of car dealership speakers, reimagines its reggaetón as a verb. In fact, a witchy, viral verb that graphically possesses even the club’s casual passers-by.

Don’t pretend like you can’t relate to the “Hoy” video’s skewing of dance floor courtship. The clip shows its protagonists elementally spurred to launch themselves onto their partner with the lewdest, most gratuitous comedy. Residente directed himself and pops up as the video’s incredulous bartender—its only character who is immune to the music’s pull. Conspiracy theory: he’s definitely playing himself, the artist who made the spell that is “Hoy.” The other culprit, a goofy DJ who seems to unwittingly release the lust-invoking auditory, certainly doesn’t seem to have the focus to have woven the spell.

Or perhaps this obvious lack of attribution of alchemy is intentional—Residente has been around long enough to know that it’s the people who bring the perreo intenso to reggaetón, and not the other way around.

Don Francisco Back To Univisión? Sources Assure Iconic Chilean Presenter Might Return With A Tourism TV Show

Don Francisco Back To Univisión? Sources Assure Iconic Chilean Presenter Might Return With A Tourism TV Show

Five years have passed since the iconic Chilean presenter Mario Luis Kreutzberger Blumenfeld better known by his stage name as Don Francisco, said goodbye to the Hispanic network Univisión and farewell the longest-running program in history, Sábado Gigante, to try his luck on Telemundo with a new show.

Don Francisco, one of the most recognized and successful television presenters in Latin America, would allegedly be returning to what was his home for 50 years. According to the YouTube channel Chisme no like, Kreutzberger Blumenfeld could premiere a new program with a different format than the one that the audience relates to the presenter.

“Señores si yo les digo que Don Francisco ¡regresa a Univisión!,” said the Chisme no like host. “¡Ave María, tiembla la industria!.”

According to this digital show, the new format will not be a talk show or an interview program, but rather a proposal for tourism that was carried out in some Chilean regions, from 2013 to 2017.
