When I started my career grammys did not exist, then it can be said that this award is wonderful. I don’t want to detract from any of them, because each award is very important at the time.

“I made a response to a song by Bad Bunny and I made one for him that is on YouTube, in fact I made a video and a response to that song that he spoke with so much heartbreak; I told him, let’s talk about love and I played the same tune and I answered him. I have been a defender of love always with a simple language with real stories that people can feel identified with. At the moment we are absolutely full of urban music, where there are many songs with a very strong language. Of course there are many songs of urban music that are very beautiful, we cannot deny that when we go to a married couple at a party, we ourselves dance to those songs, because they have a happy rhythm. We thought that reggaeton was going to be two or three years old, and it’s already been 10”, he pointed out.
The Chilean artist also gave her opinion on the reggaeton lyrics.
“There are many lyrics that denigrate women, that talk about things that are not poetry, it is not to unconsciously put that into the heads of youth. For example, it is not that one does not want to talk about the subject, but the way in which it is spoken and it can be cruder, I do not agree with that, but I do agree with the actions that have been done in duets with reggaeton people more classic like Reik. I like reggaeton that talks about love, but there are other things that I absolutely do not share, “she concluded.
