We couldn’t help ourselves. There are just too many jams where we either take issue with the artists’ politics or past, or where the lyrics are too sexist not to acknowledge…pero they’re bangers tho (sorry/not sorry)! So we’re bringing you otro problematic faves episode, where we deconstruct some of our favorite artists and acknowledge that everyone makes mistakes–some bigger than others.
Featuring music by Vicente Fernandez, Alexis y Fido, Daddy Yankee, Pitbull, Don Miguelo and Prince Royce.
