Fellow musicians and fans all over the world are devastated about “Te Boté” producer Flow La Movie’s untimely death after being involved in a plane crash Wednesday in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Heartbreakingly, the crash also killed the Puerto Rican producer’s partner of seven years Debbie Von Marie Jiménez Garcia, 31, the couple’s 4-year-old son Jayden Hernandez, family and friends Kellyan Hernández Peña, Yeilianys Jeishlimar Meléndez Jiménez and Jassiel Yabdiel Silva, and Veronica Estrella, and crew members Luis Alberto Eljuri and Víctor Emilio Herrera.

So what exactly happened? The Gulfstream IV private jet initially departed from La Isabela International Airport in Dominican Republic and was headed towards Miami, but had to make an emergency landing almost immediately after take off. As they attempted to land, the plane tragically crashed at Las Americas International Airport in Santo Domingo. After the crash, the Santo Domingo airport was shut down, leading to countless flight cancellations. As expected, the shocking news devastated family, friends, fans, and the music community alike.

People all over the world are equal parts shattered and stunned by the news, especially considering that the producer was at an all-time career high, yet still always put his beloved family first.

When he wasn’t spending time with his beloved Debbie, or his “Barbie” like he once called her, and his kids, Flow could be found in the music studio giving his songs his all. He produced reggaeton classic and Billboard #1 song “Te Boté” by Bad Bunny, Nicky Jam, and Ozuna, as well as major hits like “La Jeepeta” by Nio Garcia, Brray and Juanka, and “AM” by Nio Garcia, J Balvin and Bad Bunny. He also started a record label under his own name, signing artists like Nio Garcia, Xound, and Casper Magico. The producer’s songs hit billions of streams combined, and he constantly collaborated with major Latino artists. 

As the music community reacts to Flow La Movie’s passing, countless singers and rappers are expressing their devastation. J Balvin shared a photo of him and Flow laughing with friends, writing, “José Angel thank you for your positive vibes always!! Rest in peace,” generating thousands of heartbroken comments. Meanwhile, reggaeton singer Jay Wheeler tweeted, “rest in peace flow la movie 😔,” and Don Omar shared an Instagram post writing, “You and your family’s passing is tragic.

May God grant them supernatural peace, amén.” Longtime friend and collaborator producer Raphy Pina, founder of Pina Records, shared his sadness on Instagram: “My God, feeling so much pain.
