21 Chente Lyrics That Will Make Even The Most Cold-Hearted Person Cry

Throughout his multiple records, Chente created a mystical land full of tequila, mariachis, machismo and long lost love. Some of his lyrics are pretty kitschy but in a good way! He was able to establish an emotional rapport with millions of followers, many of which are Mexican migrants in the United States that have a nostalgic relationship with their home country.

Here’s 21 Chente lyrics (some of which are originally from the great José Alfredo Jiménez), that will make even the most macho person echar una lagrimita.

Ajúaaaaaaaaaa.

1. “Es mi niña bonita con su carita de rosa
Es mi niña bonita cada día mas preciosa
Es mi niña bonita echa de nardo y clavel
Es mi niña bonita es mi niña bonita
Cuanto la llego a querer” From “Mi Niña bonita”

This is a tender song about a girl who could be sung to a love interest or even to one’s sweet daughter. It is a bit uncanny to hear such tenderness coming from such a tough hombre.

2. “Por darle rienda suelta a mis antojos
Por no tener conciencia de la misma
Por eso ayer hice llorar sus ojos” From “La Derrota”

Oh man…. here Chente regrets having let his desires rule his life, perhaps booze and being unfaithful. He knows he lost his love because of his mischievous ways…

3. “Tengo el alma de bohemio y mexicano
Vagabundo y trovador
Para todos mi amistad llevo en la mano
Soy así de corazón” From “Como México No Hay Dos”

An ode to being Mexican… and always being friendly even if life throws curveballs at you.

4. “La barca en que me iré
lleva una cruz de olvido
lleva una cruz de amor
y en esa cruz sin ti
me moriré de astío” From “Cruz de Olvido”

Credit: Giphy. @am85

A very powerful song about how one’s old loves are just forgotten and disappear into thin air as life goes by.

5. “Estos celos me hacen daño me enloquecen
Jamás aprenderé a vivir sin ti
Lo peor es que muy tarde comprendí sí si
Contigo tenia todo y lo perdí
Contigo tenia todo y lo perdí” From “Estos Celos”

Oh man… more than one macho celoso will cry of self-pity after listening to this song about the consuming damage of jealousy.

6. “Vale más un buen amor, que mil costales de oro
Vale más un buen amor, por eso eres mi tesoro” From “Para
Siempre”

A very romantic song, ideal for a wedding anniversary: love is more valuable than gold. Carajo, otra maestro! 

7. “Te di todo de mi te di mis sueños
Yo siempre fui tu dios tu único dueño
Me diste tanto amor en esos años
Juramos ser amantes para siempre” From “Ahora Resulta”

Credit: R-6428895-1425134133-5650.jpeg.jpg Digital image. DIscogs

A tune about the pain caused by the unfulfilled promise of eternal love. Sometimes forever is not really para siempre.

8. “Tu sabes que soy parejo
Ya te lo dije una vez
Si yo no te causo penas
No quiero que me las des” From “Alma de Acero”

Credit: Giphy. @am85

This dude is kind of a pendejo: don’t mess with me and I don’t mess with you, he sings. Many machos will find themselves identified and cry for past mistakes.

9. “Hoy vives sufriendo nomas por mi culpa,
perdona lo injusto que fui sin querer,
creyendo que sólo con mucho cariño,
podría darte todo, maldita mi fe!” From “Anillo de Compromiso”

Credit: R-8216514-1457304441-6004.jpeg.jpg. Digital image. Discogs

Pain, dolor, ay dolor. A song about a guy who finally acknowledges the pain that he has caused for being a douche.

10. “Perdido en el vicio hundido
dolido del corazón
viviendo de una limosna
durmiendo en cualquier rincón
perdido por un dolido
nomas tomando licor” From “Borracho Sin Cantina”

Credit: Giphy. @am85

Anyone who has woken up with a cruda moral for drinking too much the night before will feel identified. The song is a bit troubling, however, as it takes drinking problems a bit too lightly.

11. “Como paloma que vaga errante
Sin rumbo fijo ni dirección
Navego y cruzo los ríos y mares
Sin paz ni abrigo, ni protección” From “Como Paloma Errante”

Credit: vicente-fernandez. Digital image. Tunefind

A song about the fact that we are born alone and remain alone and will probably die solos como perros callejeros….

12. “Perdóname… Si te he ofendido
Perdóname… Ten compasión” From “Amor de los dos”

Credit: vicente-fernandez-live-2013-smile-billboard-1548. Digital image. Billboard

A song that makes us imagine a mariachi kneeling and BEGGING for forgiveness in front of his puchunguita.

13. “conocí a tu esposo mientras caminaba
por el parquecito por que aquellas veces caminamos tanto” From “Conocí a tu esposo”

Credit: vicente-fernandez-llorando. Digital image. Fierce Mitu

Perhaps the most painful of the lot…. the author meets his old love’s current husband… precisely at the park where they used to promenade hand in hand.

14. “Por eso yo me alejo
no quiero ser tu estorbo”

Credit: Giphy. @am85

Super dramatic… a guy who basically says he doesn’t want to be a roadblock in the girl’s life anymore…. ouch.

15. “La única estrella que tiene mi cielo
se esta nublando
La nube negra de mi desgracia
Poquito a poco le va tapando” From “La Unica Estrella”

Credit: v2. Digital image. Blogspot

A beautiful metaphor of how bad luck chases you like a dark, gloomy cloud….. there is no escape.

16. “Nadie sabe cuanto tiempo
Traía cargando amarguras
Como recuerdo a mi viejo
Y sus tantas aventuras” From “El Señor de las Canas”

Credit: po3dqo12sc. Digital image. MamasLatinas

A song that anyone that has lost a father or abuelito will feel close too. Tears will flow as Chente describes cotton head viejos and wrinkles that only wisdom and the implacable passage of years can give.

17. “si me quieres
te regalo el mundo entero
si me olvidas
que me lleve la tristeza” From “Ponle Precio”

Credit: Giphy. @am85

Another dolorosa song about forgetting…. if the loved one forgets him then sadness will cover him like a cold blanket from hell.

18. “Con mi dolor
Causando pena voy rodando por ahí
No hay una frase de cariño para mí
Todos me miran con desprecio y con rencor” From “Urge”

Credit: vicente_bobblehead_vivamex-700×700. Digital image. Mex Shirts

Basically a song about a dude that everyone hates… there must be a reason.

19. “Acá entre Nos, quiero que sepas la verdad
No te he dejado de adorar, allá en mi triste soledad” From “Acá Entre Nos”

Credit: Giphy. @am85

The ultimate confession: the guy still loves his ex. He stills adores her, there in the dark corner of his solitude.

20. “De pronto como un loco muerto
Tu boca que viviendo cuerdo no podría besar
Y ansioso por tener tus besos” From “Demente”

Lovesickness and madness go hand in hand and Chente knows it!

21. “Chapala
eres paisajes para las almas enamoradas
enjambres de charalitos
pescados hoy en la madrugada” From “Chapala”

A nostalgic and sad song about the huge place in the heart that anyone’s hometown has, particularly if one is far away.

This Veracruz Taquería Made Marvel’s Thanos Twerk In Its Hilarious Ad

This Veracruz Taquería Made Marvel’s Thanos Twerk In Its Hilarious Ad

Takesabroso / Facebook

If you’ve ever visited Mexico, you know that copyright laws seem pretty lax. There are all kinds of Pokémon, Disney, and Cartoon Network inspired goods from piñatas to costumes in most mercados. The same can be said for tv ads. Takesabroso, a taquería in Veracruz, México, has jumped on the trend and created a stellar ad for their food using Thanos and his unknown twerking skills. Jorge Lajud produced a commercial for the taquería that artfully mashes up a scene of villain Thor from “Avengers: Endgame” and a montage of tacos and other Mexican food. Like any other art form, you have to see it to appreciate it.

The video has gone viral with over 5.5 million views thanks to it being posted on Twitter.

The commercial starts with a scene we’re all familiar with–the moment Thanos thinks he has all the Infinity Stones and offers a build-up to the moment he wipes out all of mankind. Spoiler: he doesn’t. Thanos says, “Yo soy inevitable,” snaps his fingers, and nothing happens.

Then, instead of the scene cutting to superhero Iron Man, we see Takesabroso owner, Luis Vazquez, dramatically saying, “Yo soy Takesabroso.”

Credit: Takesabroso / Facebook

He snaps his fingers and saves the day with a montage of Takesabroso’s menu items. In the bottom left-hand corner, supervillain Thanos seems to be happy with how terribly his plan failed and is twerking up against the lechón on screen. 

Yup. Thanos is twerking to cumbia.

Fans are here for it. As video rolls on burritos, tacos, and rotating meat, Thanos just keeps on dancing cumbia in the corner. “It’s the twerking thanos that really tied it all together,” commented one fan.

It’s official. Thanos is now Thaños and is clearly invited to every carne asada.

Credit: @troyareyes / Twitter

That little tilde on the “n” goes a very long way in making Thanos a true dancing Latino icon.

Some folks are worried that Takesabroso isn’t going to get away with using Marvel footage.

Credit: @Westside_LEE / Twitter

Personally, we think Thaños is far more appealing than his evil twin, Thanos. Mexicans have basically responded to this tweet with pure laughter. “Marvel lawyers trying to stop a Mexican restaurant from stealing intellectual property? Good luck,” tweets one fan.

This has prompted a whole other thread about different ways folks have seen Mexican restaurants “give precisely zero f***s.”

Credit: @urfriendktt / Twitter

One person seemingly well versed in copyright infringement tweeted their two cents, “Well it’s not illegal the clip used is not long enough to be considered plagiarism and its transformative enough to be fair use but Disney has sued for less and won lol.” 

Disney’s “Avengers: Endgame” was the final installment of the “Avengers” franchise and is the highest-grossing film of all time. The timing of the video is smart given that Disney released “Avengers: Endgame” on Blu-ray and DVD this week.

The rest of Latin America has also chimed in to share ways their countries don’t care about copyright.

Credit: @racampos / Twitter

“My fave: Harry Potter y el Orden del Taco,” read one reply. Nope, we’re voting for “Harry Potter y el trompo de pastor” for the win. 

“In Mexico City, we have a place named “Tacos Goku” or also there’s “Tacos Megaman” the copyright is like a joke for them,” one Mexicano tweeted. Another said he ” remembered a tortilleria called “El Thor-tillero” on León, near the bus station (central camionera).”

This isn’t the first time Takesabroso has ventured into hilarious advertisements…

Credit: @jorgelajudm / Twitter 

Takesabroso’s video editor in resident, Jorge Lajud, recast the restaurant owner in a scene from Venom and then had his form be overlayed by a Ricardo Milos dancing. Note the floating images of tacos and burgers floating around him. It’s pretty clear Vazquez is also absolutely delighted by these commercials.

Takesabroso has welcomed the wide response from folks and even dedicated a Facebook post to its fans. “Takesabroso not only seeks to bring flavor to your life, but it also seeks to bring joy to your heart,” Vazquez posted. “This meme is viral, thanks to all.”

The woman responsible for gifting the video to Twitter, which took it viral, is using her platform to promote non-profit RAICES Texas.

Credit: @goingonajournie / Twitter

The Refugee Aid Project, commonly known as RAICES, is the largest immigration legal services provider in Texas. It’s staffed with 130 attorneys, legal assistants and support staff whose sole job is to offer legal representation to immigrants at risk from America’s current immigration policies. In 2017, they closed 51,000 cases at no cost to the client.

The Bernie Campaign Teamed Up With Cardi B To Talk About Police Brutality, DREAMers And Raising Wages

@BernieSanders / Twitter

Vermont Senator and Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and rapper Cardi B have been teasing their on-screen discussion on issues ranging from police brutality to canceling student debt for a few weeks now. Finally, the Sanders campaign published the video in all its nearly ten minutes of glory.

The two met at Detroit’s TEN nail bar, a deluxe nail salon founded and operated by two women of color. Cardi B came prepared with a list of questions that her own followers have brought up with her. In essence, Cardi B served as a representative of her fans’ political interests and brought them to a Presidential candidate to see if he would be the guy to officially represent their needs in the nation’s most meaningful capacity–as POTUS 2020.

Six weeks ago, Cardi asked her fans what they would want to hear Bernie Sanders discuss.

Credit: @BernieSanders / Twitter

On July 2, the rapper shared a video to Instagram telling her followers that her number one question to Bernie Sanders is about how to end police brutality in this country. “What would you like to ask? what change would you like to see in your community and in the USA 🇺🇸?” she posted. “2020 is getting very close let’s get familiar with who is running and how they can change the country! Put your questions down below and your questions may be answered very soon.”

Nobody expected she was actually going to sit down with Bernie Sanders and represent the Bardi Gang’s political issues.

Hilariously, Sanders wiggled his fingers alongside Cardi B’s as he told us that, “Cardi B’s nails are juuuust a little different than mine. Our views on the issues are pretty similar.” 

Cardi B absolutely nailed it as an interviewer. She steered the conversation and truly represented her followers’ interests. She opened the video to remind everyone that, “A couple of weeks ago, I asked my followers what types of questions would you want to ask a Democratic candidate. Let’s go baby.” Here are the takeaways.

Number one: Cardi and Bernie’s shared goal is getting Trump out of office.

“You know what I’m trying to do is I’m trying to advocate the youth in my community because I feel like there’s a serious problem right now in America,” Cardi opens. “We have this bully as a President and the only way to take him out is somebody winning.”

“We’ve got to get rid of Donald Trump, obviously. Because Donald Trump is an overt racist. He’s just way out there.”

The first question on Cardi’s mind is putting an end to police brutality in America. Bernie has a three-pronged plan.

Cardi B got vulnerable and talked about the mental effects of what it’s like to “constantly see on social media police brutality against black men and against minorities. What are we going to do to change that, because that is discouraging our people? We constantly see our men getting killed every day, and it seems like nobody cares.”

Sanders wants to end the militarization of police departments, which he sees as a form of intimidation.

To address police brutality, he wants the Department of Justice to investigate every police killing to ensure accountability and prevent local police departments from covering up crimes. He also wants to federally obligate police departments to “look like the community they serve” and “not like an oppressive army.” Sanders related to the “disgust” of seeing 1 in 4 young black men in the criminal justice system. His solution to that specific issue is to invest in free education instead of investing in prisons and incarceration. 

During his first week as President, Sanders will reinstate the executive order that gave protections to DREAMers, and he wants to extend those protections to their parents.

Credit: @BernieSanders / Twitter

Cardi had recalled meeting a fan who enrolled for protections under DACA and is now facing deportation back to Mexico–a place that he has no living memory of ever knowing. Bernie wants the 1.8 million young people who qualify for DACA to experience the freedoms of this country. When he said he wants to expand that program to their parents, Cardi did a little jiggle and let out a “Yeahhh!”

Bernie is going to raise taxes to allow free healthcare and education, but it will be cheaper on a day to day for Americans.

Credit: @BernieSanders / Twitter

“People are afraid to pay more taxes than they’re already paying,” Cardi rightly stated. Bernie’s plan to offer free health care for all will ultimately be cheaper for the overwhelming majority of people than paying for premiums, deductibles, and copayments.

Cardi B will never forget how hard it was to make a living wage before she found fame.

Credit: @BernieSanders / Twitter

Cardi B brought up how “certain people like to brag” about how there are more jobs in America, but she’s questioning the quality of these jobs. Why are her followers having to work two or three jobs to survive? Bernie wants to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour. 

By placing a modest tax on Wall Street, Sanders plans to cancel student debt.

Credit: @BernieSanders / Twitter

Forty-five million Americans are living with student debt. Sanders knows that those of us in our 20s and 30s were told that we had to go to college to get a good job. Where the good jobs at? Our generation is far less likely to own homes and make financial progress in our lives. For the first time, our generation is worse off than the generation before it. 

Sanders has a message to Cardi B’s followers: “Trump doesn’t want people of color to be participating in the political process.”

“Participate in the political process,” he tells POC. You can spend five minutes to register to vote here.
