Netflix recently purchased and streamed a Colombian telenovela, The Queen of Flow (or La Reina del Flow) and we’re all screaming. It has all the parts of the telenovelas we were raised to love with Netflix-level production. The novela premiered at No. 1 on Colombia’s Caracol Channel back in June and resonated with viewers who could relate to the everyday violence de Medellín and the salvation that music can offer.
If you’re a Spanglish speaker, you’ll appreciate the English subtitles to get the full impact of the drama. Carolina Ramírez stars as Yeimy Montoya, an undercover DEA agent back for revenge on the man who first put her in prison 17 years ago.
