This Music Video Battles Against A Latino Tradition That Almost Every Woman Has To Deal With
Becky G’s single, “Todo Cambio,” shows us a part of the Latino culture that many families tend to overemphasize, and that is: marriage. The older you get, the more your family members seem to bring it up in conversations – from little comments like, “y el novio?” to “with that attitude you’re never going to get married.” It’s almost as if you should feel guilty for being single. But Becky G is reminding us that self-love comes first.
Here are three messages in Becky G’s track “Todo Cambio”:
1. Never settle for anything if you’re not truly happy.
In many families being single when you’re in your twenties is often looked down upon because it goes against tradition and can be considered selfish. (How dare you not give your mom grandchildren when you’re juggling school a career and many other things, right?! ?) And that is exactly what this music video is challenging.
Becky G accepts her boyfriend’s because she sees how ecstatic her parents are when her boyfriend pops the question.
2. Don’t be afraid to go against your family’s wishes and expectations, even if it disappoints them.
Even in real life Becky G knows the importance of family. We see how close she is with her family and how much they mean to her.
Still in this video, she messages the importance of making yourself happy before anything else – even if it means not following the exact plans your family had for you.
3. Just do you, boo. ?
Remember that it’s fine to date around, have fun, follow your passion, and not feel obligated to settling down and getting married.
Yes, it might come as a huge culture shock to your family, but if they want you to be happy, they will support you.
