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.

“Mayans MC” Cast Is Slowly Filling Up With Several Amazing Actors. Here’s A Quick Look

When “Sons Of Anarachy” creators announced last May that FX had green-lit a Mayan motorcycle club spinoff, tentatively titled “Mayans MC,” fans were given only limited details to fill their “SOA” appetites. Over the last few weeks, however, the show’s producers have dropped some choice morsels of information. We now know that the show will pick up where “SOA” left off, and that it will feature some solid Latino representation.

Legendary actor Edward James Olmos steps in as EZ Reyes’ father, Felipe Reyes.

On “Mayans MC,” Olmos will play an OG gang member who has been beaten down by years of hard living, Deadline reports. From “Blade Runner” to “Stand And Deliver” and “Selena” Olmos easily has the most storied career of the actors currently announced for the show.

Emmy-nominated Richard Cabral plays Johnny “El Coco” Cruz.

According to Deadline, Cabral’s character is a bit of a wild card. “El Cuco” was discharged from the military because he was deemed mentally unfit. Why? He shot a cigar out of his commanding officer’s mouth. Sounds like a perfect match for the Mayans motorcycle club. Cabral also appears regularly on Fox’s “Lethal Weapon” and “American Crime.”

John Ortiz puts his leadership skills to the test as Esai “Taino” Osorio.

Screen Rant reports that Ortiz’s character has a deep connection to the Mayans. He lives with his cousin Marcus Alvarez (president of the Oakland area Mayans) and serves as the President to their San Padres Charter. This role is another feather in the cap of Ortiz, who has scored roles in both “Fast & Furious” and “Kong: Skull Island.”

Clayton Cardenas takes on the role of Angel Reyes, the brother of main character Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes.

Cardenas joins the Mayans MC Santo Padre charter as a full patch member. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Cardenas’ character lives in the shadows of both his brother “EZ” and the legacy of his family. Like Richard Cabral, Cardenas has appeared several times on “American Crime.”

Lastly, J.D. Pardo has been cast as the lead role of Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes.

As Deadline reports, “EZ” is unwittingly pulled into the world of cartel violence, where he is courted by the Mayans as a potential member. He struggles with his thirst for vengeance and his desire to have the respect of the women closest to him. JD has appeared along side Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in “Snitch” and he’s shown off his talents as Jesus in the Emmy-nominated show, “East Los High.”

Variety reports that filming for Mayans MC begins in March.
