11 Things that Make Absolutely No Sense in the Estefan’s Song “We’re All Mexican”

Emilio and Gloria Estefan have joined the #Hispandering bandwagon by producing the song “We’re All Mexican” as a response to Donald Trump “anti-Mexican” rants. Good idea, right? Maybe they had the best intentions and maybe the missed the boat because they’re Cuban, but the video is full of stereotypes and things that just don’t make sense. Here’s a countdown of the 11 most offensive images in the video…

11. Apparently all Latinos live in California, Texas, and Florida.

Wrong. What about the large groups of Latinos living in New Orleans, New York, and Chicago? And what the hell happened to New Mexico?

10. It’s 2015, Mexican women don’t walk around wearing vestidos de adelita.

We wear regular clothes just like everyone else. Jeans, shorts and dresses that don’t have ribbon on them.

9. Did mariachi become outfits everyday wear?

No.

You do know that not every Mexican party is filled with waving ponchos and Aztec men running around with knives, right?

7. FYI, there’s more to Mexican legacy than guacamole.

Like color TV invented by Guillermo Gonzalez Camarena when he was 23. As well as Instabook used to print books faster and for a fraction of the cost. Are you taking notes, Emilio?

6. Can we talk about their flawed background checks?

It’s probably best not to include someone who was accused of sexual, physical, and emotional harassment in a music video about uniting all Latinos. Let’s not give Trump anymore material.

5. We’re up to here with the Mexican jumping bean references.

?”Sit back and have some beans / Amigo don’t kill the American Dream.”?

Even the lyrics are ridiculous!

4. And we’re fed up with the sombreros. Make it stop.

3. And here’s Whoopi Goldberg…for no reason at all.

If you needed to add someone from The View, why not Rosie Perez? It would at least connect the dots.

2. WTF is Kathy Griffin even doing here?

Did she get lost or something? Wait. It’s because of the hat.

1. Just because you’re Cuban Emilio and Gloria, it doesn’t mean this is OK.

Despite popular belief, Chihuahuas are not the official animal of Mexico. It’s actually the Golden Eagle, which you can see displayed right smack in the center of the flag.

Mariah Gives A Little More ‘Perreito’ This Quarantine

Mariah Gives A Little More ‘Perreito’ This Quarantine

The voice behind “Perreito,” Mariah Angeliq, gives an inside scoop on what she has coming up in her next projects and what she’s doing at home during the quarantine.

Mariah Angelique Pérez, known in the music industry as Mariah Angeliq, is a US-based reggaeton and trap artist that has hustled to quickly place herself at the top of the urban music genre.

The 20-year-old artist already has one hit single under her belt, “Perreito,” which has made everyone rush to the dance floor. Latido music interviewed the artist, who was born in Miami, to talk about what she’s up to during quarantine. She also shared another secret that you’re about to find out. 😉

Q: Mariah, you’re only 20 years old yet you have a huge career in the industry…How did this happen?

A: When you’re really young, sometimes people don’t pay much attention to you. The music industry is complicated, nonetheless, I let my music speak for itself.

Q: You ran away from home and your musical career began, what was that experience like?

A: Haha, it was hard but I had to do it. My mom was very overprotective with me and she didn’t let me do what I wanted, but I knew I had the talent to make it, to grow in music if that’s what I decided to do. When I took that risk was when I met Nelly, El Arma Secreta, and that’s when I realized that you have to risk it all to be who you really want to be.

Q: How did you become so close to El Arma Secreta?

A: I met Nelly in the studio, back when I only sang in English. He saw something in me that he liked, so we started working together and Nelly said something like, “we have to have her sing in Spanish!” and that was that.

Q: How have you been dealing with the quarantine and everything surrounding COVID-19?

A: I always try to look on the bright side of things. I’ve written a lot of songs during quarantine, I’ve been concentrating on myself, my career, and the good that can come from this moment.

Q: Has the quarantine affected any plans?

A: Yes, I think for all artists. 2020 is the year when I was most active in concerts and events and well, everything seems to be on pause for the moment. To give you some perspective, I opened up Premio Lo Nuestro and that was a huge step in my career and as soon as this is over I’ll be back for more.

Q: You’ve had a few releases these last few months, can we expect more music from Mariah as an antivirus?

A: Yes, I’ve had a few releases, canciones cabronas. Not too long ago I released “Y Que Paso?” beside Brray and the track goes hard and as for quarantine, you’re going to see a lot more. I have a whole lineup of songs for you to enjoy at home right now, even some big collaborations with Ñengo Flow and Lyanno, están cabronas.

Chosen by Pandora as one of their “Latino Artists to Follow in 2020,” Mariah Angeliq has managed to be seen in the urban music scene as a promising artist in the genre, and as she mentioned, there’s even more to come this quarantine.

Nothing left to do now but prepare ourselves and enjoy a little “Perreito” during quarantine.

The Music Industry Has Stepped Up As The Pandemic’s Most Generous Donor

The Music Industry Has Stepped Up As The Pandemic’s Most Generous Donor

The music industry has been among the most affected by COVID-19, but, as businessman Stephen Brooks says, it has responded with great “generosity.”

Even though the growth in revenue in the music industry doesn’t compare with that of audiovisual productions or video games, it has been the industry that has demonstrated the most altruism during the global COVID-19 crisis.

“Everyone from the artists to the businesses have been hit hard by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Stephen Brooks, creator of the online music channel Latido Music, told Efe.

Nonetheless, he affirms that “they have demonstrated such generosity that brings honor to our art. I’ve never been more proud to belong to the global music family.”

This pride is due to the response of artists towards the crisis, as they were among the first entertainment figures to support the creation of funds to help the working class, provide concerts on social media, and give donations to help fight the pandemic.

Ricky Martin was among the first to come forward and, through his Instagram, has insisted to his followers the importance of staying home and donating to foundations that are helping to fight the virus.

The virtual concert phenomenon began with Juanes and Alejandro Sanz, whose approach was then followed by Panamanian artist Sech and Jorge Drexler, from Uruguay, who hoped to bring their music to the homes of their fans. Eventually, businesses both small and large and TV channels followed their lead.

Anglo-Saxon artists have also started their own initiatives. Rihanna announced that she had donated five million dollars through her Clara Lionel Foundation, “for food banks in high-risk communities and elderly citizens in the US, as well as the purchase of tests and materials to help the sick in Haiti and Malawi.”

Streaming platforms have also opened up their wallets, donating to funds destined to help workers in the industry who, for the most part, worked for them. Spotify donated 10 million dollars and launched an initiative that would match the donations from their listeners.

The data collected from reports run by companies like Nielsen and Billboard indicate that the growth in music has remained stable in comparison to other sectors of the entertainment business, which have been struggling. “Some have even declined. There are indicators that point to a slight user decline in music platforms and on Youtube.” 

Even then, the spirit of musicians doesn’t let up and every day they keep announcing new events on social media and organizations in need of support to help fight the pandemic.
