Bad Bunny, J Balvin and Reggaeton Fans React To Aleks Syntek’s Comments On The Genre

Mexican pop singer Aleks Syntek (you might remember him from that mid-2000s track “Duele el Amor”) is causing a stir once again for his comments about reggaeton and urban music. This time reggaeton stars and fans are not letting his comments slide.

Aleks Syntek posted a follow-up to the saga, and it’s clearly a dig at reggaeton artists.

“Even among poets and crazies there are codes of ethics, and if you use vulgarity and misogyny as the hook for success without thinking about the common good, then you don’t deserve respect.”

The string of uploads started with an Instagram story about his displeasure of hearing reggaeton during the day.

Syntek was having breakfast at the airport and was not okay with seeing the song’s accompanying music video on during daylight hours.

Please, keep the pornographic club music for the club, not for public spaces at 10 a.m. My children will thank you.”

Reggaeton artists such as J Balvin, Bad Bunny, and Arcangel,  as well as fans of the genre, took to social media to shut down the shade.

J Balvin responded to the critiques by tagging Syntek on his Instagram Story, saying Syntek needed a hug.

Bad Bunny also became a part of the conversation by posting a video with a young fan rapping alongside him at a concert.

He captioned the post, “A good father isn’t one who prohibits his children from listening to today’s music. A good father is one who, regardless of what music his son listens to, educates him to be a good person. Who has the heart to deny this moment to this kid?”

In a now-deleted Instagram post, Arcangel said he is a Syntek fan but asked what’s bugging the pop artist so much.

His lengthy post said through this genre, many families are living their dreams. Arcangel continued by saying reggaeton artists bring joy to the general public and their own families. He added that many artists come from a place where society expects them to become criminals.

He ended the post by saying Syntek’s music may be good, but due to his constant attacks on the reggaeton genre and culture, he can see that Syntek is a “trash human being.”

Some trap and reggaeton fans took to Twitter and Instagram as well to express their discontent with Syntek’s comments.

That is almost as bad as telling someone that you are disappointed in them.

Some were telling him to delete and chill.

Iconic.

One user reminded Syntek of the genre’s roots.

The user also pointed out that his fight was also a fight against the music of the African diaspora, and that reggaeton’s roots came from youth who felt marginalized on the fringes of society.

Following the backlash from fans and artists, Syntek posted follow-up posts to clarify his comments.

“I’m simply asking that the content of that entertainment be regulated, which is not suitable for children in public places and is in appropriate at times,” Syntek wrote. “My suggestion was directed at the people responsible, not the people creating the music.”

This has not been the first time Syntek has criticized reggaeton. In an interview last year, he called the genre pornographic music with lyrics about misogyny and that that “music comes from apes.”
