Singer Melina Leon launched a merengue version of the viral theme of Shakira in collaboration with the Argentine producer BZRP.
“This version in meringue that I named ‘For’ guys like you’, started out as a vacilón in the studio, but we loved the result. Those who know my career know that many of my songs are aimed at empowering women and I loved this version, which has been a worldwide trend, because of the message and the strength it gives to all the women who have experienced a toxic relationship. Women no longer cry, women dance and enjoy. This version is perfect for that,” Melina said in written statements.
“Mujeres liberadas”, “Con los pies sobre la tierra” and “Baño de Luna” are some of the albums that Melina has released.
León has been characterized for being a strong voice in favor of women, embodying that philosophy in topics such as Mujeres liberadas and Cuando una mujer, to name a few.
BZRP Music Session #53, by BZRP with the Colombian, has managed to break several records and set others.
For example, it dethroned Despacito, by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, as the most viewed music video on YouTube, surpassing 60 million views in 24 hours. Two weeks after its premiere, it currently exceeds 215 million views.
In the theme of three minutes and 32 seconds, Shakira takes its toll on Gerard Piqué, father of her children Milan and Sasha, in the midst of their breakup, after 12 years of relationship and rumors of the ex-soccer player’s infidelity with his current partner, Clara Chía, 23 years old.
“I understood that it is not my fault that they criticize you, I only make music, sorry that you get salty (pause) pique”. To which he adds: “He has the name of a good person, clearly it is not what it sounds like. She has the name of a good person, clearly she is the same as you”, he is heard alluding to Chía, before establishing “I am worth two out of 22”.
In addition to reaching the top spots in various markets, including Spotify’s Global Top 50, several choreographies have also gone viral on platforms such as Tiktok.
