Temporary Enemy of Reggaeton: Guelo Star
Before you get all mad at me, I do realize Guelo Star is always putting it down for dembow and is supposedly one of the best lyricists (if I knew spanish I could confirm this), but here he does a straight REGGAE track. In the world of Solo Para Reggaeton, this is a huge no no.
Adding insult to injury he posts this on his facebook page:
Google Translate tells us this means "FOR FANS OF "ROOTS REGGAE" AQUI EL NUEVO TEMA DE "Newton FEAT: Guelo Star REVIVE THE ROOTS OF" GANYA "JAJAJAJA! AQUI LES DEJO" GIRL Addicts' GARMENTS AND A Blunt Listen to him JAJAJAJA TRIP IN ONE LOVE Guelo Star"
ONE LOVE? Really... really? This goes against everything we stand for. This is two strikes, roots AND reggae as a genre, three if you add in One Love.
Guelo Star, we like and respect your contributions to reggaeton, but please keep them there. You are getting a free pass this time. If you have to stray from the genre, at least do american r&b covers like de la ghetto. We don't mind those.
