When the word tiraera is mentioned, the song that rapper Residente dedicated to reggaeton star J Balvin immediately comes to mind. From Bizarrap's home studio in Buenos Aires, the Puerto Rican sent harsh accusations against the Colombian singer, with whom he had tough disputes in the past.
Now it was Sebastián Yatra's turn, who composed his own tiraera. In this case, it is a version of love, away from the resentment and rage that filled the composition of Residente. However, he was not exempt from controversy: he accused Camilo and Rauw Alejandro of not being truly in love with their partners.
The matter began two days earlier, when a video ran through social networks in which the young Colombian singer appeared eating with several people. During the talk, he commented that “Neither Camilo nor Rauw are in love. I have realized it from the years that I have been working in the industry.”
The furor was immediately unleashed on social networks and media outlets around the world. Probably, the couples of Rosalía and Evaluna Montaner didn’t like that comment at all. In fact, Camilo shows off in recent times his love for his wife and his newborn son, as he probed in his latest single “Pegao”. In the video clip he appears dancing effusively with his partner Evaluna.
After the storm unleashed, Sebastián Yatra continued adding fuel to the fire. On his Instagram profile, he posted a video with a short preview of a future song. In the images you can see a twitter search, with the cascade of negative comments that his words generated. In the text, he wrote: "Sorry Rauw Alejandro and Camilo, she is a tyrant of love, I love you."
In the few seconds of the song advanced, he can be heard singing “tell your dad that you are moving to Medallo with me, tell your mom that this is serious that we are not friends. Neither Camilo nor Rauw are so in love, I dream of having many lives, and spend them by your side, in love”. The love tiraera will be his next single, after the recent collaborations published with Antonio Orozco and Aitana.
The controversy happened when Yatra was in Buenos Aires, where he went to give a surprise concert in the subway of the Argentinian capital. There he met the famous presenter Susana Díaz, and both dressed up to avoid being recognized. They recorded a special show that soon will be broadcasted on television.
Although some followers were initially outraged, after posting his clarification on Instagram, most of them were amused. After all, it is a publicity strategy to generate noise and promote his new song. Even the "leak" video of him making the comment over dinner seems like a montage.
For now, the song does not have a release date or title, but it is expected that it won’t miss the momentum generated to publish it soon. After the success of her album “Dharma” and her live performances, the love tiraera could give another boost to Yatra's career.
