JBalvin apologized for his “Bitch” video, especially to women and the black community.

A week after being removed from YouTube, Colombian reggaeton JBalvin apologized for the video for his song “Perra”, which sparked a lot of controversy after being widely criticized as “sexist” and “racist.”

“That is not part of what I have always expressed. My thing has always been tolerance, love and integration“Balvin said in a message posted on his Instagram account in which he apologized for the video he recorded with the Dominican rapper Tokischa.

The song, which makes a comparison between the zeal of the female canine and the woman, was recreated by both artists with Afro-descendant women with muzzles and neck chains being pulled or inside what looked like cages.

I’m in heat, I’m in heat, I open on all fours‘Put a fan on me, “says the lyrics of the song, in whose video – recorded in the Dominican Republic – men, women and children appear with the faces of dogs.
