Another story... "El Novio Reggaetonero"


Confession: I love reggaetón music and I love Ozuna's music. My running playlists are full of it! But so much of it is totally misogynistic and inappropriate. And the videos... ay, ay, ay, don't even get me started on those, like this one "Que va"... all the women on the boat just seem like objects, but I love the song! And I love "Cásate conmigo" (not really reggaetón, I know), but felt the same way about that video, so I made up a story that flipped that and made the women the providers.

So, with all that in mind, I wrote up a story: "El Novio Reggaetonero" to go along with Ozuna and Wisin's new video "Quisiera alejarme." The story incorporates some of Ozuna's life, some of the lyrics, and is loosely based on the video. I made up some more activities to go along with the song, but the story and cloze activity will stay open and free.

I recommend telling the story before watching the video, in a Story Listening way

Also, I am just realizing that this might be perfect to do after "Usted". I am pretty sure that these two songs could totally be intertwined and connected... future project!

If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Or if you see any mistakes, let me know. I wrote this up pretty quickly this morning.

Also, if you want to learn more about Reggaetón, check out this episode of AltLatino: Reggaeton In The Age of #MeToo. It has some fantastic perspectives.
