There were even several fans who would like to enjoy a collaboration between Doble P and Aoki, “That means that Loui and Peso Pluma are going to collaborate,” said others.

Lately, the singer of corridos tumbados has generated controversy due to the success he has achieved with his compositions. As a result, the public has been divided between those who declare themselves fans and others who do not like him.

On April 21, Gustavo Adolfo Infante described Peso Pluma’s and other performers’ music as “vulgar.” This happened while on De Primera Mano. They were talking about Yeri Mua, her criticized imitations of Jenni Rivera, and that episode where the influencer urinated in public.

“You listen to the lyrics of Peso Pluma, the lyrics of Natanael Cano, I’m talking about different genres, the lyrics of Babo del Cartel, Cartel de Santa, Arcángel, Bad Bunny; in other words, they are pure obscenities, sexualization, and vulgarity,” said the communicator at a certain point in their conversation.


On the other hand, a few days ago, Hassan Emilio Kabande Laija, better known as Peso Pluma, was described as “naco” by a Twitter user. The singer approached his social networks to answer the criticism, saying it was nothing more than classism. The singer performed alongside Becky G at the Coachella festival, where Bad Bunny performed as a headliner.

Despite certain opinions rejecting the artists, the participation of Bad Bunny, Peso Pluma, Becky G, and Rosalía at Coachella 2023 was very well received, so much so that it was said on social networks that the Spanish language was being represented at a festival that has historically been the stage for English and American singers and bands.
