Karol G, the Colombian singing sensation, has unveiled her newest album, “Mañana será bonito: Bichota Season.” This long-anticipated release surprised fans with a compilation of 10 new tracks. One song, in particular, “Mi ex tenía razón,” stood out due to the buzz it generated even before the album’s official release. Many speculated that this song would once again address her past relationship with ex-partner Anuel AA.

However, fans and critics alike might be taken aback: while the song does respond to Anuel AA, it’s not a dedication to him. Instead, it’s an ode to her new love, Feid. The track’s most poignant line, “My ex was right, that I wasn’t going to find another one like him, and I got a better one,” vividly captures the essence of Karol G’s message. This is perceived by many as a direct counter to Anuel AA’s recent song “Mejor que yo,” which is believed to be about Karol G’s current boyfriend.

Adding layers to the album’s narrative, the music video accompanying “Mi ex tenía razón” pays homage to the late American artist Selena Quintanilla. The rhythm of the song nods to the queen of Tex-Mex, and Karol G dons a short top featuring a photograph of the iconic singer, known for hits like “Amor Prohibido” and “Como la flor.” The video further emphasizes this tribute by showcasing visuals reminiscent of the era when Selena Quintanilla was a dominant figure in the music industry.

Beyond the song’s apparent themes, Karol G delves deeper into her feelings about past relationships. Lyrics like “I really don’t know why the fuck I cried. If now I realize that I was the one who crowned,” suggest a newfound realization and contentment in her current phase of life. “I no longer miss the life I had when I think about what I was saying,” she adds, further emphasizing her transition.
