2022 may not have been a perfect year, but if we can agree on something, it is that throughout these months, we have not lacked good music. Many bands and artists that beat us are raffling off throwing songs that blew our minds, but some also took the opportunity to return after a long time without releasing something new, like Molotov.
It was in April when Micky Huidobro, Paco Ayala, Tito Fuentes and Randy Ebright returned to hit the presidents hard with their song “We don’t forget” (HERE you can listen to it in full). However, since then they have been somewhat silent, but now we have them back and speaking without mincing words about what many think of the urban genre, one of the most popular today.
A few weeks ago, Molotov announced with great fanfare that very soon they would release a new song called “Remove the trap”. But now and after much waiting, this September 22 they finally released this song and hold on, because they went hard and to the jugular all reggaeton artists. Of course, you know, with funny lyrics where once again they show us their expertise in making acid criticism.
To give you an idea, on this song – which sounds strongly influenced by western music but without moving away from rock – the band raps and makes fun of all the things that surround urban singers, such as jewelry, cars luxurious and showing off all their money just because, in addition to making it very clear that what they offer the least is quality music, since they are more focused on how they look than what they want to contribute to their fans. And you know what the most ironic part of all this is? That in the choir they use the famous auto-tune, one of the most used tools in this genre.
In addition to the single, they also released the official video clip, which was produced by Truco and was directed by Chava Espinosa, who has been in charge of films and series such as I order you there, Guadalupe-Reyes and Club de Cuervos. In the video we see the band taking on other musical genres in an intense and fun bowling tournament, which serves as a tribute to The Big Lebowski. Although be careful, at the end there is a plot twist that will undoubtedly leave you with a square eye.
But it was good to talk, stop what you are doing, run for your headphones and turn up the volume to listen to “Quiten el trap”, the new Molotv song.
