Stream: MALA SANTA – Becky G on TIDAL

Between collaborations with Daddy Yankee, Maluma and J Balvin, Mexican-American pop star Becky G has established herself as urbano’s favorite sidekick. But in the video for her steely reggaeton single, “Mala Santa,” she proved she can do bad all by herself. “Mala Santa” is the title track from her highly anticipated debut LP, released Friday on Sony Music Latin.

Meaning “Bad Saint” in English, “Mala Santa” informs potential suitors that Becky G is “neither bad nor holy” — she’s just out to have a good time. Over a hard-edged dembow beat, her devil-may-care verses evoke an age-old feminist slogan addressing a sexist double-standard against women in pursuit of pleasure: “Ni santas, ni putas, sólo mujeres,” goes the saying, or “Not saints, not sluts, just women.”
