A song by Tini Stoessel and María Becerra has been canceled in Mexico

Mexico has decided to cancel the song Lie to me which the singers released in April last year Tini Stoessel Yes Mary Becerra, but the reason they used to avoid broadcasting on all stations generated a strong controversy on social networks. It’s that They felt that the lyrics of the song can incite violence in a context where a large wave of femicide is sweeping the country.

According to what the managers of the various radio stations have indicated, Mexican authorities censored the hit exclusively for arguing that the content stimulates gender-based violencewhich they say has strong cultural roots in the North American country.

The song Lie to me has become a real worldwide success, to the point that it has been the most listened to on digital platforms and currently its music video has more than 300 million views on YouTube.

Some of the lines that Tini sings that Mexican leaders say warrant the song’s cancellation are: “Do what you want with me”, “Please lie to me” or “If the Looks could kill, then you and I wouldn’t be alive.”

It’s not the first time a song has been canceled in Mexico, as years ago Becky G’s Mayores was also censored for its controversial lyrics. The American singer disagreed and accused the measure of being “sexist because with a man they would not have acted the same way”.

Until now Neither Tini Stoessel nor María Becerra spoke about this surprising censorship of its theme song.

no doubt that the wave of femicides in Mexico is alarming, since in 2021 gender-based violence added a total of 3,462 murdered women from January to November, with an average of more than 10 Mexican women dying per day, not counting the December figures which have not yet been published.

According to figures provided by the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System (SESNSP), Of the more than 3,000 murdered, 922 were victims of femicide, classified as the killing of a woman for reasons of gender-based or gender-based violence, while 2,540 were victims of intentional homicide, as reported by the media.

This appalling number provoked protests and street marches by Mexican women who came out to protest, and among the measures the government deemed appropriate was the cancellation of the song Lie to me that Tini and María Becerra do, a decision that caused outrage and surprise, those who remained reflected in social networks.

The lyrics of the song Lie to me

come on lie to me

do what you want with me

Tell me tonight I’m your baby

And tomorrow we’re friends, friends

lie to me please

do what you want with me

Oh, tell me tonight I’m your baby

And tomorrow we’re friends, friends

Who said friend?

If I know you much more without the clothes

I know you wanted to be with me

Although when someone sees you without their boyfriend

i know you need

‘If the look could kill, so-so-so

You and I wouldn’t be alive to comment-nar-nar

When we are accompanied alone and blah blah blah

But if we are alone and much muah, muah, muah

If looks could kill, so-so-so

You and I wouldn’t be alive to comment-nar-nar

When we are accompanied alone and blah blah blah

But if we are alone a lot muah, muah, muah

come on lie to me

do what you want with me

Tell me tonight I’m your baby

Although tomorrow we’ll be friends, friends

please lie to me

do what you want with me

Oh, tell me tonight I’m your baby

And tomorrow we’re friends, friends

toy clearer than water

Baby, I sink even if tomorrow you leave

I don’t know what’s happening to me

But today I want to cross the line

because if he kisses me

Victory goes to my head

Today we mix tequila with beer

‘Cause I know deep down you like it, go ahead, confess

because if he kisses me

Victory goes to my head

Today we mix tequila with beer

‘Cause I know deep down you like it, just admit it

come on lie to me

do what you want with me

Tell me that tonight I’m your wife

Although tomorrow we’ll be friends, friends

lie to me please

do what you want with me

Oh, tell me tonight I’m your baby

And tomorrow we’re friends, friends

Does it count?

If life is one, what does it matter?

You already know that tonight is very short

You and me have to live in the moment

What’s not im-, what’s not im-, what doesn’t matter?

If life is one, what does it matter?

You already know that tonight is very short

You and me have to live in the moment

What doesn’t matter?
