Gera MX is one of the most important rappers on the Mexican scene. He previously collaborated with Christian Nodal on the hit single, ‘Botella Tras Botella’ that reached the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the first Regional Mexican song to do so.
And La Perla Bogotá brings a diverse mixture of cumbia, merengue, champeta, bullerengue, porro and beatbox. The group is made up of four women who joined forces to combine their talents in 2014.
The classic song, “Sad But True” comes to light in 2021 in its own right thanks to each artists talent and revitalizes the energy and immediately sounds like a hit from our times without losing the essence that made it great by Metallica.
