“La Mujer Traiciona” narrates the story of a woman who is unfaithful as a result of physical, mental and emotional abuse from her partner.

“If a woman doesn’t feel protected and doesn’t feel loved, she will most probably betray her partner,” Tavarez tells Billboard. “This song was born with the need to give women a weapon to say ‘yes, I failed you but it was your fault.’”

Recent statistics by the National Domestic Violence Hotline show that “on average, 24 people per minute are victims of rape, physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner in the United States,” which is why Tavarez decided to bring up the important social issue.

“Not only do we want to raise awareness but we want to make it clear that domestic violence is a problem,” he says. “Above all, we want to empower women not to give up and to seek help if this is happening to them.”

Directed by Laura Castellanos, the music video shows the heartbreaking storyline of a woman who is a victim of abuse but in the end, leaves her toxic relationship. The closing frame shares the phone number to National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1−800−799−7233

“It was incredible to film this video during the pandemic,” Tavarez says, explaining that Beéle filmed his part in Bogota, the actors were filmed in Medellin, and he filmed in Miami.

For his new track, which is a tropical dancehall with Afrobeat melodies, Tavarez teamed up with Beéle because he admires his incredible voice and clarity on his sound. “I’m really happy to have him on this song. I like to vouch for the newer talents.”

As for the best advice he can offer to men and women in this situation? “It all starts with self-love,” he says. “If you give your partner an environment of love, your partner will respond with the same. Men, don’t ever lay a hand on a woman for any reason and women, be smart! Many times men give the wrong signals from the beginning.”

“La Mujer Traiciona,” which was produced by Dimelo Flow and King Swifft, forms part of Tavarez’s upcoming studio album Krack, which includes collaborations with Nicky Jam, Rauw Alejandro, Cazzu, Anitta and Natanael Cano, among others.

Dyland & Lenny Leads Protest March in Puerto Rico…

They’ve captured the hearts of millions with their music… And, now Dyland & Lenny are hoping to catch their attention!

The popular Puerto Rican reggaeton duo led a protest march this week against domestic violence, as well as against the popular Latin/Caribbean custom of shooting guns in the air during New Year’s festivities.

Dyland, born Carlos Castillo Cruz, told Efe in an interview that his participation in the march—which made its way through the streets of the western city of Mayagüez—was due to his concern over violence and a wish to use his fame to support a good cause.

Meanwhile, Julio Manuel González Tavárez (Lenny) said he was “alarmed” by the number of murders in Puerto Rico, 1,116 to date in 2011, or 154 more than at the same time last year.

Lenny added that the march could be organized on a monthly basis and that he feels he should to contribute something to causes like this.

“We feel responsible because when you’re an artist, you become a role model for many youngsters who don’t have a role model at home and are kids who look up to artists and do what the artists say,” said Lenny.

Dyland & Lenny’s biggest hits include “Nadie Te Amará Como Yo“, “Quiere Pa’ Que Te Quieran“, “Caliente” and their latest single “Pégate Más.
