Dominicana prohíbe ocho temas de reggaetón por “contenido vulgar”

The Dominican entertainment authorities banned on Wednesday the radio and television broadcast of eight songs of the urban genre, including the Puerto Rican stars Bad Bunny and Farruko, due to its "vulgar content".

JM Hidalgo, president of the Public Spectacles Commission, explained in a statement that the eight banned songs exhibit a "High obscene content" both in their lyrics, as in their videos.

Among the songs that will not be broadcast on Dominican radio and TV is "We are clear" of Puerto Ricans Miky Woodz and Bad Bunny, and "I want to talk to you" by Bryant Myers, also Boricua.

The theme "What I Say", a collaboration of Bad Bunny, Miky Woodz, Jon Z and Farruko with the Dominican El Alfa, was banned for making in his video "An apology of drug trafficking", according to Hidalgo. The Commission banned "I want to talk" about Bryant Myers because of his vulgar expressions of sexual character.

"The high sexual content, obscene, incitement to death, suicide and use of banned substances are being used inconsiderately," lamented Hidalgo, who has maintained a campaign to eradicate the vulgar Letters of the urban issues of trap, hip Hop and Reggaetón.

The layout does not prohibit the singers from interpreting the banned songs in their live concerts.
