“Remove the trap, let reggaeton die”, sings Molotov in his new song ‘Remove the trap’, the second single from his next album.
The band had returned in April with ‘We do not forget’, the first single of the material that makes a reflection on different events and characters that have marked the sociopolitical climate of the country. The song was nominated this week for the Latin Grammy for Best Rock Song. “Here we had to be born”, Miky Huidobro told Rolling Stone about the origin of the song, “If you only know shit, you can’t talk about anything else.”
‘Quiten el trap’ was created with the help of Meme del Real, from Café Tacvba, and reflects on the issues that have captured the media’s attention, such as the fight between J Balvin and Residente.
The song is accompanied by a music video directed by Chava Espinosa and produced by Iván Trujillo, who, using a bowling alley in Mexico City as a location, sought to pay homage to the film. The Big Lebowski.
His #EstallaMolotov2022 tour, which passes through stages in Colombia, Buenos Aires, Chile, Ecuador, the United States, and Mexico, will continue in the coming months. In Lima Molotov will be the band invited to open the Guns N’ Roses concert. The band continues to work on what will be their next record production.
