In November 2019, Kiko El Crazy and El Cherry Scom released the video for their theme song “Bajé con Trenza“. A sticky melody full of rhythms, colors and braids.
The exponents of the Dominican urban genre, used this expression to say that they returned very well.
In December of the same year, they received the collaboration of Ozuna to record the remix of “Bajé con Trenza“ in the neighborhood Los Mina, east of Santo Domingo.

Finally, there is a number of criticisms of the urban genre as the implementation of new terms to local jargons is damaged. They point to these expressions as harmful and unsusities in each country’s cultures.
However, just as there are criticisms, there are praise for those who have preferred to leave the dark paths to venture into music, without taking as a priority the expressions and new words that are added to the words.
