Peso Pluma, one of the most prominent figures of the corridos tumbados, has caused a stir with his recent statements, causing controversy for his “humble” attitude when calling himself the savior of regional Mexican music.

It was in an interview for the program ‘El Gordo y La Flaca’ that the singer described himself as a “superhero” who has “saved regional Mexican music.” These statements generated a flurry of reactions on social networks, where his followers were divided between praise and criticism.

Hassan Emilio Kabande Laija, better known as Peso Pluma, has managed to position himself as a reference figure in contemporary Mexican music. With hits like “She Baila Sola” and his participation in renowned international programs, his impact on the industry is undeniable.

In the interview, Peso Pluma described himself as an “extroverted character who is not afraid to show himself as he is.” He assured that his presence has been crucial for the revitalization of the regional genre, even comparing himself to a superhero.

“I think Peso Pluma is the before and after of a new era in Mexican music. “He is this type of superhero within music, within the Mexican regional industry, who came to change things, who came to save the genre,” he said, referring to himself in the third person.

The statements did not go unnoticed. On platforms such as X, Tiktok and Instagram, users began to mock the artist, with memes and satirical comments that quickly went viral.

However, there were also those who defended the words of ‘La Double P’, arguing that its influence has been significant for the international projection of the genre.

Critics point out that such statements trivialize the efforts of other artists who have also contributed to the rise of corridos tumbados and regional music in general, highlighting others such as Natanael Cano, Junior H and Grupo Frontera.

In this context, some accuse Featherweight of exalting itself excessively and of ignoring the collective work that has led the genre to its current popularity.

Meanwhile, his most loyal fans continue to celebrate his achievements. Being one of the most listened to artists on streaming platforms like Spotify is no small feat, and her participation in international shows continues to cement her reputation.
