Georgel Shines a Light on Real Issues with the release of “No Putx”

by Natasha Melina

Growing up, Mexican singer-songwriter Georgel was surrounded by music with his mom being a professional singer and there always being a range of different music playing at home from Michael Jackson to traditional boleros. Now an artist himself known for singing, songwriting, and composing, he has released “No Putx” featuring Molotov’s Tito Fuentes as a pride anthem but it’s a song that should be celebrated and embraced every single day as it discusses issues important to the artist and the LGBTQIA+ community.

 

He makes a bold statement with his revamp of Molotov’s 1997 rock anthem criticizing politicians “P**o.” Georgel literally sings his heart out as he brings up the machismo in Latin culture as well as how members of the LGBTQIA+ community are constantly being oppressed with homophobic terms such as “p**o.” Although he sings about something that is painful to many, he accomplishes making the song empowering as he asserts his own strength as well as that of his community.

Georgel’s “No Putx” held the honor of being Pride Latin Spotify’s Exclusive Single. The first of its kind and certainly not the last. Unapologetically himself, Georgel will continue to be a voice for those who can’t speak up for themselves.

 

 

Constantly working to evolve as an artist and person, the “No Putx” singer shares what the process of working on his latest EP “Claro” was like during our recent interview.
