Maria Becerra brings old-school reggaetón back to life (and causes a car accident) in ‘Automático’ video – Rolling Stone

The track follows the release of his solo single “Ojalá” earlier this year.

Automatic Perreo from Argentina’s Nena. On Thursday, María Becerra released her single “Automático” and accompanied it with a queer code, fast furious-esque music video.

“’Automatico’ is really a dream song for me. I have always listened to old people perreos and old reggaetones and all the time I wanted to do something like that, the singer said of the song in a press release. “I think with this song we achieved that, so I’m very happy with the result.”

The video for “Automático” opens with the arrival of a mean woman with a tattooed face at Becerra’s car shop.

“Ponlo en automático, sé mi fanático”, sings Becerra. “¿Cómo se siente si rebotan los neumáticos? At 150 aunque no haya prisa/Y que sólo sean testigos los parabrisas/Ponlo en automático, se mi fanático. (In English: “Put it on automatic, be my fanatic / What if the tires bounce? Go to 150 even if there is no emergency / And only the bumpers breeze be a witness/Put it on automatic, be my fanatic.”)

Accompanied by sexy choreography, the video shows Becerra assisting (and hosting) a drag race, before performing choreography with his mechanical shop crew. The video ends with the two race cars crashing and its female drivers engaging in a steamy makeup session.

The sexy new track follows Becerra’s solo release of “Ojalá” earlier this year after dropping his full album Animal in 2021. This album featured collaborations with Becky G on “Wow Wow” and Danny Ocean on “No Eres Tú Soy Yo”.

Over the past two years, Becerra has become the go-to female artist for feature films on Latin pop and reggaetón songs, appearing on tracks by Camila Cabello, Zion & Lennox, Cazzu and Sofía Reyes, among others. She also performed the hit “¿Qué Más Pues?” with J Balvin at the Grammys with J Balvin earlier this year.
