KAROL G "BICHOTA"

Karol G is making the rounds with “Bichota,” a song which according to the Colombian singer is a “moment of power to those who listen to it, especially women.”

The term refers to "a moment of feeling sexy, flirtatious, daring, strong, empowered, and to a certain extent, [it] translates into personal motivation and self-confidence,” she tells Billboard. “We are all super 'Bichotas' inside. It’s about believing and working so that the rest of the world can see it too.”

“Bichota” is linked to the Puerto Rican slang bichote, deriving from the English term “big shot.” But despite its positive connotation in the lyrics, a “bichote” is an “individual who, due to his economic or political position, is considered important or influential, generally related to the sale of drugs,” according to Tesoro Lexicográfico del español de Puerto Rico.

Released on October 23, “Bichota” debuted at No. 7 on the Hot Latin Songs chart dated Nov. 7, marking Karol’s 10th top 10. She also became the first female artist to debut in the list’s top 10 without another act in eight years. Gloria Estefan achieved the feat with “Hotel Nacional” debuting at No. 1 in 2012 and Paulina Rubio’s “Ni Una Sola Palabra” debuting at No. 4 in 2006.

Below, check out the complete lyrics of “Bichota” translated to English.


I come out well-dressed from head to toe
Because you might run into my ass
I feel like a bichota without leaving the hood
Everyone wants to sleep with me but they don’t have the resources

They show off, but they can't with my pum-pum, with my pum-pum
And if there’s someone who will give it to me
Because they can't handle my pum-pum
With my pum-pum, with my pum-pum

You can notice my flow from afar
We had a couple of bottles and now we’re going crazy
I also have a Jeepeta
I have a full tank with all my girls
We left the fear in the drawer
Careful with what I post on my stories
Guess who’s coming
Juana’s coming, Mari’s coming
All the babies want to party
An out of place comment
And we're going to destroy you, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah

I come out well-dressed from head to toe
Because you might run into my ass
I feel like a bichota without leaving the hood
Everyone wants to sleep with me but they don’t have the resources

They show off, but they can't with my pum-pum, with my pum-pum
And if there’s someone who will give it to me
Because they can't handle my pum-pum
With my pum-pum, with my pum-pum
They show off, but they can't with my pum-pum, with my pum-pum
And if there’s someone who will give it to me
Because they can't handle my pum-pum
With my pum-pum, with my pum-pum

Twerking hard, he likes my ass
I’ve been waiting for you for a long time
I don't know about you, but I'm here thinking
You don't do anything for the one who's showing off
You are quick to give me a like on Insta
But it’s rumored out there that you are precocious
No matter how much they hit me up, I don’t care
The one who fronted me can't be heard from here (Ha)

I come out well-dressed from head to toe
Because you might run into my ass
I feel like a bichota without leaving the hood
Everyone wants to sleep with me but they don’t have the resources

They show off, but they can't with my pum-pum, with my pum-pum
And if there’s someone who will give it to me
Because they can't handle my pum-pum
With my pum-pum, with my pum-pum
They show off
