"It all stems from just realizing the political state we live in," the Billboard Latin Music Awards finalist says on Billboard's Latin Connection Podcast. "I mean, look at who we named president? It certainly prompts some sort of fear or sense of insecurity in the Latin/immigrant community."
The track, with a powerful music video filmed on the Tijuana/U.S. border, focuses on Juan, a hard-working immigrant who crossed for a shot at the American Dream. "We all know a Juan. He or she is the field worker, a job not many are willing to do, a doctor, a cook ... My mom is a Juan. She came here with nothing to open a field of opportunities for me, an American-born citizen."
