Update on June 5: Hours after dropping “Girasol,” Nodal posted on Instagram that he was “sorry” the track came out after the fact that he and J Balvin had spoken and had come to an agreement. “I forgave him for his lack of consciousness,” Nodal wrote on his Instagram Story. “Maybe if they would’ve asked me if I was ok with him posting that photo to his 50 million followers it would have been different. But on the contrary, I was hurt by, I was exposed.” Meanwhile, Balvin took to Instagram early Sunday to say: “I’m no one to judge him. He was going through a rough time. I made a joke with no bad intentions but I understand where he’s coming from. He publicly apologized and I am doing the same thing. He was a gentleman in doing that and I respect that more than anyone else. The other stuff doesn’t matter anymore.”
“I’m going to make you cry,” Nodal starts off the five-minute track. “I don’t want to laugh with you, I’m going to laugh at you. You’re a joke, every time you try to sing, every time you try to rap, every time you try to rhyme, poor clown that uses everyone else to be able to connect with people,” he raps.
The tiradera comes days after Nodal and Balvin’s back-and-forth on social media that was sparked by a photo posted by the “Mi Gente” singer. The post included a photo of Nodal with bleached hair and reading glasses, and another of Balvin with a similar look, captioning it: “Find the differences.”
Nodal quickly responded by re-posting the photo on his Instagram stories and writing, “[The difference] is that I do have talent and I can proudly sing songs I’ve written wherever, however and whenever.” He then went on to post a video of himself with Residente’s diss track, in which he blasts the Colombian artist, playing in the background. Residente chimed in by posting a video on his stories and soundtracking it with Nodal’s “Limon Con Sal.”
Balvin continued to fan the flames by saying in a new video that he didn’t mean anything bad while using a filter that featured the name of Nodal’s ex-girlfriend Belinda.
“As everyone knows, I’m not good at talking so I am going into the studio because I’m going to record something really cool. Residente kicked you in the a– and you didn’t learn. I think you liked it. But mine will hurt more because I wear cowboy boots, and those are pointy so it’ll hurt more. Maybe that’s how you’ll learn.”
“You’re fighting with the Grammys because you don’t deserve them. Don’t you see that you’re a joke? If you didn’t learn with Resi, I hope you learn with me. I hope this is the last time that someone kicks your a–,” Nodal spits.
In an Instagram story, Balvin simply said, “To my fans, I love you. To all the chismosos [nosy people] who are here to check if I’m going to respond …”
