LO LEGAL

El Bebeto’s “Lo Legal” (“What’s Legal”) is a monster hit on Mexican radio. It’s technically a love song, with no direct reference to  U.S. immigration policy, the wave of immigration that saw millions of Mexicans head north in recent years, or the separation and heartbreak that resulted.

But if you want it to be a protest song, it’s all there. (The video, above, connects the dots a little more explicitly.)
