Popular Across the Internet/Facebook: "Estoy Enamorado!" Includes "We Are All Humans" Video
"Estoy Enamorado" (English: I'm in Love) is the first single released by a very popular Reggaeton duo Wisin & Yandel from their live album La Revolución: Live. The song was released digitally on July 27, 2010. The Spanish lyrics that have to do with the expression of love toward his partner are combined in the video with shocking images of a couple being racially profiled, then arrested by The Border Patrol while the husband's young granddaughter looks on stunned as her grandparents are thrown in jail. It also shows the remorse of a Latino Border Patrol agent as he sees the child crying.
While they reiterate the phrase "Estoy Enamorado", there are scenes of a nighttime chase in the desert located on the border between Mexico and the United States. As a corollary, some Latino people living in the U.S. literally fade from their daily lives. It concludes with a crowd protesting the persecution of immigrants and the racial profiling of Latinos while lifting banners and shouting: "¡Si se Puede!" (Yes we can!)
In the end, the screen goes dark and in white lyrics it reads as follows:
"Creemos en la protección de los derechos de todo ser humano. La Ley SB1070 representa una violacion de esos derechos y una injusticia contra la integridad de nuestras comunidades. En nuestra unión esta la fuerza. Unámosnos. Recuerda en este mundo todos somos iguales!"
("We believe in protecting the rights of every human being. SB 1070 Law represents a violation of those rights and an injustice to the integrity of our communities. In our union there is strength. Unite. Remember: in this world, we are all equal!")
