The expression “Ay Caramba” is used to express surprise. There was nothing wrong with the title or lyrics of the song, but the way the video was implemented did not fit the audience well.

This isn’t the first time Tyga has written a song about Mexican culture. The rapper previously wrote songs like Go Loko. However, he decided to give the Ay Caramba song a more “creative” side.

Sadly, it didn’t impress them and they were ready to criticize the rapper.

Tyga explains the backlash.

According to TMZ, Tyga said she was surprised by the criticism while appearing on the American Cholo podcast because she didn’t expect people to be upset about it.

Instead of talking about it and breaking the silence, Tyga decided to learn more and ask her Mexican friends where she went wrong.

I’ve always done Latin records, he declared. When he was composing his Mexican album ‘Go Roco’, the thought occurred to him: ‘This song is literally for the Mexicans who grew up with me.’ I want to respect them in some way. I don’t think I thought, “This song is for the Mexicans who grew up with me” when I sang “Ay Caramba”.

Rapper expresses regret over his video

Taiga recognized her mistake and quickly announced that she would delete the music video completely. At the same time, he also expressed regret.

I’m not Mexican, so I can’t say what offends and doesn’t annoy Mexicans, he continued. But I’m pretty sure I didn’t mean to offend anyone. I would like to start with an apology to our Mexican followers and the Mexican community. Many Latino fans, including Dominicans and Puerto Ricans, may not have been offended by this video. But there were undoubtedly outraged my Los Angeles-based Mexican fans.
