The song has not only been criticized for its choreography, but also for its lyrics and name, because even though the song is called ‘Machu Picchu’,one of the seven wonders of the world, it is only referred to in just one small part.
The original lyrics are:
“Yo tengo más ruinas que Machu Picchu,
he destruido mil planetas con cada cosa que he dicho.
¿Y cómo fue que te fijaste en una cosa
que era todo menos una obra de arte?
Yo hago lo que quieras pa’ que tú me quieras”
"I have more ruins than Machu Picchu,
I have destroyed a thousand planets with every single thing I have said.
And how did you notice one thing
that it was anything but a work of art?
I do what you want so that you want me "
‘Machu Picchu’, which has not been well received by Peruvians, as it has a video recorded in Chía, Colombia, which was directed by Evaluna and Santiago Achaga and not in Machu Picchu or in Peru at all.
These have been some of the comments that can be found on social networks for the launch of the new song: "No, now I'm looking for Machu Picchu and I get this song and not the wonder Peru", "Peruvians stay like this ������".
"They used one of the seven wonders of the world such as Machu Picchu to mention it only once and it does not even have anything to do with the song or the video ... For the next one, do not use something so representative of a country so as not to value it as it is has to".
