Singer and actress Danna Paola said that authorities in Progreso tried to prevent her from filming a gay-themed music video on the beach.
The song in the video makes reference to “coming out of the closet” and includes a handful of scenes of the singer herself and two scantily dressed men. Nothing obscene was depicted in the video.
“The video was really hard to shoot because authorities told us that we could not film that kind of scene on the beach, but we carried on anyway,” said the singer.
The performer did not mention if the authorities trying to censor the music video were police or some other type of local or state official. She also offered no evidence that any confrontation occurred at all.
A four-minute, 11-second music video for the song “Sodio” was released in 2020 and can be seen on the artist’s YouTube channel. It too was shot along the Yucatán coast, showing the Progreso carousel and the pink lakes of Las Coloradas.
Reception for the music video has been mostly positive.
The 26-year-old is best known for her appearances as a judge on TV Azteca’s singing competition program “La Academia,” as well as the Netflix series “Élite.”
