Está Bueno: Watch Los Rivera Destino's High Tune, 'Mis Amigos'

"It's no secret that a large part of the population of Puerto Rico uses cannabis. It blends well with our climate and, adding the influence of American hip-hop and Jamaican reggae, smoking marijuana has become part of our culture. The important thing is it's becoming less of a taboo and is helping our country medicinally."

This statement was provided to CelebStoner by the Puerto Rican band Los Rivera Destino. They just released the high tune, "Mis Amigos," which celebrates their love of cannabis. Watch the stony video above.

"It's no secret that a large part of the population of Puerto Rico uses cannabis. Smoking marijuana has become part of our culture." 

"The song is inspired by friends that may not always have the same interests, but will always be there for each other," band members Antonio Sánchez, Carlos Figueroa and Fernando Tarrazo explain. "We all have friends who smoke weed and friends who don't. It shows how our differences can bring us together."

Los Rivera Destino began as a comedy team eight years ago and evolved into a band. They had their breakthrough in 2019 with "Flor," which featured Puerto Rican hitmaker Bad Bunny. "Mis Amigos" will appear on their upcoming album produced by Calle 13's Ismael Cancel.

"Mis Amigos" Lyrics (Translated)

My friends smoke pot

A lot of grass they smoke

They get flushed, they get high

With a blunt or with a pen

They’re always happy

 

My friends smoke weed

They’re always messed up

They don’t like coke

Everything through the mouth

Never the nose

 

My father, frightened, tells me

To stay away from them

They are stoners

But they’re my brothers

And I love them the way they are

 

My friends smoke marijuana

They are always crazy

When they are in Spain

And they don’t find ganja

They smoke hashish

 

My friends use a bong

They always get it long

They never accept defeat

They always smoke another one

They never want to leave

 

My girlfriend always asks me

If I’ve been smoking

You see, they greeted me

And I shook hands

And their smell rubbed off on me

 

Their smell rubbed off on me

La la la la la la

 

My girlfriend always asks me

If I’ve been smoking

My friends smoke grass

But they always do it around me

 

Around me, around me, around me

 

Light up and pass the Phillie, yeah
