"Muerte En Hawaii" by Calle 13, English translation of lyrics

"Death in Hawaii"
Album: Entren Los Que Quieran (Enter Those Who Want To), 2010
Style: Love song, ukelele, exaggerated accomplishments, ode
Country: Puerto Rico

Listen:

The lyrics are a cute love song, but I guess Calle 13 didn’t want to be cute, so they juxtaposed the song with a violent and bizarre music video. The album won "Album of the Year" in the 2011 Latin Grammys and was nominated for "Best Latin, Pop, Rock or Urban Album" in the 2012 Grammys.
