If you've heard Alt.Latino, you know we love Julieta Venegas. She's musically exceptional, beautiful without exploiting her physical appearance, and down to earth. Her new video for "Despedida" (Farewell) was filmed in Mexico and Argentina, and it looks like a dream. It's a video full of quirky paradoxes. The Mexican singer is heavily pregnant (she recently gave birth), but it's a breakup song. It's a breakup song, but there's footage of animals being cuddly with each other and even trying to mate. Perhaps Venegas is commenting on the natural cycles of life — love, birth, separation? Watch the video and tell us what you think.

Nuevo Video De Julieta Venegas: 'Despedida'

Aquellos que escuchan nuestro show semanal saben que adoramos a Julieta Venegas. Tiene un inmenso talento musical, es bella (pero no explota esa belleza de manera vulgar) y simplemente nos cae como una persona muy genuina. Su nuevo video para la canción “Despedida” fue filmado en México y Argentina, y parece un sueño. Es un video lleno de paradojas graciosas: La cantante Mexicana esta embarazada (recientemente dio a luz), pero es una canción sobre despedidas. Es una canción sobre despedidas, pero a lo largo del video muestran animalitos haciéndose cariños e incluso tratando de copular. ¿Tal vez Julieta esta haciendo un comentario acerca de los ciclos naturales de la vida? ¿El amor, el nacimiento, la separación? Mira el video y dinos que piensas.
