Paquita la del Barrio (“Franny from the neighborhood”) returns!

This Mexican singer of rancheras and other Mexican styles uses her songs to take a stance against Mexico’s sexist male culture, which not surprisingly has made her popular among female audiences (although men love her, too).

About:

Paquita’s signature phrase, with which she often teases male spectators in her shows, is “¿Me estás oyendo, inútil?” (“Are you listening to me, you good-for-nothing?”).

Many of her albums and songs are jukebox staples in Mexican clubs and cantinas. One of her best known songs is Rata de dos patas (“Two-legged rat”), in which she uses a rat as a metaphor for a man. Many admirers, particularly outside Mexico, also appreciate Paquita for her camp value.
