Boasting is almost expected in the genre to some degree, and such bragging almost makes sense when considering Pérez’s commercial success and ubiquity in the music scene, but it certainly sits at odds with the with the album’s title, Climate Change, which conjures up heady thoughts of socio-political discourse, global economic disparities, and intergenerational equity and responsibilities. It is unclear why Pérez chose such a charged title for the album title, and if he is seeking to enter the debate about global warming, and its implications, he appears to be advocating the ostrich approach to the problem; bring the honeys, and just head down to the club to party – it’s air-conditioned!
