EL CANTAUTOR RAFAEL ENERGÍA DOMINICANA FEATURING BLACKY RAFFAGA LANZA EL SENCILLO “EL PRIMO”

“El primo” de Rafael Energía Dominicana featuring Blacky Raffaga es una canción con letras jocosas que identifica a muchos Dominicanos y Latinos Americanos por su temática. “Es una canción que trata la realidad que vive una gran parte de las personas en nuestros países por la razón de saber que un familiar se fue a residir a otro país, y esperan que los mismos al regresar le lleven su regalo: sea dinero, ropa o cualquier cosa.” - Rafael Energía Dominicana
