I was looking through my Facebook feed yesterday and found a post written by Alicia Keys thanking the people of Puerto Rico for the hospitality and welcome that she experienced when she visited the Island to film the video for this song.
This chance finding lead me to the original song, its composer and the collaborators who delivered several versions.
I will include here the original song, an acoustic version and a remix with Farruko.
The Alicia Keys version warrants a post of its own.
“Calma” is a single by Puerto Rican singer Pedro Capó. The song was co-written by Capó, George Noriega and Gabriel Edgar Gonzalez Perez. A remix version featuring Farruko was released on October 5, 2018. Another remix version featuring Alicia Keys was released on April 19, 2019.
Since its release, the song has become a huge success, topping the charts of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Italy, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela.
“Good-bye Drogo, Aquaman, Declan, Baba!” he says, throwing one patch of hair into the wind, bidding farewell to his deceased (and bearded) Game of Thrones and other characters.
“I just want to do this to bring awareness that plastics are killing our planet,” he then explains, while shaving the right side of his face. “And I think I have a solution. I don’t wanna bitch about it. It’s only one thing that can really help our planet and save our planet.”
What is this one thing? A new line of aluminum water cans. As Momoa explains, while trimming away locks of his face pubes,
“About 75 percent of all aluminum that’s ever been used is still in circulation today, and it’s 100 percent recyclable. So you drink the can, and in about 60 days, it’ll be back.”
That does sound good.
Once his whole beard is off (RIP), bare-faced Momoa lays out the water cans in the dirt, cracks one open, and takes a big gulp.
Earth Day, an event to increase public awareness of the world’s environmental problems, is celebrated in the United States for the first time. Millions of Americans, including students from thousands of colleges and universities, participated in rallies, marches, and educational programs.
Earth Day was the brainchild of Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin, a staunch environmentalist who hoped to provide unity to the grassroots environmental movement and increase ecological awareness.
“The objective was to get a nationwide demonstration of concern for the environment so large that it would shake the political establishment out of its lethargy,” Senator Nelson said, “and, finally, force this issue permanently onto the national political agenda.”
Earth Day indeed increased environmental awareness in America, and in July of that year the Environmental Protection Agency was established by special executive order to regulate and enforce national pollution legislation.
