Controversy[edit]

In Colombia, a cover version of the single "Estos Celos" by 'El Cape' Medina and Sneider Geles recorded on vallenato style and included on the album Por Siempre y Para Siempre was not allowed to be broadcast by the Colombian Music Association. The song was recorded without a commercial release planned, and the album recorded by Medina and Geles was only given to their friends, but the song unexpectedly achieved success on Internet and some radio stations in Colombia. 'Cape' Medina said about the song: "We know that the original publisher in México found out about our version in 'vallenato' style, and also they know about the success of our version and maybe out of jealousy the decided to restrict, not forbid, the song."[20] To date, this version can still be found on file sharing websites and in the video sharing website YouTube.[21][citation needed]
