Pedro TQM loses his head in mind-numbing CBD entrepreneurship & pitched early-00s reggaetón for ‘Noche de Entierro’

Pedro TQM (te quiero mucho) is releasing an EP near the end of the year, with a video for ‘Noche de Entierro’, directed by Harrison Fishman, premiering on AQNB today. The Miami-based, Venezuelan-born artist discovered reggaeton while chatting on MSN back in 2005, where these anti-love songs formed his first ideas of how relationships worked from his very early teens.

‘Noche de Entierro’ pulls the chorus from reggaetón mega hit, ‘Noche de Entierro‘, where the melody is melted down into a foggy, hypnotic and distant memory. The video follows Pedro through a CBD convention in Miami Beach, where he and the camera take too many samples and need to take a nap. The artist and the video gets lost in the pitched and slowed haze of substance-induced numbness and CBD entrepreneurship.**

Pedro TQM’s TBC EP is being self-released near the end of 2020.
