J Balvin has issued an apology over the video for his Tokischa collaboration “Perra,” as Billboard reports. The singer confirmed that he removed the clip from YouTube earlier this month following criticism for its demeaning portrayal of Black women. “I want to say sorry to whomever felt offended, especially to the Black community. That’s not who I am. I’m about tolerance, love and inclusivity,” he said in an Instagram story.

“Perra” appears on J Balvin’s newest album Jose, released in September. The video, wherein Black women were portrayed as dogs, premiered in mid-October and drew fast condemnation for its imagery, including from the singer’s mother. In his apology, Balvin said he deleted the video “as a form of respect.”
