Viña del Mar, Chile, Feb 28 (EFE).- The Puerto Rican reggaeton duo of Wisin

"I believe we're not offending women," Juan Luis Morera Luna, a.k.a. Wisin, said Thursday, a day before the group will perform at the Viña del Mar Festival's closing-night concert.

Wisin said, for example, that the lyrics to the track "Sexy movimiento" - which roughly translate as "You have a knockout body that any man would want to touch. Sexy Movement" - praise women for their beauty.

The Cuban government's assessment of the group's lyrics as obscene was "unfounded," he said, referring to a measure handed down earlier this year on the island.

Wisin added that the duo's only intention is to "bring joy and have a good time."

The artist also said the group has "millions" of Cuban fans, not only among the Cuban-exile community in the United States but also among the island's residents, and that most of their hard-core fans are women.

The duo will be performing for the second time at the Viña del Mar Festival, which has included reggaeton as one of its staple genres.
