Google has unveiled its Year in Search 2019, spotlighting the list of searches that marked a trend during the year. Karol G managed to make it one of the lists thanks to her Nicki Minaj-assisted track “Tusa,” released in November.
Todos estabamos curiosos de saber what the word “tusa” meant. It ultimately landed the term “Que es Tusa?” in the Google searches in Spanish Top 10 list at No. 10. Other popular search terms that Latinos in the U.S. looked for this year include the meaning of polygamy, meningitis, life imprisonment, and pansexual.
Karol G le dijo a Billboard that “Tusa” is Colombian slang for heartache. In the catchy bop, the Colombian artist sings about a girl who thinks she’s over her ex but gets really sad whenever she hears the song that reminds her of him. Nicki’s rap verses, on the other hand, assures the ex that it’s his loss and now she’s moved on.
