Is Eminem Why ‘Mi Bebito Fiu Fiu’ Was Taken Down From Streaming Services?

Is Eminem Why ‘Mi Bebito Fiu Fiu’ Was Taken Down From Streaming Services?

"Mi Bebito Fiu Fiu" has taken over social media, but the creator has decided to take it off streaming services. Is Eminem behind this move?

A few weeks after enjoying viral success, the song “Mi Bebito Fiu Fiu” has officially been removed from streaming services. Contrary to popular belief, Eminem did not go after the Peruvian acts Tito Silva and Tefi C with a lawsuit. Silva decided to remove the song from Spotify because of its political tone.


Silva and Tefi C created “Mi Bebito Fiu Fiu” from alleged leaked Whatsapp chat conversations between Peru’s ex-president Martín Vizcarra and his alleged lover Zully Pinchi. In the alleged Whatsapp convo, Pinchi referred to Vizcarra as her “Bebito Fiu Fiu,” where the song got its title.

The tricky part about “Mi Bebito Fiu Fiu” was that it borrowed the melody from Eminem’s “Stan” and, in turn, Dido’s “Thank You,” which Eminem sampled. There was speculation about whether “Mi Bebito Fiu Fiu” counted as a parody song that wouldn’t have to owe royalties to the original song’s owners. The haters of the viral song were hoping that Eminem, Dido, or their teams would eventually sue Silva and Tefi C over royalties for “Mi Bebito Fiu Fiu.”

“Mi Bebito Fiu Fiu” recently went to No. 1 on Spotify’s global Viral 50 chart. Bad Bunny also sang a few lines of the song during his recent Instagram livestream. As of last night (July 7), the song has officially been removed from streaming platforms like Spotify. Silva explained his reasoning for removing the song in an Instagram post. He said it was more of a personal choice that didn’t involve any lawsuit.


“I will explain to you what has happened,” he said. “First of all, please calm down. We have already had a super cool conversation with the people who manage the rights to the original song. Let’s say that this is not about a copyright issue. They understand that it is a parody, but it is a parody with a Peruvian political context, and I imagine it may cause them some discomfort. I understand it, and I share the concern. And for that reason, the song is no longer available on streaming platforms, and I also decided to remove it from my social networks.”

With all the exposure he received from “Mi Bebito Fiu Fiu,” Silva added that the song’s success has inspired him to keep pushing forward with his music. “In any case, there is no lawsuit or anything like that. All this for me is an apprenticeship and a starting point to do much bigger things,” he concluded.
