Chacalosa is a popular Mexican word. It is an adjective with multiple meanings well known in the Latino community in the United States. It comes from the French word jackal that designates an animal of the canidae family and that is a scavenger.

From the meaning of origin, the different uses given to the word began to emerge. For this reason, like a jackal, a chacalous person is difficult to deal with because of his wild characteristics.


La Chacalosa is also the third studio album by singer Jenni Rivera. Thanks to this, the singer began to attract the attention of the Los Angeles public because the musical forms she used were only recorded by men.

In the lyrics of the chacalosa song it refers to someone who violates the legal norms. Although, going deeper into the lyrics, it could also designate someone who is difficult to deal with.
