"Mala Gente" is a song by Colombian singer-songwriter Juanes. The song is the third radio single from his second studio album, Un Día Normal. It shows his frustration with his soon-to-be ex-girlfriend who he calls "mala gente" ("evil people" or "evil woman"). She tells him that their romance is now over, and she wants to be friends. He believes her to be a liar, that she cannot be trusted, has played with his emotions and does not want to be friends. That she will come to regret this breakup. His prediction comes true.
