Bad Bunny is never one to take a break.
In the last three years, the Grammy-winning reggaeton star has released four groundbreaking albums: X 100pre, YHLQMDLG, El Último Tour Del Mundo, and his joint collaborative album with J Balvin, Oasis. Now, the rapper, born Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, has just confirmed that another full-length project is officially on the way.
Bad Bunny announced the news in his first ever Instagram Reel shared on the social media platform featuring the rapper and his real-life girlfriend, model and jewelry designer Gabriela Berlingeri, on an alfresco date night. In the same clip, the Puerto Rican superstar adds that he'll be embarking on a global stadium tour beginning in August. The announcement comes on the heels of the superstar's El Último Tour Del Mundo Tour, which sold out in just 24 hours last year—and grossed a whopping $84 million, per People.
The rapper's upcoming project will be hotly anticipated. He was named Spotify's most-streamed artist in both 2020 and 2021, with hits like "Yonaguni" being streamed a total of 9.1 billion times just last year.
Below, everything we know so far about the musician's upcoming album. Watch this space for updates.
In a clip shared on Instagram, Bad Bunny confirmed that his new album, Un Verano Sin Ti, will release on Friday, May 6.
Bad Bunny originally shared with the fans his next album's official title in an non-traditional way. After sharing a hotline number that the public could text or call, Bad Bunny revealed that his anticipated project would be called Un Verano Sin Ti (A Summer Without You). If fans called the number, they could also hear a snippet of an unnamed new song that will likely be the superstar's first single off the album.
Days before Un Verano Sin Ti's release, Bad Bunny released the album's official artwork and tracklist featuring a staggering 23 tracks. The project also includes a number of collaborations from fellow musicians including Rauw Alejandro, Jhay Cortez, The Marias, Bomba Estereo and more.
Bad Bunny will be on the road for most of 2022 as he embarks on both the El Último Tour Del Mundo and World's Hottest Tour this year. Tickets for his U.S. and Latin America stadium tour are on sale now..
Bad Bunny's latest project is undisputedly the record of the summer. On its release day, he became the most streamed artist globally on Spotify with 183 million streams in a single day (a record previously held by Drake). It's also become the longest reigning (and only) all-Spanish language album to sit atop the Billboard 200 chart and thus far has remained at the number one spot on and off for seven weeks.
You can stream the new album on Apple Music now.
