Bad Bunnyis doing whatever he wants, including releasing a new surprise album…
The 25-year-old Puerto Rican Latin trap and reggaeton singer released YHLQMDLG, which stands for “Yo hago lo que me da la gana,” on Saturday at midnight.
The title is a testament to what Bad Bunny’s fans love about him. From redefining men’s fashion to his outspokenness about Puerto Rican politics, Bad Bunny has always stayed true to himself.
“My job is what I’m passionate about. I simply do what fulfills me,” Bad Bunny told Entertainment Tonight, ahead of the album drop. “I try to please people. I try to please myself.”
The sprawling 20-track album includes an all-star lineup of guest stars, including Daddy Yankee, Ñengo Flow, Sech and Jowell y Randy— as well as uncredited vocals by Arcángel, Anuel AA and Myke Towers. The song “Bichiyal” also features a surprise comeback from Puerto Rican cult favorite, Yaviah.
Said Bad Bunny of the new album on Twitter Friday afternoon: “Les recomiendo que esta noche se reunan con sus amistades y seres queridos, compren cervezas, tengan el surtido correcto para toda la noche y la pasen cabrón escuchando mi álbum.” In short, the album goes down best with a few beers and your best buddies.
Bad Bunny’s star has been on the meteoric rise since 2018. After he dropped his debut album X 100pre, which won best urban music album at the Latin Grammys, he released an album with J Balvin the very next year, Oasis.
