The song’s new coronation follows its command on the Latin Rhythm Airplay chart, for a third week in charge.

“Un Preview” rises to the summit on Latin Airplay with 10.3 million audience impressions earned in the U.S. during the November 17-23 tracking week, according to Luminate.

That’s a 14% gain from the week prior, which sends Myke Towers’ “LaLa” to No. 6, after two weeks atop, with 16% dip, to 7.8 million impressions.

As “Un Preview” takes the lead, Bad Bunny earns his 23rd champ, thus tying with Maluma for the fifth-most No. 1s overall, since Latin Airplay began in 1994.

36, J Balvin
33, Ozuna
32, Enrique Iglesias
28, Daddy Yankee
23, Bad Bunny

The new No. 1 also continues Bad Bunny’s chart-topping achievements as a soloist.

Among his 23 champs, “Un Preview” becomes his eighth solo leader, unaccompanied by any other act. Further, it’s the third No. 1 song as a soloist with an English-language title, after “Moscow Mule” and “Where She Goes” topped Latin Airplay for one week on July 2022 and last August, respectively.

Bad Bunny Announces Plans to Release New Album “Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va A Pasar Mañana” This Week

Nobody may know what’s happening tomorrow, but Bad Bunny has an idea what will happen this Friday.

The 29-year-old Puerto Rican superstar has released a special teaser video to announce that he’ll release his next album, Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va A Pasar Mañana, this Friday, October 13.

Bad BunnyThe announcement comes only two weeks after releasing his record-extending reggaeton single “Un Preview” — and telling his more than 15 million followers on his WhatsApp Channel that “this is possibly the last song I release this year. It’s a little preview of what’s to come next year”.

But on Monday, October 9, the “Yo Perreo Sola” singer told his nearly 50 million Instagram followers that “el día más esperado por muchos ya llegó…”

In the video, Bad Bunny is seen swarmed by paparazzi before entering a fancy restaurant and being greeted by a gentleman who says, “Don Benito, it’s so nice to see you.”

Bad Bunny, looking dapper in a black suit, white sunglasses and showing off his newly shaved head, smiles and shakes his hand, before the album title and date are revealed.

The global star — who won seven 2023 Billboard Latin Music Awards including artist of the year last week— first teased fans on his X account on Sunday (October 8), revealing that 22 tracks are on the set. Next to each number is the word

“Fuego,” hinting that each song is fire. This was the same strategy he used in May 2022 ahead of his Un Verano Sin Ti album release, when each number had the word “PALO” next to it, which loosely translated to “hit.”

The set will come out this Friday, Oct. 13. Fans can already pre-save the album here.

Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va A Pasar Mañana marks Bad Bunny’s fifth solo studio album.

He previously released X100PRE (2018), YHLQMDLG (2020), El Último Tour Del Mundo (2020), Un Verano Sin Ti (2022).  He also previously released a joint album with J Balvin, Oasis in 2019.

Bad Bunny Releases New Single “Un Preview”

Bad Bunny is offering a preview

The 29-year-old Puerto Rican Grammy-winning superstar has released his new single, the reggaetón banger “Un Preview.”

Bad BunnyOn the track, Bad Bunny is smitten, singing about a girl that has him head over heels.

“Baby, I’m no longer scared of tasting you and falling in love again … we’re crazy at the club, I get closer to you dancing, and I kiss your neck, with you, I’ll deal with fire.”

At the beginning of the music video, which has a cowboy aesthetic, Bad Bunny explains that this song, as its name would suggest, is just a preview of what’s to come. “Ven acá,” he begins. “I’ll give you a preview of what will come after.” He expanded on that message on his WhatsApp channel where he wrote: “This is possibly the last song I release this year. It’s a little preview of what’s to come next year.”

Bad Bunny officially confirmed the release date of his new song on Sunday, when he posted a 17-second snippet and wrote in Spanish, “In case you like it and are interested to know, [the song] comes out tomorrow Monday at 8 p.m. Puerto Rico time.”

“Un Preview,” produced by Tainy and La Paciencia, comes on the heels of Bunny’s “Where She Goes,” which he released in May. The Jersey Club-inspired beat (a hybrid of house and hip-hop) reached No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 and Latin Airplay charts.

Earlier this year, Bunny also teamed up with Grupo Frontera on “un x100to,” which marked his first time dipping his toes in the norteño-cumbia realm. The song earned Grupo Frontera its highest debut on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart, entering at No. 3 on the April 29-dated ranking, and later hitting No. 1 on both the Latin Airplay chart and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart.

Bad Bunny is a 15-time finalist at the 2023 Billboard Latin Music Awards, which are set to take place on Thursday, October 5. He is up for artist of the year, tour of the year, Global 200 Latin artist of the year and Global 200 Latin song of the year for “Titi Me Preguntó.”
