San Juan, (EFE) .- Puerto Rican Bad Bunny, the most listened to artist on music platforms, premiered this Friday his album “Un Verano Sin Ti”, which he describes as “the happiest” he has done in his career.
Composed of 23 songs, the album has numerous collaborations- “Tarot”, with Jhayco; “Party”, with Rauw Alejandro; “I Porto Bonito”, with Chencho Corleone; “La Corriente”, together with Tony Dize; “Andrea”, together with Buscabulla; “Otro Atardecer”, with the group The Marías, and “Ojitos Lindos”, with the Colombians Bomba Estéreo.
“This album is an idea I had two years ago. A lot of people would think it’s a sad album, but it’s not. It’s good vibes, lots of partying and happiness. I think it’s the happiest album of my career,” Bad Bunny said in an interview with Apple Music 1 radio station.
“When I have a good idea that I want to work on in the future, I keep it until that moment,” added Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, the real name of the urban performer.
Regarding collaborations, Bad Bunny stressed that they are artists he respects- “I like their music and they inspire me,” he said.

“They are people -he continued- who make music that I listen to every summer. They are part of my summer vibe and summer playlist. So it’s a very special album.”
According to a press release, in “Un Verano Sin Ti” Bad Bunny presents his new musical stage, where he challenges his own creative abilities and finds a new versatility that transcends into unexplored areas of his talent.
Among the music producers who worked on this album, recorded in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, were Puerto Ricans Tainy and MAG, as well as Bad Bunny’s recording engineer, Beto “La Paciencia.”
MAG produced the first track on the album, “Moscow Mule”, a sultry reggaeton that Bad Bunny admitted must be his favorite on the album because “it reflects that mood of last summer”.
Fluctuating from reggaeton and Dominican dembow, mambo and merengue, to influences from reggae, pop, indie, rock and afrobeats, all the songs refer to the same base – the sounds inspired by the rhythms of the Caribbean.
Likewise, each song expresses a journey of emotions that alludes to some of the most memorable experiences behind each of the summers that Bad Bunny has enjoyed in his life, the statement specifies.
“Un Verano Sin Ti” is Bad Bunny’s fifth solo album, after “X 100pre” (2018), “YHLQMDLG” (2020), “Las Que No Iban a Salir” (2020) and “El Último Tour Del World” (2020).
This new album comes after the Puerto Rican artist finished his “El Último Tour Del Mundo” tour in the United States, and before the start of his next “World’s Hottest Tour” on August 5 in Orlando, Florida (USA). .
In addition to his musical career, Bad Bunny awaits the premiere of the film “Bullet Train”, in which he acts alongside the well-known American actor Brad Pitt, and the next Marvel film, “El Muerto”, a production derived from the acclaimed saga of Spider-Man.
