What does Bad Bunny’s Japanese lyrics translate to?

Bad Bunny, who usually sticks to his Latin trap roots in his songs, surprised his fans with his new abilities. The 27-year-old award-winning singer-songwriter’s new song is about how is trying to live his life as a single person as he tries his best to overcome his recent heartbreak with daily activities. With his vulnerable and emo lyrics, Bad Bunny also referred to Itachi who is a famous Anime character. In the second verse, he croons, “With you and a blunt, You look killer with those jeans/ You kill me without a gun, I’ll buy you a Banshee/ Gucci, Givenchy A poodle, a frenchie/ The weed, the "munchie"/ I’ll sing you a mariachi, I’ll turn into Itachi, huh”.

As the ‘Dakiti’ hitmaker wraps up his song, he switches to Japanese in the outro where he talks about how he only wants to have sex with the person he lost. According to Billboard, he lyrics in Japanese mean, “I want to have sex today, But only with you/ Where are you?, Where are you?/ I want to have sex today, But only with you/ Where are you? Where are you? Eh.”

In the video’s opening, he is seen singing the track’s introduction while eating sushi and sipping on a glass of wine in a restaurant alone. The visual quickly shifts to a montage of the artist getting ready and eating a hearty breakfast the next morning, before taking to the street with eight dogs on leashes. Bad Bunny then engages in a series of activities, including martial arts, controlling a toy car, playing video games, yoga and getting a “Pokémon GO” tattoo before he rolls up at a house party. The visual concludes with an animé-style recreation of the artist as he sings in Japanese for the final verse. This part of the video has fans totally floored.
