Destination Jam: Five essential Bad Bunny songs to listen to before 'El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo' arrives
Bad Bunny is set to drop his new album 'El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo' on November 27. There are also rumors that the reggaeton star might be retiring from the music industry after his new LP, and we're left feeling nostalgic. For fans who want to get their Bad Bunny fix before the album's release, today's Destination Jam is for you. Check out our top five most memorable Bad Bunny songs before 'El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo' below.
'Dákiti' with Jhay Cortez
We first treat you to a taste of 'El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo' with the album's lead single. This hot Bad Bunny track debuted on both the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot Latin Songs charts, at No. 9 and at No. 1, respectively, becoming the first song in history to do so. Additionally, the song then peaked at No. 8 on the Hot 100, and has topped the Billboard Global 200 for two weeks.
Dákiti is a slow-burner reggaeton song with lush, futuristic elements while the song's lyrics see Bad Bunny and collaborator Jhay Cortez aiming to win over their love interests by flaunting their luxurious lifestyles.
'Mia' featuring Drake
Move on to another epic collaboration titled 'Mia'. This infectious Bad Bunny song features rapper Drake and released in October 2018. The official music video, currently at 1.1 billion views on YouTube, is directed by Fernando Lugo and features the pair of collaborators at a block party. The 'Mia' visual garnered more than 12 million views on YouTube on its first day (a personal 24-hour record for Bad Bunny) and landed a No. 2 spot on YouTube's US Trending Videos chart. This is also the first track that Drake raps entirely in Spanish.
'Yo Perreo Sola'
Another Bad Bunny track with a viral music video, the clip for 'Yo Perreo Sola' was noted by Billboard as being the most viewed Latin music video in the world around the time of April 2020. This video shares a nod to the LGBTQIA+ community and makes a powerful statement on sexual harassment. While the singer is seen in drag, the 'Yo Perreo Sola' creative director, Stillz, said Bad Bunny "wanted to symbolize that men also care about women’s rights and that violence against women also affects us as men... he wanted to impact and take a message to the reggaeton community that usually is not as open to speak about the LGBTQ community."
A side-step from uptempo music, kick back with your headphones to this Bad Bunny slow jam. Opening in a darker balladic mood, 'Callaíta' then pops into a slow-to-midtempo Latin rhythm hard enough for dancing but soft enough for carefree listening. The track is about a girl who, despite being meek and quiet, lives a life free of inhibitions and hesitations, both in terms of herself and of people who criticize her.
'VETE' has impacted several prominent charts, including earning three No. 1 spots on charts like Billboard's US Hot Latin Songs, the US Latin Airplay chart, and the US Latin Rhythm Airplay chart. The song, with its title that translates to “leave,” is the perfect Latin song to make a breakup easier: 'VETE' is about a person who’s over his or her ex and is urging them to get out of their life.
