Bad Bunny Surprises With Release Of New Album ‘Las Que No Iban a Salir’ Extending His Reign As Reggaeton’s Leading Man
I know we’re all in quarantine and millions are still in lockdown. But Bad Bunny is making these super strange times a bit less horrible thanks so his constant stream of entertainment.
From his album ‘YHLQMDLG’, which he just released in March, to free concerts on Instagram Live and some seriously perfect Instagram stories – Bad Bunny is making sure we’re all well-stocked with Bad Bunny content during this pandemic.
And now, our beloved Conejo Malo kicked off his Mother’s Day celebration by dropping a collection of tracks – which were definitely teased during his next-level Instagram Live from last weekend – titled Las Que No Iban a Salir, or The [tracks] That Weren’t Going to be Released.
Las Que No Iban a Salir is just the latest in epic drops from the epic reggaetonero.
Just two months after the release of his last album, Bad Bunny is back with a surprise new album. It’s called Las Que No Iban a Salir. Among the guests on this surprise 10-track collection are: Zion & Lennox, Yandel, Don Omar, Nicky Jam, Jhay Cortez and his girlfriend, Gabriela Berlingeri.
The new album comes just two months after his sophomore album, YHLQMDLG, made history.
Bad Bunny released YHLQMDLG in March and it made history on the Billboard charts. YHLQMDLG debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, scoring the highest charting all-Spanish-language album ever.
Listeners have returned to the album consistently in the weeks since its release. YHLQMDLG hasn’t left the Top Ten, and its racked up nearly a billion streams in the U.S. alone. The album conquered old-school mediums as well as the digital world. “Yo Perreo Sola” and “La Dificil,” a pair of legit reggaeton singles, are both Top 20 on Latin radio this week.
There are some serious bops on this album. I’m already obsessed with ‘En Casita’!
“En Casita” (At Home) features his girlfriend Gabriela Berlingeri, who he has been quarantined with in his native Puerto Rico during the Coronavirus pandemic. Berlingeri who previously avoided the spotlight has been making frequent appearances on Bad Bunny’s social media channels.
Then there’s his SNL skit which was hilarious.
The Latin Grammy Award-winning artist made his debut on Saturday Night Live during their April 25 broadcast where Kenan Thompson played baseball star David Ortiz, better known as Big Papi. The skit titled “Big Papi’s Cooking Show” featured Bad Bunny as a character named Big Bunny ready to sell audiences pots and pans for any kitchen, as well as sweatpants.
Bad Bunny is living his best life during this pandemic and I am so grateful he’s helping us all cope with new music during these truly strange times.
