Bad Bunny’s new album, though a commercial success, is not as universally loved as his last one.

Benito Antonio Martinez Ocasio, 29, best known as Bad Bunny, is a Puerto Rican rapper and singer who has proven you don’t need to speak English to rule in the music world.

His new album, “nadie sabe lo que va a pasar mañana,” was released on Oct. 13, 2023.

According to Billboard, Bad Bunny was 2022’s top artist for the first time; Taylor Swift was number two on the list.

Bad Bunny won the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) global album award; he was the first Latin artist to do so. He also had the first Spanish-language album to be nominated for Album of the Year in the Grammy awards.

His breakthrough album “Un Verano Sin Ti” was also the most streamed album on Spotify. Bad Bunny had three years as the most-streamed artist in the world on Spotify in 2022. :Un Verano Sin Ti,” his most famous album in 2022, ended the year as the most streamed album globally and also the most streamed in the U.S.

Daniel Argueta, a junior from Guatemala, has become a fan of the new album.

“I think the new album is very good,” Daniel said. “It had a lot a lot of very good songs. Some of the new songs Bad Bunny just released have become my favorite new songs. I like the beat and the lyrics; the lyrics are very meaningful.”

Daniel prefers Bad Bunny’s older album because it was released in the summer.

“I like ‘Un Verano Sin Ti’ because it was a new version of Bad Bunny. He had never made music like the music he made on that album.” The “summer songs,” Daniel said, excited him the most.

Oscar Cui, a junior from Shanghai, enjoys Spanish songs because of the rhythm.

“‘Where She Goes,’ is a fire song, I like the beat although I don’t understand any single word, but the song is fire,” he said.

Oscar knew about Bad Bunny because of a popular song from 2018.

“I heard of Bad Bunny with Cardi B [and J Balvin] song called “I Like It,” Oscar said. “I also heard him [on the song ‘K-POP’] with Travis Scott and The Weeknd,” he said.

Calvin Klumpp, a senior day student, agrees with Daniel that the album is tied to the season.

Some of it, it’s very different. I didn’t know what to expect from it,” he said. “I really liked, ‘Un Verano Sin Ti,’ it was more my style. That one was a good mix between trap and fun summer music, but this one seems more like fitting of the season, this fall. Also I haven’t heard enough of it to give a judgment,” he said.

Calvin likes to listen to Spanish music for the rhythms, not necessarily the lyrics.

“If I look at the lyrics I understand a lot of it, but if I only listen to it I only understand some parts of it,” he said. “Even with English speaking artists, the lyrics aren’t that important to me.”

Sebastian Suchecki, a sophomore from Panama, didn’t enjoy all of the album but liked a few songs.

“The new album was not the best but it was fire, I really liked the flow of it and the dembow [a style of music that originated in Jamaica]. My favorite songs where is “LOS PITS Vou87” and “SEDA.”

Sebastian, unlike Daniel and Calvin, thinks Bad Bunny came back strong with this new album.

“‘Un Verano Sin Ti’ was not a good one to be honest,” he said. “It was not his style, but this one he came back and he went crazy.”
