Five Things We Learned From Bad Bunny’s ‘Un Verano Sin Ti’

Elaborate album rollouts usually aren’t Bad Bunny‘s style — most of his projects have dropped into the universe in an unexpected, last-minute burst of chaos,

His latest, Un Verano Sin Ti, has been a little different: The Puerto Rican singer started posting playful Instagram videos in January that extended a running gag about him leaving his girlfriend 

Gabriela Berlingeri with the handsome Spanish actor Mario Casa all summer so he could work on new songs. 

 From there, he kept sharing short clips of Casa and Berlingeri hanging out together while he cranked out music on bright tropical beaches 

He finally dropped Un Verano Sin Ti last night. It’s his longest album yet, with 23 songs, but also his most mellow and carefree. 

“People, we have to worry less and enjoy more because life goes too fast,” he said in one of the first Instagram videos that showed Berlingeri and Casa.

The album is often as leisurely as a beach vacation, blending gentle dembow beats and twinkling production with sudden twists of mambo, house, and reggae.
