Some would argue Central American artists breathed new life into Trap production when they introduced specifically Latin elements to the mix. One of the artists leading the charge has been Bad Bunny. His appeal to North American audiences goes back farther than his cameo on Cardi B’s “I Like It.” Bad Bunny was able to coax Ric Flair into appear in a music video, letting him strut, and ultimately playing second fiddle to the legendary wrestler.
Not to be outdone by anyone this go-around, Bad Bunny delivers “Estamos Bien,” a melodic Spanish-language blammer with gauzy undertones. The accompanying music video certainly does the title justice in terms of conveying a message of positivity. Bad Bunny wakes up, brushes his hair, and files out with his friends in a drop top convertible, the home video aesthetic a logical choice for a summer vacay if you will.
Bunny was rumored to be cooking up new music with Drake, but as of now the raw materials are still sitting on a desktop. Just to give you a fair idea of how big Bad Bunny’s star has risen in America, this video has already accrued 4.5 million views in under a day.
