Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, better known as Bad Bunny, has published a new music video for his song “BATICANO”. The singer used the Halloween day, the night of October 31 to release a terrifying music video on his YouTube channel.
The song “BATICANO” is originally from his latest album “Nadie sabe lo que va a pasar mañana”, published last October 13.
On this album Bad Bunny shows his more personal side and share his deep thoughts about topics like love, money, fame and parties. Besides that, he tried to please his oldest fans who know him since the trap eras. Benito decided to make a throwback album where he returns to his “original” version and leaves the reggaeton music to do something less commercial and risky.
On the album we can listen to 22 songs that drives you through the emotions and will surely make you empathize with the Puerto-Rican artist. Furthermore than his voice, you can get surprised by artist like Arcangel, Bryan Mayers, Eladio Carrión o Young Miko.
He had only published two songs out of the 22 that the album has. Whenever, “where she goes” and “Un preview” didn’t show the rhythm and the line that the album follows, so it was a big surprise for the fans that listened to it without knowing that.
On the 1h21 that the album lasts Bad Bunny open his heart and experiment with the sounds. In fact, the music is characterized for the minimalistic production and the trap sound mixed with deep and personal lyrics. There are only two reggaeton songs, that was with the music he reached the top on the music world.
The album closes with one of them, “Un preview”. If we put some attention on the lyrics of the song we can read “to show you a preview of what is coming next”. The fans have speculated that a new reggaeton album is on the way and he left this song the last one on the album for a reason.
On the song “BATICANO”, wrote with b and not with “V” like the Vatican, he denounces during 4 minutes and 16 seconds the hypocrisy on the religious world. “No man on Earth have the right of judging on Jesu’s name” On the lyrics he talks about that people that criticizes his songs and his life but doesn’t stop a minute to look at themselves, they just opinate on other one’s lives.
On the music video Bad Bunny returns to the first horror movies like “Drácula”. The black and white palette drowns you on a cinematic world when Benito performs as Nosferatu. He takes the character to the German film directed by Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau 101 years ago.
On the video, he moves through different scenarios recreating part of the film but also doing social critic. For example a boy sits with his father on the sofa and on the television there are a video of two guys kissing and the parent closes his son’s eyes.
The video has now more that 3 million views and has created an authentic revolution with his fans over the social media.
