As promised, Bad Bunny dropped off his third studio album Yo Hago Lo Que Me Da La Gana on Saturday. We know: It's not the typical day for a music release; however, as the album's title suggests, Bad Bunny does whatever he wants.
The Puerto Rican artist announced YHLQMDLG's release Thursday night after weeks of teasers and Easter eggs. Bad Bunny also unveiled the album's official cover art and 20-song tracklist via Instagram—confirming guest appearances by Daddy Yankee, Sech, Mora, Yaviah, and more.
"My job is what I’m passionate about. I simply do what fulfills me," Bad Bunny told Entertainment Tonight about the album's title. "I try to please people. I try to please myself. [I try] to be genuine and do what I want to do. I try not to have any limits. The fact that people connect with me and are inspired by me, para mi es super cabrón."
YHLQMDLG marks Bad Bunny's first solo album since his 2018 debut X 100pre and his first full-length release since last year's OASIS with J Balvin.
"It's an honor for me to represent urban music, reggaetón, trap and hip-hop," he told ET. "If you've listened to my [first] album, you know it has a bit of everything. It's an album that I did with a lot of love. I tried to give the world a bit of creativity, lyrics. And for me, I will always represent music from Puerto Rico, reggaetón, Latin music."
During an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music, Bad Bunny described the process of making the album in Miami.
“I was in Miami having fun, you know, going to the club, strip club. (laughs) So, I um- the whole album was made in a good mood, in a happy mood.”
Bad Bunny also released the video for "Si Veo a Tu Mamá," which you can check out below.
