Bad Bunny breaks another record on Spotify

The new album ‘A summer without you’ has reached 183.2 million streams, surpassing Drake’s 176.8 million views.
Bad Bunny returned with new music and he did it as always: in a big way and breaking records. The Puerto Rican singer fulfilled his promise to finish his “The last tour of the world” to surprise his fans again with his new album called “A summer without you.”

This new album by Bad Bunny is made up of 23 songs and has outstanding collaborations such as Jhay Cortez, Tony Dize, Rauw Alejandro, Bomba Estéreo and The Marías. A job that lasts just over an hour and twenty minutes that Spotify took by storm.

So much so, that Bad Bunny broke the all-time record for single-day streams for an artist in Spotify history on May 6. This record was previously held by Drake with 176.8 million views. Well, last Friday, Benito Martínez Ocasio registered with 183.2 million transmissions.

With Bad Bunny’s dominance on streaming platforms, his Latin colleagues can only congratulate and laugh at the Puerto Rican’s achievement with ‘A summer without you’. This is the case of Sebastián Yatra.

The Colombian occupied his streaming account to share a fun reflection. The voice of ‘Red Heels’ wrote: “Tip to be a singer and happy in 2022: never compare yourself to Bad Bunny.” The publication has more than 9 thousand likes and more than 300 comments:

One of the 23 songs on Bad Bunny’s new album, under the name “Andrea”, has gone viral among netizens and on social networks, but not many people know the real reason for the lyrics.

Many fans praise this song for the meaning of female empowerment that its lyrics contain, as well as a call to raise awareness about gender violence. As for the video clip, it is recorded with a 360º camera on a beach.

Despite the positive comments on the different social platforms about this song, the harsh reality is that this hit is titled “Andrea” because of Andrea Ruiz’s femicide case in Puerto Rico. This event generated a wave of indignation in the Puerto Rican country.

Andrea’s case, which occurred between March and May 2021 in the Cayey region, was very controversial in Puerto Rico, since, as in many cases of femicide in Latin America, it evidenced institutional indifference to violence against women.

She unsuccessfully denounced on two occasions who is presumed to be her murderer, Miguel Ocasio, a 40-year-old former security agent with whom she had an eight-year relationship and who, when it ended, began to harass her at her home and her worked.

The second time that Andrea asked the authorities for protection was on March 26, when she declared that Ocasio had attacked her with a knife and threatened to spread intimate images of her. Despite this, she was allegedly denied any kind of help and it was ruled out to issue an arrest warrant against her aggressor.

On April 30 of that same year, the body of the 35-year-old was found burned in a garbage can on a highway. It was Miguel Ocasio himself who confessed to the crime and turned himself in to the authorities.
