On release day of his new album, Bad Bunny was streamed 183 million times on Spotify, beating Drake’s record of 176.8 million daily streams.
Puerto Rican rapper and singer Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, better known as Bad Bunny, recently dropped his fifth album Un Verano Sin Ti (“a summer without you”). As well as breaking the record as the most streamed artist in a single day, Bad Bunny saw all 23 tracks from the album in the top 30 of Spotify’s Daily Top Song Global Chart, with 9 in the top 10. Of course, none of this is surprising, with Bad Bunny being the most-streamed artist on Spotify in 2020 and 2021.
Spotify report, Bad Bunny now has over 35 billion total streams, by more than 344 million listeners. This new album’s release has pushed Bad Bunny above Ed Sheeran as the second most-streamed and estimated highest earning artist of all-time on Spotify, as well as the second biggest artist in the world.
The vibe in this album is so it can be your summer playlist. I personally see it like that album you play when you go on vacation to an island and you’re on the beach all day. Then you go back to your vacation resort and put it on while you’re getting ready to go for a late dinner with your friends. And on your way to that dinner you ask the driver to play the album again.
The album is very versatile, very Bad Bunny. But the versatility is different from the others; this one has different sounds—reggaeton, dembow, reggae influence, afro beats—and all of them relate to the Caribbean beats. They all feel happy and you want to dance to them.Bad Bunny told Spotify’s For the Record
