Bad Bunny’s “Nadie Sabe lo que va a Pasar Mañana” (Album Review)

Paul Tointigh
Clay Edwards relaxes and listens to Bad Bunny’s latest album “Nadie Sabe lo que va a Pasar Mañana.”

“Nadie Sabe lo que va a Pasar Mañana” is the fifth solo studio album by Puerto Rican artist Bad Bunny released Friday, Oct. 13. The album runs just over 81 minutes and features 22 songs with guest appearances from 10 other artists sprinkled throughout the album.

The album’s name means “Nobody Knows What is Going to Happen Tomorrow” in English and is the subsequent album of “Un Verano Sin Ti” (“A Summer Without You”).

Kicking off the album is “Nadie Sabe,” a six-minute song that is a slow opener. The trap beat that Bad Bunny is known for drops in the second song, “Monaco,” and closes out as smoothly as the first song started.

The first guest on the album appears in the third song “Fina” as Young Miko takes the mic over the first half of the song, with the trap beat making me want to blast this on my Bluetooth speaker. The beat continues into the fourth song “Hibiki” (featuring Mora).

Finding its way onto my workout playlist was “Mr. October,” as the darker tone of the song with the accompanying piano made me want to warm up to bench press. I will be listening to this song the next time I find myself in Nobb’s.

The album has a pattern of fast and slow, as “Cybertuck” returns to a fast beat and “Vou 787” slows it back down, with Bad Bunny throwing in a few English words in these songs. Bad Bunny says “I don’t speak in English” in the latter. This chill vibe continues with the next two songs, “Seda” (featuring Bryant Myers) and “Gracias Por Nada” (“Thanks for Nothing”).

Chill goes out the window for the song number ten “Telefono Nuevo,” as it begins like a typical Bad Bunny song then it abruptly interrupted by the sounds of a landline phone that has been disconnected, with Luar La L entering the song to change the beat entirely into a rap beat. Hearing this for the first time, I thought it was rather unique.

“Baby Nueva” was catchy, while I didn’t care too much for “Mercedes Carota” (featuring YOVNGCHIMI).

The album chugs along with “Los Pits,” “Vuelve Candy B,” and “No Me Quiero Casar,” all which were okay, but nothing too spectacular in my opinion. Although the latter song did have a great synthesized beat that I listened to a couple of times.

“Where She Goes” is easily the most viewed song on the album, with the official music video having over 150 million views. I like the song, but I realized it sounds a bit like Drake’s “Hotline Bling” in some places, having the same notes as the chorus in that song. Perhaps that is why this song blew up.

Number 18 “Thunder & Lightning” strikes with a great beat and booming bass, while the next song, “Perro Negro,” returns to Bad Bunny’s status quo of trap.

The album winds down with a 12 second song, “Europa :(” before finishing out with two songs, “Acho PR” (featuring Arcangel, De La Ghetto, and Nengo Flow) and “Un Preview,” the album’s last song. “Acho PR” runs for exactly six minutes and gives off a mixture of crunk and trap, which makes for an interesting beat. “Un Preview” is exactly what Bad Bunny is about: Latin trap.

Overall, this album was well done. Although I would prefer his previous album “Un Verano Sin Ti” to this one, I can tell a lot of work was put into the production of this album. As a whole, the album does deliver, although at times it can sound a bit repetitive with the pacing of the album, especially with those back-to-back trap ones.

Bad Bunny held 22 spots on the Billboard top 100 during the last week of October, with “Monaco” topping at number five.

The Puerto Rican rapper will embark on the Most Wanted Tour in 2024 to promote this album, visiting various major cities in the United States as well as Toronto, Ontario.
