Bad Bunny dropped a surprise single on Tuesday — a trap song about staying humble and loyal through his swift trajectory towards stardom. In Spanish, he sings about being grateful as time passes and problems come and go, thanking God and his late friends for backing him on the journey.
The toned-down release of “De Museo,” was apt given its themes. The Latin artist bypassed promoting the track on his social media and instead quietly uploaded it to streaming platforms until fans caught on.
“De Museo,” which roughly translates to “Museum,” was first heard as the credits rolled in last month’s release of F9, the ninth main installment in the Fast and Furious franchise. While the song wasn’t listed on the official tracklist, Bad Bunny teased its eventual unveiling in an interview with W Magazine in May.
The artist also recently made history in early June with “Yonaguni,” named after an island in Japan. In his first release following the delivery of his third studio album El Último Tour Del Mundo, the single’s No.1 spot broke the record for the most top 10 tracks on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart, beating out Enrique Igelesias and Luis Miguel, with whom Bad Bunny was previously tied.
