Bad Bunny – Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana (Nobody Knows What Will Happen Tomorrow) 

Bad Bunny’s Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana (Nobody Knows What Will Happen Tomorrow) is a step away from its predecessor, Un Verano Sin Ti, but sounds like a step in the right direction. Taking inspiration from sounds like Jersey club, electronic music and dembow, the 22-track album leaves fans to wonder how else the Puerto Rican star can elevate his music from here.
