10 Essential Tracks on Bad Bunny’s ‘El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo’: Staff Picks

Recorded in Puerto Rico, Los Angeles, Mexico, El Ultimo Tour del Mundo was born during the Coronavirus pandemic. Below, check out 10 essential tracks as recommended by Billboard Latin editors Griselda Flores and Jessica Roiz.

“Te Mudaste”

Though Bad Bunny took a different melodic route on his new album, “Te Mudaste” stays true to the essence of reggaeton. Towards the end, the beat completely transforms into an instrumental synthwave ’80s pop sound. Singing about the last time they made love and all the good times they had together, the nostalgic lyrics are about a person reminiscing about a long lost love.

Stepping away from his ultra perreo and reggaeton sound YHLQMDLG, “Maldita Pobreza” is
