Bad Bunny announces new album via classified car advert

Sixth album 'Un Verano Sin Ti' (A Summer Without You) is coming soon, according to a voicemail that plays a snippet of a new song

Bad Bunny has announced details of his sixth studio album via an advert for a supercar.

Earlier this week (April 21), the reggaeton star posted an ad for a Bugatti Chiron 110, released in 2019 to mark the 110th anniversary of the French car maker.

The ad, which appears in Clasificados Online, was posted under the superstar’s real name, Benito A. Martinez Ocasio. It listed the car for $3.5million (£2.7m) and left a phone number.

When fans called the number, a voicemail message played a snippet of an unreleased Bad Bunny song and a text message in Spanish was then sent to everyone who phoned up.

Translated into English, it read: “Hello! Thank you for calling. There’s little time left until the album comes out. I can’t say the date yet.”

“But I can tell you the name: ‘Un Verano Sin Ti’,” it added, with the title translating as ‘A Summer Without You’.

Later this year, Bad Bunny is set to head out on his first North and South American stadium tour, with dates beginning in August.

The tour – which the rapper is dubbing World’s Hottest Tour – will kick off in Orlando, Florida on August 5. From there, Bad Bunny will venture across North America through the month and all of September, before venturing into South America in October. Find full tour dates below. Appearing at different shows in support will be Alesso and Diplo.

In December, the rapper was declared the the world’s most-listened-to artist on Spotify for the second year running. The same month, he also surprised fans with a music video for ‘Te Deseo Lo Mejor’ made in collaboration with The Simpsons.
