First teased on Ebro Darden’s Beats 1 show in 2018, the surprise joint album builds on the breakthrough moment of their contributions to Cardi B’s megahit “I Like It,” pushed along by a healthy dose of mutual admiration.“It was like, ‘We have to do something,’” Bad Bunny says of the urgency in the wake of the chart-topping bilingual smash. "Qué Pretendes" was released as the lead single with a video alongside the album, being later followed by "La Canción, "Yo Le Llego", and "Cuidao por Ahí".

The fact that J Balvin and Bad Bunny do this without any massively obvious single track (the upbeat pop of “Que Pretendes” is as close to the charting reggaeton as you’ll hear here) and are willing to give themselves over to new experiences shows the utter joyfulness and boyish glee of this album. I had a couple of ukulele loops. I’d be lying if I thought when I finished that this was going to be huge. I told him it’s something I haven’t heard from him before — something that he should keep on doing.

The rest was mixing it and going back and forth on the details. Millions of people are going to listen to that project, hear that bounce. Rather than offer caucasian audiences lyrical signposts to what they’re thinking, Balvin and Bunny make you come to them, with only a shared sense of explosive, downright experimental musicality and almost brutally propulsive rhythm.

When we were finishing that, this [project] popped up. Sky heard it and was like, “Yo, I have a chorus for that.” So I was like, “Ok, I’ll keep working on it.”.

I think he learned things about himself that he probably didn’t know.

I was just trying stuff. His concept is so strong, always.
Urbano contains multitudes. Tainy: I was working on an idea for Balvin at the beginning. I really like the CD, these two artists are so good, you should buy it! Nice job JB&BB! Though Balvin is usually the crooner of the two, Bunny lets it all hang out, vocally, on “La Cancion,” where his role as a grand balladeer is heightened, and his devotion to the notion of song itself is as sturdy as it is sacred.

But to have these two collaborate on a full eight-song album of their own (with but two notable guests, Nigerian vocalist Mr. Eazi and Marciano Cantero from Argentina’s Enanitos Verde) is as crucial to the currency of world music, global pop and urbano as having Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande team up would be for American pop.

He always felt it needed a trumpet to get to where he had it in his mind. Producers Sky Rompiendo el Bajo, Balvin’s go-to beat-maker in Medellín, and Tainy, a vet groomed by the history-making production duo Luny Tunes, deliver a seamless blend of radio-ready trap beats and white-hot, unpredictable reggaeton and dembow confections.
