Bad Bunny reflects on the passage of time on his new song “De Museo.”
This is the Puerto Rican star’s latest single, following “Yonaguni” from last month. “De Museo” is a laid-back trip through Latin trap, with Bad Bunny measuring the man he is now against the (less well-paid) man he used to be. “Pasa el tiempo y yo sigo aquí/ Un hermano no se traiciona, la familia nunca abandona,” he sings, which could be translated to, “Time passes and I’m still here/ A brother doesn’t betray, family never abandons.”
He does catch himself aging, rapping, “El tiempo pasa, pasa y no se detiene/ Ya me estoy poniendo viejo y ayer era un nene” (“Time passes, it passes and it doesn’t stop/ I’m already getting old and yesterday I was a little kid”), but he doesn’t see himself as diminished. The title refers to a museum, and like a car you might find on display, Bad Bunny is both classic and timeless. He spits, “La calle está que pela/ Siempre andamo’ en el joseo/ La máquina e’ de museo,” which means, “The streets are cold/ We’re always in the hustle/ The car is from a museum.” Check out “De Museo” below.
Last year, Bad Bunny dropped three albums: El Último Tour del Mundo, YHLQMDLG, and Que No Iban a Salir. He’ll finally get a chance tour in support of those records next year, with his 2022 “El Último Tour del Mundo” tour. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster or on the secondary market here.
