Bad Bunny has revealed that his new album, Un Verano Sin Ti, is coming out on May 6, and that it will feature collaborations with Buscabulla, the Marias, Bomba Estereo, Rauw Alejandro, Jhay Cortez, Chencho Corleone, and Tony Dize. He shared details of the album on social media with a graphic showing 23 songs split between Side A and Side B.

Speculation on the followup to 2020’s El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo intensified on April 21, when a mysterious ad popped up on a Puerto Rican classifieds website, listing a Bugatti Chiron being sold by a Benito A. Martinez Ocasio (better known as Bad Bunny). Fans quickly discovered that when they called the number listed on the site, they heard a snippet of a song and received a text moments later that said his new album is called Un Verano Sin Ti (A Summer Without You).

The text, signed by Bad Bunny himself, reads: “Hello! 🙂 Thank you for calling. There’s only a little time left until the album comes out. I still can’t say the date, but I can tell you the name: Un Verano Sin Ti.” People began poring over the phone number Bad Bunny sent the text from and the details in the ad to see if it revealed any clues about the drop date.

Earlier this spring, El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo won a Grammy award for Best Musica Urbana Album. The Puerto Rican artist didn’t attend the ceremony because he was ending the El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo tour that night by playing his final show in Miami. After the performance, he teased his next album, writing on Twitter, “Yesterday I finished a stage of my career in the best way possible: Closing the tour of El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo and winning the Grammy with that same album.” He then shared that he had finished his new album and that he was ready to release it soon.

Although the tour has kept him busy, Bad Bunny did join Daddy Yankee for “X Ultima Vez,” one of the standouts on the Reggaeton veteran’s final album, Legendaddy.

UPDATE 5 p.m. May 4: This story has been updated to reflect the album’s release date and collaborations.
