On Valentine’s Day, Bad Bunny released a music video for his Bomba Estéreo-assisted single “Ojitos Lindos” (Feb. 14)
In typical Bad Bunny manner, the Puerto Rican musician, who had been on a social media break, unannounced and unpreparedly released the video.
Tuesday afternoon, he uploaded the song video to his YouTube channel. In the video, directed by his longtime collaborator Stillz, Bad Bunny is depicted dating various types of women, living his “ideal” single life. Even if he’s smiling on these dates, none of them can compare to his special girlfriend with “beautiful little eyes,” as the reggae song puts it.
At the conclusion of the tape, the artist drops off his dates and speeds away, implying that he cannot get over his ex. He then crashes and awakens in a hospital bed, where none of his female friends visit him, only a cute beagle, who ultimately brings him happiness.
On his TikTok site, Bunny posted many videos of the beagle puppy he shares with Gabriela Berlingeri. (It is unclear whether the couple is still dating.)
“Ojitos Lindos” successfully fuses the musical worlds of Bunny and Bomba, living on cool reggae beats and edgy urban melodies blended with Li’s high-pitched vocals and Bunny’s deep, slurred verses.

The song reached No. 7 on the Hot Latin Songs chart of Billboard and was nominated for record of the year at the 2022 Latin Grammys.
Bad Bunny came close to making history with his record-breaking album “Un Verano Sin Ti” at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday. Before losing to “Harry’s House” by Harry Styles, “Un Verano Sin Ti” was poised to become the first Spanish-language album to win the top prize in the history of the Recording Academy. ABBA, Adele, Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige, Brandi Carlile, Coldplay, Kendrick Lamar, Lizzo, and Harry Styles were also nominated for album of the year. But he did not return home empty-handed.
“Un Verano Sin Ti” knocked out Latin urban music superstar Daddy Yankee as well as Farruko, Maluma, and Rauw Alejandro to win the prize for best msica urbana album. The performer also lit up the Grammy stage with his opening set. Bad Bunny recreated iconic scenes from Puerto Rico’s most popular street event, Las Fiestas de la Calle San Sebastián, set to the traditional music of bomba y plena.
The medley featured excerpts from his songs “El Apagón,” which mixes Puerto Rican folklore rhythms with electronic dance music, and “Después de la playa,” an upbeat mambo piece. Dancing beside Bad Bunny were “cabezudos.” Performers at Las Fiestas de la Calle San Sebastián traditionally don costumes with enormous heads to symbolize historical individuals who have contributed to Puerto Rican culture.
“Un Verano Sin Ti” was a critically lauded album that debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart upon its release and spent 13 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 – the longest weeks at No. 1 since 2016. Bad Bunny’s fourth studio album, “Un Verano Sin Ti,” was the second Spanish-language album to top the chart. The previous studio album by Bad Bunny was titled “El ltimo Tour Del Mundo.”
Bad Bunny also broke the record for the most grossing tour in a calendar year in 2022, when his “World’s Hottest Tour” and “El ltimo Tour del Mundo” grossed $435,3 million with over 2.4 million tickets sold across 81 concerts and a total gross of $435,3 million.
