Bad Bunny Releases Debut Album 'X100pre'
"I didn’t want the year to end without releasing the album."
Bad Bunny has finally released his debut album. The latin trap artist dropped the new project, X100pre, on Christmas Eve (Dec. 24).
The project, which title translates to "Por Simepre" or "Forever" in English, includes 15 tracks with no features.
"Real, real, real, real, I finished the album three days ago," the Puerto Rican artist said to Billboard over the phone. "At that point I said I wanted to release it in Christmas. I didn’t want the year to end without releasing the album. I wanted to close 2018 with it."
The rapper also noted that he'd been working on the album for six months and only recently finished the song "Como antes [As Before]."
Despite this being Bad Bunny's first album release, the rapper has enjoyed a very eventful and chart-topping year. "I Like It," his collaboration with Cardi B and J. Balvin, topped the Billboard Hot 100. Also, tracks like "Te Boté" with Ozuna and Nicky Jam and "Mia" with Drake performed nicely on the mainstream market.
