If you’ve been following Bad Bunny since his baritone bops and impressive graphics first burst onto the scene, you probably know that the trap en español poster boy is the Latin music industry’s most prolific artist right now. On the heels of his collab with J Balvin and Prince Royce, which saw the light last week, Bad Bunny is gearing up for yet another release this Friday, one that’s perhaps even more momentous than the bachata-reggaeton-trap link-up of “Sensualidad.”
On Friday, November 10, Wisin will unveil his new single “Move Your Body,” featuring none other than El Conejo Malo and industry legend Timbaland. Bad Bunny and Wisin shared previews of the song on Instagram:
Back in May, gossip site Reggaeton Coming Soon published a video that suggests Maluma was originally featured on the song, though no guest verse is included in these Instagram teasers. Though the track is slated for release on Wisin’s upcoming solo album Victory, the collab is a savvy move for Bad Bunny, whose career has surged to meteoric heights since he first made his debut in 2016. It’s not 100 percent clear if the song is produced by Timbaland or simply features a guest verse, but the master producer’s presence is a sign of the times. Timbo is the architect of so many of today’s pop trends, and his lengthy and impactful career has found him working behind the boards with titans like Justin Timberlake, Aaliyah, Missy Elliott, and countless others. As Wisin embraces his role as reggaeton’s elder statesman and Bad Bunny carries the torch for a new generation of traperos, the collab is another step towards an open music market free of segmentation for Latino artists.
