It’s a dying shame Bad Bunny is only now shedding his image in North America to reflect his “Trap” provenance. The Puerto Rican “Trap King” has orchestrated his comeuppance in a strange order of sequence which saw him receive a Grammy Nomination before the release of his debut LP X100pre. So within the high propensity that his music is consumed in Spanish-speaking countries, we ourselves covering a song with nearly 4 million views on YouTube in under 5 days. So where’s does he go from here on out?
On “La Romano,” Bad Bunny enlists the reigning “King of Dembow” from closeby Dominican Republican, himself part of the Latinx exchange to the Bronx incurred by Cardi B as she re-established her latin groove. The song is noted for a beat switch at the 2:25 in which the “Trap” typeset is replaced by a typically fast-paced “Dembow” beat with fluty ornamentation. In theory, “La Romano” is comprised of all the elements it would take to get a real mixer started.
