Bad Bunny’s “Un Verano Sin Ti” Projected to Outsell Jack Harlow’s “Come Home the Kids Miss You”

On May 6 2022, two of the most highly anticipated albums of the year dropped to massive positive reactions. 2022 has seen a few major music releases so far, but modern rap and reggaeton fans stay eating in terms of hearing their favorite artists. Jack Harlow’s Come Home the Kids Miss You and Bad Bunny’s Un Verano Sin Ti released after massive waves of hype, however one seems to potentially reign supreme over the other.

Bad Bunny’s Un Verano Sin Ti broke Spotify’s first-day global streaming record, hitting 183 million streams upon its release (via Complex). This title was previously held by Drake who had 176.8 million. Also within its release day, 8 of Un Verano Sin Ti’s tracks held the Top 10 spot of Apple Music’s Top 100: USA chart.

Both albums respectively put out singles from the album to further increase excitement for the eventual release, proving to be ringing hits among listeners. Jack Harlow’s mainstream hip-hop beats and invigorating flow are displayed on tracks like “First Class,” “Churchill Downs,” and “Dua Lipa.” Emerging from the new wave of Puerto Rican reggaeton, Bad Bunny proves to be an outgoing yet romantic pristine musician alongside the talents of Jhay Cortez, Rauw Alejandro, and Chencho Corleone on the tracks “Party,” “Moscow Mule,” “Tarot,” and “Me Porto Bonito.”

It’s been less than a week since the album has been released, leaving a bit more room for possible changes in projections. Both artists seem to have promising futures in regards to their success, but in Bunny’s favor, 8 tracks on Top 10 and a new Spotify record is too hard to beat.
