Bad Bunny vs Resident René
If we go to YouTube we find a very interesting silent fight (or not) between Bad Bunny and René de Residente, who released the most intimate, devastating song and sincere of his entire career almost at the same time that Bad Bunny released an album.
Bad Bunny has already released four video clips of songs taken from YHLQMDLG. First, ignorant, it has garnered 48 million clicks in two weeks. René, meanwhile, has achieved a similar figure (45 million views) in just five days of René.
Followed by the video of La difícil with 20 million views (released the same day YHLQMGLG premiered).

At least, in terms of QUANTITY.
Quality is already ANOTHER DEBATE.
As if that were not enough, all the songs of I do what I want They are also uploaded to YouTube in audio format. And as in Spotify, absolutely all of them are reaping views that number in the millions.
