Residente & Bad Bunny Drop Inclusive New Video for “Bellacoso” in the Era of Perreo Combativo

Coming off their surprise hip-hop protest anthem with iLe, comes what could possibly be the most awaited reggaeton junte we’ve seen in urbano in years – a perreo collaboration between Residente and Bad Bunny. “Bellacoso” is the first single from René Perez Joglar’s (better known as Residente) upcoming yet-to-be-titled sophomore album. “This is the first reggaeton that I’m doing since a long time ago. It’s not because I don’t like reggaeton, but because I like a lot of different types of music and I never wanted to be part of a wave. I wanted to become an artist myself, by my own achievements,” Residente tells Remezcla. “Bellacoso” brings back memories of early Calle 13 with nonstop bar spitting, dwelling debaucherously in lyrics that are catchy, fun and foot-thumping. 

Both artists bring more than their share of rhymes to the table. The song was developed using the frequencies of their brain waves. “Everything is part of a concept. I’m working with scientists on this project,” shares Residente, “I’m working with the brain, and working with everything that’s inside my brain.” René explains how by using the frequencies captured by the rapper’s brain waves, they were able to develop the base of the song, which they later added additional melodic elements to the beat to produce not only “Bellacoso” but the rest of the songs on the album. For Residente, there needs to be a connection in collaboration. “I have to feel vibe before I collaborate with anyone…” he explains about the work with Benito, “…he’s a cool kid and we have things in common.”
