Just a few weeks ago, Bad Bunny released his new album, ‘nobody knows what’s going to happen tomorrow’. The album is made up of a total of 22 new songs, including the singles ‘Where She Goes’ and ‘Un Preview’. However, the topic that is going on right now does not belong to the album or to Bad Bunny himself, but to artificial intelligence.
If you’ve recently heard the Puerto Rican’s voice in a TikTok video, it may not be ‘Monaco’ or any of the songs from his recently released album. In fact, it is most likely ‘NostalgIA’, a trending song on the platform where Bad Bunny, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber sing. But the song has not been created by any of the three artists, but is the work of artificial intelligence and was released a month ago by Flow GPT.
Although until now no one had commented on the matter, his increasing success on TikTok has pushed Bad Bunny to talk about it, which was also receiving comparisons with his new music, where some published that “it’s even better.” He has done it through his WhatsApp channel, in which he stays connected with his fans. “There are people with whom I understand and people with whom I don’t, there are people with whom I connect and people with whom I don’t…”, he wrote cryptically in two messages.
Hours later, the Puerto Rican was more blunt: «If you like that shitty song that is viral on TikTok, get out of this group right now. You don’t deserve to be my friends and that’s why I made the new album, to get rid of people like that. So out.” He then made it clear that “I don’t want them on the tour either.”
This case joins the many others that have accumulated throughout the year in which the music industry has to face AI. However, there are those who use them for their own benefit: the Beatles’ latest song, released last week, was recorded with the help of artificial intelligence.
