Bad Bunny & Farruko
“Blockia”

No me llames más—don’t call me anymore—says Bad Bunny & Farruko in this Spanish trap hit. It starts with a hard rain falling on a phone-booth, and then Bad Bunny introduces the chorus with his slipshod, seraphic pronunciation. Farruko takes over for a verse, his tenor rising up & down, slim & lissome. Bad Bunny comes back, spilling out his reasons why he’s blocked this apparent “psycho.” & then, a long line of shoutouts: Hear This Music, DJ Luian, Mambo Kingz.

A song of despair, with a technological presence. A man with a reason to cancel a love, & a woman, symbolized in the noir of rain & umbrellas & a bottle of vodka—product placement—& a reason to spill it all out on the streets.
