Bad Bunny dropped a mysterious message on the bio of his Twitter page, which could be hinting about him taking a step back from music or from social media.
“Me van a extrañar,” the 28-year-old “Efecto” singer said Monday, which translates to “They will miss me” in English. He also changed his profile photo on Twitter to a snap of Bart Simpson enjoying music on his headphones. Bad Bunny has 4.9 million followers on his Twitter page.
The Puerto Rican artist also decided to make his Instagram private, where he is followed by 44.9 million followers and has 17 posts. The singer’s other social media accounts – his Facebook page (with 14 million followers) and TikTok (30 million followers) remain public.
In December, the “Me Porto Bonito” exclusively told Billboard that he was planning to take a break from music in 2023.
“I’m taking a break. 2023 is for me, for my physical health, my emotional health to breathe, enjoy my achievements,” he said, adding, “We’re going to celebrate. Let’s go here, let’s go there, let’s go on the boat. I have a couple of sporadic commitments, and I’ll go to the studio, but there’s no pressure. Remember yourself, cabrón. You’ve worked your a– off,” he said at the time.
Bunny was Billboard’s 2022 year-end Top Artists chart leader, while his album “Un Verano Sin Ti” became the first all-Spanish album to hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 year-end albums chart. His concert tours were successful last year. He made a record-breaking $435 million for a total of 80 concerts from two separate tours: “El Último Tour del Mundo” and “The World’s Hottest Tour”.
A video of the singer, whose real name is Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, went viral last week, showing him tossing a fan’s phone into the water without remorse. The clip showed a female fan suddenly appearing by his side and taking selfies with him. A few seconds later, a visibly annoyed Bunny grabs the phone and throws it into a body of water.
In a since-deleted tweet, the artist said, “The person who comes up to me to say hello, to tell me something, or just to meet me, will always receive my attention and respect,” he wrote in Spanish. “Those who come to put a f–king phone in my face I will consider it for what it is, a lack of respect, and I will treat it likewise.”
Bunny received backlash for his action, while others tweeted their support for the singer.
