Fans have been waiting for an album from these guys since May of last year, and on Friday, J Balvin and Bad Bunny delivered their joint album “Oasis.”
The eight-track project also features guest spots from Mr. Eazi and Marciano Cantero.
The two have also released a video for the first single off the project “Qué Pretendes.”
Of the new album, Bad Bunny said in a press release:
OASIS is a transcendental and refreshing album; it is a rescue, a relief. An Oasis helps you to supply yourself with what you’re missing and to find what you lack spiritually; this is what this album represents. We have been working on it for a long time, and finally, we found its moment. Working with J Balvin has undoubtedly been an unparalleled experience, I have always admired and respected him a lot and we have had an excellent vibe throughout this whole process.
J Balvin added:
I am proud to say I LOVE Bad Bunny; we always seem to be on the same wavelength, as he likes what I like. He is also all about celebrating our culture, while remaining super humble. Working with Benito again has been a musical joy. I am blessed to not only call him my brother, but now a partner on an album that has even become a personal Oasis. I’ve been traveling all over the world the last few months, and anytime it started to feel overwhelming, I’ve been able to listen to the tracks we created, and instantly return “Home” to our own musical paradise. I’m so glad the time has arrived where fans can now share those same new vibes with us.
J Balvin’s last studio album was 2018’s Vibras. Bad Bunny dropped his debut LP X 100PRE later that year. Both artists played Coachella 2019, and came onstage during each other’s sets.
