Bad Bunny and Drake ‘s long-awaited collab single ” MIA” made history this weekend, becoming the first song done entirely in Spanish to reach No. 1 on Apple Music’s Top Songs Chart in the United States.
The track is already a colossal worldwide hit, topping the charts in Belize, Bolivia, Cape Verde, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras,Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, and Paraguay. The track’s impact stateside represents a greater goal on Bunny’s mind.
“Obviously this song is an achievement for me in my career, but what makes me really feel good is to make Latinos feel proud,” Bad Bunny told Apple Music, per Billboard . “To provoke that pride that a pop figure and someone so big in music globally like Drake would sing with me completely in Spanish and create this hit ‘MIA.’ That’s the best part of it.
Nearly ten months later, the song finally dropped, along with a music video.
Judging from the reception on the charts around the world, people are fully embracing the concept of Drake taking another turn at singing in Spanish with one of the biggest stars in Latin music today in Bunny.
Drizzy also took a shot at singing in Spanish on the Romeo Santos single “Odio.”
