Residente and Bad Bunny, "Bellacoso"

Residente returned to his melodic roots and witty lyrics when he dropped “Bellacoso” featuring Bad Bunny. The collaboration was a promise he made to fans if Puerto Rican governor Ricardo Rosselló resigned. Indeed, after 12 days of protest in the island, where both Residente and Bunny took part, Rosselló officially announced his resignation on July 24.

Keeping his promise, Residente dropped the track and official music video the following day. Filmed by Gregory Ohrel in Puerto Rico, “Bellacoso” is an inventive slang term that embodies and celebrates the beauty of diversity, according to the official press statement. "Bellacoso" is a combination of "bellaco," slang for someone who's sexually aroused and "acoso" meaning harassment. Residente says "bellacoso" in the song "is about being horny without harassment — it’s consensual." 

On Latin Digital Songs, “Bellacoso” debuted at No. 7 on the Aug. 10-dated chart. Check out the English translated lyrics below.

The girls love my flow
Like in the beach, when you get sand stuck in your butt
An obscene dance
That when people look at us, they are ashamed
Go all the way down, without regret
Let us forget that we haven’t paid the rent
Good chemistry connected like ants but without antennas
Move that bomb butt 
They got rid of Elena but that doesn’t stop us
We’re not from Hollywood, but we dominate the scene
We even do backward goals, like the Chileans
Today, no one controls us, only this general when he makes noise

Move the tableware
Like entering an igloo, bending your knees
Like a snake with legs, slippery slippers
Like there’s butter spread on the floor
Sugar through the vein with a syringe
What I bring is chocolate with vanilla
You shine with my music
In this world, it’s you and I and then the seven wonders
For those who are sitting, your nightmare is here
With this, I’ll even put the chairs to dance
With this dembow, I’ll take away your hunger
You forgot that I have White Lion in my blood
If you want eggs, heat up the nest
I want my kids to have your last name
Like a public bathroom, a dirty perreo

Very "bellacoso", but without harassment
Very, very, very, very "bellacoso"
Very, very, very, very
Very, very, very, very "bellacoso"
Very, very, very, very "bellacoso"
Very, very, very, very "bellacoso"
Very, very, very, very
Very "bellacoso"

Raise your hands if you don’t have sex
The guy is so-so, and she wants flow
She’s not a golddigger, she doesn’t want a ticket
She only wants to dance without any problems
Squirt, I want her to splash me
Tell me, where do you want me to be
"Yo no sé mañana", said Luis Enrique
That’s why I don’t question her nor want explanations 
I’m going on top
Baby, you’re hot

She’s just like Nokia when she dances, she doesn’t get tired 
I must confess you’ve been my crush for a while
I don’t know if you have a girlfriend or a boyfriend
Relax, ma, that I won’t give you away
No Instagram stories or photos
But if you’re dry, I’ll hydrate you
You have an innate talent dancing
I saw you and my gelato melted
Today we’re going to break the cheapest room
Because if we have to, we have to do it 
It’s hot, we have to reset it
We’re going home late tonight
God protect me but don’t stop me

Very, very, very, very "bellacoso"
Very, very, very, very
Very, very, very, very "bellacoso"
Very, very, very, very "bellacoso"
Very, very, very, very "bellacoso"
Very, very, very, very
Very "bellacoso"

The roosters of the nest have arrived
To feed those who haven’t eaten a good flow
We bring double meat with cheese, fries and a drink included
We’re getting lit today
Until you feel your back getting sweaty
I’m behaving badly so you hit me with the belt
Today I’ll teach you how to dance dirty

Very, very, very, very "bellacoso"
Very, very, very, very "bellacoso"
Very, very, very, very
Very, very, very, very "bellacoso"
Very, very, very, very "bellacoso"
Very, very, very, very "bellacoso"
Very, very, very, very
"Bellacoso, very "bellacoso"
