Bad Bunny, "Si Veo a Tu Mamá"

Bad Bunny’s new album YHLQMDLG has officially made history on the Billboard charts, debuting at No. 1 on Top Latin Albums and No. 2 on Billboard 200.

He also breaks the record for the most career entries on the Hot Latin Songs chart, placing all 20 tracks from his set on the March 14-dated chart. “Si Veo A Tu Mama” debuted at No. 1, becoming his fifth leader.

The song, which gives an urban twist to the classic bossa nova tune in “The Girl from Ipanema,” is about a person who can’t get over his or her ex, no matter how much they admit they’re over them. Its title, “Si Veo A Tu Mama,” translates to “if I see your mom” and makes mention of a person who’s so curious about their ex’s whereabouts that they’re willing to ask their mom about them.

Bad Bunny, alongside Ozuna, leads the 2020 Billboard Latin American Music Awards as a 14-time finalist. The awards show will air live April 23 on Telemundo, following the three-day event and panel series LatinFest+ presented by Billboard and Telemundo in Las Vegas.

Check out the full lyrics translated into English below.

I still love you
But I know it’s a mistake
Because you don’t love me
And I’m better off without you
And If I see your mom
I’ll ask her about you
To see if you’re dating someone new
Someone who makes you happy

And here I am torn
Thinking of all the times we had sex
Thinking of all the times I was there for you
I don’t know why I lie to myself
Saying that I forgot about you if I miss you
I only share memes now, I don’t write anything
And I haven’t deleted your photos; I put them in private

Stupid new year and what it brought me
I lost my job for always being down
Thinking of you, always sad
I look fat, I didn’t lose weight
I don’t know life messed me up
Thinking of taking a shortcut
I met someone, but I don’t know, it never clicked
Unless it’s you
Baby, I love you even when I say otherwise
I’ve been alone for six months, but

Today I went out to drink with my friends
And I said I won’t talk about you
It's 5 o'clock, it's dawn
If they don’t light it up, I’ll call her
Today I went out to drink with my friends
And I said I won’t talk about you
It's 5 o'clock, it's dawn
If they don’t light it up, I’ll call her

I still love you
But I know it’s a mistake
Because you don’t love me
And I’m better off without you
And If I see your mom
I’ll ask her about you
To see if you’re dating someone new
Someone who makes you happy
