Bad Bunny Joins Gorillaz On ‘Tormenta’: Look + Listen

Featured on the pop/rock groups just released LP, Cracker Island, Bad Bunny collaborated with the Gorillaz on “Tormenta.”

The Spanglish composition starts with a jazz-based introduction and the voice of Damon Albarn who repeats, “The sun in the storm/Someone cryin,” before the Spanish speaking Puerto Rican superstar asks a love interest to see him before he leaves.

In advance of the song’s release Albarn revealed that he had recorded the track with the the Latin musician (born Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio) while in Jamaica, stating “What I love about Gorillaz is that I can bring on whoever I want… I was in Jamaica recently and I recorded a song with Bad Bunny, which is something very exciting.” “The Bad Bunny song is the first song we recorded for the project. It’s Bad Bunny meets Gorillaz.”

“In addition to Tormenta,” the Cracker Island LP includes “Oil” featuring Stevie Nicks, “New Gold” with Tame Impala, and “Possession Island” featuring Beck.

The rock group’s first full length since Song Machine, Season One: Strange Timez (2020,) Gorillaz’s four animated members “shared” some of their thoughts on the album in a statement last summer “Cracker Island is the sound of change and the chorus of the collective,” said Noodle Hobbs. “The hallowed tones of Cracker Island will soundtrack our collective ascension into the new dimension!” added Murdoc Niccals.
