Aventura Reunites For New Bad Bunny Collab ‘Volví’

Puerto Rican reggaeton star Bad Bunny is no stranger to working with Latin music icons. The “Yonaguni” singer has worked with a wide variety of stars in the past, including the likes of fellow Puerto Ricans Daddy Yankee, Marc Anthony, Ricky Martin, and Wisin y Yandel.

For his latest trick, Bad Bunny joins forces with Dominican-American bachata group Aventura for “Volví,” a new single that combines Aventura’s traditional bachata sound with Bad Bunny’s melodic take on reggaeton rhythms.

“Volví” comes on the heels of the new HBO Max documentary Romeo Santos: King of Bachata, which chronicles the life and career of Aventura frontman and eventual solo star Romeo Santos. When they first burst on to the scene at the turn of the century, the group broke the mold of what bachata could be simply by being a Dominican group that originated in the Bronx rather than the island country. “Volví” shows that Aventura continues to reinvent what bachata can sound like, even when they’ve been officially broken up for more than a decade.

The last time Aventura reunited was for the 2019 song “Inmortal.” The single was from Romeo Santos’ solo album Utopía, in which the King of Bachata recruited over a dozen different bachata pioneers from the Dominican Republic and gave the spotlight to those who came before him. Rather than tour in promotion of the smash album, Santos opted to perform a one-night-only concert for a record-breaking crowd of 80,000 at MetLife Stadium, complete with performances from Aventura, his Utopía collaborators, and even a surprise guest appearance from fellow Bronx-bred Dominican Cardi B for Aventura’s signature song “Obsesión.” (The concert film is also available to stream on HBO Max.)

“Volví” comes less than two weeks before the group hits the road for their official farewell tour, set to kick off in Miami on August 13th after being postponed in 2020. Bad Bunny, meanwhile, will be touring in support of his album El Último Tour del Mundo in the spring of next year, making up for lost time after he was unable to perform the three solo albums he released in 2020.
