Bad Bunny recently concluded his “World’s Hottest Tour” concert tour, after which he announced a temporary retirement from the stage and music. However, on the eve of Christmas Eve, a collaboration in which he participated was released: “Gato de Noche,” a song by reggaetonero Ñengo Flow.
Bad Bunny appears as a special guest, infusing the track with his characteristic flow. The official video for the song premiered at the same time as its release on platforms, and it has already risen to the number two position on YouTube’s list of music trends.
“Gato de Noche” begins with a character dressed as Santa Claus stating “Merry Christmas,” leading some fans to believe that the song is seasonally relevant. However, the actual subject matter of the song is different. After Santa Claus departs, Ñengo Flow appears dressed as the same character but with a more irreverent persona, as he is seen holding a cigarette.
Bad Bunny performs the initial verses and the first chorus, while Ñengo Flow (Edwin Rosa Vasquez) takes over for the subsequent verses. The song discusses infidelity, depicting the night as an opportunity to be unfaithful to one’s partner.
Mexico City’s Head of Government, Claudia Sheinbaum, recently uploaded a video to TikTok in which she appears to be listening to the premiere of “Gato de Noche” with headphones.
She initially appears intrigued, and upon donning the headphones, she looks surprised before finally smiling. The video ends with Sheinbaum’s laughter audible.
Some users in the video’s comments section have speculated that this could be a sign that the CDMX government intends to bring Bad Bunny to the Zócalo, as President Andrés Manuel López Obrador suggested a few days ago.
Here is the official video of the song:
