Bad Bunny's break
The Puerto Rican artist announced at the end of 2022 that he was taking a break from music to take care of his mental health.
"I'm taking a break. 2023 is for me, for my physical health, my emotional health, to breathe, to enjoy my achievements. We are going to celebrate. Let's go here, let's go there, let's go on the boat," he said during an interview in December.
However, the artist has not totally distanced himself from social media or music so far this year.
