On Wednesday January 25, Karol G revealed in an Instagram post the name of his next album. “Finally, finally,” she captioned a short clip in Spanish. “Today I am announcing a project that I have given so much love and time to. I just know that for me and for everyone, ‘Mañana Será Bonito’ (Tomorrow will be pretty).”
In the video, Karol is seen sitting in a red car in Medellín, Colombia, eating an empanada, when suddenly a little note appears on her windshield that says in Spanish, “If you’re sad, call me.” She gets out of the car and dials the number on a public phone, and a young boy answers from what appears to be a child-run telecommunications center. In order to cheer her up, he advises her to write a letter to Santa Claus, perform at a show, or consider recording her own version of the hit song “La Jeepeta”. But at the end of the call, her last words of wisdom are: “But señorita, the important thing is that mañana será bonito.” The clip ends with the words “coming soon”.
We can’t help but wonder if Karol has a song in the new album of the same name – “Mañana Será Bonito” – and if this clip is a teaser of the track’s music video. Chances are that this is precisely the case. The Colombian musical artist’s career has taken off quickly since she released her debut album, ‘Unstoppable’, in 2017, which was later followed by 2019’s ‘Ocean’ and 2021’s ‘KG0516’. Mañana Será Bonito” his fourth studio album, and from what little we could hear from the released clip, it looks like it will serve up a whole new vibe.
Karol’s previous album “KG0516” was accompanied by a number of hit songs, including his now signature “Bichota”, “Tusa” with Nicki Minaj, “Location” with Anuel AA and J Balvin, and “Leyendas”. with Wisin & Yandel, Nicky Jam, Ivy Queen, Zion and Alberto Stylee. “Tulsa” broke a number of records, including becoming the first song by two lead female artists to debut at No. 1 on the Hot Latin Songs Chart. It was also the first Latin song with all female artists to reach one billion streams on Spotify. “KG0516” not only received a 2021 Grammy nomination, it was also Karol’s first No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums. The album earned the biggest week for a Latin album by a woman since 2017’s “El Dorado” from fellow Colombiana Shakira. Our expectations for “Mañana Será Bonito” are high, but given Karol’s track record, we’re confident she’ll do too much.
