Background[]

I was in Jamaica recently and recorded a Gorillaz song with Bad Bunny, that’s something exciting for next year. Bad Bunny is the first single. It is the first song I have made from this new project. I still don’t know when it will come out, or how we are going to launch it, but we finished it and it is… yes, more or less a reggaeton song. It’s Bad Bunny meets Gorillaz.
~ Damon Albarn, WARP interview

Tormenta was recorded sometime in 2021 and was the first completed track for the Cracker Island album.[1] It was co-produced by Remi Kabaka Jr. and Tainy. The track was released on February 24th, 2023 along with a visualiser.

Lyrics[]

[Chorus: 2-D & Bad Bunny]

The sun in the storm (Sun in the storm; someone cryin')
Someone cryin' (Someone, someone, someone, someone)
Something is said (Someone cryin')
Someone cryin' (Someone, someone, someone, someone)
Ey, ey

[Refrain: Bad Bunny]

Y aprovéchame hoy, que mañana me voy
Y no sé cuándo vuelvo si en tus ojo' me pierdo
Y aprovéchame hoy, que mañana me voy
Y no sé cuándo vuelvo si en tus ojo' me pierdo

[Verse 1: Bad Bunny]

Y nadie lo pidió (Pidió), pero estamo' aquí (Aquí)
Yo no sé si fue Dio', ey, pero creo que lo vi
Cuando me besaste
No sé cuándo llegaste, pero no quiero que te vaya'
Tú hace' contraste
Con todo este desastre
que me toca vivir
Eh, eh, eh, eh-eh, eh
La cura del miedo la tiene' tú
Veo todo claro aunque se fue la lu', ey

[Refrain: Bad Bunny]

Aprovéchame hoy
Ey, ey

[Verse 2: Bad Bunny]

Y yo no quiero ver el mundo arder
Pero algo tan bonito, no, no se puede perder
El reloj nos quiere morder
Pero en tus brazo' me voy a esconder, ey
Pa' que no me encuentren (Encuentren)
To' el mundo siempre está pendiente (-diente)
Pero no saben lo que se siente (Siente)
Cruza conmigo ante' que se rompa el puente (Puente), je
Y que se joda el resto
¿Quién dice lo que está correcto?
Si el amor nunca ha sido perfecto
Ojalá sea por siempre este momento
Pero si no

[Refrain: Bad Bunny]

Aprovéchame hoy

[Chorus: 2-D]

The sun in the storm (Sun in the storm; someone cryin')
Someone cryin' (Someone, someone, someone, someone)
Something is said (Someone cryin')
Someone cryin' (Someone, someone, someone, someone)
Something is—

[Outro: 2-D]

The sun in the storm (Sun in the storm; someone cryin')
Someone cryin' (Someone, someone, someone, someone, someone, someone, someone, someone)
