Meaning of ‘LA NOCHE DE ANOCHE’ by ‘Bad Bunny’ feat. ROSALÍA

Released: 2020

“LA NOCHE DE ANOCHE” by Bad Bunny and ROSALÍA is a song reflecting on a transcendental night of passion and connection. Both artists reminisce about an unforgettable encounter filled with intense emotions, despite acknowledging that such a night won’t happen again. The song captures the bittersweet blend of physical intimacy and emotional detachment, portraying love’s fleeting yet impactful nature.

Bad Bunny starts off with an admission: “Yo sé que esto no volverá a pasar” (I know this won’t happen again). He’s certain that the night in question was a one-time deal, but knows it left a strong impression. The repetition of “porque la noche de anoche fue algo que yo no puedo explicar” (because last night was something I can’t explain) emphasizes how powerful and indescribable the experience was. This isn’t just about the physical act, but about the deep connection they felt momentarily.

ROSALÍA chimes in, detailing the emotional contradiction of feeling physically warm but emotionally cold: “Tú me dejaste el cuerpo caliente, infierno, pero me dejaste el corazón frío, invierno” (You left my body hot, hell, but you left my heart cold, winter). She dreams of sleeping next to him but acknowledges the inherent unattainability of their bond. The line “Soñando que contigo es que duermo (dime papi)” (Dreaming that I sleep with you, tell me, daddy) adds a layer of yearning.


They both reflect on the spontaneity and rawness of the night: “Sin mucha labia, sin mucha cotorra” (Without much talk, without much chatter). The connection was genuine and unforced, driven purely by the vibe. Yet, they also admit that nothing about their relationship was serious: “Pero al final na de lo nuestro fue en serio” (But in the end, nothing about us was serious).

The chorus repeats, underscoring how extraordinary the night was: “Eso era dando y dándole sin parar” (That was giving and giving non-stop). Both artists weave in their feelings of being left disappointed and hurt before, “Y ya me ha pasao que me han abandonado” (It’s already happened to me that they’ve abandoned me), adding a layer of vulnerability.

ROSALÍA brings in her unique flair, mentioning that she’ll always remember this one-of-a-kind night: “La paleta es dulce, azúcar de algodón” (The lollipop is sweet, cotton candy sugar). She’s not shy about her capability to handle emotional highs and lows: “Yo soy su Messiah” (I am his Messiah), highlighting her savior-like presence in Bad Bunny’s life.

The song closes out with an unresolved tension, a sense of longing mixed with resignation, as they both reiterate how unforgettable that night was. The repetition of “Tú encima de mí, yo encima de ti” (You on top of me, me on top of you) encapsulates the physicality and intense connection that defined their night, making it clear that some moments, even if fleeting, are worth remembering forever.
