Since Bad Bunny’s musical collaboration with Grupo Frontera was announced, fans of “Bad Rabbit” couldn’t wait for the premiere of said song that, since its release, managed to position itself at number one on the world top from Spotify, removing the hit song from the throne She dances Alone, Featherweight and Armed Link.
However, after the euphoria and excitement of millions of Mexicans that one of their greatest idols made possible the fusion of reggaeton with regional Mexican music, before the premiere of A x100toa rumor arose that generated controversy, since they point out that said single is about the alleged plagiarism of another famous Mexican song.
According to what has been stated on social networks, multiple users have pointed out and accused that the melody of the recently released Bad Bunny theme sounds very similar to that of the popular song Sleepless, performed by the singer Bobby Pulido, so Internet users did not take long to make the comparison to find the similarities.
The accusation of the alleged plagiarism began a couple of days ago through TikTok, where various users shared a recording of almost a minute in which they make a comparison, putting in first place a fragment of the video of the subject that, it is said, Bobby Pulido dedicated to Selena Quintanilla, to end with a part of the theme A x100to in which the Puerto Rican sings.

This signaling did not take long to go viral and generate debate among users, since there were those who did not find any similarity between the new song and the song that was a success in the 90s. On the other hand, a few others indicated that there was a certain similarity in the rhythm and the only thing different was the lyrics.
Despite the claim of alleged plagiarism, the song by Grupo Frontera in a duet with “Conejo Malo” has been very controversial, not only because of the unusual fusion of rhythms and musical genres, but also because much has been said that the song released last April 17 was released because the Puerto Rican could not stand that Featherweight was at number one in the playlists of digital platforms.
For their part, both Grupo Frontera and Bad Bunny stay away from the controversy and rumors that have arisen after the premiere of their song, enjoying the success and good acceptance it has had from the public and their fans, since at the moment it counts with more than 12 million views on YouTube and is at the top of the charts Top on Spotify.
