Bad Bunny’s “Tití Me Preguntó” Lyrics Meaning
For starters, the title of this song translates to the phrase “auntie asked me”. But the lyrics aren’t about the vocalist’s aunt, whose presence serves primarily as a plot device. So more to the point is this being the person in the singer’s life who questions his preference of having a number of girlfriends.
That said, this song isn’t really about her related disapproval either. Rather, the first half of the track primarily features Bunny using the opportunity to boast about his various babes. Indeed, he does so not only in terms of the present but also the past, pointing out for instance that his “first girlfriend in Kindergarten” was named “Maria”.
But the primary focus of course is on his current romantic adventurism, i.e. the vocalist having a number of shorties not only in his homeland of PR but also from Colombia, San Antonio, the DR and even “one from Barcelona” who flies over because he is very good in bed. And whereas the vocalist does proceed to imply that one day he will get married, concurrently it’s pretty obvious that he has no actual desire to live a monogamous life.
The Auntie in “Tití Me Preguntó”
And auntie does get her time to shine, during the interlude, where it is made clear that she considers Bad along the lines of being a “devil” nephew. He therefore needs to repent accordingly, including settling down with “a serious woman”.
Why Bad Bunny is a Womanizer
The bridge and verse that follow take a more serious approach. Here, it is revealed that Bunny isn’t a playa just solely because he likes women. Instead he has trust issues, not only in regards to romantic interests but also himself.
For example, he knows that many of the women who acquiesce to his whims are, most simply put, gold-diggers. So at this stage, the vocalist doesn’t perceive himself as someone who is capable of falling in love.
But that said, he is also the type to get bored sexually pretty fast and subsequently desire “a brand-new a-s”. And as fate would have it, he is in a position whereas a number of women are readily available. So Bad Bunny even goes as far as to warn ladies who are interested in him that he is indeed about that life.
Thus by the looks of things, auntie is going to continue being pissed into the foreseeable future, as the singer currently appears completely disinterested in giving up his womanizing ways.
