Bad Bunny Expresses Displeasure Over AI Voice Replication on Viral TikTok Song
Latin music sensation Bad Bunny recently expressed his frustration with a viral TikTok song that used artificial intelligence (AI) to replicate his voice. The song, called nostalgIA, was created by FlowGPT and featured AI recreations of the voices of Justin Bieber and Daddy Yankee as well.
In a strongly worded post on his WhatsApp channel, the 29-year-old artist vented his anger towards anyone who enjoyed the viral song, stating that they were unworthy of following him on the platform. He even went as far as threatening to exclude them from his tour, declaring, If you like that s***ty song that’s viral on TikTok, get out of this group right now. I don’t want them on the tour either.
Bad Bunny’s anger towards the use of AI technology in replicating his voice reflects the growing concern among performers in the entertainment industry. With AI becoming widely used, artists face the possibility of not receiving proper compensation for the use of their likeness and vocals.
On the other hand, Bad Bunny’s latest album, Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana (Nobody Knows What Will Happen Tomorrow), includes a song dedicated to his true fans. In the Spanish-language lyrics, he emphasizes that his aim was not to accumulate billions of views but rather to please his genuine supporters. The song also distinguishes between his loyal fans and those who naively believe they know everything about famous people’s lives.
While Bad Bunny continues to express his frustration with AI voice replication, he has been keeping his personal life under wraps. The Puerto Rican rapper is currently in a budding romance with supermodel and reality star Kendall Jenner. However, both parties have chosen to remain tight-lipped about their relationship, preferring to keep it private.
Kendall Jenner, in an interview with WSJ Magazine, shared her perspective on maintaining privacy in her love life. She explained her desire to strike a balance between keeping things private and sacred, despite the constant intrusion and stress caused by public scrutiny.
Bad Bunny, too, has chosen to adopt a similar strategy in protecting his personal life. In an interview with Rolling Stone, he highlighted the importance of his privacy, especially during a time when people’s privacy is often disregarded. While fans are naturally curious about his personal life, Bad Bunny remains focused on living life on his own terms.
In conclusion, Bad Bunny’s recent outburst against the AI voice replication used in a viral TikTok song underscores the growing concerns surrounding the use of AI technology in the entertainment industry. As the debate continues, artists like Bad Bunny strive to protect their privacy and maintain control over their own likeness and vocals.
