How AI is Transforming the Music Industry

“Earlier this year, Bad Bunny emphatically rejected rumors that he was about to release a new song with Justin Bieber. “That’s fake,” he told TIME in an interview for a cover story on his meteoric rise. “You never know what I’m going to do.” 

But last month, a song featuring what sounded like his and Bieber’s voices started circulating on TikTok, garnering millions of likes. Bad Bunny hadn’t lied in the interview, though: the song was created with AI. An artist named FlowGPT had used AI technology to recreate the voices of Bad Bunny, Bieber and Daddy Yankee in a reggaeton anthem. Bad Bunny himself hated it, calling it a “shit of a song” in Spanish and discouraging his fans from listening, and the clip was removed from TikTok. But many fans of all three megastars loved it all the same.”
