Me Porto Bonito: the meaning of the lyrics

In Me Porto Bonito, Bad Bunny and Chencho Corleone talk about a girl they are infatuated with. They love her look and the way she shares pictures of herself on social network. They remember that time where they’ve been together in intimate moments. And they ask her, virtually, what does it take to be her boyfriend.

The song starts describing the sensation the singers have being close to her, or looking at her on her social profiles.

En la guagua se quedó el olor de tu perfume
Tú ere’ una bellaca, yo soy un bellaco, eso e’ lo que no’ une
Ella sabe que está buenota y no la presumen
Si yo fuera tu gato, subiera una foto los vierne’ y los lune’

The scent of your perfume stayed in the bus
You’re a flirt, I’m a flirt, that’s what joins us
She knows she’s hot and that she isn’t shown off
If I was your man I’d post a pic of you every Friday and Monday

Pa’ que to’ el mundo vea lo rica que tú está’, que tú está’
Contigo tengo que apretar

So that the world sees how hot you are, you are
I need to be careful with you

The girl is so good looking that it becomes normal, for her boyfriend, to help her in sharing her look digitally. But what the singers feel for her is more than that: they wish to be her official boyfriend. And they are ready to change their behavior, if needed, in order to stay with her. This is exactly the meaning of the title, “Me Porto Bonito” in Spanish: I behave myself.

Y en la calle ando suelto, pero por ti me quito
Si tú me lo pides, yo me porto bonito

And I go around loose on the streets, but I remove myself for you
If you ask me, I’ll behave myself

The level of commitment the singers are offering in order to stay with her is high: they talk about making a baby, or offering a plan B; whatever she has in mind.

Si quiere’ te hago un bebé o te traigo la’ plan B
Uff, mami, qué rica tú te ve’

If you want I’ll make you a baby or bring you a plan B
Uff, mami, you look so hot

The complete lyrics go on this way: alternating compliments about her look, good memories of how being with her was, and proposals of true commitment: Despite she behaves “naughty” when she goes out, the singers are sure, what she wants, and deserve, is a serious relationship. And the men in Me Porto Bonito say it clear: I can be the one who makes you happy, and behave the way you want, if you give me the chance.

The real meaning of Me Porto Bonito lyrics therefore is this one: it’s a love letter to a beautiful girl, who seems naughty but deep inside herself needs love.

En la guagua se quedó el olor de tu perfume
Tú ere’ una bellaca, yo soy un bellaco
Eso es lo que no’ une
Ella sabe que está buenota
Y no la presumen
Si yo fuera tu gato
Subiera una foto los vierne’ y los lune’ (So)

The smell of your perfume remained in the bus
You are naughty, I am naughty
That’s what unites us
She knows that she is hot
And that she isn’t shown off
If I was your man
I’d post a pic of you every Friday and Monday

Pa’ que to’ el mundo vea
Lo rica que tú está’, que tú está’
Contigo tengo que apretar
Y еn la calle ando suelto
Pero por ti mе quito
Si tú me lo pides
Yo me porto bonito

So that the world sees
How hot you are, you are
I need to be careful with you
And in the streets I run free
But for you I stay in
If you ask for it
I’ll behave myself

Y subo un selfie pa’ que vean
Lo rica que tú está’, que tú está’
Las otras tienen que apretar
En la calle ando suelto
Pero por ti mе quito
Si tú me lo pide’
Yo me porto bonito

And I post a selfie for them to see
How hot you are, you are
Other girls will need to take it
And in the streets I run free
But for you I stay in
If you ask for it
I’ll behave myself

Ey, ey
Tú no ere’ bebecita
Tú ere’ bebesota
Frikitona ma’, se te nota
Le gustan los trío’ cuando está en la nota
Si el novio no sirve, de una lo bota

Hey, hey
You’re not a little baby
You’re a hot girl
A freaky girl, it shows
She likes threesomes whenever she’s tipsy
If the boyfriend isn’t useful, she dumps him right away

Y, wow
Mami, dime dónde dejo el resume
Sé que te dejaste hace un me’
Y de una de pecho, me zumbé
Si quiere’ te hago un bebé
O te traigo la’ plan B
Uff mami, qué rica tú te ve’
Pa’ los 2000, escuchaba RBD
Y ahora quiere perreo to’a la noche en la pared
Te obsesiono, CBD

And wow
Mami, tell me where do I leave the resume
I know you broke up a month ago
And I approached you right away
If you want, I’ll make you a baby
Or I’ll bring you the Plan B
Ouch, mami, you look so hot
In the 2000’s she listened to RBD
And now she wants to twerk all night against the wall
You obsess over me, CBD

Mami, tú ere’ élite, no te me límite’ (okey)
Déjame hacerte lo que amerite y te levite
Dale pa’l escondite, no te me arisque’ (So)
Que aquí no van a poder llegar lo’ satélite’

Mami, you’re elite, you have no limit
Let me do to you what you deserve and you’ll levitate
Let’s go to the hideout, don’t walk it back
That not even the satellites will catch us here

Mami, sube algo
Dame contenido
Ese culo súbelo má’ seguido
Me paso jangueando a ver si coincido, ey
Y por fin doy contigo

Mami, post something
Give me content
That a--, post it more often
I party all the time to see if we coincide, hey
And I finally run across you

Mai, nuestra’ bellaquera’, nunca la’ olvido
Ninguna como tú a mí me ha complacido
Tú cree’ que a toda’ siempre les digo lo mismo
Quiere chingar, pero no quiere na’ fijo, ey
Pero en confianza me confiesa
Dice que nadie le interesa
Pero cuando sale se pone traviesa

Mai, I never forget of our get-togethers
No one has ever pleased me like you have
You think I always tell all girls the same
She wants to f**, but she doesn’t want anything serious, hey
But in confidence she confesses
She says she isn’t into anyone
But when she goes out she gets naughty

Pa’ que to’ el mundo vea
Lo rica que tú está’, que tú está’, ey
Contigo tengo que apretar
Y en la calle ando suelto
Pero por ti me quito
Si tú me lo pide’
Yo me porto bonito

So that the world sees
How hot you are, you are
I need to be careful with you
And in the streets I run free
But for you I stay in
If you ask for it
I’ll behave myself
