Play is a sequel to his EP, Pausa which was released last year. Originally both of the EPs were meant to be one project, but they were split in two following the coronavirus pandemic and Ricky's personal experiences.

The tattoo was created by San Francisco-based tattooist ROXX, who praised Ricky for his activism work. "For a beautiful human, @ricky_martin thank you for all that you do for us in the LGBTQ+ community and with your foundation @rm_foundation… you are pure gold."

The Ricky Martin Foundation is a wide-reaching humanitarian project set up by the singer, which has campaigns to end people trafficking and provide education to children affected by the 2020 Puerto Rico earthquakes.

The ink got fans talking, as one wrote: "That is sickkkkkkkk," while another added: "What the… WOW!"
