The tour, promoted by Cardenas Marketing Network (CMN), kicks off March 14 in Miami, where the artist had to also add a second concert date to meet the fans’ demands. This past weekend, Bad Bunny was one of several artists, along with Kali Uchis and Ty Dolla $ign, to perform at the 2019 Pornhub Awards; incidentally, Kanye West served as the awards ceremony’s creative director last year.
Bad Bunny‘s latest explosive performance comes on the heels of his show at the 2019 VMAs when he performed “Qué Pretendes” with J Balvin. They brought out cartoon cactuses and more in one of the wildest highlights of the night.
One of the highlights of his career has been his collaboration with Cardi B anf J Balvin on “I Like It,” a massive hit that has catapulted him even further in the mainstream general market, reaching the #1 position of Billboard’s Hot 100 chart – a historic feat as it marks the second Latin song to ever reach this position in the chart.
Born Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, Bad Bunny was raised in the rural town of Vega Baja in San Juan. Music from Fania Records — New York’s trailblazing salsa label of the 1970s and ‘80s — abounded in his household. As a child, he sang in the choir of his local church and eventually took up skateboarding as a teen while reveling in the music of local urban and reggaeton superstars like Calle 13 and Daddy Yankee, and even SoCal nü-metal from Linkin Park.

Fresh off the release of their collaborative album OASIS , Bad Bunny and J Balvin have teamed up once again, this time to perform at the MTV Video Music Awards on August 26. The duo, who are nominated for multiple awards individually, performed their OASIS standout Qué Pretendes.” Dressed in giant, video-game costumes, the duo danced around stage while rapping as elaborate augmented reality animations swirled around them.
What’s most remarkable is how he achieved this popular status before he ever released an album. In 2018 alone, he appeared on or released four singles in the Top 100, including Cardi B ‘s number one “I Like It” (also featuring J Balvin ). Since issuing his own debut single in 2016, his dozens of recordings have appeared on an array of charts, ranging from Latin pop and reggaeton to dance and hip-hop lists. His 2018 debut album, X 100PRE hit the top spot on the Latin albums chart within a week of release. Bad Bunny’s sweeping commercial appeal lies in his chameleon-like approach: he melds Latin soul, pop, and R&B, hard-hitting trap beats, and reggaeton with a slippery delivery that revels in allowing emotions to color his songs; they range from humor and pathos to heartbreak and anger (sometimes in the same song). He is one of the top collaborators in the música urbana movement. Because of his association with DJ Luian , Bad Bunny guested with a slew of top-name LatinX artists.
More than a lark or a flex, the unexpected feature speaks to the cumulative, overlapping creative projects of Balvin, 34, a native of Colombia, and Bad Bunny, 25, who is Puerto Rican, as they expand the reach and rules of Latin music. Each has taken the blueprint of reggaeton — the rhythm-driven, Caribbean-influenced strain of Spanish-language hip-hop — and with some added flair and international collaborations led a new generation of artists to the pop mainstream under the wide umbrella of genres known as música urbana, or urbano.
BAD BUNNY: Fashion is one thing, but style is another. Sometimes big companies say, Look at that cabrón! He loves fashion.” But I don’t follow any designer. Everyone has their style and your style explains a lot about who you are—you feel me? I’ve had style since childhood, so I like to dress how I feel. But maybe I get carried away by some trends.

Whether busting out ‘90s-era raver moves or tenderly crooning away to a heartfelt ballad, Bad Bunny puts on an exhilarating show. Owning a two-year repertoire that packs a load of recognizable bangers and viral hits, his shows promise plenty of massive sing-alongs and perreo outburst from audiences.
Meanwhile, Bad Bunny walks the line of gender respectability. Though he often pushes up against toxic masculinity by embracing femininity and defying traditional gender roles, his story reminds us of the narrow parameters within which that is possible. Still, he’s expanding what it means to be Latino, male, and heterosexual for an entire generation of Latinx youth. Perhaps someday, he will help us reimagine Latin trap, or whatever iteration of Dembow comes after it, and the people it makes room for.
