I don’t think I have to tell anyone that this is Bad Bunny’s world and we’re just living in it. I was introduced to him after his collaboration with Cardi B and J Balvin. And only four short years later, Bad Bunny has sky rocketed to everyone’s playlist, even without understanding the words.
According to billboard.com, “At 28 years old, Bad Bunny has broken plenty of records – he’s the first artist to reach the top of the Billboard 200 singing solely in Spanish, he’s sold out back-to-back arena and stadium tours, and become Spotify’s most-streamed artist globally.” And back in May 2022, Bad Bunny broke Drake’s record for artist with the most single-day streams in Spotify history (183M).
Bad Bunny also announced three shows in Puerto Rico to kick off his summer tour. And this just wasn’t any ordinary announcement. The only way to get tickets was in person. Some fans were outside for 27 hours. Due to high demand and most likely because Bad Bunny can do whatever he wants, according to mitu.com, “[the team] rewarded the diehard fans that had been braving the heat and rain for days by giving them free tickets.”
And that’s not all, earlier this year Made in America announced Bad Bunny as one of the headliners for their festival. Sure it came with some backlash because what festival announcement doesn’t come with backlash? However, think about the statement this is making. The festival is called Made in America. The festival is produced by Roc Nation… Jay Z. Look at the Made in America logo.
The list pretty much goes on. Remember Bad Bunny’s stint on WWE? What’s next? A movie. Oh wait.
