New Bad Bunny Music Video For ‘Chambea’ Features Ric Flair The Natureboy And Mad Bling

Bad Bunny’s new music video for his song “Chambea” features Ric Flair, the loud mouth nature boy from pro-wrestling fame — and that’s the tamest part of the video. Bunny sports a loud tropical yellow suit with red and green accents, which looks a lot like your abuela’s curtains from the 80’s and 90’s, which also match the VHS tuning filter that comes in and out throughout.

Flair appears next to Bunny on a rooftop exclaiming his famous hyperbole and shouting “Woo!”

The 68 year-old recently revealed on a wrestling podcast that he was on a drinking bender when his intestines burst open back in August. He was hospitalized and in a coma for 10 days. He still somehow managed to do his trade mark “Woo!” here with Bad Bunny even though it sounds like he probably should be resting his lungs. Can’t stay young forever, Natureboy.

The video clocking in at just under four minutes, manages to pack a bunch of weirdness in.

Just watching these two on a rooftop jumping around feels weird. Flair is probably thinking to himself, “Who is this dude? How did I get up here? Have I taken my fiber?”

You can’t deny there was clearly a lot of bling on this set.

Bunny captioned this on his Instagram with “BE THE ROLEX WEARIN’, DIAMOND RING WEARIN’, KISS STEALIN’, WHEELIN’ DEALIN’, LIMOUSINE RIDIN’, JET FLYIN’ SON OF A GUN!”

Less dope however is how the music video shows women.

The video takes us through what appears to be a house party between Bunny and his crew and a few scantily clad women, who aren’t doing much but twerking and sucking lollipops. The dancing and bikinis are par for the course now for music videos like these, but you start to wonder is that all that Rap, Reggaeton and Latin Trap videos have to offer? Outside of being problematic, it’s kind of lazy at this point.

Oh, there’s also a monkey humping a sofa and chewing on money, I shit you not.

The song bumps, even if the video is questionable, except for this one dope moment between Bunny and his die hard fans.

His fans love him, there’s no two ways about it. But maybe let’s do better when it comes to how we treat and show women in Latin Trap videos? It doesn’t seem like anyone knows how to these days.

Bad Bunny Is His Own Competition At 2021 Billboard Music Awards + More Latin Nominees

The nominees for this year’s Billboard Music Awards are out. In one of the Latin categories, all three of Bad Bunny’s quarantine albums are nominated. The Puerto Rican superstar faces off with himself, J Balvin, and Anuel AA.

The winners at the Billboard Music Awards are based on sales, streaming, and chart performance.

The Billboard Music Awards gathers its nominees and winners from data on the charts this past year. If no one was buying or streaming your music, then you won’t get nominated. If you know the sales figures of the nominees, it’s easy to tell who will end up taking the award.

Good luck to whoever is nominated against Bad Bunny.

It should be no surprise that Bad Bunny dominated the nominations in the Latin categories. YHLQMDLG peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart and El Último Tour Del Mundo became the first all-Spanish album in history to hit No. 1. To whoever is nominated alongside Benito, good luck.

All three of Benito’s albums that he dropped during the COVID-19 quarantine are nominated in one category.

In the Top Latin Album category, Bad Bunny is impressively nominated three times for YHLQMDLG, Las Que No Iban a Salir, and El Último Tour Del Mundo. His competition in the category includes fellow Boricua Anuel AA’s Emmanuel and Colombiano J Balvin’s Colores albums.

Karol G, Becky G, and La Rosalía face off for Top Latin Female Artist.

The Top Latin Artist nominees are all men, including Bad Bunny, his previous competition, Maluma, and Ozuna. In the Top Latin Male Artist category, it’s Benito against Ozuna and J Balvin. In the Top Latin Female Artist category, Chicana singer Becky G faces Colombiana Karol G and Spanish pop star Rosalía.

All of last year’s big hits are nominated in Top Latin Song category.

The Top Latin Song category captures all of the bangers from the past year. Bad Bunny is nominated twice for “Yo Perreo Sola” and “Dákiti” with Jhay Cortez. Maluma and The Weeknd’s “Hawái” remix is also up for the award with the Black Eyed Peas’ “Ritmo (Bad Boys for Life)” with J Balvin and Ozuna’s “Caramelo” remix featuring Karol G and Myke Towers.

The Billboard Music Awards will air on May 23. The live show will be broadcast on NBC and hosted by the Jonas Brothers’ Nick Jonas.

Alternative Boricua Singer iLe Dazzles in “No Es Importante” Music Video

Alternative Boricua Singer iLe Dazzles in “No Es Importante” Music Video

Puerto Rican singer-songwriter iLe puts on a show in her music video for “No Es Importante.” The former Calle 13 member dances like there’s no tomorrow to her new single.

iLe was part of Calle 13 with her brothers.

Ileana Mercedes Cabra Joglar, who is better known as iLe, was in the Boricua group Calle 13 with her brothers, Residente and Visitante. Before their hiatus in 2015, the trio won an astonishing 21 Latin Grammy Awards. Calle 13 also has three Grammy Awards.

iLe collaborated with Residente and Bad Bunny on a musical takedown of Puerto Rico’s governor in 2019.

iLe went solo in 2016 with her debut album iLevitable, which garnered her the Latin Grammy Award for Best New Artist. She recently made waves around the world when she teamed up with Residente and fellow Boricua Bad Bunny for “Afilando Los Cuchillos.” The song was released in 2019 in response to Puerto Rico’s corrupt governor Ricardo Roselló. Following massive protests on the island, Roselló resigned from the job.

iLe moves on from a bad romance in “No Es Importante.”

“No Es Importante” marks iLe’s first release of 2021. In the tender tune, she sings about letting go of a toxic relationship. This is one of the most understated yet bluesy releases yet. Her epiphany that she deserves better is powerful.

“‘No Es Importante’ is a song that speaks from an intimate perspective,” iLe said in a statement. “When you need to make yourself realize that someone has been inhabiting your mind for too long and it’s time to let go.”

In the music video, she performs the heck out of the song.

In the music video for “No Es Importante,” iLe does karaoke to her own song in Puerto Rican restaurant. Even though no one is paying attention to her, she has the time of her life under a disco ball. When she disconnects the microphone at the end, it feels like she’s broken free of the romance.

“No Es Importante” previews iLe’s upcoming album. She won the Latin Grammy for Best Alternative Song last year thanks to her collaboration “En Cantos” with Natalia Lafourcade.
