Get Ready! Bad Bunny Set To Perform Historic Online Concert To Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month

Notice to all Bad Bunny fans! This is not a drill! The reggaetonero is officially back on stage with an historic concert planned for this weekend (September 20).

In recent weeks, Bad Bunny has been silent on social media. “Goodbye, I’m gone,” he said to his fans on May 19, telling them that he wanted to take a break after the release of his album YHLQMDLG last February, then again after his surprise drop of Las que no iban a salir.

But now the singer appears to be gradually making his musical comeback. Just a few weeks ago, San Benito published an unreleased track in which he sends a message to those who criticized him for seemingly going quiet with so much going on in the world. Confident that there are bigger problems in the world, El Conejo Malo sings, “They are fighting because they gave me the title of composer of the year but not for what really matters.”

In an announcement, Uforia, The Home of Latin Music, said that they’d be conducting exclusive live stream performances once a month until the end of the year under the banner of Uforia Live. And Bad Bunny is the first artist to launch the series!

“We are extremely happy to celebrate the richness of Latin culture during Hispanic Heritage Month with this one-of-a-kind live broadcast experience,” said Univision Radio President Jesus Lara.

“We are proud to present Bad Bunny’s artistry, which has had such a profound impact on our culture and the music industry in general,” he continued.

“Bad Bunny is one of the most popular artists in the world. He constantly manages to break international barriers of language and stereotypes, becoming a global icon of culture and entertainment.”

For all you San Benito fans, the concert will take place on September 20, is completely free, and will be available to watch on Bad Bunny’s YouTube channel, Twitch, and the Uforia app. Stay tuned because Uforia will soon announce the details on upcoming dates and artists.

Despite spending most of the year in quarantine in his native Puerto Rico, Bad Bunny has been extremely busy. From gracing magazine covers and making history in the process to surprise releasing an entire album, Bad Bunny has kept his fans on their toes.

The reggaetonero was also set to perform two sold-out shows on October 30-31 at San Juan’s Hiram Bithorn stadium, but they’ve been canceled in the wake of Covid-19. So this will be the first chance for San Benito fans to witness live renditions from his record-breaking 2020 album YHLQMDLG, and, if we’re lucky, from his follow-up surprise album Las Que No Iban a Salir.

The “Yo Perrea Sola” singer also collaborated with Dua Lipa, J Balvin, and Tainy on a hit single, “Un Día (One Day)”. He’s also set to be recognized with the Hispanic Heritage Award for Vision in recognition for his impact as an artist and activist.

Bad Bunny has quickly become one of the most beloved artists in the world. The Puerto Rican artist’s career has skyrocketed over the past couple of years and there is no slowing him down. Spotify’s 2020 wrap showed that Bad Bunny is indeed one of the most popular artists in the world.

Bad Bunny’s music is taking over the world and there is proof.

The singer is Spotify’s most-streamed artist in 2020 according to the platform’s yearly round-up. Last year Bad Bunny was the fifth most-streamed artist in the world so this was definitely a bigger and better year for San Benito.

Bad Bunny is not the only Latino at the top of the Spotify streaming charts. J Balvin came in at third place giving Latin music more recognition as one of the most popular genres.

Bad Bunny also come in wit Spotify’s most stream album of the year.

“YHLQMDLG” is Bad Bunny’s second studio album and it has been a quantifiable success. The album reached No. 1 in the U.S. on the Independent Albums Billboard, Top Latin Albums Billboard, and Latin Rhythm Albums Billboard charts.

Last year, Camila Cabello represented for the Latinas. The Cuban-Mexican-American pop star was all over the Spotify charts. Namely, Cabello was the fourth most-streamed female artist and “Señorita,” her collab with Shawn Mendes, was the most streamed song on Spotify for 2019.

Bad Bunny kept himself super relevant while in quarantine because his social media game is strong.

Bad Bunny kept his music coming while in quarantine. The Puerto Rican super star kept making things happen. He even created a quarantine anthem that he recorded with his significant other. Who could forget when “En Casita” hit Soundcloud? It was Bad Bunny’s way fo make quarantine worth it and trying to make sure that everyone did what they need to do to get past this pandemic.

Latin music’s popularity is growing fast around the world.

Artists like Bad Bunny, Karol G, and J Balvin are taking the Latin sounds and taking them international. More and more people are tuning in to the songs that make our own communities bump. With the way things are going, Latin music’s world takeover is not going to stop anytime soon.

Although so many of us were left to celebrate Thanksgiving without friends and families this year, we can all agree that we have at least one thing to be grateful for: Bad Bunny’s third album of 2020.

Despite all the odds imposed against us thanks to a global health crisis, Bad Bunny has made 2020 his year. He’s now released three complete albums along with several solo tracks and has even started work on his acting debut in the Netflix series Narcos: Mexico.

And although we’re grateful for this new album – which has some serious bops on it – many aren’t exactly celebrating the release. Many fear that this may be his last album, as rumors swirl that San Benito is going into retirement.

Bad Bunny surprise released his third album of 2020: El Último Tour Del Mundo.

Bad Bunny is setting fire to 2020 with album after album and hit after hit – and all of it despite much of the world’s attention being on the Coronavirus pandemic. Despite all the odds, our San Benito has released three albums, including his most recent one, El Último Tour del Mundo, which dropped on Thanksgiving.

The artist took to social media to announce the new album, which debuted at midnight on Thanksgiving. In addition to his recent hit, “Dakiti,” with Jhay Cortez, the album also features collaborations with Rosalía and ABRA.

El Último Tour del Mundo follows the March release of YHLQMDLG, which made history as the highest-charting Spanish language album ever, and his surprise follow-up in May, Las Que No Iban a Salir. 

Along with new music, Bad Bunny also blessed us with an incredible video for the album’s lead single.

The album came out at midnight Thanksgiving morning and racked up millions of views within hours of its release. But Bad Bunny wasn’t done surprising us yet.

Following a day full of Thanksgiving festivities, Benito also dropped a star-studded music video for the debut single from the album, “Yo Visto Así.”

The video features appearances from Ricky Martin, Sofia Vergara, Ryan Garcia, Karol G, Luka Sabbat and more, as Bad Bunny sings about the fact that he he’s going to dress however he wants to, no matter how anybody else feels about it. Now that’s an anthem I can get behind!

But many on social media are worried that this could be the reggaetonero’s final album.

Of course, fans of El Conejo Malo were quick to celebrate the new album. In fact, two tracks from the album (“Dákiti” and “La Noche de Anoche”) are already two of the top 10 most streamed songs on Spotify. But others became suspicious given the album’s name, El Último Tour del Mundo. It caused speculation among fans wondering if he was planning on retiring.

Fans are worried that the album might actually live up to its title and signal Bad Bunny’s early retirement. Although he hasn’t yet confirmed or denied the rumors, the truth is that the reggaetonero is already working on new music with Rosalía, so we still have at least a bit more music to look forward to.

There’s speculation that the music giant wants to spend more time to focus on his acting career, especially now that it’s been announced he’ll be making his acting debut in Netflix’s Narcos: Mexico.

It all stems back to a track from Yo Hago Lo Que Me De La Gana.

On “<3,” the final track from Yo Hago Lo Que Me De La Gana,  Bad Bunny  promised fans he would release another album in 9 months–and he did exactly that. 

“Y en nueve mese‘ vuelvo y saco otro / Pa‘ retirarme tranquilo como Miguel Cotto,” Bunny said on the project he released back in February, promising both another release in November and also, his retirement. 

Now that he’s made good on the first promise, it remains to be seen as to whether or not he will follow through on the second half. Hopefully, that’s not the case.

There’s even rumors that El Conejo might be leaving music – at least temporarily – to focus on politics.

Aside from subtle hints dropped by Bad Bunny himself and a flurry of rumors from concerned fans, a prestigious Cuban clairvoyant has also come forward with her own predictions on the future of Bad Bunny.

Mhoni Vidente, a Cuban fortune teller, has said that Bad Bunny will retire from music to devote himself to politics: “About Bad Bunny I see that in the future he will be president of Puerto Rico, governor, that he is going to be in politics and that he is going to bring a new era in political matters to all his people in the United States and Puerto Rico.”
