Bad Bunny Reveals That He Was Shooting Scenes For ‘Narcos: Mexico’ Before The Pandemic And Fans Are Losing It

Still craving more Bad Bunny? Yea, me too. Despite two chart-topping albums and starring on the cover of Rolling Stone (being the first Latino Urbano artist to do so – I might add!), Benito isn’t even starting to get tired.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Bad Bunny let it slip that he was actually in the process of filming scenes for Narcos: Mexico before the Coronavirus pandemic hit.

From rapper to actor, Bad Bunny is looking to expand his portfolio. The Puerto Rican reggaetónero is currently quarantine with this partner, Gabriela, at an Airbnb in Puerto Rico. But just last week, he made history gracing the cover of Rolling Stone. Hidden in the cover story, by Suzy Exposito, was the admission that the superstar was in Mexico shooting scenes for Narcos: Mexico when the pandemic hit.

Like most series, production for the popular crime drama came to a halt in light of the COVID-19 outbreak. Bad Bunny is looking on the bright side of it all though, telling the outlet, “Maybe I needed the rest!”

Whether or not he “needed” the rest, there is no denying that it is well-deserved. At the time of the mid-March interview, the Grammy award-winning artist was having a great start to his year. His album Yo Hago Lo Que Me Da La Gana, translated “I Do Whatever I Want,” became the record holder as the highest-charting Spanish-language album in the U.S. He also participated in the experience of a lifetime when he joined Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, and J Balvin on state at the Super Bowl halftime show.

And apparently adding ‘actor’ to his resume has long been a goal of the ‘Ignorantes’ singer.

While it’s only a matter of time until Bad Bunny can hopefully get back to work, his acting debut should lead him well on the way to accomplishing another goal. 

“One of my goals is to be the voice of an animated character in Spanish,” he said in his Rolling Stone interview.

Now that you think back to the end of season two, it’s kind of obvious that there was more to come in the way of a likely season three. After all, the epic show chronicles the action-packed War on Drugs (from Colombia to Mexico) with no shortage of interesting narratives and even more interesting characters.

What started off as a show largely about infamous Colombian drug dealer Pablo Escobar has now grown into its own successful franchise with multiple story lines that make the show truly addictive. Not to mention the show has featured some of the best names in Latino actors, from Diego Luna and Michael Peña to Pedro Pascal and Wagner Maura. Now we can look forward to adding Bad Bunny aka. El Conejo Malo aka. Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio to the star-studded lineup. It also means it’s going to make the wait until 2021 (when the show is expected to make it’s season three debut) that much more difficult.

Bad Bunny Defeats The Miz, Announces U.S. Tour Dates at WWE Wrestlemania

WWE

Bad Bunny made all his dreams come true this weekend at Wrestlemania. The Puerto Rican superstar defeated his WWE rival The Miz and announced a U.S. tour.

Bad Bunny and The Miz finally faced off in the ring.

Bad Bunny made his Wrestlemania debut on Saturday night. After the past few months of a growing rivalry with Mike “The Miz” Mizanin, the two took it to the ring in a main event match. Benito walked out to his song “Booker T,” an homage to the WWE legend. It was exciting to hear the announcer say, “From Vega Baja, Puerto Rico: Bad Bunny!” Benito teamed up with Damien Priest against The Miz and John Morrison. After a few high-flying moves, the Boricua duo emerged victorious.

Like many wrestling fans, The Miz was impressed by Bad Bunny’s Wrestlemania debut.

The WWE caught up with The Miz and Morrison after their defeat. The Miz echoed much of the WWE fandom’s thoughts that night after seeing Bad Bunny commit to his performance in the ring. “I can’t believe I’m actually going to say this, but he gained my respect,” The Miz said. Morrison made a bad pun after saying there was a “luck factor” involved because “rabbits are lucky.”

Triple H helped Bad Bunny announce his 2022 U.S. tour.

During night two of Wrestlemania, Bad Bunny dropped his surprise announcement of his 2022 U.S. Tour. In the clip, WWE legend Triple H thanks Benito for his “amazing” job at Wrestlemania and then passes him a suitcase. While sitting on top of his El Último Tour Del Mundo big rig, Bad Bunny finds a microphone inside of the suitcase.

Bad Bunny’s U.S. Tour will kick off on Feb. 9 in Denver. From dates revealed so far, the tour will run until April 2022. The tickets go on-sale on Friday, April 16, at 12PM local time.
