Snoop Dogg Is Happy Latin Music If Finally Getting The Respect It Deserves And He’s Also Planning A Collab With Bad Bunny

Snoop Dogg is a proven fan of reggaeton music as he has previously collaborated with artists like Daddy Yankee in the past. He’s also posted regular videos of himself on Instagram listening to banda music. So it’s no surprise that in a new interview he shared the news that he’ll soon be collaborating with Bad Bunny.

Snoop Dogg is showing love to the rising Latin rap scene.

In an interview with Ultra Fiesta, a Spanish-language music channel based in Miami, Snoop discussed the rising Latino music movement. He says he’s keeping an eye on some of the biggest Latin trap artists like Ozuna and Bad Bunny.

“Latin artists deserve respect, they make great music,” he said in the interview. “So it’s overdue, it’s long overdue, and I’m happy that a lot of artists are working with them because they make great music and it’s about time for the world to know that.”

When asked if there are particular artists that he’s listening to, he dropped a big announcement about an upcoming collab with Bad Bunny.

Snoop Dogg confessed that he will soon be recording a collaboration with Latin Trap star Bad Bunny. “Yeah, me and Bad Bunny finna do one real soon.”

He literally dropped one sentence and walked away with a smile on his face. Like, we need more details. When is the collab coming out? Who initiated the collab? We need answers and we need them now.

While no other details have been revealed about the collaboration or when it will be released, fans already can’t wait for it to drop.

“No way Snoop Dogg is going to do a collaboration with Bad Bunny, that is perfect,” @Arearagon tweeted.

Snoop Dogg has had some great collaborations in the past with artists like Pharrell and Akon. I don’t think we’re prepared to see what he’ll drop with an artist like Bad Bunny. It might just be a match made in heaven.

This musical combo has the makings of a huge summer hit.

Fans are excited about this upcoming collaboration and rightfully so. It seems like Snoop has been behind some of summers biggest hits like “Drop it like it’s Hot” and “I Wanna Love You.”

Some are wondering if the collaboration will inspire more rappers to work with some of the rising Latin artists.

It’s no surprise that Snoop Dogg has started many music trends. In 2011, Snoop broke the mold and worked with pop-star Katy Perry in the song “California Girls”. He showed it doesn’t matter how “tough” you are, it’s always possible to reach across the musical aisle to make some great songs.

Here’s hoping this is just the start of more Hip-hop artists working and producing music with some of reggaeton’s biggest stars.

Who Is Mari Pepin? Everything You Need to Know About the Puerto Rican Beauty Queen and ‘The Bachelor’ Frontrunner

As you probably know by now, a new season of the never-ending reality series “The Bachelor” has just started.

And this season is destined to be especially exciting–not just because of the promise of non-stop drama, but because the franchise has finally hired its first Black male lead, Matt James, after 18 years on the air.

And with the first Black “Bachelor” comes the most diverse group of contestants competing for the lead’s heart that they’ve ever had.

And one of the contestants that is capturing the hearts of both fans and Matt James alike is 24-year-old Puerto Rican-born pageant queen Mariela “Mari” Pepin.

On this season’s premiere episode of “The Bachelor”, Mari was immediately clocked by viewers as one of the front runners by the way that Matt reacted to meeting her. The former Wake Forest wide receiver was struck speechless by her beauty and couldn’t keep his eyes off her when she parted ways with him. It was obvious that Mari had made quite the first impression on him.

And because we love to see #representation on screen (and especially on reality TV), we decided to do our due diligence and find out as much as we could about this gorgeous and accomplished Latina. Here’s everything you need to know about Mari Pepin.

She’s Boricua–and proud of it!

Something that immediately endeared Mari to fans was the fact that she is so vocally proud of being Puerto Rican. In her first sit-down conversation with Matt, she opened up about how hard its been for her family to live through the relentless natural disasters that the island is going through.

She’s a military brat.

According to Mari’s personal blog, she spent the first few years of her life in PR before relocating to Germany because of her father’s military career. According to Mari, her unique childhood contributed to her love of traveling as an adult.

She was 2019’s Miss Maryland USA.

According to Mari’s official “Bachelor” bio, she began competing in pageants when she moved to Maryland as a teenager. She won Miss Teen Maryland and then went on to win the title of Miss Maryland. After that, she placed in the Top 10 of the Miss USA competition.

She’s wicked smart.

According to Mari’s LinkedIn page, she has a Bachelor’s degree in Communications from Towson University and she’s currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Marketing Intelligence from the same institution. It’s safe to say she values education.

She’s multilingual.

Not only does Mari speak both Spanish and English flawlessly, but she’s also fluent in French and American Sign Language.

Based on all this info alone, we can’t wait to see Mari Pepin crush this season of “The Bachelor”. Hopefully, this Boricua beauty will be popping up a lot on our screens for years to come!

As Bad Bunny Posts Shirtless Selfie Claiming To Be “At His Peak,” Here’s Proof That He Has Always Been A Thirst Trap

Bad Bunny has long known how to toy with our emotions. From his powerful lyrics that contain all sorts of important messages to his gender-bending rapping and vocal support for the LGBTQ community, Bad Bunny seems to check off all the boxes that make him a total stud.

And when the 26-year-old reggaetonero isn’t slaying the music game with yet another history-making album, he’s on Instagram flexing his best assets and quenching his loyal stans’ perpetual thirstiness.

Sure, it may not be as overt as say the thirst traps that Maluma is putting out there – I mean he is the face of a major Calvin Klein campaign – but it’s no less hot.

To help keep your mind off of the current hellscape that is the news cycle (and because, there’s never a wrong moment to thirst after El Conejo) here’s all the proof that Bad Bunny has long been one of the internet’s greatest thirst traps.

After posting a very hot shirtless selfie, Bad Bunny says that he’s “at his peak.”

Bad Bunny is once again getting his followers all worked up! San Benito took to Instagram to celebrate his muscled up and very sexy toned physique. “I’m at my peak,” he captioned the photo with. And yes, he definitely looks buffed up.

The “Estamos Bien” singer nearly broke the Internet with the photo, which has already racked up more than 4.7 million likes. Apparently, he’s not had any trouble keeping up with his workouts during the pandemic.

But this is just the latest sexy photo to pop up on the reggaetonero’s Instagram as of late.

This is not the first time the 26-year-old has treated his fans to provocative photos. In March 2020, he shared photos of himself sunbathing in the nude at his home in Puerto Rico, getting a line-free tan during the coronavirus lockdown. And these photos went everywhere as people DM’d the photo to friends to share in the thirst.

Then there was the video of him dancing in red undies…

El Conejo Malo also posted a video of himself in red boxers doing a sexy dance in March. “Today is Friday, today we drink, today we spend,” he captioned the video, quoting his song “Hoy Se Bebe, Hoy Se Gasta.”

But what makes him even hotter is his no BS, genuine, sense of himself.

Bad Bunny is the modern day icon that the community needs. By being himself, he is helping shift attitudes away from machismo culture and helping people feel comfortable being who they are.

In an interview with Paper magazine, he outlined this viewpoint perfectly.

“I’m not telling people, ‘Hey, paint your nails or color your hair, do this or do that,’” the 25-year-old said in his interview with Paper. “I’m simply saying… do what makes you happy, and to never limit yourself… Just be yourself, and be happy in that. And also not to criticize or judge, because maybe for you something’s bad or not bad — if you like or dislike something, that doesn’t mean everyone has to share your opinion. It’s about that: respect. It’s so basic.”
