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.

Quarantine just got a little easier.

In a recent post to their Instagram pages, rappers Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion confirmed that they are dropping a new collaboration that we didn’t see coming.

And it’s one that we all could most certainly use right now.

In a post to her Instagram page, Cardi B announced that she’s collaborating with Megan Thee Stallion on a new song called “WAP.”

The new song is the first lead track from Cardi since she dropped “Press” in 2019. Earlier this year in March, Megan dropped her album “Suga.”

“WAP” drops this Friday and by the looks of the song’s cover art, it’s gonna be quite the hit. Or at least be very taste? Megan and Cardi can be seen posing for the cover art wearing matching “WAP” gold hoops and with their hair woven in together into one bun. To top it off, their tongues are sticking out like they’re ready to rock.

The latest pairing is a follow up to Megan’s recent power couple collab for “Savage” with Beyoncé. It also her newest song since her recent recovery from a gunshot wound.

Earlier last month, Megan revealed that she was shot in both of her feet.

Speaking about the shooting, which happened on July 12, Megan said “I see… a lot of people that have been very supportive and sending prayers, and I just really appreciate that” she said during the live stream. “I saw the hotties doing a lot of things, like writing letters on Tumblr and DMing me all the time, and I just want to say thank y’all so much, because y’all have really been the ones helping me get through this.”

“I was shot in both of my feet,” she explained. “I had to get surgery to get the bullets taken out. And it was super scary… Thank God that the bullets didn’t touch bones; they didn’t break tendons. I know my momma or my daddy, my granny, had to be looking out for me with that one because where the bullets hit at it missed everything.”

Of course, Cardi B and Megan fans were quick to flip.

Literally we’re all pumped.

Girl groups are uniting.

And we’re all ready for it to reach #1.

And we all have questions about what WAP is supposed to mean?

It’s all a mystery but we’re here for the guesses.

“WAP” drops this week on August 7, this Friday.

Premios Juventud 2020 is not going virtual, like most other major events. Instead, the awards show is going to be held in-person but with a virtual audience. Here’s who you can expect to take the stage this year.

The Premios Juventud 2020 is going on as planned, just with a virtual audience.

The awards show is celebrating its 20th year this year and the show is going on. The show is being aired from Miami, one of the worst-hit areas in the country for Covid-19, but the show promises to follow all safety standards based on local health guidelines. Here are some of the people you can expect to perform.

Natanael Cana

Cana will be giving corridos tumbados some massive exposure at the awards show. The genre of music is an exciting mix of corridos with trap and urban influences. The sound is something else and fans are excited to see the genre given some love on the stage.

CNCO

The boy band CNCO has become a beloved addition to Latin music. The group was formed after the first season of “La Banda,” a music competition show looking for the hottest new sound. Safe to say that the show’s judges did a good job putting this group together.

Rafa Pabön

Pabön is a major voice of Conciencia Collective and Black Lives Matter. The musician released a song called “Sine Aire” after the George Floyd protests that brought Black Lives Matter to the forefront of American culture. Conciencia Collective hosts weekly talks with We Are Mitú promoting advocacy in the music industry.

And, of course, host Sebastián Yatra.

Yatra will be joined on stage with Danna Paola to perform their duet “No Bailes Sola.” The awards show will definitely be a nice escape from our collective Covid reality. There might not be any fans at the show but the performers are all ready to give a great show to the virtual audience.
