Christina Aguilera Performs ‘Mi Reflejo’ Throwback and ‘Beautiful’ at Big Concert for Small Business

Christina Aguilera threw it back to 2000 to sing her Spanish-language hit “Pero Me Acuerdo de Ti” on Feb. 7. She performed as part of an all-star roster during the post-Super Bowl event Big Concert for Small Business.

Xtina surprisingly performed the hit from her Mi Reflejo album.

With countless hits to her name, it was curious for Aguilera to perform “Pero Me Acuerdo de Ti” from her 2000 Latin album Mi Reflejo at the concert. She belted the trap-lite version of the song with ease. Xtina also crooned her classic anthem “Beautiful” from 2002’s Stripped album. She was showing support for the small record shop businesses.

Christina Aguilera appears to be teasing her hotly-anticipated second Latin album that’s been in the works for years. The “Pero Me Acuerdo de Ti” performance was a reminder to the world that she dominated the Latin music scene 20 years ago.

Aguilera added Latin Grammy-winner to her name with Mi Reflejo.

The Grammy-winner added a Latin Grammy to her trophy case when Mi Reflejo took home Best Female Pop Vocal Album in 2001. She won against Mexican pop stars like Paulina Rubio and Thalía and Italian singer Laura Pausini. Mi Reflejo hit No. 1 on Billboard‘s Top Latin Album charts and it was certified six-times Platinum in the U.S.

“I am getting back to my roots and exploring who I am now as a grown woman who doesn’t have to cover my own English material in Spanish, but as a woman who can draw from my own personal experiences and express that with honesty,” she told Billboard last year about the new album. “Having survived decades in this business, I am proud to tell the truth about what that means to me.”

With Selena Gomez now tapping into the Latin music market, 2021 could be the perfect time for LatinXtina to strike again. She posted a photo last year hanging out with Spanish singer Rosalía, so there could be a collaboration with those two coming soon.

Bad Bunny Nearly Kissed Rosalía During His ‘Saturday Night Live’ Debut

Bad Bunny Nearly Kissed Rosalía During His ‘Saturday Night Live’ Debut

Bad Bunny made his Saturday Night Live debut on Feb. 20 as a musical guest. As expected, he was joined by Spanish singer Rosalía for a steamy performance of their duet “La Noche de Anoche.”

Bad Bunny and Rosalía turned up the heat on SNL.

As we predicted, one of Bad Bunny’s two performances was for his latest El Último Tour Del Mundo hit “La Noche de Anoche” with Rosalía. Both artists stared into each other’s eyes as they performed the reggaeton bop. The crowd screamed when Rosalía sang, “Dime papi.” Benito and Rosalía took the embracing from the music video to the next level when they nearly kissed at the end of the performance. There was a lot of brushing of their cheeks that had the crowd screaming more.

Bad Bunny and Rosalía’s romance for “La Noche de Anoche” is just for on-screen purposes. Benito is in a relationship with his girlfriend Gabriela Berlingeri and Rosalía is rumored to be going out with Boricua singer Rauw Alejandro. She has uncredited backing vocals on Alejandro’s song “Dile a Él” from his Afrodisíaco album.

For his second performance, Bad Bunny opted for a ballad.

Currently Bad Bunny has the biggest hit Latin song in the world with “Dákiti” featuring Jhay Cortez. For his second performance, he opted to perform the heartbreaking ballad “Te Deseo Lo Mejor.” With that song he was able to show off the alternative rock edge to his El Último Tour Del Mundo album.

In the episode of SNL hosted by Bridgerton star Rége-Jean Page, Bad Bunny also acted in the digital skit “Loco.” He played a house plant that encouraged Ego Nwodim to “buss it down if you’re mentally ill.”

In other Bad Bunny news, he retained his 24/7 Championship belt during last night’s WWE Elimination Chamber special. He notably slapped his rival on the series, Mike “The Miz” Mizanin, in the face.

What can’t Bad Bunny do?

Selena Gomez’s Fans Are Disappointed by Her Premio Lo Nuestro Debut

For Selena Gomez’s fans that were waiting for her to make her Premio Lo Nuestro debut, the final product was not what many of them expected. In what was a much-hyped moment of the awards show last night, the pop star appeared in a music video instead of delivering a performance.

Premio Lo Nuestro knew it had the viewership of Gomez’s fans.

Gomez’s performance, or “presentation,” was the most heavily-promoted ahead of the awards show that celebrates the best in Latin music. She was thought to be making her debut at Premio Lo Nuestro as a Latin music artist.

Premio Lo Nuestro knew that Gomez’s fans, the Selenators, were tuned in, so they saved her for the second last performance of the three-hour award show. Her special presentation was introduced by Latin boyband CNCO.

Her fans waited nearly three-hours… for a music video.

Instead of seeing Gomez hit the stage at the award show or appear in the pre-recorded virtual performance, her fans were treated to alternative shots of her “Baila Conmigo” music video. Even though featured artist Rauw Alejandro was there in-person, his part of the song was also footage from the music video.

After a night of impressive performances from artists like Daddy Yankee, Gloria Trevi, Ivy Queen, and Marc Anthony, seeing Gomez’s alternative music video of “Baila Conmigo” instead of a performance was a low point. This is not to say that the video was bad, but her fans were hoping for more from what was advertised as her Premio Lo Nuestro debut. A pre-recorded performance from home or the dance studio would’ve been better than this.

Gomez’s debut Latin EP Revelación will be released on March 13. She has so far previewed the hotly-anticipated EP with the singles “De Una Vez” and “Baila Conmigo.”
