Puerto Rican superstar gets wildly extravagant for “Bichiyal”

Thursday night, and El Conejo Malo certainly did not disappoint.Rolling up in a snazzy white Bugatti amid dozens of motorcycles and three-wheelers, Bad Bunny entered the scene with his hit “Bichiyal” off his second studio albumYHLQMDLG. He then transitioned with “Si Estuviésemos Juntos,” channeling a 1970s-era pop balladeer backed up by an all-female band. “Maldito año nuevo, me botaron del trabajo,” he sang with conviction, (“Damn new year, I was fired from my job.”) He closed off his performance at the Hiram Bithorn stadium in his hometown of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

That’s fine, I am not criticizing that style of song. But street reggaetón, O.G. reggaetón, perreo … it deserves a space in the pop world.”

Ricky Martin, who was featured in Bad Bunny’sX100Pre, added: “[Bad Bunny] is a creative genius. Benito has reconfirmed the fact that music has no barriers. I think the way he does things connects at a deeper level regardless of language and cultural differences.”
