Bad Bunny has officially changed the game. In our new era of virtual concerts, the rapper introduced an innovative way to connect with fans and perform new music. All on the roof of a moving flatbed truck, Bad Bunny stopped traffic throughout New York City on Sunday night as they drove around delivering vibes. The rapper left fans in the streets and online in a complete frenzy as it took many by surprise. The concert began at Yankee Stadium while the Puerto Rican reggaeton star made his way to the front of Harlem Hospital, where he paid homage to front-line workers during the coronavirus pandemic.
Donned in all black, and rocking a new hairdo and goatee, the Latin Grammy award-winning artist performed his first live show of 2020, presented by Uforia Live. A massive audience of more than 10 million live viewers watched the historic virtual event, while other excited fans chased him down streets with their cellphones in hand throughout the city.
The concert was held in celebration of Hispanic Heritage month, and it also fell on the third anniversary of Hurricane Maria, which devastated Bad Bunny’s home of Puerto Rico. He gave a special thanks to the Latino community for supporting him and offered words of encouragement for the ongoing devastation around the glob.
“With a lot of faith in God, I sense that good things are coming,” he said. “I know we are going through very difficult times, but I have hope that people doing things with their heart, spirit, faith and hope, we’re going to move forward.”
The Latin sensation was also joined by other reggaeton superstars. J Balvin, Sech and Mora made iconic virtual appearances.
