At the center of an all-encompassing performance filled with riveting moments and plenty of rhythmic transition was Bad Bunny, who delivered a thrilling eight-minute performance on Thursday (Oct. 5) at the 30th annual Billboard Latin Music Awards.
The Puerto Rican hitmaker showed up in blue denim overalls and an L.A. Dodgers caps, chilling like in a bonfire by the beach kind of setting, as he sang “Moscow Mule.” Suddenly, the vibe got lit with the Dominican dembow cut “Tití Me Prenguntó,” and smoothly transitioned to “Neverita.”
In one moment, the performer got off stage and said what up to the crowd in the front, which included Grupo Frontera. Bad Bunny also wore a diamond chain with a gigantic studded cowboy boot charm.
He then sang “Where She Goes” and “Un Preview,” first backed by a group of cowboy-hat-and-boot-donning dancers. The curtain opened and the scene transformed into a New York-like setting with pizza shops and even a Rolls Royce. Meanwhile, the Bunny was surrounded by more dancers, masked and this time wearing black suits.
Earlier in the evening, Bad Bunny won several awards, including the coveted Artist of the Year and Song of the Year for “Tití Te Preguntó.” He garnered a total of 15 nods.
