On February 5th, 2023, Bad Bunny made history at the 65th Grammy Awards. Not only did he open the night with an electrifying dual performance of “El Apagón” and “Después de la Playa”, but he also became the first artist to receive a nomination for a Spanish-language album.
Bad Bunny, also known as Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, looked casual yet stylish in a white T-shirt, light-washed jeans and a backwards baseball cap. He got the crowd, including Taylor Swift, on their feet and dancing along to his hits. He then shouted in Spanish, “Where are the Latinos tonight in Los Angeles?”
Bad Bunny was nominated for album of the year for his album “Un Verano Sin Ti”, best música urbana album, and best pop solo performance for the album’s lead song, “Moscow Mule”. “Moscow Mule” is a powerful reggaetón beat about living in the present moment with someone you love.
In 2022, Bad Bunny was the most streamed artist on Spotify for the third year in a row. Apple Music also named him 2022’s artist of the year. He has previously won two Grammys and has received nine nominations. On April 14, the singer will headline Coachella along with Blackpink and Frank Ocean.
Bad Bunny’s history-making Grammy nomination is a testament to his talent, hard work, and dedication to his craft. His performance at the 65th Grammy Awards was a memorable one and showed the world why he is one of the biggest names in music today. We can’t wait to see what he does next!
