Bad Bunny took advantage of his speech this Wednesday by winning the Best Latin Artist Award at the Billboard Music Awards to launch a message in Spanish against sexist violence on American television.
“I’m not a social message artist, this song is not a social message, but let’s learn that You can dog, be polite and respectful at the same time. If she doesn’t want to dance with you, respect. She perrea alone, “said the Puerto Rican after interpreting his success I dog alone.
Bad Bunny won in a category in which Anuel AA, J Balvin, Ozuna and Romeo Santos also competed.
“This award I want to dedicate to all women around the world, especially Latina women and from Puerto Rico. Without you there would be neither music nor reggaeton, so enough sexist violence against women, we are going to educate now in the present for a better future, “he said.
The speech was issued after his performance at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood with Ivy Qeen and Nesi, surrounded by figure skaters but without public due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It’s not the first time that the artist takes advantage of a television platform to claim social issues. Earlier this year he showed his disgust for the murder in Puerto Rico of transgender woman Alexa (Neulisa Luciano Ruiz), with a vindictive message during her performance in the program The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.
The singer wore a skirt and a white T-shirt with the message: “They killed Alexa, not a man in a skirt.”
In the musical section, this has been the year in which the success of Bad Bunny has finished exploding worldwide.
He first performed at halftime in the Super Bowl, the most watched television event in the United States, alongside Shakira and Jennifer Lopez.
He then released his album YHLQMDLG (I do what I want), which debuted in the number one in most Latin countries and in the top two of the US sales charts, becoming the highest ranking Spanish album throughout history in the North American country.
Encouraged by rave reviews, he launched an online compilation of discarded songs called The ones that weren’t going to leave and killed during the quarantine, which immediately made it to the charts.
