Bad Bunny stuns Grammys 2023 with all-Spanish opening act | New York Post

  • Published on Feb 4, 2023 veröffentlicht
  • Was it going to be Adele? Was it going to be Harry Styles? Or was it going to be the ever-elusive Beyoncé opening the 65th annual Grammy Awards at Crypto.com Arena - the first time the show has been held in LA since COVID shut the world down?
    In fact, the primo placement went to Puerto Rican sensation Bad Bunny, who made history with “Un Verano Sin Ti,” the first Spanish-language LP to be nominated for Album of the Year.
    And now, he’s making Grammys’ history with what might be the most full-throttle all-Spanish opening extravaganza ever.
    Kicking off his medley of “El Apagon” and “Despues De La Playa,” Bad Bunny, 28, brought the fiesta through the audience - no social distancing in 2023! - Bad Bunny made up for his no-show at last November’s American Music Awards, where he was the top nominee.

    • TruthHurts
      TruthHurts Month ago +1

      @JohzuaJabbarTV Exactly. Numbers can be manipulated in the stream era very easily. I am not saying this is the case for Bad Bunny though. But it is a fact that the stan fanbases will easily inflate the streams numbers by just clicking a button in Spotify and played the same song over and over. There are articles about it. Look at BTS. Another artist inflated by the streaming. Actually, now that I mention them, BTS must be the #1 artist in the planet too since 2020 going for the same metric. They have sell more records and chart better than Bunny in the USA and Europe. I would like to see what the Benito stans will say about this.

    • BlueDreamKush23
      BlueDreamKush23 Month ago +1

      @TruthHurts This is the issue with hispanics. You guys really love putting others down because it’s not you’re guy at the top. Is there beef w Dominicans and Puerto Ricans because this is some crazy hostility here.
      Also, if he ain’t selling out shows in Europe then what does that say about other Latin artists? Exactly. You would think one would want Bad Bunny to be more global that way it paves the way for your fav artists to get on that wave. 🤔 hmmm
      Keep finding it laughable though because he is the number 1 artist in the world. And charts do matter. You just simply hate the numbers telling you different from whatever delusions you feed yourself because it’s shows how much reach a Puerto Rican artist you hate has.

    • TruthHurts
      TruthHurts Month ago +1

      @BlueDreamKush23 The charts mean nothing my friend. Bad Bunny will never be able to sell a whole stadium in Europe unless the whole Latino community attends. That's why I find laughable when some say he is the #1 artist in the world right now. Most of those streams im Spotify don't come from Europe, Asia and netheir Africa. Justin Bieber, Drake, Sheridan, those are to me more global artists.

    • TruthHurts
      TruthHurts Month ago +1

      @BlueDreamKush23 He is right though. Bad Bunny was the one inserting into Dominican culture and this performance is the example. Most of the rest of his comments are on point as well. And yeah, I too agree that PR is the main powerhouse in Latin music right now and has been for a while. Before the 2000s it used to be Mexico and way before Fildel Cuba. Colombia is catching up and at one point I really thought they were about to displace Puerto Rico as the #1 powerhouse. But the BadBunnymania is still going on. I still don't see it. J. Balvin and Maluma already peaked. Anyways, It looks like the Latin scene is changing. I think reggaeton pop is starting to die out.

      @Genghis Can! 12.4 million is dismal. Between the 1970s and 2000s the ratings were consistently between 20 and 40 million, and that was with less population. A slight increase from the dismal low of last year is still terrible ratings.
