Bad Bunny: The Rework Powers List:

Earlier this year Bad Bunny wowed a Grammy audience of millions when he opened the show with a dynamic, turbocharged performance entirely in Spanish, paying homage to his native Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic – both of which have seen more than their fair share of tragedies brought on by natural disasters.

Later that night, the singer and rapper, whose first name is Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, won the Grammy for Best Urban Music Album for the Spanish-language album “Un Verano Sin Ti.”

The album, which was also nominated in the Big Four category for album of the year, featured the song “El Apagón”, in which he protests the injustice committed against Puerto Ricans who have suffered frequent power outages. electricity, sometimes with deadly consequences.

Bad Bunny took to the stage to criticize LUMA Energy, the private company that runs the territory’s power system, for repeated grid outages — as well as the officials who awarded their contract. And the music for the nearly 23-minute video for “El Apagón” stops at 53 seconds to highlight news footage of an explosion that caused a massive blackout in Puerto Rico. Later, at 4:35 a.m., Bad Bunny stops the music once again to highlight a documentary about the gentrification of the territory, including interviews with displaced Puerto Ricans.

The singer and rapper, who managed to find time in his busy schedule for a small but hilarious role in the 2022 film “Bullet Train”, is also a strong supporter of LGBTQ rights, drawing attention to crimes committed against members of the community, including Alexa Negrón Luciano, a transgender woman murdered in Toa Baja, Puerto Rico.
