The “Un Día” hitmaker is nominated in two categories: pop duo/group performance and Latin pop album for his February studio effort, “YHLQMDLG.”

“I am so happy and grateful for the academy and the fans — people who support me,” Bad Bunny said. “Wow. Singing in my language now

Hugh Grant says lead role offers dried up after he developed a “bad attitude”

Hugh Grant returned to our screens this year in The Undoing and has received rave reviews for his performance but the 60-year-old has revealed that lead role offers haven’t always come in thick and fast.

Speaking in a new interview with The Los Angeles Times, the Notting Hill actor said he took a break from acting after developing “a bad attitude”.

“I developed a bad attitude from about 2005 onwards, shortly after Music and Lyrics. I just had enough. Then I went back in 2009 and made another film.

“At that point, it wasn’t me giving up Hollywood. Hollywood gave me up because I made such a massive turkey with that film with Sarah Jessica Parker [Did You Hear About The Morgans?].

“Whether I wanted to or not after that, the days of being a very well-paid leading man were suddenly

Bad Bunny caps week of awards and Grammy-noms with new album

NEW YORK (AP) — Fans of Bad Bunny are used to expecting something different each time he releases new music.

He’s done it since his first studio album, 2018’s “X 100pre” (“Forever”); then with “Oasis”, his collaboration with J Balvin in 2019, and last February with his award-winning “YHLQMDLG,” a 20-track project which explored love and loss through a combination of trap and reggaetón.

Now he is surprising fans with “El Último Tour del Mundo” (“The Last Tour of the World”), a 16-song collection written during the pandemic and released Friday in which he plays with alternative music, punk, pop and even rock ‘n’ roll.


“I am not a fan of repeating the same formula,” the singer says. “Each album that I’ve made has it’s own identity.”

“El Último Tour del Mundo” was mostly written by Bad Bunny and features collaborations with American singer-songwriter Abra, Spanish sensation Rosalía and Puerto

10 Essential Tracks on Bad Bunny’s ‘El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo’: Staff Picks

Recorded in Puerto Rico, Los Angeles, Mexico, El Ultimo Tour del Mundo was born during the Coronavirus pandemic. Below, check out 10 essential tracks as recommended by Billboard Latin editors Griselda Flores and Jessica Roiz.

“Te Mudaste”

Though Bad Bunny took a different melodic route on his new album, “Te Mudaste” stays true to the essence of reggaeton. Towards the end, the beat completely transforms into an instrumental synthwave ’80s pop sound. Singing about the last time they made love and all the good times they had together, the nostalgic lyrics are about a person reminiscing about a long lost love.

“Maldita Pobreza”

A standout track on the album is the rock-en-español-inspired “Maldita Pobreza.” With a late ’80s/early ’90s vibe, Bad Bunny proves he’s unafraid to experiment with different sounds and tap into different genres. Stepping away from his ultra perreo and reggaeton sound YHLQMDLG, “Maldita Pobreza” is

Bad Bunny’s ‘Tonight Show’ Performance Of ‘Yo Visto Asi’ Goes Pop-Punk

Latin pop star Bad Bunny is primarily thought of as a reggaeton artist but his versatile style is becoming increasingly harder to define by the day — especially after the release of his new album El Último Tour Del Mundo. He released the new album just today with very little promotion but it’s already running up its streams and turning the perception of Bad Bunny upside down. Appearing solo on The Tonight Show to celebrate the release, Bad Bunny goes full Juice WRLD, blending pop, punk, and trap for a DIY performance of “Yo Visto Así.”

Bad Bunny was recently diagnosed with COVID-19, which already forced him to cancel one performance at the American Music Awards, but he refused to let that stop him from appearing on The Tonight Show. Instead, he played the whole set from his home, sitting on a couch with a guitar, digital drum

Bad Bunny on How His ‘Dark’ New Album Helped His Mental Health During Quarantine (Exclusive)

Bad Bunny is here with a new album — and it seems this new record was just as much for him as it was for his fans. El Último Tour del Mundo explores a darker place than the reggaetonero’s last albums, but as he tells ET’s Denny Directo, it’s “part of me.” 

“This album is more feeling. It’s more sadness and heartbroken,” he explains, contrasting it with YHLQMDLG, which was released in February, and Las que no iban a salir, which dropped in May. 

“It’s dark,” Bad Bunny says of El Último Tour del Mundo. “But with feeling. I love it. It’s like, a part of me.” 

The record represents a different side of Bad Bunny, but also a different view of the world. Its name symbolizes just how much everything has changed amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

“It’s not the last world tour. It’s the last tour of the world…
