This live concert had a unique obstacle: oncoming traffic.
Singer Bad Bunny took to the New York City streets Sunday to put on a roving show on top of a subway car-like cage atop a flatbed truck. The Puerto Rican songwriter, 26, started in the Bronx at 6 p.m. and drove south, performing on his mobile stage as his driver navigated towards Manhattan, through Washington Heights and then Harlem.
Fans were seen on the sidewalks along the Bunny trail, doing their best to keep up with the vehicle as it made its way downtown.
The concert made its final stop at Harlem Hospital, where Bad Bunny — born Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio — thanked front-line workers for all they have done during the pandemic, NBC reported.
The event was livestreamed and performed in collaboration with Verizon and Univision’s music events arm, Uforia, in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month.
“We are extremely excited to celebrate the richness of Latinx culture during Hispanic Heritage Month with this one-of-a-kind livestreaming experience, and also commemorate the Puerto Rico community’s resilience on the third anniversary of Hurricane Maria, in partnership with Verizon,” said Univision’s president of radio, Jesus Lara, Billboard reported. “We are proud to showcase the artistry of Bad Bunny who has had such a profound impact on our culture and the music industry at large.”
The singer’s fans quickly got wind of the concert and shared their excitement on social media.
Bad Bunny’s performance was the first in a series of pop-up shows set to be livestreamed by Uforia once a month through the end of the year, with upcoming shows to be announced soon.
While singing and dancing on top of the truck, Bad Bunny also released a new music video for his song “Una Vez.” The clip racked up over 1.6 million views within 12 hours of debuting.
The performer previously made headlines earlier in quarantine for documenting his nude sunbathing on Instagram, sharing three photos of himself taking in some vitamin D, including one picture where he’s showing off his bare booty.
