LOS ANGELES (CNS) — Councilman Kevin de León introduced a resolution on Friday declaring Saturday “Bad Bunny Day” in Los Angeles in honor of the Grammy-winning reggaeton superstar, who is playing at SoFi Stadium this weekend.
De León’s motion – which notes Bad Bunny’s cultural impact on the Latino community across the city and that about half of Los Angeles’ population identifies as Latino – was supported by all council members.
Bad Bunny, who was born in Puerto Rico, was scheduled to perform at SoFi on Friday and Saturday.
“The cultural impact of Bad Bunny will have a tremendous and positive impact on future generations and will redefine Latino culture in Los Angeles and beyond for years to come,” said De León.
Benito Antonio Martinez Ocasio, known professionally as Bad Bunny, was the most-streamed artist on Spotify in 2021 for the second year running. His album El Ultimo Tour del Mundo was the first Spanish-language album in 64 years to top the Billboard 200 chart.
The motion describes Bad Bunny’s Latin trap and reggaeton music as “transcending those genres by incorporating rock, punk and soul.”
