The Puerto Rican artist Bad Bunny has tested positive for covid-19, which is why he could not participate in situ at the 2020 American Music Awards, where he was recognized as “Favorite Male Artist – Latino” and “Favorite Album – Latino” for his album “YHLQMDLG”.
This was reported this Monday by the Lacoustyle representation agency in a statement in which it indicates that this is why last night his participation was virtual from his home in Los Angeles (California), from where he presented the first Latin category of the awards, “Favorite Female Artist – Latina ”.
Initially, Bad Bunny was scheduled to sing his world hit “Dákiti” live with Jhay Cortez -the theme that became the number one song on the world music charts- “but unfortunately, the artist confirmed that he has contracted the virus of the covid-19 and had to cancel his presentation ”.
On the other hand, the Puerto Rican urban artist has been included in the cast and will be one of the executive producers of the film “American Sole”, in whose group of producers the American comedian Kevin Hart and the basketball player Chris Paul stand out.
Some actors who will participate in this film are Pete Davidson, member of the cast of the television program “Saturday Night Live”; O’Shea Jackson Jr, eldest son of legendary American rapper Ice Cube; Camila Mendes, and rapper Offset.
The film is directed by Ian Edelman, who has already had experience directing other Puerto Rican actors, including Luis Guzmán, in the film “Puerto Ricans in Paris” (Puerto Ricans in Paris).
Bad Bunny is also expected to stand out in his role as a guest star in the third season of the Netflix series “Narcos: Mexico.” in which he will play the character of Arturo “Kitty” Páez, a member of the Ramón Arellano Félix “Narco Juniors” gang.
The ragman will be a rich young man from high society who falls for a cartel.
This third season will be set in the 90s, when the drug business began to globalize.
“American Sole” is about two young men in their twenties, Davidson and Jackson, burdened with debts from their college studies, start selling athletic shoes and whose sales bring them big profits by achieving the “American dream.”
