Bad Bunny at the MTV Video Music Awards
On Sunday, Bad Bunny took the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMA’s) with a performance broadcasted live from Yankee Stadium in New York. Not only was he the first musician to ever broadcast live from the iconic stadium, he is also the first non-English performer to take home a Moonman for Artist of the Year.

Other nominated musicians included: Lizzo, Harry Styles, Jack Harlow, Lil Nas X, Ed Sheeran and Drake.
Since 2020, Bad Bunny has been the most streamed artist around the world, and still continues to stay on top of the charts with his hit album “Un Verano Sin Ti,” which was released in May 2022 and is still going stronger than ever. It is the second Spanish album to debut number one on the Billboard 200 chart, and the most streamed album on Spotify in 2022.
“I have been saying it and I always believed from the beginning that I could become great. That I could become one of the biggest stars in the world without having to change my culture, my language, my slang. I am Benito Antonio Martínez from Puerto Rico. To the whole world. Thank you!” he said during his acceptance speech, which was entirely in Spanish.
