Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny announced that he’d be taking a break in 2023 to focus on his emotional health and enjoy his achievements. And why not? From giving a stellar performance in Marvel’s Latino live-action film to creating a buzz at the Grammys with “Un Verano Sin Ti”, Bad Bunny has had a marvellous 2022. Read on to know about his plans for 2023.
A Well-Deserved Rest After Hardwork
Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, aka Bad Bunny, is all set for some well-deserved rest in 2023. After the huge success of his album “Un Verano Sin Ti”, Bad Bunny announced during his cover interview with Billboard that he’ll be taking a break in 2023. During his latest cover story, he revealed: “2023 is for me, for my physical health, my emotional health to breathe, enjoy my achievements.”
Bad Bunny announced that he would be celebrating his success by going around and even though he has some sporadic commitments, he would be doing all that without pressure. He said: “We’re going to celebrate. Let’s go here, let’s go there, let’s go on the boat. I have a couple of sporadic commitments, and I’ll go to the studio, but there’s no pressure. Remember yourself, cabrón. You’ve worked your ass off.”
2022: Year Of The Bunny
I don’t know about others, but Bad Bunny truly deserves some “me time”. From making success with his lead role in ‘El Muerto’ (Marvel’s first Latino live-action film) to securing the nomination for Album of the Year at both the 2022 Grammys and the 2022 Latin Grammys with his highly acclaimed album “Un Verano Sin Ti”, this year has truly been historic for the star.
Bad Bunny, whose real name is Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, also starred alongside Brad Pitt in the thriller “Bullet Train”. The 28-year-old rapper also opened up about his lead role in Marvel’s Spider-Man spin-off, “El Muerto” where he plays a superpowered wrestler against Spider-Man.
During his interview, Bad Bunny stated, “I love wrestling. I’m a pro wrestler, I don’t know if you know.” Yes, the singer made his Wrestlemania debut last year. As for the role, he stated, “This is why I love this character. I think it’s the perfect role for me. It will be epic.” The movie hits theatres on Jan. 12, 2024.
That being said, Bad Bunny has managed to bag real success since his breakthrough in Cardi B’s 2018 hit song “I Like It” alongside J Balvin. Then, he created a buzz with his song “Mia” featuring Drake. In 2020, Bunny became the first non-English to become Spotify’s most-streamed artist of the year. In 2021, he achieve the same record again.
However, as an artist he has too faced a fair share of career flips. During his interview, Bad Bunny revealed: “My career has had many flips, many points of inflection where I’m here, and then suddenly I’m there. So that tour was very, very cabrona, very euphoric. When I went to the stadiums, my only point of reference was the stadium shows in Puerto Rico [in December 2021]. Those two shows in Puerto Rico were hard, hard, hard.”
“I aged three years, I swear. I enjoyed it in the end, but there was a lot of pressure,” he spoke about these tough shows. “And I thought this tour would be the same, but from the very first show in Orlando, it has been so much fun,” Bunny continued. “I generally don’t go out much, but on this tour, both in the U.S. and here.
“I’ve spent time with the crew and the dancers, we’ve gone out to dinner, it has been more chill. I’ve tried to really enjoy the moment,” he shared about his El Último Tour del Mundo tour when it hit bigger venues in comparison to his last time on the road, noting the “flip” he witnessed in his career.
The artist has recently received two Grammys, four Latin Grammys, eight Billboard Music Awards and thirteen Premios lo Nuestro awards. He was also felicitated with the “Artist of the Year” at the 2022 Apple Music Awards. While he has no intentions to stop here, he surely deserves a break to rejuvenate because well, mental and emotional health matters!
