Puerto Rican latin trap performer Benito Ocasio, aka Bad Bunny makes his way to the Houston area this Thursday, August 30, 2018 at the Smart Financial Center.
Latin trap is typically in Spanish and contains a blend of singing and rapping, while still in the signature beat of reggaeton.
It is being reported that Ocasio, while working at a supermarket as a bagger, Bad Bunny distributed his music as an independent artist. Bad Bunny's song "Diles", on SoundCloud, caught the attention of DJ Luian who signed him to his record label, Hear this Music. By DJ Luian signing him, he was able to work with more well-known Latino artists. Since then, he has earned multiple top-ten entries on the US Hot Latin Songs chart. His breakthrough single, "Soy Peor", established him as a forerunner in the Latin American trap scene and reached number 22 on the Hot Latin Songs chart. "Soy Peor's" lyrics and mood simultaneously perform loss and sexual desire and have been described as embodying a "politically vital feeling of the here and now."
