Itwas last weekend (Sunday) this reggaeton star celebrated his appearance on MTV's Music Awards with a show tipping moment his handlers most likely proudly approved.
(From People.com) "During the Puerto Rican star's performance from Yankee Stadium for the MTV Video Music awards, he surprised the crowd when he gave his backup dancer a big smooch.
Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio
AKA Bad Bunny
The "Moscow Mule" singer, 28, performed his hit song "Tití Me Preguntó" and in between belting out the lyrics with energetic dance numbers, he leaned over to give his female backup dancer a kiss. Shortly after, he turned the other way and gave his male backup dancer the same sentiment.
His performance came immediately after he was named artist of the year, where he was up against Drake, Ed Sheeran, Harry Styles, Jack Harlow, Lil Nas X and Lizzo. He made history by being the first non-English-language performer to win the coveted prize." Read more @People.com (Click Here)
Bad Bunny Performs "Titi Me Pregunto"
(From Out.com) "Bunny’s last major statement about his sexuality came up during an interview with the Los Angeles Times. The reggaeton star noted that sexuality “does not define” him, adding: “At the end of the day, I don’t know if in 20 years I will like a man. One never knows in life. But at the moment I am heterosexual and I like women.” Instead of skirting around the topic and giving non-answers, Bunny very clearly identified as a heterosexual man who doesn’t rule out being with men in the future. In other words, he is open about his sexuality having a certain fluidity." Read more @Out.com (Click Here)
Puerto Rican latin trap performer Benito Ocasio aka Bad Bunny makes his way to the Houston area this weekend in a stadium tour at Minute Maid Park.
Latin trap is typically in Spanish and contains a blend of singing and rapping, while still in the signature beat of reggaeton.
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.
(From All Music.com-Timothy Monger) Bad Bunny is a prolific Puerto Rican singer, rapper, and producer based in San Juan who has become a dominant voice in Latin trap and a general trendsetter for música urbana since arriving on the scene in 2016. In addition to placing dozens of singles on charts ranging from Latin pop and reggaeton to dance and hip-hop lists, he has also notched a succession of chart-topping albums including his 2018 debut x100pre and a pair of 2020 albums, YHLQMDLG and El Último Tour Del Mundo. Bad Bunny's sweeping commercial appeal lies in his chameleon-like approach, melding Latin soul, pop, and R&B, hard-hitting trap beats, and reggaeton with a slippery delivery that ranges from humor and pathos to heartbreak and anger. He is also one of the top collaborators in the música urbana movement, working regularly with contemporaries like J Balvin, Daddy Yankee, Rosalía, and Jhay Cortez. With 2022's Un Verano Sin Ti, Bad Bunny notched his fourth consecutive number one album.
Bad Bunny - Neverita
Born Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio in 1994, he began singing at five and always took it seriously. His biggest influences were Héctor Lavoe, Vico C, Daddy Yankee, and Marc Anthony. He studied audiovisual communication at the University of Puerto Rico at Arecibo and worked as a bagger at a grocery store while making his own music by night and posting it to SoundCloud. In particular, Bad Bunny's song "Diles" caught the ear of DJ Luian, who signed him to his Hear This Music label in 2016. His breakthrough single, "Soy Peor," issued in December of 2016, peaked at 22 on the Hot Latin Songs chart, and established his trap-heavy sound with the masses. Its video rang up more than 650 million views. Appearances with Ñengo Flow, Arcangel, and Ozuna soon followed, and in early 2017 he kicked off an especially prolific run with the singles "Pa Ti," "Loco Pero Millonario," and "Dime Si Vas a Volver," amid numerous collaborative tracks with Poeta Callejero, Farruko, Brytiago, Almighty, and others. In late 2017, Bunny, J Balvin, and Prince Royce scored a hit with the collaboration "Sensualidad." The singles kept coming in 2018 as he notched another Latin hit with the solo track "Amorfoda" and collaborated again with J Balvin and American rapper Cardi B on her single "I Like It," which topped Billboard's Hot 100 in the summer of that year. On Noche Buena (Christmas Eve) of 2018, the most important day in the LatinX year, Bad Bunny issued his debut long-player, x100pre, to universal acclaim. The set was co-produced by reggaeton legend Tainy and La Paciencia (Roberto Rosado), with the exception of the club jam "200 MPH," which was helmed by Diplo. Its songs ranged from the pop-punk of "Tenemos Que Hablar" to reggaeton ballads including "Solo de Mí" and "Si Estuviésemos Juntos" to tense hip-hop on "Caro." It entered the Top Latin Albums chart at number one in early 2019, and in January peaked at number 12 on the Top 200. Read more @All Music.com (Click Here)
Claims Are Missing
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."

(From All Music.com-Andy Kellman) Funk-indebted acts characterized by lazing rhythms, falsetto vocals, and commercial aspirations were scarce in 2014, when Jungle capitalized on their breakthrough single "Busy Earnin'" with a self-titled album that hit the U.K. Top Ten. By the time the band had been nominated for a Mercury Prize and released the first singles from their follow-up full-length, the novelty tag had worn off and they had become fixtures of the revered XL Recordings label. The group continued expanding their sound with 2018's For Ever, also a Top Ten success, and 2021's Loving in Stereo.
JUNGLE - GOOD TIMES / PROBLEMZ
Led by childhood friends Josh Lloyd-Watson and Tom McFarland, musicians originally identified as J and T, Jungle formed in early 2013 and wasted little time. Connected with the Chess Club label, they released their first singles -- the hypnotic and relaxed dance grooves "Platoon" and "The Heat" -- that July and October. The striking accompanying videos, featuring only the moves of six-year-old B-girl Terra in the former, and a roller-breaking duo in the latter, racked up millions of plays Read more @All Music.com (Click Here)

This Labor Day Weekend
Weekend of Friday September 2nd-4th, 2022
HOB's 1st Friday for Houston’s #1 Reggae Party featuring Live Reggae band, DJs, and plenty of vibes!!!
An Evening With Peter Hook
& The Light Joy Division
Doors Open: 7:00 PM
(From All Music.com-Michael Sutton) The pioneering sounds of the highly influential English bands Joy Division and New Order were dominated by the droning basslines of Peter Hook. In the late '70s, Hook's ominous bass enabled Joy Division to carve portraits of profound despair. Although the late Ian Curtis' harrowing lyrics and downcast vocals are often credited for Joy Division's bleak beauty, many of the group's songs were driven by Hook's sinister, throbbing bass. While badly tuned guitars were the rage during the punk era in late-'70s England, Hook's bass playing instilled the importance of rhythm in punk rock, helping to inspire a generation of dance-oriented new wave bands.
After Ian Curtis hanged himself on May 18, 1980, Hook joined the other surviving members of Joy Division in New Order. He performed the lead vocals on New Order's first album, Movement ("Dreams Never End" and "Doubts Even Here"), and his bass-playing style became increasingly melodic as the band developed its use of sequenced, synthesized sounds. He also played some keyboards and electronic drums. Between the release of 1983's Power, Corruption & Lies and 1985's Low-life, Hook took part in the short-lived Ad Infinitum, an act featuring Lindsay Reade (then-wife of Factory boss Tony Wilson) and members of Stockholm Monsters; they released a cover of Joe Meek's "Telstar." In 1990, after New Order released Technique, Hook formed a side project dubbed Revenge and released One True Passion. Collaborating with Dave Hicks (guitar, keyboards) and Chris Jones (keyboards), Hook combined elements of techno and hard rock; he also sang. A second Revenge album, 1992's Gun World Porn, was released before New Order resumed with the 1993 album Republic. Read more @All Music.com (Click Here)
