Bad Bunny, James Corden’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ is a must-watch

We’ve all been there, Benito.

Reggaeton celebrity and relatable king Bad Bunny revealed Wednesday on an episode of “The Late Late Show With James Corden” that he nearly missed his Grammys efficiency as a result of he received caught in L.A. site visitors. The Puerto Rican musician, whose actual title is Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, opened the Grammy Awards this 12 months at Crypto.com Arena with an electrifying medley of “El Apagón” and “Después de la Playa.”

When requested by Corden throughout a “Carpool Karaoke” phase about his late arrival to the venue, Bad Bunny sighed and muttered, “Oh, f—.”

“What happened?” Corden pressed.

“You know what happened,” the “Un Verano Sin Ti” artist replied. “L.A. traffic!”

Recalling the tense sequence of occasions, Bad Bunny mentioned that throughout the eight-hour hole between rehearsals and showtime, he figured he would have sufficient time to chill out, work out, take a bathe and all the pieces can be “all right.” Big mistake: He arrived on the Grammys roughly eight minutes earlier than he was scheduled to go onstage

“I was freaking … I was sweating,” the vocalist informed Corden. “I was like two minutes from the Crypto arena. I was very, very nervous — very anxious — ‘cause yes, I was the opening act.

“I learned a big lesson,” he added.

While driving by way of the streets of Los Angeles in Corden’s signature “Carpool Karaoke” automobile, the Grammy winner and the late-night host jammed to Bad Bunny’s “Tití Me Preguntó”; Bad Bunny and Jhay Cortez‘s “Dákiti”; Bad Bunny, Cardi B and J Balvin’s “I Like It Like That”; Harry Styles‘ “As It Was”; and Ariana Grande and Zedd‘s “Break Free.”

Of all the songs, “Break Free” seemed to elicit the most enthusiastic response from Bad Bunny, who was in the middle of telling Corden that he knew the lyrics to the Grande hit better than any other English-language track when he dramatically stopped himself to belt the chorus with passion.

Corden also inquired about the origins of the name Bad Bunny and how the recording artist’s household and associates reacted when he determined to undertake the moniker.

“The first concept of the artist I wanted to be was this kind of artist that they don’t reveal his identity,” Bad Bunny mentioned. “I wanted to use a bunny mask … ‘cause I never wanted to be so famous. But then I just went with the flow.

“A bad bunny — no matter how bad — is still looking cute. That’s me. … I’m a good guy. I’m cute.”

Toward the top of their tour, Bad Bunny made a quick pit cease to show Corden a few of his favourite wrestling strikes. The “Me Porto Bonito” hitmaker and lifelong wrestling fan has made memorable appearances at a few WWE occasions in recent times and is about to host the group’s Backlash occasion stay from the Coliseo de Puerto Rico José Miguel Agrelot in San Juan on May 6.

“WWE said, ‘Wow, this guy is a fan of us, so we should do something with him.’ So they asked, ‘You wanna be a referee? You wanna be on the side?’” Bad Bunny informed Corden. “I said, ‘I want to fight. … I want to be in the ring. I want to fight for real.’”
