Bad Bunny sweeps 10 Latin Music Billboard awards

Bad Bunny dominated the Billboards Latin Music Awards gala this Thursday by winning ten awards in an emotional ceremony in which Juan Gabriel and Johnny Ventura were honored and the careers of Daddy Yankee, Paquita la del Barrio and Manna.

Bad Bunny was the big winner of the night, taking 10 of the 22 awards he aspired to, including artist of the year, song of the year, for “Dákiti” , and album of the year for his album “YHLQMDLG . 

“Thank you all for always supporting my music. I dedicate this award to all those who make music out there, who have not had the same exposure or are not recognized. I was like that too and here I am now. Thank you for continuing to make good music “said the Puerto Rican artist when he received the award for album of the year.

However, neither the awards nor his outfit changes, or that he appeared for the first time at an event with his girlfriend, Gabriela Berlingera, were the most talked about of Bad Bunny on the Latin Billboard.

At one point during the gala, the Puerto Rican artist got up from his chair to adjust the height of the microphone of the legendary Paquita la del Barrio.

“Thank you, useless,” replied the so-called Guerrilla of the bolero to the Bad Rabbit as a way of gratitude, causing laughter from those attending a gala in which the Mexican was recognized with the lifetime achievement award.

The list of the most awarded of the night also includes Jhay Cortés, who won three Latin Billboards, for “Dakiti” , his song with Bad Bunny.

The Black Eyed Peas tied for the same number of awards, while Karol G, Sergio Lizarraga’s Banda MS, Eslabón Armado, Price Royce, Maluma and The Weeknd had two each.
