On last week’s episode of the R.O.A.D. Podcast, the crew shared their opinions on which club song had the most annoying and relentless requests of all time.
The fellas also discussed the widespread reaction from DJs across the country to DJ Crooked‘s recent Bad Bunny video clip and the “I Already Played Bad Bunny” stickers and merch being sold by DJ Nonstopp.

Add “traffic-stopping live performer” to the list of Bad Bunny‘s reggaeton success story, as the Puerto Rican star performed in largely Latinx sections of Harlem, Washington Heights, and the Bronx, NY on Sunday evening.
He performed atop a moving tour bus stylized to look like a graffiti-tagged New York City subway car. The event, sponsored by Univision’s Uforia radio broadcasting/music events portal, kicked off a series of monthly livestream concerts set to air once a month through the end of December via Uforia’s website, YouTube, Twitter, and Twitch.
The artist performed tracks from his February-released studio album YHLQMDLG, plus was joined for virtual duets with artists including J Balvin, who paired with Bad Bunny for “La Cancion.” “It was difficult for me to do a concert without an audience. I didn’t want to,” he told Billboard. “But I’m accepting the new reality, and I hope people enjoy this. We need it.”
Impressively, the event was produced in collaboration with Elite Media and Marketing (EMM), IDEKO, the Mayor’s Citywide Event Coordination and Management Office, The Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment, the NYC Department of Transportation, the NYPD, Harlem Hospital, and the Health and Hospital Corporation.

Veteran DJ/producer Junior Sanchez has dropped a house remix of J Balvin, Dua Lipa, Bad Bunny, and Tainy‘s latest reggaeton collaboration, “Un Dia (One Day).” The remix is available exclusively on DJcity.
Sanchez has remixed for a wide variety of artists throughout the years, including Madonna, Shakira, Daft Punk, and Gorillaz. He recently remixed Ty Dolla $ign‘s star-studded single, “Ego Death,” featuring Kanye West, FKA twigs, and Skrillex.
J Balvin, Dua Lipa, Bad Bunny, and Tainy have dropped “Un Dia (One Day),” a breezy reggaeton collaboration. The quartet have five top 10 Billboard Hot 100 singles between them in the past three years.
As an artist and producer, Tainy‘s achieved immense success during the pandemic. As well, the trio of J Balvin, Dua Lipa, and Bad Bunny could be the most popular stars in mainstream music at-present. The deep dembow benefits Latin trap’s most beloved emcees. The airy, yet seductive, and trance-like vibes benefit Dua Lipa’s vocals. If open-air clubbing needed a “song of the summer”-type anthem, it’s arrived.

After releasing his surprise album “LAS QUE NO IBAN A SALIR,” Bad Bunny made history last Thursday by becoming the first Latin urban music artist to make the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. The Puerto Rican star was also the first artist to have a Rolling Stone cover story done during the pandemic.
This historic article features a glimpse at the life of the Grammy-nominated reggaeton artist while quarantined in Puerto Rico.
The cover story, which was written by Rolling Stone’s Latin music editor Suzy Exposito, broke ground by being the magazine’s first article completely worked on by Latinas. It includes photographs by Bad Bunny’s girlfriend Gabriela Berlingeri, and it was transcribed and translated by Alex Douglas-Barrera.

With over 340 million streams on Spotify alone, the track peaked at No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart, and No. 52 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. It adds to a growing list of Spanish-language songs that have crossed over into the US mainstream.
