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.
