At 9:40 p.m., global music and Puerto Rican icon Bad Bunny took the stage at Philadelphia’s Made in America music festival to kick off the most acclaimed performance of the weekend festival.
"Benito, Benito, Benito, Benito!" shouted the fans on the Ben Franklin Parkway as they waited to hear the first song of the set.
With a scenery alluding to his most recent album, Un verano sin ti, Bad Bunny took the Rocky Stage seated in his beach chair accompanied by his little red cooler full of drinks. "Moscow Mule," was the first song that got the fans singing and jumping.
"Philadelphia wants perreo?" he asked to the audience as soon as he finished with his first song.
Immediately, another of the most listened to songs from his new album, "Me porto bonito," began to play. While Bad Bunny sang his part, the avalanche of people in the audience replaced Chencho Corleone singing the chorus of the song.
In addition to playing songs like "Efecto," "Tití me preguntó", "Party" and "Neverita," Bad Bunny took advantage of the moment to perform a medley of his most memorable songs since he began his career in mid-2016 and his international recognition in 2018. One of those songs was "Estamos bien" and "I like it."
As soon as "Yo perreo sola" sounded, a group of women near the AL DÍA team didn’t hesitate to get together to dance and empower themselves with the song. The same happened with "Safaera," another song from the past album, YHLQMDLG.
"Callaíta", "La difícil, "Si veo a tu mamá", "Bichiyal" and "Yonaguni" were other songs that the audience sang loudly from the same album.
In total, Bad Bunny played over 23 songs.
"Where are the Latinos in Philadelphia?" called the singer to motivate the fans.
Minutes from the end of his performance at Made in America, Bad Bunny started singing "Ojitos lindos," a song he original features alongside Bomba Estéreo. The public did not hesitate to start singing it with their eyes closed and without stopping to dance.
On the last day of Made in America, over 50,000 people arrived at the Parkway. Some talented Latin American musicians who stood out on Sunday were: Fuerza Regida, Ryan Castro, and Chimbala.
The entire lineup is curated by rapper Jay-Z on an annual basis.
