At one point, his Live reached a whopping 320,000 viewers, beating out Drake and Tory Lanez.
Bad Bunny surprised his fans over the weekend with an epic Instagram Live that took place at 9:00 p.m. ET on Saturday (May 2).
“I will be thanking you personally before the world ends and listening to the album YHLQMDLG] really drunk with you,” the Puerto Rican artist announced on his feed moments before. He also promised to share new music that “hasn’t come out and perhaps never will.”
With a drink in hand, Bad Bunny kicked off his live dancing to classic bachata hits before telling his fans he was going to play his album in the order of his favorite songs. His Daddy Yankee-assisted track “La Santa” was atop his list, revealing to fans that the song was not going to come out at all if Daddy Yankee did not jump on the track. He followed with “Bichiyal” and “La Dificil.”
Bunny’s IG Live lasted more than three-hours long with over 250K viewers connected at all times. At one point, his Live reached 320K viewers, beating out Drake and Tory Lanez.
