The World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) "Royal Rumble" will be the event where Bad Bunny will fulfill his dream of singing in wrestling, as he had previously mentioned.
Puerto Rican urban artist Bad Bunny will fulfill one of his dreams next Sunday, when he participates in the legendary wrestling event "Royal Rumble" of the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).
Bad Bunny's participation will be specifically to perform the song "Booker T", homonymous name of the former American wrestler and included in his most recent album, "El Último Tour del Mundo".
"My first LIVE performance of 2021 will be at the ROYAL RUMBLE!!!" tweeted Bad Bunny. The "Royal Rumble" will be streamed live online on the WWE Network platform.
"Performing in the Royal Rumble is a childhood dream come true. I've been a lifelong WWE fan and I'm excited to get on stage and entertain fans around the world," added the Puerto Rican artist.
It will also be Bad Bunny's first time performing "Booker T" live. WWE Music Group Senior Vice President Neil Lawi noted that Bad Bunny is "at the top of the music industry, and as a pop culture icon with strong ties to WWE and our fans around the world."
"We are very excited to provide a global platform for his first live performance of 'Booker T' as we prepare to host WrestleMania," added Lawi in reference to another of WWE's big events to be held on March 28.
In "Booker T," Bad Bunny highlights that he is at the "peak" of his game, just like Booker T did in his career. The track also includes a music video directed by Stillz and features Booker T dancing in the "perreo" style, a dance known in the urban genre.
Booker T joins other professional wrestlers who have appeared in Bad Bunny music videos. The others are Ric Flair in the video "Chambea" and Stone Cold in "Quién tú eres". The song "Booker T", in turn, reached eighth place on Billboard magazine's Hot Latin Songs chart last December.
Upon its official release, "El Último Tour del Mundo" became the first album entirely in Spanish to top the Billboard 200 music chart in its 64-year history.
The album "El Último Tour Del Mundo" also managed to become the album with the most weeks -five weeks- on the Top Global Albums chart on Spotify. Bad Bunny's production surpassed Pop Smoke's "Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon", which spent four weeks.
Bad Bunny also has seven nominations for the "Lo Nuestro" Awards, including Artist of the Year, Album of the Year and Urban Album of the Year for "YHLQMDLG", Urban Song of the Year for "La Difícil" and Urban Song/Trap of the Year for "Vete".
