Bad Bunny plays with gender and sexuality in new video

Bad Bunny plays with sexuality and gender in his new music video, Caro which opens with him singing then continues with his vocals but a female model voicing the song. The video shows him living in a pink house and having his nails painted. Bad Bunny was famously refused service at a nail salon in Spain, allegedly because he is a man, and took to Twitter to loudly protest. “…With last month’s release of the music video for "Caro,” a cut from his late-2018 debut X 100pre, the Puerto Rican rapper came out as ally to the LGBTQ community,” writes Lucas Villa in MTV News. Bad Bunny performed at the Grammy’s Feb. 10, where other Latinx artists, like Camila Cabello and Cardi B. made history.
