Bad Bunny built his own Puerto Rican cultural empire by disrupting the United States’ cultural economy with his Spanish music and art in Spanish from Latin America's streets. Here’s how he did it.

Disclaimer: ArtRKL reached out to Bad Bunny’s team in all the ways possible with no success to get an interview with him for this story. 

In Part I of Bad Bunny’s Puerto Rican cultural empire, you learned that his contemporary music and art are a disruption in the United States’ cultural economy. In Part II, you dove deep into understanding why his work discusses politics, race, and colonialism. In Part III, you went on an intense journey diving deep into gender and sexuality through his art.


Now, you’ll watch our short documentary [SPEAKING NON-ENGLISH]. This is Jenny Morris’s story. She’s a Costa Rican Black trans woman who’s a self-taught model and artist. Morris is a muse when creating art. She enjoys manifesting her muse identity through reggaeton and Bad Bunny’s relatable art and music. She’s a strong and empowered person who’s overcome many challenges in Costa Rica as a Latin American Black trans woman.


Sit back and enjoy our film.
