Mi gente, our favorite genre-bending Latin lover has done it again – El Conejo Malo AKA Bad Bunny’s “Yo Perreo Sola” video has arrived – and everyone is taking notes. After just three days online, the video has racked up over 40 million views. While this M/V definitely brings the kind of upbeat energy you’d expect from a Bad Bunny classic – he added a little extra sazón on top this time, by going full drag – complete with huge breasts and a custom weave. The video is electric – with flashing lights, multiple outfit changes, and insane twerking – it’s everything and more you’d want from a BB original.
El Conejo Malo’s yaaas-kween-slay-that-runway look directly reflects the overarching themes of female empowerment throughout the song. The title lyric, “Yo perreo sola,” meaning, “I twerk alone” has already become a seed for inspiration on social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok. There is even a bizarre moment where Bad Bunny grinds on…what looks like…himself! I’m not sure what kind of empowerment that is, but we’re here for it.
Let’s face it – Bad Bunny delivers on so many levels. He is unapologetically himself, while simultaneously standing up for what he believes in – every damn time. He has given voice to the voiceless on multiple occasions, including his tribute to Alexa Negrón Luciano, a trans woman who was senselessly murdered in Puerto Rico by bigots. We all could use a little more Bad Bunny spirit within – so thank you, Conejo Malo, for delivering once again. Check out the video below:
