For his first song, the Puerto Rican star appeared alongside singer-songwriter Rosalia for a performance of their recent collab “La Noche De Anoche.” Set against a neon-lit background, the artists romantically serenaded each other before embracing tightly for the finale. Of course, the crowd ate it up.
Bad Bunny took an even more minimalistic approach for his second SNL performance, appearing completely alone on stage to deliver the emotional Spanish-language “Te Deseo Lo Mejor,” from his latest album, El Último Tour del Mundo. Wearing black sunglasses and a knitted short-sleeve shirt, the 26-year-old rapper and singer delivered the heartfelt performance while sitting atop a staircase.
Those who looked closely may have noticed a WWE 24/7 Championship belt draped over his leg during the song. Bad Bunny picked up the unique prize after pinning wrestler Akira Tozawa on WWE’s Raw in mid-February. A longtime wrestling fan, Bunny also took center stage at WWE Royal Rumble in late January to perform his track “Booker T.”
Elsewhere on SNL, which was hosted by Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page, Bad Bunny made a cameo as a rapping houseplant during a hilarious musical sketch titled “Loco.” The hip-hop-themed skit featured SNL‘s Ego Nwodim rapping about how the COVID-19 pandemic has slowly driven her insane. At one point, her plant comes to life as Bad Bunny, only to reveal that she’s “mentally ill.”
Later on, the rapper appeared again in a sketch called “Sea Shanty” during which — you guessed it! — Page, the musician, and the cast sang sea shanties, a trend which recently went viral on TikTok. In the bit, Bad Bunny plays the non-too-bright navigator of a whaling vessel. His map? A simple crayon drawing of a sailboat on some water.
