Bad Bunny has taken over this year with his creativity from being dressed up as a transgender in his “Yo Perreo Sola” music video, to dropping albums back to back. Now, the Puerto Rican artist is taking over Playboy by being the first male to be featured on the cover since the late Hugh Hefner.
On July 7, Playboy released the cover of Bad Bunny, which is their first digital magazine to be available. The magazine features several photos of the reggaetón artist confidently posing with painted nails, jewelry, a pink Razer phone and draped in a Versace toga.
The story focuses on Bad Bunny’s stardom along with his career, bridging reggaetón and Hip Hop, and speaking up for the Queer community. It also touches base on being comfortable with sexuality, whether that be dancing in the club with someone or simply enjoying sexual encounters.
“I think that sex is a giant world, and everyone is free to see it as they want and do it with whoever they want, however they want, with infinite possibilities,” he said in the Playboy article. “In the end, we are human beings. Everybody feels, everybody falls in love with whoever they’re meant to.”
The reggaetón artist expressed that since he has a platform of fans who support him, he wants to use it wisely and educating as many people as possible. He also elaborated on gender-fluid music and visuals.
“I’ve been trying to make sure everybody feels part of the culture of Reggaeton,” he said in the article. “I want to make sure they feel that they have someone there, that friend that can stand up for them.”
