Bad Bunny has just unveiled a new music video for his single “Yo Perreo Sola” (in English: “I Twerk Alone”), and it’s as crazy as they come.
In the video, the Puerto Rican rapper goes shirtless and also introduces a new drag persona, wearing several different outfits suitable for competition in “RuPaul’s Drag Race” — including a red vinyl minidress and matching thigh-high boots.
“I wrote it from the perspective of a woman,” Bad Bunny told Rolling Stone of the single. “I wanted a woman’s voice to sing it — ‘yo perreo sola’ — because it doesn’t mean the same thing when a man sings it. But I do feel like that woman sometimes.”
In an interview with ET, J Balvin reacted to Bad Bunny’s drag persona.
“I love it,” he said. “It impressed me in a great way. I’m happy because we need diversity, we need to open our minds, we need to level up our consciousness and respect and be tolerant about sexuality.”
The lyrics of the song convey an important message, notes RS: “Te llama si te necesita/Pero por ahora está solita/Ella perrea sola.” (“She’ll call you if she needs you/But for now she is alone/She twerks alone.”)
“Yo Perreo Sola” comes from Bad Bunny’s latest album YHLQMDLG.
