Bad Bunny is healthy and doing well! The 26-year-old Latinx musician, whose real name is Benito Ocasio, appeared on Wednesday’s episode of “The Late Late Show With James Corden” via video chat, and opened up about his recent COVID-19 diagnosis.
“I feel great, thank god. I already tested negative, so I’m so happy,” the “Una Vez” singer said. “I feel great. I feel perfect.”
Late last month, Bad Bunny missed his planned performance at the American Music Awards, later revealing that he’d tested positive for COVID-19.
The artist, who is from Puerto Rico, was recently nominated for two 2021 GRAMMY Awards, and shared that it means more to him when he’s singing in his native language.
“It was crazy, but obviously, I’m so happy and grateful to the Academy and fans and people who support me,” he said. “Singing in my language, Spanish, and being nominated to the GRAMMYs is something that I feel so proud and happy.”
He also recently became the top streamed artist this year on Spotify, which he called “locura,” the Spanish word for madness.
“That’s so crazy, you know? Five years ago, I was so excited when I get my first, I don’t know, 5,000 plays and now I am the no. 1 artist on Spotify around the world,” he said. “I guess, just be grateful, you know? Because this is a dream come true and I’m doing what I love.”
