Bad Bunny is nothing if not committed to his quest towards standing up against toxic masculinity and machismo culture in the music industry and Latinx community.
In his new music video “Yo Perreo Sola” (“I Twerk Alone”), the Puerto Rican trap artist gets a full drag makeover, showing off three iconic looks, including a red latex getup, a skintight animal print dress, and some sexy thigh-high boots.
The song and its accompany video are about letting women dance at the club without constantly being harassed by horny guys.
“I wrote it from the perspective of a woman,” the 26-year-old explains to Rolling Stone. “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.”
At the end the video, a message reads in Spanish: “If she doesn’t want to dance with you, respect her, she twerks alone.”
The video, released on Friday, has already amassed 40 million views on YouTube and is proving to be a huge hit with fans:
