Bad Bunny was forced to bail on his performance at Sunday night’s (Nov. 22) 2020 American Music Awards after testing positive for COVID-19. The singer had a busy week leading up to the revelation that he has joined the nearly 59 million other people around the world who’ve tested positive for the still raging novel coronavirus. The Puerto Rican artist, whose “Dakiti” collaboration with Jhay Cortez currently tops Billboard’s Global 200 chart, won Favorite Male Latin artist and Favorite Latin album at the AMAs for his YHLQMDLG album.
Bunny, who together with Cortez was slated to close the AMAs with “Dakiti,” had to cancel his performance after testing positive for COVID.
Still, there was plenty of Bunny to go around during the show with the premiere of his new Flamin’ Hot Crunchy Cheetos commercial. In addition to the actual campaign, Cheetos also joined with Bunny for its “Deja Tu Huella” campaign and will give back $500,000 to the Latin community through Bunny’s Good Bunny Foundation.
Sources tell Billboard Bunny is weathering the virus well.
