Bad Bunny learned about the award during the concert. While presenting in New York City, the singer learned he’d won the Artist of the Year award, so he shared the award with his fans. “With all my heart, words fail me to describe how I feel, the pride I feel to be at Yankee Stadium and to receive this award,” he said upon accepting the award from MTV. He stressed that he never gave up and always believed that he could become an icon without having to change because he was occasionally told to sing in English, which he refused. “I believed from the start that I could become great, that I could become one of the best singers in the world, without having to change my culture, my language, my language, my jargon; I’m Benito Antonio Martínez de Puerto Rico for the whole world,” said the artist. As for the nominations for “Bad Rabbit” at the MTV Video Music Awards, the Puerto Rican artist shared a list with Drake, Ed Sheeran, Harry Styles, Jack Harlow, Lil Nas X and Lizzo for that award.
Additionally, Bad Bunny was also nominated for Best Song of the Summer, Best Latin Video, and Best Album of the Year, although he didn’t receive any of those awards. It may interest you: Lourdes León, Madonna’s daughter, releases her debut song with her mother’s approval
