As for Bad Bunny’s performance, the artist shocked fans with a performance on top of a moving bus. The whole thing was very New York City, with Benito standing on top of a double decker bus just like a lot of tourists do in the city. The singer was driven through a number of neighborhoods, including Washington Heights, as fans waited outside to see him drive by while performing some of his biggest hits.
