Last Thursday, July 18, the singer Bad Bunny published a video through Instagram where he announced to his followers that he will retire from music, in view of the political climate that Puerto Rico is experiencing.
The reggueatonero explained that the reason behind his decision is because he feels that the people of his native island need him. “It’s time to wake up, Boricua! To my fans from other countries I hope you understand me. It is not time to take out or promote music, “the interpreter wrote in the description of his video.
In the same way, the Puerto Rican said he joined the demonstrations against the PR governor, Ricardo Rossello, who is in the midst of a political scandal after a chat between him and other members of his cabinet was leaked. They expressed sexist, homophobic and offensive messages.
“I’m going to cancel everything. I’m going to give my career a break. I do not have heart or mind right now to make music, or to make a damn, “Bad Bunny said in his video.

"y que se enteren to' los continentes…" ✊🏻 En nombre de todos los puertorriqueños fuera de la isla y de la gran cantidad de BORICUAS que hay en BARCELONA, @ricardorossello RENUNCIA!!!!! NO NOS VAMOS A QUITAR!!!! HASTA QUE TE QUITES TÚ!!!! ✊🏻🇵🇷🔥 EL MUNDO ENTERO EXIGE TU RENUNCIA!!!!
The decision was made after the singer saw the news about Puerto Rico while he was on the island and when he heard about the indignation of his people he felt shame for his government, but pride for the determination and rebellion of the citizens.
“You have to go out every day to the street, you have to keep showing up. We can not turn our backs on the people, “said the interpreter of” Callaíta “after announcing that he will suspend the presentations he has scheduled to support his people.
