Bad Bunny was forced to cancel his AMAs set after testing positive for COVID-19.
The Latinx artist’s publicist, Sujeylee Solá of Acoustyle Communication, confirmed his positive test results to multiple outlets on Monday (November 23). One report was published by The Associated Press, who learned via his representative that “Bad Bunny wasn’t showing any major symptoms as of Monday” and that the star “was not granting any interviews” at this time.
Word of the Reggaeton musician’s coronavirus diagnosis came after he was awarded the trophy for Favorite Male Latin Artist and Favorite Latin Album for his second studio album, YHLQMDLG, at the 2020 American Music Awards last night.
Although the Puerto Rican singer-songwriter was unable to celebrate his first-ever AMAs presentation by delivering his number-one smash hit “Dakiti” alongside Jhay Cortez during the broadcast, he did present the Favorite Female Artist in the Latin category, which was given to Becky G.
The 26-year-old’s latest shows came just a week ago when he performed live at the 2020 Latin Grammys, where he delivered "Si Veo a Tu Mamá" and “Bichiyal.” By night’s end, the superstar went home with the Best Reggaeton Performance for his bop “Yo Perreo Sola.”
Bad Bunny is one of the latest music entertainers to fall ill with the wide-spreading novel virus. Among the recent musicians to have tested positive for COVID-19 include Jeremih, Ben Platt, Lee Brice, and Joe Budden.
