Bad Bunny is real Playboy.
The 26-year-old Puerto Rican Latin trap and reggaeton singer and rapper has become Playboy’s first-ever digital cover star with two covers.
In the brand’s 66-year lifespan, Bad Bunny also becomes the only man, besides the late Hugh Hefner, to appear solo on the cover.
In a story dubbed “Bad Bunny Is Not Playing God,” the “Yo Perreo Sola” singer opens up about his career and his surprise 2020 albums,
including the success of his second album “Yo Hago Lo Que Me Da La Gana,” which shot to No.2 on the Billboard 200 chart, and became the highest-charting all-Spanish language album of all time, with tracks that tackle sexism head-on.
“The music industry and society in general (treat women) like they’re nothing,” he is quoted as saying. “Women are human beings and deserve respect and the same treatment as anybody else.”
And he opens up about being a queer ally in the world of reggaeton and Latin hip-hop.
“I do all of this and I’m not even sure what I cause,” he admitted. “It’s not until someone comes up to me and tells me, ‘Man, thank you,’ that I realize the impact.”
Of sex, Bad Bunny told Playboy it’s a “giant world.”
“Everyone is free to see it as they want and do it with whoever they want, however they want, with infinite possibilities. In the end, we are human beings. Everybody feels, everybody falls in love with whoever they’re meant to,” he expressed.
Shot in Miami before the global pandemic hit by STILLZ, the cover story’s original photos show Bad Bunny dressed as a Greek God with his nails on fleek and bedazzled with the iconic Playboy bunny logo.

The digital feature comes amid significant changes at Playboy. In March, the magazine announced it would suspend its US print edition for the rest of the year, citing “disruption” in production and supply chains caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
