The Colombian rising star has signed an exclusive booking deal with Cardenas Marketing Network (CMN), according to Billboard.

Manuel Turizo

“It is a pride for us to be part of Manuel Turizo professional growth as well as the global euphoria that he has gradually succeeded in creating,” said Henry Cardenas, CEO of CMN on a press release. “Manuel has a great future and it is an honor to be a part of what is coming!”

Bad Bunny Signs Exclusive Booking Deal with Cardenas Marketing Network

Bad Bunny is ready to take Latin America by storm… 

The 23-year-old Puerto Rican reggaeton, a rising Trap star, has signed an exclusive booking deal with Cardenas Marketing Network (CMN) for select Latin American territories.

Bad Bunny

CMN, which also books Marc Anthony, Gente de Zona and Nicky Jam among other artists, will have exclusive booking rights for Bad Bunny in Bolivia, Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Uruguay and Venezuela.

The deal underscores the growing impact of Latin trap, which only a year ago, was the stuff of local clubs. Now, a roster of acts that includes Ozuna, Bryant Myers and Farruko is delivering the music to a much broader audience, and last April, the Billboard Latin Music Conference hosted its first-ever Latin trap panel.

“We are proud to add Bad Bunny to our booking roster, as he is continuing an upward trend playing in new venues, countries and continents,” said Henry Cardenas, CEO of Cardenas Marketing Network in a statement.

Bad Bunny is signed to indie Hear This Music. His current single, “Soy Peor,” is at No. 22 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart.

The song — a powerful get-even rant (“If I used to be an SOB now I’m worst, because of you,” says the chorus) — has generated dozens of “response” videos online from women who’ve created their own lyrics. In doing so, it underscores Bad Bunny’s growing popularity.

“This is a step in the right direction and I know it will help my career continue to grow exponentially,” said Bad Bunny in a statement.

“We are proud to add Gente de Zona to our booking roster as they are continuing an upward trend playing in new venues, countries and continents”, said Henry Cardenas, Cardenas Marketing Network CEO.

CMN has already begun preparations for Gente de Zona’s 2016 tour dates which will take the duo throughout Europe, Latin America, the U.S., and for the first time, the Middle East.

Regarding the partnership, Magnus’ CEO, Michael Vega said: “We are thrilled to have the CMN team aboard as partners as we continue to develop Gente de Zona’s profile throughout the world.”

CMN, based out in Chicago and Miami, produces Latin music concerts in the United States and the rest of the world for Marc Anthony, Juan Luis GuerraJuan GabrielChayanneAlejandro Fernández and more.

Since the release of “Bailando” (with Enrique Iglesias) in 2014, and “La Gozadera” with Marc Anthony in 2015, Gente de Zona has taken Cuba’s sounds and rhythm around the world with their music.

The duo is a four-time finalist for the Billboard Latin Music Awards 2016.
