Bad Bunny is coming off of the blockbuster success of his fifth studio album, Un Verano Sin Ti, which debuted atop the Billboard 200 chart, and at the time marked the year’s biggest week for any album: 274,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending May 12, according to Luminate.

This year’s iteration of the two-day music festival marks its 10-year anniversary, since its debut with founder Jay-Z as the headliner, alongside rock band Pearl Jam. On top of bringing superstar and up-and-coming musicians alike to Philly, Made In America also generated over $150 million in economic impact for the city since its inception in 2012. On Labor Day weekend, the festival will highlight groups including Black Voters Matter, HeadCount, ACCT Philly Animal Welfare and United in Community.

Natti Natasha Teams Up with El Alfa & Chimbala for New Dembow Track “WOW BB”

Natti Natasha is bringing the wow

The 35-year-old Dominican singer has teamed up with El Alfa and Chimbala – two pioneers of the dembow movement – to release the new single “WOW BB.”

Natti NatashaThe flirtatious track, produced by B-One, DJ Luian, Mambo Kingz and Raphy Pina, is a playful dembow track about two men who are trying to swoon the same girl.

She, however, is independent and unimpressed by their coquetry.

More than a great summer anthem, “WOW BB” flaunts pure Dominican power as the three artists unite their distinct vocals and flow.

The three artists officially debuted the song on television at the 2022 Premio Lo Nuestro.
