Bad Bunny opened the 2023 Grammy Awards on Sunday night (Feb. 5) with a party-starting performance of his tracks “El Apagon” and “Después de la Playa.” Far beyond, his energetic set—where he was joined by around 40 dancers and a 10-musician live band—was a homage to the Caribbean culture, especially Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.
In the audience, an amused Taylor Swift was seen shimmying her shoulders and swaying her hips to the fast-paced mambo and merengue fusion.
A full-fledged party track about making plans after the beach, “Después de la Playa” is one of the most experimental tracks on Bunny’s Un Verano Sin Ti, which nabbed the Grammy award for best música urbana album. The historic set debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and all 23 tracks entered the top 25 on Billboard‘s Hot Latin Songs chart. “Despues de la Playa” debuted at No. 3.

Baby, you live far But however, I’ll look for you Because you’re fine and you deserve it I want to give it to you in front of the ocean So that the fishes can get happy And you’re wet, I’m ready to ride you Relax, I know this is once in a while The other time you got drunk on the beach And asked me to kiss you

Ey-ey-ey-ey-ey How exciting Ey-ey-ey-ey-ey Don’t turn off Ey-ey-ey-ey Where are we going? Where are we going? Tell me, after here Wait, Who’s this guy? Who’s getting beers from our cooler, you Are you with us? Oh, okey-okey-okey-okey, go for it
