Bad Bunny is set to perform at WWE’s Royal Rumble on Sunday, Jan. 31, Billboard can confirm. The Puerto Rican star will perform “Booker T,” from his chart-topping album El Último Tour Del Mundo.
“Performing at the Royal Rumble is a childhood dream come true,” Bad Bunny said in a statement. “I have been a lifelong fan of WWE and I am excited to take the stage and entertain fans around the world.”
This performance will be the first time Bunny sings “Booker T” live. On the song, inspired by wrestling legend Booker T, Bunny sings about staying at the top of his game just like the wrestler, who stars in the singer-songwriter’s music video.
“Bad Bunny is at the top of the music industry, and a pop culture icon with strong ties to WWE and our fans around the world,” said Neil Lawi, senior vice president and general manager, WWE Music Group. “We are thrilled to provide a global platform for his first-ever live performance of ‘Booker T’ as we kick off the road to WrestleMania.”
“Booker T” has so far peaked at No. 8 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs hcart, back in December, while the album itself made history by becoming the first all-Spanish album to hit No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200.
Royal Rumble will stream live Jan. 31 on WWE Network at 7 p.m. ET.Credit: Original article published here.
