Bad Bunny Showcases Monaco

As an internationally known travel destination, celebrities often come and go from this part of Europe. Still, it appears one in particular, the superstar singer, Bad Bunny, made good use of his time when he was here during the recent Monaco Grand Prix as showcased in his latest music video aptly titled, “Monaco”.

The video initially begins in New York City’s most famous restaurant, Carbone, where the singer, Bad Bunny meets Al Pacino before the video then starts showing shots of the Principality of Monaco.

Under a multitude of dance beats, one begins to quickly recognize iconic Monaco hot spots, including those from the inside and outside of the beautiful Monte-Carlo Casino and even the famous Fairmont Hairpin, make an appearance between images of him on a superyacht with a plethora of female models against the backdrop of Monaco.

As a Puerto Rican superstar, he has consistently captivated audiences and pushed boundaries around the world with his distinctive blend of contemporary sounds and Latino beats, all of which have earned him numerous awards.

His latest album, ‘Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va A Pasar Mañana,’ (no one knows what will happen tomorrow), which ‘Monaco’ is a part of, was released earlier this month on October 13th to already outstanding reviews and sales as the album debuted with a staggering 145.9 million streams on its first day, making it the biggest debut of 2023. The Monaco song’s lyrics, merge music and his love for a luxurious lifestyle including the world of fast cars. In the chorus, he effortlessly raps a clever reference to Formula 1 drivers Max Verstappen and Sergio ‘Checo’ Perez, which adds a twist to the song, with Checo making a cameo appearance in the video and Bad Bunny trying on Verstappen’s racing helmet.

When the music video ends at the five-minute-mark, viewers are then taken “behind the scenes” to show how many of the Tik Tok-style shots of Monaco were shot, while between yachts, the Casino, the Monaco Grand Prix, and the large private villa which is located in the hills of Cannes.

Monaco’s presence in this music video not only highlights the allure of the Principality but also showcases its significance as a global destination for music, entertainment, and full-on luxury living.
