Sturdy.Co, the company that provided the background visuals for Benitos set, also noted to Rolling Stone that the artist didnt approve the appearance of that tweet. Our intention is to create light hearted designs that embody Bad Bunnys personality and amplify the experience he presents as a performer, reads an Instagram story from the company, which was viewed by Pitchfork. The request from the artist during the visuals for El Apagn performance was to use the image only and not text from the tweet, which we take responsibility for and correct it for Fridays performance. These visuals are a celebration of Bad Bunny and his dedication to empowering his native island, Puerto Rico.
When Bad Bunny shared the video for El Apagn, it was accompanied by a short documentary examining social and economic justice issues in Puerto Rico. He was joined at Coachellas first weekend by Post Malone, Jhay Cortez, and others.
