Apparently, those singles get purchased, downloaded and streamed so much during the holidays, it's enough for them to place on the year end chart.

I'm so out of it, the only reason I've ever even heard of Bad Bunny is that Corona commercial he's in with Snoop Dogg. I love that commercial, but that doesn't win me any hipness points.

He was the subject of a NYT Magazine profile some time back, but I didn't read it.

I thought Bad Bunny was that very controversial film with Vincent Gallo...
