Cardi B, J Balvin & Bad Bunny's 'I Like It' Video
Three of the year's breakout stars come together in their sexy 'I Like It' video.

Bad Bunny is one of the breakout stars of 2018 courtesy of Latin smashes like “Chambea,” “Mayores” and “Estamos Bien” as well as his killer feature on Cardi B’s chart-topping “I Like It.” The 24-year-old’s latest coup is landing on the cover of The Fader — complete with an fascinating profile and stylish, refreshingly oddball photo shoot by Stefan Ruiz. In the interview, the Puerto Rican trap star opens up about his long-awaited debut LP. “What I want for this record — the sounds, the vibe, the ambiance — are more of the things I like, more of me, more of what I am, and more of what I think is my generation, those born in the ’90s and the ’00s.”

“From childhood, I’ve had a lot of goals of things that I want to do in music,” he continues. “When I release my record, there are going to be more songs to give people an understanding that my musical concept can be different — but also me.” Bad Bunny also talks about his career goals. “In two years I’ve turned into a star, and that tells me that I can do a lot,” the hitmaker muses. “My only goal here is that the people will always remember my music and that they enjoy my music 10 years, 20 years from now. That people have great memories of these songs, and that they won’t die. For real. I’m ready to make songs that don’t die.” There’s nothing wrong with a little ambition.
