The professor says the artist has changed reggaeton music industry, challenging traditional forms of Latin masculinity.
“bad rabbit you have transformed reggaeton like no other artist. When you think of reggaeton, it’s hyper-masculine, machista is at its core. As well as bad rabbit came and turned him upside down,” Nate Rodriguez, MD, told CBS News.
“bad rabbit gives us another side of masculinity, and what masculinity can be, what it should be. How authentic it can be, how sweet it can be, how loving it can be,” he added.
