Bad Bunny made his debut on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon back in September, where, on the first anniversary of Hurricane María, he denounced the Trump administration for its negligence and poor relief efforts. So it’s no surprise that El Conejo Malo would make the most of his second appearance on the late-night show – this time with an elaborate performance of “Mia,” his reggaeton-lite collaboration with Drake.

The performance took place as part of The Tonight Show‘s special episode filmed in Puerto Rico, which featured appearances from other major celebrities like Lin-Manuel Miranda, Chef José Andres, Ozuna, and José Feliciano. The Tonight Show team was spotted filming the musical number on the streets of Old San Juan over the weekend, and now we can finally see the full video of the performance. The Roots’ Questlove and Black Thought even make a cameo in the segment.

While many are praising Fallon’s well-intentioned efforts to highlight the island, others are concerned about the way Puerto Rico was represented in the episode, as well as the lack of Boricuas involved in the production. Many more are pointing out the absence of female guest stars.
