Last night (Feb. 9), Arcángel wrapped up his seven sold-out concerts at El Coliseo in Puerto Rico. For the final concert, the Dominican-American icon was joined onstage by surprise guest Bad Bunny.

On Feb. 2, Arcángel kicked off his first of seven Just-In-Time concerts. The title of the shows was a tribute to his younger brother, Justin Santos, who was killed in a car accident by a reported drunk driver in Nov. 2021. At the shows, Arcángel also sold merchandise designed by the Puerto Rican artist Marcos Alvarado. One of the shirts featured a horse jockey holding a banner that read: “Justin’s Legacy.”

Fresh off his performance at the Grammy Awards earlier this week, Bad Bunny returned to Puerto Rico to join Arcángel last night. When Arcángel drove an ice cream truck onstage, Bad Bunny emerged from the vehicle. Arcángel and Benito threw it back to one of their first collaborations, “Tú No Vive Así” from 2016. 

Both artists then drove the crowd wild when they performed “La Jumpa” together from Arcángel’s Sr. Santos album. Bad Bunny stopped the performance to explain the line “Una leyenda que no volver a nacer,” which he said was dedicated to Arcángel. He thanked Arcángel for his impact on his career and the reggaeton genre.

Arcángel’s final Just-In-Time concert included more special guests. Puerto Rican rapper Eladio Carrión came out to perform “Papa Noel.” Arcángel also reunited with artists he came up with in the 2000s, including Franco “El Gorila” and Jowell y Randy. He also brought out De La Ghetto to perform some of their classics together.

During the run of the seven concerts this past week, Young Miko, Myke Towers, and Yovngchimi appeared as special guests. Bad Bunny spent most of his week in L.A. following his appearance at the Grammy Awards. On Feb. 7, he was at the Lakers game to witness LeBron James make history as the NBA’s all-time leading scorer.
