Tonight, reggaeton is taking over the T.V. airwaves and you won’t want to miss it. Residente and Bad Bunny are dropping by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon as musical guests to perform their joint perreo banger “Bellacoso,” included in Residente’s upcoming still-untitled sophomore solo album. There’s no word on what to expect from the performances, but we’re praying for some of that incredible dancing featured on the song’s music video.

Meanwhile, the former Calle 13 frontman has shared a picture of him and Benito – or as the song says, “los gallos del nido” – on his Instagram account to build up excitement around tonight’s event.

For Residente, tonight’s performance on The Tonight Show marks his first late night TV appearance in the US. On the other hand, Bad Bunny actually debuted on Jimmy Fallon’s show in September 2018 with “Estamos Bien,” dedicated to the victims of Hurricane Maria. He returned in January this year with a Carnival-like performance of “Mia” shot in the streets of Old San Juan alongside the T.V. host, members of The Roots, and a legion of dancers, musicians, and fans.

“Bellacoso” is the second collaboration between the Boricua pair, following their hip-hop protest anthem with iLe “Afilando los Cuchillos,” written against former P.R. governor Ricardo Roselló.
