Bad Bunny and J Balvin have made their VMA debut. After Balvin nabbed the (still awkwardly titled) "Best Latin" award earlier in the night for his collaboration with Rosalía and El Guincho, "Con Altura," he made it back to the stage to join Bad Bunny for a delightfully wonky and cartoonish interpretation of "Qué Pretendes." The track initially appeared on their joint project Oasis, which dropped earlier this summer. Watch the performance below.
