When I was there, many fans were waiting for me outside the hotel. Some loved me and even cried. I love that either. To be honest, at first, when I saw a fan crying, I didn’t understand why. But now I understand it. Some people have been listening to me for years, “I became part of their lives and then it became crazy for them to see me.”
“This made me think that the same thing would happen to me the day I saw Benito [el nombre real de Bad Bunny] Personally. I I like him very much, but I don’t know him yet. I don’t know how I will react when it is my turn to greet him. “But there is a part of me that thinks he can cry,” he explains with great honesty.

Believers They were my first audience and I think they were some of the best viewers I ever had, because I could see My mother is crying from afar So I always felt close to Christian music. For example, i I really like Iniego Quintero And I would like to do something with it, because yes… I also owe my whole career to God.”

But it exists… And love is not to blame for that failure, the blame lies with the people who wronged you. And I, through my music and even through my networks, try to show that to people “Everything will be okay if you surround yourself with love.” I confess.
“I hope people listen to me and say “I want to be like this man, I want to continue to believe in love. Despite everything, I want to keep fighting, I want to keep moving forward.

If I want to show how happy I am with a woman, I do it. No one controls that. “This is my other mission… although I won’t tell you that it’s easy.”
Wheeler is proud to own it Authentic personality. However, he had to develop his confidence and security. “I experienced bullying and decided to speak out.

Yes, there are those who will hurt you, but you have two choices: to be what they want or to become someone like me. That’s why I always tell everyone: Be careful with the person you attack, “You never know if you might upset the next reggaeton star,” he concludes.
