Peso Pluma was among the performers at the 2023 Billboard Music Awards. During his performance of “Rubicón,” the Mexican singer was joined by boxing icon Mike Tyson, who previously appeared in a promotional spot for Pluma’s album Génesis declaring himself a fan. Peso Pluma also received the Top Latin Song award. Watch the performance and his acceptance speech below.
This year’s Billboard Awards also featured the K-pop group NewJeans’ first-ever U.S. award show performance, and somehow, Mariah Carey’s first time performing “All I Want for Christmas Is You” on an award show. Morgan Wallen, Karol G, Tate McRae, Bebe Rexha and David Guetta are also performing tonight.
