Saturno World Tour. Throughout the night, Rauw filled the stage with special guests — but the biggest surprise came when he brought out his fiancée, the Spanish pop star Rosalía. The couple performed songs taken from their joint EP RR for the first time, helping Rauw round out an out-of-this-world show that celebrated  the arsenal of hits he’s amassed.

During the first of two nights he’s planned in Puerto Rico, Rauw zip-lined into the stadium wearing an alien-inspired getup. “Let the music speak, puñeta!” he yelled in Spanish to the crowd before charging into his career-spanning set. Rauw is unique among his urbano peers because he interprets his songs using his gravity-defying dance moves. Rauw recreated his choreography from music videos, including the Shakira-inspired robot dance. “Te Felicito” before moving into the sharp grooves from “Museo.” Rauw also brought back a fan-favorite move: his floor grinding for the alluring “2/Catorce.” Special guests the Jabbawockeez wowed everyone with their intricate formations, at one point even grouping up into a spaceship blaster for Rauw to climb.
