BELatina’s Weekend Briefing is a weekly summary of the most important news you should know before starting the week.

Another weekend passes quickly, and the struggle to get the sheets off our backs and face this lazy Monday with joy returns.

And nothing better than good news to start the day. From Bad Bunny and Lin-Manuel Miranda to Idaho College, here’s what you need to know today.

Bad Bunny Keeps Giving Away Surprises

Benito dropped his new song “100 Millones” last Friday night. The song is in collaboration with Luar La L and is Bunny’s first release of new material this year.

“100 Millones” is the follow-up to the single “La Noche De Anoche” featuring Rosalia.

Lin-Manuel Miranda Dots the I’s and Crosses the T’s

In an interview with Indie Wire, Lin-Manuel Miranda talked about the controversial term “Latinx” and “the limits of defining 32 different f*cking countries with one Word.”

“When I was in high school, every week, the Latino club would debate ‘Latino’ versus ‘Hispanic,'” he said. “Now ‘Hispanic’ has really fallen into the rearview, and it’s all these variations on the rear-end of the word.”

Idaho’s First Hispanic-Serving Institution

The College of Southern Idaho has become the first in the state to be designated by the federal government as a Hispanic-serving institution, the Associated Press reported.

The designation comes from the U.S. Department of Education and means at least a quarter of the college’s full-time students are Hispanic, Boise State Public Radio reported Thursday. The designation allows the school to apply for more federal grants to better serve its students.
