Puerto Rican rapper, Bad Bunny, is one of the many rappers emerging from the depths of their early careers.
Benito Antonio Martinez Ocasio, born on the 10th of March, 1994, in San Juan, Puerto Rico, the 26-year-old rapper has been compared to a few of his fellow reggaeton artists––but none better than J. Balvin. Despite the young experience and the huge gap between him and the talents of his genre, Bad Bunny has steadily been rising––indicating that he’s been on the right track ever since.
Of course, everyone in the world wants to become rich––rappers aren’t exempted from the list. Among the best rappers in the industry like Drake, Kanye West, Diddy, Dr. Dre, and Jay-Z, their net worths aren’t as big as you’d expect it to be considering that their names are always on screens. Either way, what they have in a day surpasses any normal person’s intake for a year. That, alone, is impressive enough.
If Bad Bunny dreams of becoming a part of this list, he has to further develop his art.
After uploading and funding success in music streaming and sharing platform, Soundcloud, Bad Bunny released his breakthrough single through ‘Soy Peor’ in 2016. As of December 2020, Bad Bunny’s streaming numbers on both Spotify and YouTube are through the roof––garnering over a billion streams combined through his hit songs.
Throughout his career, he’s been collaborating with only the best and those with who his genre has close ties. For example, Farruko, Ozuna, Arcangel, Nengo Flow, DJ Luian, and Mambo King for his 2016 hit single, ‘Diles.’ Alongside that, he’s also collaborated with big names such as Cardi B and J. Balvin for ‘I Like It’ in 2018 and Drake for ‘Mia’ which was also released the same year.
With a fruitful career ahead of him, Bad Bunny has already been winning awards left and right. During the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, he won ‘Song of the Summer’ while the 2020 American Music Awards rewarded him for being the favorite male Latin artist and favorite Latin album in ‘YHLQMDLG.’ During the 2020 Billboard Latin Music Awards, he won artist and songwriter of the year.
With no shadow of a doubt, Bad Bunny is a force to be reckoned with in the Latin scene of the music industry. However, that hasn’t stopped him from remaining humble. In fact, he held a concert on top of a truck in New York as a tribute to the frontliners who are sacrificing their lives every day against the pandemic in September.
