Wikipedia Summary for Bad Bunny
Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio (born March 10, 1994), known by his stage name Bad Bunny, is a Puerto Rican rapper, singer, and songwriter. His music is often defined as Latin trap and reggaeton, but he has incorporated various other genres into his music, including rock, bachata, and soul. He is also known for his deep, slurred vocal style and his eclectic fashion sense. Throughout his career, Bad Bunny has frequently collaborated with artists such as J Balvin, Farruko, Residente, Arcángel, Jhay Cortez, and Daddy Yankee.
Born and raised in the municipality of Vega Baja, Puerto Rico, Bad Bunny gained popularity on SoundCloud and was eventually signed to a record label while working in a supermarket as a bagger and studying at the University of Puerto Rico at Arecibo. Following the release of his breakthrough single "Soy Peor" in late 2016, he rose to stardom after collaborating with Cardi B and Drake on the singles "I Like It" and "Mia", which charted on the US Billboard Hot 100 at number one and number three, respectively. His debut album X 100pre (2018) was awarded a Latin Grammy for Best Urban Music Album. His collaborative album with J Balvin, Oasis (2019), contains the popular singles "Qué Pretendes" and "La Canción".
In early 2020, he performed at the Super Bowl LIV halftime show as a guest, alongside Shakira and Jennifer Lopez, and became the first Latin urban music artist on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. During the year, Bad Bunny released his second solo studio album, YHLQMDLG (Yo hago lo que me da la gana)—which earned him a Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Album, the surprise compilation album Las que no iban a salir, and his third album, El Último Tour Del Mundo, which became the first all-Spanish-language album to top the US Billboard 200 and generated the Billboard Global 200 number-one single "Dakiti". He became the first non-English language act to be Spotify's most streamed artist of the year (2020).
In 2021, Bad Bunny began making guest appearances in the professional wrestling promotion WWE, where he won the WWE 24/7 Championship once and competed in and won a tag team match at its flagship event, WrestleMania 37 for which he received praise.
