“We’re thrilled to celebrate the achievements of Bad Bunny, whose influence on every corner of culture could not be ignored in 2022”

Puerto Rican rapper and singer Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, most known as Bad Bunny, has been named Apple Music artist of the year for 2022, as the company highlighted some of the achievements he reached.

“Watching Bad Bunny ascend from an Apple Music Up Next artist in 2018 to our Artist of the Year this year has been nothing short of extraordinary. We congratulate him on his record-breaking year and for continuing to bring Latin music to a massive global audience.”

Latin Music Movement

Benito told Apple Music “When I started, I didn’t have a global fan base. I’m grateful for everything I’ve accomplished and everything I’ve experienced. The Latin music movement has grown so much. I would never take full credit or say, ‘It’s because of me.’ No, it’s every one of us. A whole generation. Our energy and presence is always felt.”
