In the Beginning
Benito Antonio Martinez was born on March 10th, 1994 in the Almirante Sur barrio of Vega Baja, Puerto Rico. Vega Baja is located on the island of Puerto Rico. When Benito was a child, his mother would expose him to a variety of musical genres, including salsa, merengue, and ballads. These were some of his earliest musical memories. Benito, who was brought up alongside two younger brothers, later remarked that he preferred to remain at home with his family rather than out on the streets with friends. Benito was raised alongside two younger brothers.
Bad Bunny was raised in a traditional Catholic home and participated in the church choir up until the age of thirteen. In spite of the fact that he stopped singing in the choir, he was rapidly influenced by musicians such as Daddy Yankee. After some time had passed, he eventually started doing performances in front of his fellow pupils at the middle school. At this moment, he chose to go by the stage name “Bad Bunny” because of an old photograph that showed him wearing a bunny costume as a child while sporting an angry expression on his face.
Benito, when he was a bashful high school student, would make freestyle raps and perform them in front of his peers as a joke. He would rap about everything and everything. During this time period, he also developed a deep interest in skateboarding and professional wrestling. Bad Bunny was aware that he intended to pursue a career in music after completing his secondary education, regardless of the myriad of opinions and suggestions he received on his post-secondary opportunities. After graduating from high school, he immediately went on to pursue a degree in audiovisual communication at the University of Puerto Rico.
In 2016, Bad Bunny started publishing music on SoundCloud while both attending college and working as a bagger at a grocery store. Bad Bunny’s music was discovered there. In the end, DJ Lucian took notice of his song “Diles” and signed him to a record label known as Hear This Music. After that, Bad Bunny worked together with a production crew known as the Mambo Kingz. The Mambo Kingz was immediately taken aback by Bad Bunny’s distinctive sound as well as his manner of attire.
During the subsequent time period, Bad Bunny was able to achieve success by releasing many singles that peaked within the top ten of the Latin Charts. Bad Bunny soon became one of the most popular musicians in the Latin American trap genre. His meteoric rise to prominence was fueled by phenomenal streaming figures as well as hundreds of millions of views on YouTube. The success of singles such as “Soy Peor,” “Krippy Kush,” and “Ahora Me Llama” propelled him into the mainstream as an artist.
2017 was the year that he obtained additional contracts and began making appearances on television. In addition, Bad Bunny worked closely with a number of other Latin performers, including J Balvin, Prince Royce, and Ozuna. In 2018, he made his first foray into English-language music with the release of the single “I Like It.” Cardi B and Bunny contributed raps to the track, which were delivered in English, Spanglish, and Spanish respectively. It was “I Like It” that propelled him to the top of the charts for the first time, and it was Drake that he worked with again on “Mia.”
In 2018, Bad Bunny was getting ready to drop his debut album on his own label. This occurred not long after he parted ways with Hear This Music and obtained a recording contract with Rimas Entertainment. His previous record label did not contribute to the production process, and they also blocked Bunny from releasing an album. The album “X 100pre” was met with favorable reviews from music journalists, and he embarked on a lengthy tour in the years that followed its release.
After that, in 2019, Bad Bunny released “Oasis,” a follow-up single that featured a collaboration with J Balvin. During that particular year, he gave a performance at Coachella. Following his performance at the halftime show of the Super Bowl in the year 2020, Bunny issued a song titled “YHLQMDLG,” which is an acronym standing for “Yo hago lo que me da la gana.” He was lauded by reviewers for his ability to adapt to a variety of styles, and later that same year, he released a third album, which caught a lot of people off guard. During the time that the COVID-19 pandemic was going on, Bad Bunny recorded songs that dealt with topics such as isolation, being quarantined, and worry.
In the year 2017, Bad Bunny first made the acquaintance of Gabriela Berlingeri while they were out to dinner together with his family. The two began a romantic relationship, and over the course of the subsequent years, Gabriela became deeply involved with the musical and professional development of her boyfriend. She not only contributed scratch vocals to the recording of the song “Te Guste” but also shot him for the cover of “Rolling Stone.” According to statements made by Bad Bunny, Berlingeri provides him with close emotional support at a time “when I needed it the most.”
In January of 2023, Bad Bunny purchased a mansion in the Hollywood Hills for the price of $8.8 million. The estate spans 7,300 square feet and contains 8 bedrooms in addition to 7 bathrooms.
