Bad Bunny is undoubtedly the most significant musical phenomenon to emerge in recent years. Together with Dj Luian, he has embarked on a voyage that has transformed him into a sort of trap-world King Midas, transforming everything he comes into contact with into gold. Many dismissed him as a transitory fad when he released his initial tracks, but since 2016, he has maintained his meteoric rise to the top of the charts.
On the other hand, Bunny is a human being just like us. And as a result of his widespread public exposure, little is known about him outside of his art. Here are some interesting facts about him that you probably didn’t know.
His artistic name
The singer Benito Antonio Martnez Ocasio, better known by his stage name Bad Bunny, chose this creative alias because of a childhood photograph of himself in which he is dressed as a bunny with a rude expression on his face inspired him to use it. We don’t know if it’s because of his stage name or just his music, but Bad bunny tickets are among the most searched music-related things nowadays.
While growing up, Benito grew up watching wrestling with his father, who was an avid fan of the sport. He inherited his father’s enthusiasm for professional wrestling. One of the first things he did when he acquired financial means was to attend a WWE performance, one of the longest-running and most popular professional wrestling competitions in the world.
Even in his forties, during which time he has lived with his fiancée in an Airbnb in the north of the island, his passion for sports has not waned. He has not stopped watching these shows throughout his life. A jewelry designer, Gabriela Berlingeri, is his long-term companion, with whom he has been involved since they met in a Puerto Rican restaurant three years ago and fell in love with each other.
Scourge of politicians
As soon as the governor of Puerto Rico, Ricardo Rosselló made rude statements on Telegram against politicians, journalists, and artists, as well as members of the LGTBI community; Bad Bunny came out to demand his resignation, which was granted within a few weeks of the comments being public.
His previous job
Like his compatriot Nicky Jam, Bad Bunny began his career at the bottom of the food chain before rising to international stardom. He too worked in a supermarket before becoming a music sensation.
Bad Bunny is a native of the island of Puerto Rico. He grew up in the Almirante Sur neighborhood of Vega Baja, Puerto Rico, where he was born and raised. A truck driver, his father worked as a truck driver, while his mother worked as a school teacher.
He loves painting his nails
According to his Instagram account, he said that a beauty parlor in Oviedo had refused to paint his nails because he is a man at the end of July 2018.
The nail salon informed him that they only worked with women and provided him with the address of another establishment that was open to both men and women. In any event, one thing is certain: Benito is a huge fan of nail polish, which he collects in large quantities at his home.
During his time working as a bag boy at Econo Supermarkets in 2016, Bad Bunny began publishing music on SoundCloud on his own initiative.
Hear This Music was formed after DJ Luian heard his song “Diles” on the internet and decided to sign him to his record company.
When Bunny released his first single, “Soy Peor,” he quickly rose to the top of the Latin Trap charts as well as the worldwide charts. He also collaborated with Becky G on the song “Mayores.” In addition, he has collaborated with well-known artists such as Nicki Minaj, Daddy Yankee, and Maluma. He has now signed with Rimas Entertainment and Universal Latin and other labels.
The Bottom Line
After only a few years in the music industry, Bad Bunny has achieved tremendous success, as his music has been heard not only in his home country of Puerto Rico and Latin America but also throughout the United States and Europe, thanks to his unique sound. In the process, the Puerto Rican has established himself as one of the most influential artists in the urban genre and one of the founders of Latin Trap.
