In 2022, Bad Bunny dominated the music streaming world with his album Un Verano Sin Ti, the most streamed album on Apple Music. The Puerto Rican rapper, born Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, has had a seismic influence on global pop over the last few years, collaborating with everyone from Drake to J Balvin and Cardi B. 

 Bad Bunny's rise to superstardom began with his breakthrough hit "Soy Peor," which catapulted him into mainstream success in 2017. Since then, he's garnered critical acclaim for albums such as X 100PRE and YHLQMDLG, becoming one of the most prominent Latin artists of all time by streams worldwide on Apple Music. 

 Now, Bad Bunny is taking over Apple Music's La Fórmula playlist with handpicked favorite tracks. In addition to featuring his own music, the playlist includes artists like Jhay Cortez and Dalex, who have collaborated with Bad Bunny in the past. 

 Not only does Bad Bunny dominate the music streaming world, but he also uses his platform for activism and speaking out against injustices in his community. He is a vocal supporter of LGBTQ rights and gender equality, often incorporating these themes into his music videos and live performances. 

 There's no slowing down for Bad Bunny as he continues to dominate the global pop scene and use his platform for good. With Un Verano Sin Ti being just one of many successful albums under his belt, fans can't wait to see what he has in store next.
