Bad Bunny Personal Life
Bad Bunny was born on 10 March 1994 in Almirante Sur, Puerto Rico to Tito Martínez, a truck driver, and his mother, Lysaurie Ocasio, is a retired schoolteacher. Bunny was raised in the Almirante Sur barrio of Vega Baja, Puerto Rico. He has two younger brothers, Bernie and Bysael. He said: “I wasn’t the kid who lived on the streets. I loved being at home with my family.”
As a child, he attended church every week with his devout Catholic mother and sang in the church choir until he was 13. After leaving the choir, he became interested in the artists he heard on the radio, especially Daddy Yankee and Héctor Lavoe.
His stage name originally came from a time when he was forced to wear a bunny suit and was angry about it. Speaking about Puerto Rico’s music industry, he said, “I’m from Vega Baja, a small area that’s not the big city of San Juan, where most of the artists in that genre come from.”
Bad Bunny Career
He started to write and create his interpretations at the age of 14, until, in 2013, he began to publish his songs through SoundCloud, including “Get” in 2013, “Tentación” in 2014, “Just let me Know” in 2015, among others. In 2016, his song “Diles” caught the attention of DJ Luian from SoundCloud who signed him to his record label, Hear This Music. His single “Soy Peor” reached number 19 on the Hot Latin Songs chart.
Bad Bunny’s May 2017 collaboration with Karol G, “Ahora Me Llama”, reached number 10 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart. It was listed on “Alt. Latino’s Favorites: The Songs Of 2017” as one of the best Latin songs of 2017. In the summer of 2017, Bad Bunny signed a booking deal with Cardenas Marketing Network (CMN) for several Latin American countries. Starting in November 2017, Bad Bunny hosted Beats 1’s first Spanish-language show, Trap Kingz. The remix of “Te Boté” with Ozuna and Nicky Jam reached number one on the Hot Latin Songs chart.
In May 2018, American rapper Cardi B released a collaboration with Bad Bunny and J Balvin, “I Like It”. On October 11, 2018, Bad Bunny released “Mia” with Drake, which reached number five on the Billboard Hot 100.

On the final song on the album, “and;3”, the artist announced his intention to retire after releasing one more album with the lyric “In nine months I’ll release another, to retire calmly like Miguel Cotto”, referencing the retirement of the Puerto Rican boxer. He noted that the stress of fame has had a negative impact on his mental health.
