Bad Bunny is Apple Music’s 2022 Artist of the Year

Global recording artist Bad Bunny has been announced as Apple Music’s Artist of the Year, in acknowledgement of the musician’s artistic excellence and influence on global culture in 2022. 

Released this past May, Un Verano Sin Ti, the artist’s sixth project in four years, is Apple Music’s most streamed album of 2022 and now the biggest Latin album of all time. And beyond the eye-popping numbers, Bad Bunny has truly ushered in a seismic shift in global pop over the past few years, says Oliver Schusser, Apple’s vice president of Apple Music and Beats. 

“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,” he adds.”We congratulate him on his record-breaking year and for continuing to bring Latin music to a massive global audience.”
