Forbes 30 Under 30 names Bad Bunny the “King of Pop”


The Forbes magazine 30 Under 30 has been released and the cover of the magazine is Benito Martínez Ocasio famously known as Bad Bunny who has been given the title the “King of Pop.” 

On an Instagram post made by Forbes, the caption reads: 

“If there’s one constant about Bad Bunny, who is 29, it’s that whatever he creates becomes a world-wide hit.


Over the last three years, the alumnus of the 2019 Forbes 30 Under 30 list has been Spotify’s most-streamed artist, with 35.9 billion plays. His YouTube channel has attracted more than 32 billion views—more than those of Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran and, yes, Taylor Swift. He has won three Grammys and 11 Latin Grammys. In April, he made history as the first Latin artist to headline the Coachella music festival.


And he’s done it all while singing solely in Spanish. “Spanish is part of me, it’s in my DNA,” he says. “I like speaking it wherever I go—not to force it on people, but because it’s who I am.”

In this issue, he mentions that 2023 was a year in which he focused a lot on himself, but that he wants to be more consistent in the upcoming year and focus on his music. He talked about his new album which he mentioned that he made mainly thinking about his fans, not himself. His fans had been asking for the “Trap Bad Bunny” and this is what he wanted to deliver to his fans, he mentions that due to their loyalty, being a part of his growth, and his evolution he felt that they deserved that production from him.

Bad Bunny was the highest-paid Latin entertainer of 2022, making over $88 million in that year alone. This is something that comes as no surprise to the public since Benito made an impact with his music all over the world.
